What is the Meditation Clinic?
The Meditation Clinic is a possibility that we would like to offer to anyone willing to consult with and get advice from Buddhist monks from Thailand. They are teachers who have been leading meditation and mindfulness for self-development, personal growth and empowerment around the world for more than ten years. Regarded as a “life changing” and “turning point” experience by many, we are glad to offer this enriching opportunity, open to anybody who feels curious about it. During the Meditation Clinic, you can spend some quality time with easy going and wise Buddhist monks, while speaking about any personal or life-related topic.
You can discuss a vast range of questions with the monk:
Who can come?

Who are the monks?
Venerable John Paramai Dhanissaro
Venerable John Paramai Dhanissaro (Supadulchai), referred to as “Luang Phi John”, was born in Bangkok and received both his Bachelor and Master degrees in Computer Engineering from Chulalongkorn University and Asian Institute of Technology. In 2003 he then furthered his studies and completed his PhD in Telematics in Norway. During his PhD study, he became greatly inspired and developed much interest in meditation. In 2008 Luang Phi John decided to ordain as a Theravada Buddhist monk and was subsequently invited to join Peace Revolution as a meditation instructor.
Venerable Pasura Dantamano
Venerable Pasura Dantamano was born in Thailand and has over 25 years of meditation experience. He received a Master’s degree in International Relations and has conducted meditation workshops and retreats in countries all over the world.
Phra Pasura Dantamano acts as the head teaching monk, lead advisor, and curriculum developer of the Peace Revolution Project. He constantly travels throughout North America, South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia to lead retreats, trainings, workshops, and presentations.
He is also responsible for organizing, advising, location-scouting, hospitality management, & conducting various religious ceremonies and trainings – e.g. Novice Ordination Programs, ‘V-Star’ Youth Morality Development, ‘World Peace Ethics Contest’, Vesak Floating Lantern Ceremony – in various countries throughout Asia, Africa, & Europe.
Throughout the calendar year, Phra Pasura Dantamano aids the WBSY with organization / coordination in event planning, development, networking, peace building and meditation teaching, as well as advising for its many functions and youth outreach projects.
The monk doesn’t charge for his teachings and neither makes a profit. All the money paid for Meditation Clinic will go to cover expenses incurred from having a Buddhist teaching monk flying from Thailand to Albania and his stay here.

The monks have been able to make me be someone that no one could. No doctor or psychologist could make me be. They have made me realize the good things I have that I did not know I had. They have made me happy, something that I cannot buy or get from anywhere else. And the best part of it, is like I did not know I had the power to make myself happy and they made me see that in me and I am really grateful for that.

The monks are really bright. I think they know what is going on with me. They have knowledge and experience. They are the pure ones.

To be able to be with the monks, to ask them whatever I want is such an unique opportunity.

Much of the things we learned from the monks are big knowledge about life and we can apply all the knowledge to all the cultures and all the people in the world.
