Daylong Dhamma Retreat with Ajahn Jamnian — Pomona, CA

Southern California  

June 10, 2013

Free  daylong Dhamma talk with Ajahn Jamnian (also known as Ajahn Jumnien), a living Buddhist master in the Thai Forest Tradition.

Ajahn Jamnian is coming from Thailand, along with a small number of other monastics. He will be giving a free daylong Dhamma talk fon Monday, June 10, 2013, in Pomona, CA, near Los Angeles.

Ajahn Jamnian teaches in a unique style filled with joy, humor, and lightness of heart. Ajahn Jamnian encourages us to continuously explore the presence of desire and aversion in the mind. He tells us every situation is an opportunity to practice “steering ourselves back to the Middle Path.”
Meditation and mindfulness are often thought of as something we set aside time to do outside of our normal busy routines. However, the peace and calmness experienced during and soon after meditation practice often is overcome by life’s experiences: an angry boss, a traffic jam, or a disagreement.

A living meditation practice, in which the development of insight pervades every aspect of our life and not just the hours devoted to meditation, is a “life long process of constant observation and continuous investigation.”

Please note, this is not a silent retreat.  In order to emphasize the practice of Vipassana (or mindfulness practice) in everyday life, Ajahn Jamnian prefers to lead non-silent retreats. This helps to bring insight, wisdom, joy, and peace into our everyday experience, as well as build a dynamic sangha community.
