CLASSES

This group is a guided meditation evening with Chris. Typically we practice relaxation techniques, calming and insight meditation, along with heart abiding practices and qi gong. Basic buddhist philosophy and practice is covered. 

Our 'Sangha' or 'community of meditation practitioners' are a friendly bunch and our centre is a good place to cultivate positive friendships and receive constructive support. Through your efforts, and with this support, you can start to heal those areas of your life that are causing you suffering, leading to a more fulfilling, healthy and happy life.

Retreats & visits to our forest monasteries and retreat centres

We very much encourage our practitioners and friends to go and visit the other Thai Forest Buddhist Centres around the country. These places are well established and have been running as functioning monasteries and retreat centres for many years. They provide the perfect environment to take a break from the business and stresses of life and find some well-being and healing. You can gain much insight and peace through the practice of meditation, receiving compassionate spiritual support and top-notch guidance from these world renowned Ajahns (teachers).

All 4 centres are located in beautiful countryside where good fresh air and great walks can be experienced also.

These places are always beneficial and a delight to visit!

Please visit their websites for further details and inspiration.
