Ajahn Jutindharo Awareness Through Meditation and Movement

Evening 5 -7 July 2019

A Weekend of sitting and moving meditations, exploring how we can cultivate awareness in both stillness and movement.


The Retreat

Ajahn Jutindharo has practised and taught meditation for many years, grounded in the Buddha’s teaching of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, with a particular emphasis on body awareness.

In recent years he has explored approaches to mindful movement: Amerta movement, focusing on the body in movement in the environment, and Move into Life, the art of being in movement. Both approaches, as with some others, can help to lessen unskilful habits and patterns, and hence the sense of identification.

Ajahn Jutindharo

Ajahn Jutindharo grew up in Leeds.  At university he became interested in meditation and Buddhism, which culminated in a decision to join a Buddhist monastic order in 1987.  His monastic life has been spent primarily in Britain, with short periods in Asia.

Since 2007 he has been the senior incumbent at the Hartridge Monastery in Devon. For several years has been studying movement with Sandra Reeve (Move into Life) and Suprapto Suryodarmo (Amerta Movement) and Cherionna Menzam-Sills (Continuum). He regularly teaches meditation retreats.
