Phra Ak’s Final Meditation Class, for the time being

Phra Ak held his last meditation class for local people, for the time being, on Wednesday evening, 10th January, before returning to Thailand

Meditation class participants would like to thank Phra Ak for all his time, energy and enthusiasm teaching meditation at the temple during the past six months

He plans to apply for a new visa and return around April 2018 and we look forward to having him back at the temple again

In the meantime, we welcome Phra Seri back into the Meditation Class teaching role


Farewell to the monks as they return to Thailand

Farewell to Phra Ak, Phra Liu, Phra Chin and Phra Boom (pictured L to R as they go on alms round in a rainy Manchester city centre) who all left the temple on 11th January to return to Thailand when their UK visas expired

They will be missed at the temple and we wish them all well for the future

Phra Ak and Phra Liu will be returning in three months or so time when they obtain new visas
