Following on from the very pleasant event at the beautiful Ariyasom Villa, Ajahn Wimoak will lead another workshop in a similar style. The schedule is given as below, but as is often the way, things get adjusted on the day according to how things unfold. What stays the same is the starting time, and the lunch.
