About the topic:
Almost everyone has tried meditation, and almost everyone has had to deal with a ‘monkey mind’ that doesn’t stop still. Meditation retreat teacher Jeff. Oliver will deal with this topic in detail over 2 evenings.
Tue. 21st Nov.Monkey Mind – How do you treat your monkey and what do you feed it? There are many ways to get the most out of your monkey!
Weds 22nd Nov.Let’s liberate our Monkeys! What if the monkey dies or is absent, what’s left? Can the monkey be replaced, transformed or reborn? What do you really want?
We’ve hosted Jeff in Bangkok many times – he is always a reliably public speaker – both entertaining and inspirational. He was formerly a monk for 9 years in Myanmar under the well known meditation master Sayadaw U Janaka. He’s written several books, and currently lives as a full time dharma teacher (when he’s not surfing in his home country Australia) leading retreats and giving talks in Turkey, Bali, Malaysia, Bangkok, and other places.
Jeff’s style is highly pragmatic, rather than scholarly. He teaches mediation and dharma from his own 20+ year experience as a monk, meditator, and dharma speaker.
Both sessions will be in our little Bangkok Meditation centre. Feel free to come earlier from 6:30pm (ish) if you’d like to meet a few of the regulars or catch Jeff before the start of the event.
The centre is 4 minutes walk from Ekkamai BTS station, Bangkok, Thailand. (If the front door is locked, the housekeepers number is on the door – call and she’ll open up for you.)
