How to meditate (Bangkok)
by Yong Peng (ypong001(a)yahoo.com) [AUS:IP logged]

Jeff Oliver, former Buddhist monk now leading a dhamma centre in Turkey, will lead a dhamma talk on the topic ‘how to meditate’. He will detail the method of vipassana practise, how to train the mind in useful exercises and gain insight into the reality of meditation. This talk will lead into the one day meditation workshop that he will host on the following Saturday (spaces limited to 25).

Dhamma is one thing - and we have been looking at some of the teachings over the last year. Meditation goes in the opposite direction though- into the silence of the mind and away from theorising. So we have arranged this time with Ajahn Jeff in the short space he is available in Bangkok, so we can share in his experience in meditating and teaching. He is a follower of the world respected Burmese monk U Janaka, and was formerly a monk himself for a number of years before disrobing to head the new centre in Turkey.
