Sister Ajahn Candasiri, who has been a nun within the forest tradition of Theravada Buddhism since 1979, has spent most of her monastic life at either Chithurst (Cittaviveka) Monastery or Amaravati Buddhist Monastery. She has led meditation retreats in the U.K. and abroad for several decades, and has been intimately involved with establishing the community and training for nuns (siladhara) of her tradition. Having practised within different religious traditions prior to meeting Ajahn Sumedho, her Buddhist teacher, her interest is in what is shared among people of faith, rather than what divides. Currently she is establishing a small hermitage for nuns of her tradition near Comrie in rural Perthshire.
Cost: £50/£40 (Concessions)/£20 (Students).
