August 27, 2023 – Half Day of Mindfulness with Phra Ajahn Pavaro

The Theravada Buddhist Community would like to invite you to a Half Day of Mindfulness with Ajahn Pavaro on Sunday, August 27, 2023. The retreat will be available online using the Zoom platform.

Ajahn Pavaro

Ajahn Pavaro early formative monastic training began in 2001 with Ajahn Sona at Sitavana Forest Monastery in British Columbia. He spent his seventh year as a Bhikkhu with his preceptor, Luang Por Pasanno, and the Sangha at Abhayagiri Monastery. In 2010 he moved to Thailand and spent close to 10 years with Ajahn Achalo at Anandagiri Monastery in Petchabun. He benefited 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 Liem and Tan Ajahn Anan. In June 2020 Ajahn Pavaro was welcomed to Tisarana, where he now resides.
