Thursday 1st July
Popular and inspiring Australian meditation teacher Ajahn Jeff Oliver will be back in Bangkok briefly in July.
Jeff has given a number of talks for us over the last year or so, and his easy layman’s language has proved very accessible to all. Previously he practised both as a monk for 6 years, and as a layman under the tutelige of revered Burmese master U Janaka in the Mahasi Sayadaw lineage. More recently he has been practising with the Burmese master Sayadaw U Tejaniya. Currently he is teaching meditation at various locations around the globe – wherever people invite him, with a special focus on Turkey.
Topic of the talk is
Understanding the nature of Non-Self
at Bodhgaya Hall (Chit Lom BTS)
Thursday 1st July
6:30 (or earlier if you can make it) gather at the coffee shop
7-8:15 talk and Q&A
Bodhgaya Hall is in the offices of DMG – right next to the Chit Lom BTS Station (map below), level 22. – and very easy to get to. It is a very nice location, easy to get to and being high up it is cool and quiet. The Event is free of charge and there is no advance booking required. There is a nice coffee shop with great views over the city next to the meeting hall.
Bodhgaya Hall is in the offices of DMG Books, and is used regularly by a large Thai group of meditators. It is an excellent facility, and very convenient on the skytrain line, Chit Lom Station. The Thai group meets there every Tuesday and Wednesday.
The address is Amarin Plaza, Level 22, 496-502 Ploenchit Road, Lumpini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330
Get out at Chit Lom Skytrain Station, and take the short walk to Amarin Tower. From the ground floor, take the lift up to the 22nd floor. DMG is on the right hand side on the 22nd floor, and there is a nice coffee shop there, so you can arrive early for events and meet some of the regulars.
You cannot get up to the 22nd floor via the lift in the Amarin plaza itself. You must go to the lifts on the ground floor, to access the office block above the Amarin Plaza.
