This program has now finished – we will look at restarting a weekly meditation in Nov 2010
Bangkok Meditation Group
Every Monday – “Just Meditation” at Ariaysom Villa.
Monday group meditation, open for all, free style – you are welcome to follow your own meditation system, or to get instructions for meditation before or after the group sitting. It’s a nice chance to come and meet/sit together with meditators from all lineages without taking up the whole evening. Most of us regulars are there early, so come along and chat a while in the library before time…
Kindly hosted free of charge by the beautiful Ariyasom Villa, a 10 minute walk from Ploen Chit BTS Station, and led by Phra Cittasamvaro, a British monk.
6:30 pm gather in the Library (some coffee and refreshments served)
before 7 pm go up to the Dhamma Hall
7-7:50 Meditation (simple instructions for any beginners if needed)
In fact, some of us regulars will be there early, and Phra Cittasamvaro will be there from 5pm each week in case there is anyone who would like to talk a little about meditation or other issues beforehand.
There is also be a yoga session before the meditation for those who wish to try it. The yoga goes from 5:30 to 6:30 pm and is taught by Japanese instructor Natsuko. Inquire at Ariyasom on Mondays.
Could not be easier – go down Sukhumvit Soi One, right to the end, and Ariyasom is on the left.
