Her studies of Thai writers and Thai culture have given her a special vantage point of the topic meant to serve as an introduction to various meditation techniques and the five most famous meditation masters of Thailand.

The WBU is open most office hours, and the building can be entered from the rear of the building from the Soi. The front gate that faces the park is generally locked, but there is access to walk through to the rear.
