Luang Por Pasanno, the most senior North American monastic in our tradition, spent this past year in seclusion, following the wise advice of the Buddha to take time away from community for retreat and reflection. The first six months of that time were spent in Thailand and the last six months were here at Birken Forest Buddhist Monastery.
A Community Day honouring LP Pasanno took place at Birken on June 16. On that afternoon LP Pasanno shared his thoughts and insights from his retreat; a podcast of his talk can be found at this site. It is also available at Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and eight other platforms.
