Teacher: Venerable Amaranatho
Venerable Amaranatho was born in England and brought up in the Jewish faith, but in his late teens had severe doubts about the faith and left all religion behind to work within the computer industry. After time spent travelling the world and learning about meditation, he took the decision to become a monk in 2000 and resided and trained at Amaravati Monastery near Hemel Hempstead for eleven years. He now lives as a alms mendicant
Ven Amaranatho has also trained in Source Process Breathwork, where the breath is used for healing life-limiting decisions made since we took our first inhalation (http://binnieadansby.com/ and http://www.fatherstobe.org/). He is also deeply influenced by Ken Wilber's integral approach and shadow work.His teachings are based on accepting and welcoming the way life is and allowing our natural wisdom to arise.
