The BIA is promoting the following program – below find the information as received (note this is not arranged by Little Bangkok Sangha)
‘Mindfulness with Sound’
Explore consciousness and sound in an experimental performance and meditation session by composer Gary Hall.
Focus the mind using music, as well as natural and human sounds, for one hour at sunset. Gentle original and improvised music, joining together with the shifting light and sounds of evening, leads us toward calmness of mind and body.
Session leader and performer Gary Hall, with over 30 years experience of electronic music composition, has developed a unique approach to meditative sound. Using techniques of improvisation as well as composition, a dense ambient sound field is both object and facilitator of concentration. Come and join us.
Monday 21 February, 18:00 in Meditation/Meeting Hall #1 (2nd Floor)
And Gary adds:
The plan is to regularize with sitting/performances on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. So far it’s me solo, but the plan is to bring in other collaborators and artists as things progress.
This event is at the brand new Buddhadasa Indapanno Archives in Suan Rot Fai, near Mor Chit BTS station.
This is the branch of Suan Mokh where the famous Buddhadasa Bhikkhu lived and taught for many years, and which is still a majour item on the spiritual tourism of Thailand agenda.
The place is beautiful, and vast. Overlooking the parklands near Mor Chit BTS, the complex includes a library, book shop, huge verandah overhanging the lake, and lots of art and sculpture. In following years this place will definitely become the most vital centre of Buddhism in Bangkok. Expect a lot of great events to happen here.
Go to Mor Chit BTS Station and walk through the park for about 20 minutes. Motorcycles are an option – but come on, you could do with the exercise, and it is a lovely park! You can also take a taxi from the BTS for about 45 baht. MRT users can go to Chatuchak Station or Pahonyothin station exit 3 (which is a slightly closer, but less pleasant walk)
