Ayya Anandabodhi | Daylong Retreat “Settling Into Body and Breath” (9:30 am – 4:30 pm, PT, USA)

At this time of great challenge in the world, we can easily get overwhelmed and confused. Through settling into our body and ever-changing breath, we can find a place of peace and centeredness within, from which to open to the truth of our interconnection with all living beings. I welcome you to be part of a field of practice that supports rediscovery of our individual groundedness and love, simultaneously connecting us with all living beings. Organized by Marin Sangha Insight Meditation.
Ayya Anandabodhi was born and raised in Wales, UK. Ayya first encountered the Buddha’s teaching in her early teens while reading about the Four Noble Truths. This was life-changing and from that moment she experienced a deep confidence in the Buddha’s insight and a wish to understand his teachings more deeply. At the age of 24, she began monastic training at Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in England under the guidance of Ajahn Sumedho. Seventeen years later she moved to the USA with a wish to create more opportunities for women monastics. In 2011 she took full Bhikkhuni Ordination, joining the worldwide revival of the Theravada Bhikkhuni Order. Ayya Anandabodhi loves to share the Dhamma. Her practice is guided by early Buddhist scriptures, living in community, and through nature’s pure and immediate Dhamma. Ayya currently resides in Washington State.
