Non-Residential Retreat with Ajahn Sona

Sanghamitta's home (map)

We hope you can join us for this silent retreat with Ajahn Sona. The retreat will include Dhamma talks, group question and answer sessions, and opportunities for both walking and sitting meditation. This will be the last live retreat Ajahn Sona is offering - future retreats will be via Skype.

The retreat is restricted to 23 people during the day, but we can accommodate almost double that amount for the Friday evening public talk.

For more information and to register, please go to http://canmoretheravadabuddhism.ca/events/

Public Dhamma Talk: Ajahn Sona

Canmore Seniors' Centre (map)

Please join Ajahn Sona for a public talk at Canmore Seniors' Centre.

Ajahn Sona is abbot of Birken Forest Monastery in British Columbia. He is a first wave Western Theravada ordained practitioner. After several years of practicing as a lay hermit, he took full monastic ordination at the first Theravada monastery in the United States in 1989. He trained as well in the Thai Forest Tradition and combines both Sri Lankan and Thai scholastic and meditative practice traditions with modern western sensibilities. His pre-monastic education is in philosophy, humanities, and specifically classical Western music. These have been an aid in understanding the Western psyche and trying to establish paradigm bridges between East and West.
