Accommodation will be shared, and 30 foreigners and about 30 Thais are expected to join. Weather is quite cool at night, so bring a blanket or two.

A couple of the days will (probably) be taught via translation by Ajahn Phet – abbot of Wat Prayong. He is a well known meditation master of the highest order despite his young age, and this will be a very good opportunity for all.

Phra acharn Phet is 37 years old and has been practicing in caves and forests (dutanga) for about 8 years, before he settled in nong chok and established Wat Prayong Gittivanaram there in 2006.

He is a very open-minded teacher and has studied and practiced several techniques himself and also teaches them up to what he considers is useful for the student to progress in dhamma. he never asks practictioners to change the technique they are used to – but encourage people to continue their practice and gives them instructions if they want or need them.
