Venerable Ajahn Karuniko
Ven. Ajahn Karuniko (Christopher John Woodfine) was born in 1953 near Manchester, England. He graduated from Sheffield University in 1975 with an honours degree in electronics engineering. After graduation, he worked as an engineer in North London. His first contact with Buddhism was from reading a book in 1976, which made a deep impression on him. Two years later, he had the good fortune to meet Ven Ajahn Sumedho who had recently taken up residence in Hampstead Vihara, North London. He then became an anagarika (novice) in 1982 under the guidance of Ven Ajahn Sumedho at Cittaviveka Chithurst Buddhist Monastery, England. In July 1984, he took the monk’s (bhikkhu) ordination with Ven Ajahn Sumedho. Tan Ajahn Karuniko had spent most of his monastic life helping to establish monasteries in England and New Zealand. At present, he is the Abbot at Cittaviveka Chithurst Monastery.

Venerable Ajahn Jayanto
Born in Boston in 1967, Tan Ajahn Jayanto grew up in Newton and attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison, during which time a period of world travel kindled a great interest in the spiritual life. A meditation class at the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center led him to live for a while at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, where he made plans to join the monastic community of Luang Por Sumedho as a postulant at Amaravati Monastery in England in 1989. Taking bhikkhu (monk) ordination at the related Cittaviveka Monastery in 1991, he trained there and at Aruna Ratanagiri Monastery until 1997, at which point he embarked on a period of practice in Thailand and other Asian Buddhist countries.
He returned to the UK in 2006, where he lived at Amaravati until moving to Temple in 2014. Since 2009 Tan Ajahn Jayanto has helped to lead the efforts to establish a branch monastery in New England, and he now serves as abbot of Temple Forest Monastery.
We wish to advise that registration for this retreat is closed. Successful applicants will be notified in due course via email.
