October 24, 2021 – Day of Mindfulness with Ajahn Pavaro

The Theravada Buddhist Community would like to invite you to a Day of Mindfulness with Ajahn Pavaro on Sunday, October 24, 2021. The retreat will be available online using the Zoom platform.

Ajahn Pavaro

Ajahn Pavaro’s early formative monastic training began in 2001 with Ajahn Sona at Sitavana Forest Monastery in British Columbia. He spent his 7th year as a Bhikkhu with his preceptor, Luang Por Pasanno, and the Sangha at Abhayagiri Monastery in Pechabun. He benefitted from periods of practice at Wat Pah Nanachat and from opportunities to receive teachings from leading elders of the Wat Non Pah Pong Sangha, including Luang Por Liam and Tan Ajahn Anan. In June 2020, Ajahn Pavaro was welcomed to Tisarana, where he now resides.
