Sun 30th, A. Wimoak WkShp

Sunday 30th August

Thai Monk Ajahn Wimoak will be leading his monthly one-day workshop in meditation based on the mindfulness of the body (Kayakatasati) on Sukhumvit Soi 1 at the Beautiful Boutique hotel Ariyasom Villa, in English.

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 very 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.

  • 8:30 – 9 am Registration
  • 9 – 10 Talk on Kayakatasati (mindfulness of body)
  • 10-11:15 refreshments and meditation
  • 11:30 Lunch
  • Afternoon session will (usually)  include short Dhamma talk, sitting and walking meditation, and one-to-one interviews.
  • Finish between 4 and 5 pm
  • This is Thailand, so expect the schedule to be somewhat, ahem…. , fluid.

Directions couldn’t be easier. Go down Sukhumvit Soi 1 straight to the very end, and you will see Ariyasom Villa on the left.

For Skytrain users, take the Ploen Chit Station.

  1. Dear Bhante,

    Kindly avoid statements like “This is Thailand, so expect the schedule to be somewhat, ahem…. , fluid.” Can you get over your ‘tanha’?

    Besides, it is the rigidity in people’s minds and their expectations that causes their suffering!

    Based on my several experiences with Phra Ajahn, you may write:

    “The morning session usually starts with meditation instructions on mindfulness with regard to the body (kāya-gatā-sati) delivered in a repetitive (and some say hypnotic) manner not different from that of the ancient suttas. Development of this subtle kind of awareness will be taught and applied during both sitting and walking meditation.

    The afternoon continues with more of the same instructions, and an extended quiet session with the monk is to follow. During this time, the assessment of the individual’s progress as well as further refinement of meditation techniques by experienced tutors and disciples (of Phra Ajahn Wimokkha) may be made available, and may be held in a separate room.

    A question and answer session may follow where inquiries pertaining to individual experiences and needs are addressed, such as special meditations to promote healing.

    Lunch is provided, and refreshments are available throughout the day. The schedule is flexible and one is free to join and leave as appropriate. Registration is from 8:30 – 9:00, and ends at approximately 4 to 5 in the afternoon.

    Instruction and food are provided free of charge, but donations are always welcome.
