Mental Fitness With a Monk


When/ Where: 30th of May 2019, 6pm-8pm at St. Peter’s, North Main St. Cork

Have you always wanted to try meditation but didn’t know quite where to begin?

Join us for a 2-hour workshop and take the unique opportunity to meditate with a Thai Buddhist Monk.

The session will be led by Luang Phi John, who is coming to Ireland especially to host a series of these workshops. LP John holds a PhD in Telematics and used to work as a developer before ordaining as a Theravada Buddhist monk, so he’s familiar with the pressures of a dynamic and highly demanding work and lifestyle.

During the workshop, you will:

-learn techniques on how to calm your mind and reduce anxiety and stress

-become more mindful,

-increase your body/mind awareness and allow yourself to stay with your emotions 

Take the chance to finally learn and try meditation practice; absolute beginners are very welcome.

About Luang Phi John: Venerable John Paramai Dhanissaro (Supadulchai), referred to as “Luang Phi John”, was born in Bangkok and received both his Bachelor and Master degrees in Computer Engineering from Chulalongkorn University and Asian Institute of Technology. In 2003 he then furthered his studies and completed his PhD in Telematics in Norway. During his PhD study, he became greatly inspired and developed much interest in meditation. In 2008 Luang Phi John decided to ordain as a Theravada Buddhist monk at the Dhammakaya temple in Thailand, and was subsequently invited to join Peace Revolution as a meditation instructor.
