  • Ajahn Sona will offer a Dhamma talk at 10:00 am and answer questions afterwards.  Here is a recent Dhamma Talk from Ajahn Sona's YouTube Channel)
  • After the casual pot-luck meal at 11:00 am, Ajahn Sona will be available to chat about Buddhist practice and "life in general."  Please bring a dish to share as well as your own dishes and cutlery.  


There is no charge.  In the time-honoured spirit of Buddhist monasticism, "dana" (donations freely offered) will be gratefully accepted. Cheques should be made to "Birken Forest Monastery".
