What is it exactly to be here and now in the present moment? with Gil Alon

What is time? Does it really exist? Can we be in the here and now all the time? How can we apply the idea of the present moment in our daily life? What does the current cutting edge science say about time? How is it connected to our spiritual quest?

Zen master Gil Alon will be leading our next Monday night meeting on 22 April 2024 from 06:30 – 8.00 PM Bangkok time at Baan Aree, the beautiful location so generously made available to us by the Baan Aree foundation.

Everyone is welcome, from beginners to experienced meditators. We meet to support and encourage each other in our practice.Baan Aree is a Thai Buddhist Center, please wear something that is comfortable to sit in, and avoid tight-fitting clothes, shorts, sleeveless tops, and short skirts. There may not be sufficient drinking water on site, therefore you may bring your own water in a closed container. No other food/drinks are allowed in the main room.

As is usual with Buddhist teachings, there is no charge for this event. However, the Little Bangkok Sangha follows the Buddhist custom of Dana (generosity). The teachings and the venue are offered as an act of generosity, and those receiving them can, if they wish, reciprocate by making donations. These go towards the teacher’s and venue’s costs. Boxes for Dana will be provided.
