Monday Meditation … back again

Free-style Meditation

Monday evenings …

For 8 weeks starting Monday June 6th  we will be holding weekly meditation at a new venue near Asoke Junction (which is on both BTS and MRT lines). Meditation will be led by Phra Pandit – British monk for 15 years, and organsier of Little Bangkok Sangha.

After Monday July 25th, we will continue Monday meetings, but at Sukhmvit 24 for the annual Rains retreat talks and meditation.

We will meet just for meditation. All people are welcome to join and sit together, as well as meet some of the other friendly yoga/meditation folk in Bangkok. You can be from any lineage of meditation, it doesn’t matter. You are welcome to continue with your own system.

For any beginners if you come a little early you can get some basic meditation instructions and pointers before the session.

Timing :

Meet 6:15 ish at the venue

6:55-7:35 silent meditation followed by brief Metta (living kindness) meditaion

7:45 finish (feel free to join some of the other yogis for dinner or coffee in town)

No need to book in advance. There is no charge for these meetings.

Venue

The place is a few minutes walk from Asoke: Go to Asoke BTS (aka Skytrain) station, or Asoke MRT station. Walk along Sukhumvit to Soi 18. Immediately on the right as you enter the soi is a right turn behind the 7-eleven, towards a big apartment block – we will be in a shop at the base of the apartment block.

Venue is less than 300 meters from Asoke BTS

There is paid parking in the big mall on the opposite side of Sukhumvit – but the traffic is pretty heavy at this time of day.

  5. Savior says:

    Starting Monday 4 June ? Barring the misprinting of my calendar or turbulence in my visual perception, it would seem it was meant Monday 6 June…or is it Saturday 4 June ? Kindly confirm.

  6. Bens says:

    Very good news. I am looking forward to get to know you. I would like to emphasise what Savior said, though: Will it be Monday, 6 or Saturday, 4?

  7. Cittasamvaro says:

    Thanks for pointing out the error. Will be from Monday June 6th (I was looking at July by mistake).

  8. Deb says:

    Meditation on Monday 1 August is at which location?

  10. Cittasamvaro says:

    At the location on the map above, namely, Asoke Junction, on the corner of Sukhumvit 18.
    On Monday 8th August, we move location to Sukhumvit 24 for this year’s dhamma talk series.
