Ajahn Wimoak Workshop

Sun 22nd Feb, 2009, Ajahn Wimoak will be leading another one day workshop in meditation based on the mindfulness of the body (Kayakatasati) on Sukhumvit Soi 1 at the Beautiful Boutique hotel Ariyasom Villa.

The program, including lunch, is free of charge.

Ajahn Wimoak is a Thai monk, currently finishing a PhD in Buddhsim in English. He is also an accomplished meditator and has very good English. He is able to put dhamma into accessible words based on direct experience, which is in contrast to the formulaic approach of most Thai monks. Please call ahead of time to check on space availability (limited to about 40 people).

Note: the schedule is rarely adhered to, except for lunch which is at the correct time. However, please arrive before time rather than disturbing proceedings by arriving late and entering after everything has started.

    It seems to me Ajahn Wimoak offered an english meditaion program every 3rd sunday of the month @ soi 1 starting 8am. Does anybody have further info on what the schedule/format would look like (ie time ending…)

  2. Cittasamvaro says:

    I gather he is going to try and do something every month, one day in Thai and another in English. He is a little haphazard when it comes to schedules, and does not really stick to them. The starting time is fairly definite, and the meal time for sure. It seems that the end time is more flexible. Certainly it is over by late afternoon, by 4 or 5pm.

    He does have other things going on, not least of which is his PhD and trips to be with his own teachers, so it is not quite a definite monthly program.
