Meditation in the Forest with Bhante Punna

A meditation workshop inside the Forest of Everywhere led by Bhante Punna.

Join Bhante Punna for an intimate and inspiring meditation workshop nestled inside the enchanted immersive landscape from our latest adventure, The Forest of Everywhere. Both newcomers and long-term practitioners can benefit from this engaged discussion and practice. Bhante will answer all your questions about starting or maintaining a meditation practice, expectations or worries you may have about meditation, different styles and schools of meditation, techniques, and postures, and how meditation relates to other spiritual practices.

Enjoy complimentary hot tea and the chance to explore the set of the Forest of Everywhere at the conclusion of the workshop. Chairs will be provided but you can bring your favorite cushion if you prefer to meditate on the floor.
