meditation in the forest

Please feel free to stay for all or any part of the programs. We understand that you may have other commitments or preferences, so we will not be offended if you leave early or skip some sessions. We hope you will find something that interests you and benefits you. Thank you for your participation and support!


As requested by the community, Ajahn Chichung has agreed to lead the weekly guided meditation sessions on Sundays. This is a great opportunity for our community to practice mindfulness and compassion together, and to benefit from Ajahn’s wisdom and experience. Unless there is a special occasion or a schedule conflict, you can expect to see Ajahn every Sunday from 10 am to about 2 p.m. Please join us for this wonderful gift of Dhamma.

If you are sensitive to insect bites or tend to attract mosquitoes, you may want to take some precautions before joining the forest meditation session in the evening. You can either sit inside a mosquito tent or apply some insect repellent on your skin. This will help you avoid any discomfort or distraction during the meditation.

The programs are as follow:

10:00 a.m.Morning Chanting
10:30 a.m.Food offering to Ajahn; potluck lunch.
ถวายอาหารแด่พระสงฆ์ ร่วมกันรับประทานอาหาร
Free time เวลาว่างพักกลางวัน
12:10 p.m.Meditation inside the building.

12:40 p.m.SFM Board Meeting. You are welcome to sit in on the meeting if you are interested in learning about the activities and the development plan at SFM. Or if you prefer, you can go to the forest and meditate there on your own. The forest will be open to anyone who wish to practice meditation during this time period.
ประชุมคณะกรรมการ เรียนผู้สนใจเข้าร่วมประชุมเพื่อติดตามสถานการณ์ ความเคลื่อนไหว และกิจกรรมต่างๆ ของวัดป่าซาราโซต้าได้ค่ะ หรือท่านใดที่ต้องการเข้าไปนั่งสมาธิในป่าตามลำพังอย่างที่เคยทำตอนบ่ายวันอาทิตย์ ก็เชิญเลยค่ะ
