Three Day

 Meditation Retreat

June 23 - 25, 2017

With

Ajahn Pavaro

What would our world look like if we all regularly took the time to reflect on our lives with gratitude?  Please consider joining us for this precious opportunity to practice with this Canadian born Theravadin Buddist Monastic who has been in the robes since 2002.  Under Ajahn Pavaro's gentle guideance we will be exploring a journey into contentment .

Ajahn Pavaro's encounter with the Buddhist path began in 1980 under the guidance of Anagarika Dhamma Dinna. For many years he combined retreat-going with the formal study of Buddhism and a busy family life. During this time, he also meditated with such teachers as Ven. Piyadassi Mahathera, Ven. Madewela Punnaji, and Ayya Khema.

Shortly after his journey to the Buddhist holy sites in India with another of his teachers, Ajahn Sobin Namto, in 2001 Ajahn Pavaro left a university career to devote himself to monastic training under Ajahn Sona at Birken Forest Monastery near Kamloops BC. With Ajahn Sona's blessing, Pavaro then spent a year with his preceptor, Luang Por Pasanno, and the community at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery in northern California.

Ajahn Pavaro has spent the last 6 years in Thailand, beginning with periods Wat Pah Nanachat and the remote hermitage of Dtao Dtum. He has lived for the past 5 years at Anandgagiri (abbot: Ajahn Achalo) in Petchabun Province.
