This month Thai monk Ajahn Wimoak will lead his usual monthly workshop in English/Thai on Sunday 29th Nov.
Interested foreigners are welcome to attend – the day is kind of ‘Thai style’, which means a little ‘fluid’ in schedule. There will be a dhamma talk in the morning session, and some walking meditation and meditation interviews by visiting lay practitioners for those who want it. The day is officially in English, but depending on the participants there will be periods of Thai language teaching also.
The program, including lunch, is kindly provided free of charge by Ariyasom Bangkok Boutique Hotel.
Ajahn Wimoak is a Thai monk, currently finishing a PhD in Buddhsim in English. He is also an accomplished meditator and has good English. He is able to put dhamma into accessible words based on direct experience, which is in contrast to the formulaic approach of most Thai monks.
Note: the schedule is rarely adhered to, except for check in and lunch which is at the correct time.
