August 9 – Day of Mindfulness with Ven. Khemako

The Theravada Buddhist Community would like to invite you to a Day of Mindfulness on Sunday, August 9, 2020 with Venerable Khemako. 

Venerable Khemako was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1959 into a large Catholic family and received his education from priests and nuns at the local Church-run schools. His long-standing interest in the core questions of philosophy and religion led him to begin lay Buddhist practice in 1997. Eventually he abandoned a career in Silicon Valley and found his way into the order of monks, ordaining as a Bhikkhu on June 2, 2012 with Ajahn Pasanno as preceptor, at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery in California. In June of 2014 Ven. Khemako moved to Tisarana.

Day of Mindfulness With Ajahn Viradhammo – Sunday, July 12, 2020

The Theravada Buddhist Community would like to invite you to a Day of Mindfulness on Sunday, July 12, 2020 with Ajahn Viradhammo. 

Ajahn Viradhammo is the founder and abbot of Tisarana Buddhist Monastery in Perth, Ontario. He took bhikkhu (monastic) ordination in Thailand in 1974 at Wat Pah Pong with Ajahn Chah. He was one of the first residents at Wat Pah Nanachat, the international monastery in north-east Thailand. In 1977, he was asked by Ajahn Chah to join Ajahn Sumedho at the Hampstead Vihara in London. Later, he was involved in the establishment of both the Chithurst and Harnham monasteries in the UK. In 1985, he moved to New Zealand, where he lived for 10 years, setting up Bodhinyanarama monastery. In 1995, he went to the UK to assist Ajahn Sumedho at Amaravati and stayed for four years before returning to New Zealand, where he lived until 2002. He then returned to Ottawa where he cared for his mother for nine years. He is now a full time resident at Tisarana Buddhist Monastery.
