FOREST AWAKENINGS: GUIDED MEDITATION

1st, 3rd, and 5th Tuesdays, 6:30-7:45 PM

Pattago Bhikkhu (Monk Steve) guides sitting and walking meditation, and gives a short talk at the end.  An American monk, Pattago has studied Buddhism and practiced meditation for 20 years.  He ordained in 2017.

The meditation is appropriate for beginners and advanced meditators.  If you’re new, please come 15 minutes early.  Otherwise, please arrive on time so you don’t have to wait for the walking meditation to enter.


Meditation for lay people took off in Burma/Myanmar, then spread to Thailand, and in the 1970’s, came here to America.  Southeast Asia is at the heart of meditation.
