Panyaden teachers, staff from Mae Sai Hospital and other invited guests spent 4 days under the wise and kind guidance of Venerable Ajahn Jiew at Wat Pa Yen Boon in Chiang Rai. The retreat participants followed a daily routine that included morning and evening chanting, accompanying Ajahn Jiew on his daily alms round, daily chores, walking and sitting meditation, yoga and Dhamma talk and Q&A. Teachers have been reflecting on the wide benefits they got from the retreat and how they can apply these in the classroom. We are very grateful to Venerable Jiew for such a profound and enriching experience.

Teacher Retreat at Wat Pah Yen Boon

Panyaden teacher meditation retreat in Chiang Mai

Panyaden teachers spent 4 days at Wat Pah Yen Boon temple near Chiang Rai, practising meditation under the kind guidance of Venerable Ajahn Jiew. The days began with a wake-up bell at 4am, followed by chanting and meditation. Teachers then joined Venerable Jiew on his daily alms round where they could get direct experience of the generosity of local villagers. The day continued with walking and sitting meditation, Q&A, yoga, evening chanting and a dhamma talk.
