Mindfulness in the Time of Pandemic: Online Retreat from Birken Monastery

May 1-10, 2020: Everyone is Welcome

As we step gently into these shifting times, and find our footing amidst uncertainty, Birken Forest Buddhist Monastery and Pacific Hermitage will premiere our first web-based virtual meditation retreat, centered on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. Ajahn Sona, Ajahn Sudanto, and other resident monks will lead meditators around the world towards a deeper understanding and practice of Right Mindfulness in all areas of our lives.

  • The schedule will follow a typical retreat format; morning and evening chanting and meditation, group sittings, and Ajahn Sudanto’s teatime Q&A live-streamed.
  • Daily talks from Ajahn Sona will premiere on YouTube nightly after evening meditations.
  • All are welcome to participate in the virtual retreat. Participants can submit questions for the teatime Dhamma Q&A.
  • The retreat will be live-streamed through Ajahn Sona’s YouTube Channel.
