Welcome to the Official Website for Ajahn Jamnian Buddhist teachings and events for the United States.  

Ajahn Jamnian (also spelled Ajahn Jumnien, Ajahn Jumnian, or Ajahn Jumean) is a Theravada Thai Buddhist monk and Dhamma teacher in the Thai Forest Tradition. Ajahn Jamnian teaches in a unique style teaching drawing directly from the Suttas (the teachings of the Buddha) and giving practical examples from his personal experience. He  teaches with a spirit of joy, laughter, and lightness of heart by a Buddhist meditation master.

about Ajahn Jamnian …

Each year, Ajahn Jamnian visits the U.S. to teach the Dhamma and help students learn to practically apply the core teachings of the Buddha. There will be events in the Pacific Northwest, Sacramento/Nevada City, CA, and Southern California throughout the month of June 2015.

These are NOT silent retreats, but a practical teaching from Ajahn Jamnian. Taught through stories, and Dhamma talk, you will learn mindfulness practice and other practical Buddhist teachings that you apply continuously throughout your daily life.

2016 Fund Raising Drive – Please Donate!

We strive to keep the registration fees for the Ajahn Jamnian (Ajahn Jumnean) retreats low and reasonable. The retreat registration fees are heavily subsidized.  We estimated our cost to cover our expenses to be about $700/person for the Olympia retreat. For Mt.Baldy,  our costs are approximately $420/attendee.   The costs cover lodging, meals, and the monastics’ travel expenses.  We depend on generous donations to help offset some of the costs, provide scholarships, and to allow monastics to attend free of charge. We also plan on funding book projects and other educational materials that are distributed to the public free of charge. We are staffed completely by unpaid volunteers. If you would like to help us meet our goals please click on the donate button below. Mahasati Retreat Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit. Your generous donations are tax deductible.

Your donation by check saves us the credit card processing fee (2.2%). If you would like to send us a check, please mail it to:
