About Amaranatho

Amaranatho has been a Buddhist monk for eleven years and trained at Amaravati Monastery near Hemel Hempstead. He leads residential family, young people and creative retreats for adults at the retreat center at Amaravati (www.family.amaravati.org), in Ireland and Malaysia. These events are based on co-exploration, creativity, fun and a willingness to honestly look at oneself. The main emphasis is on a contemplative or reflective attitude towards understanding who we are. This is based on accepting or welcoming the way life is and allowing our natural wisdom to arise. He recently started to run Jewish Buddhist meditation retreats in London. Amaranatho has recently trained to be a Source Process breathwork therapist, which uses the breath for healing any life limiting decisions we made when we took our first breath. Part of this training is understanding the birthing process, which for some couples can be a very spiritual experience, when done in a conscious way (www.sourcebreath.com and http://www.fatherstobe.org/). He is also deeply influenced by Ken Wilber's integral approach and shadow work. He has edited two books of Ajahn Sumedho, the Abbot of Amaravati, one called Intuitive Awareness which is available for free distribution and has been translated into several languages, and another called The Sound of Silence available from Wisdom Publications.
