Taming the Monkey Mind: A meditation weekend with Bhante Akalito

When our mind is untrained, our thoughts jump from one thing to the next, never stopping for a moment of peace. Meditation helps train the mind by identifying unhelpful thoughts and habits that cause us suffering.

Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th May 2022
Bookings now open
For new and experienced meditators
