The Compassionate Breath: A Monastic Daylong Retreat in Winthrop with Tan Nisabho
Join Tan Nisabho for a day of meditation and teachings on Sunday, June 12th, from 9-5 pm at Methow Valley Wellness Center in Winthrop, WA. To cultivate a peaceful mind, practitioners must learn to use meditation to anchor themselves in the breath and cultivate compassion. The Buddha’s teachings provide a variety of skillful means to grow in this skill; the art of peace.

After finishing college in 2012, “Tahn” Nisabho left his native Washington to go forth as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. He received full ordination the following spring under Ajahn Anan, a senior disciple of renowned meditation master, Ajahn Chah, and spent the following years training in forest monasteries throughout Thailand, Australia, and the US. While staying with some of the lineage’s most respected teachers, he grew to believe the Thai Forest Tradition’s balance of communal life with solitary forest dwelling, careful adherence to the monastic precepts, and focus on meditation represented a faithful embodiment of the original Buddhist path. Moreover, his time with contemporary masters such as Ajahn Anan, Ajahn Pasanno, and Ajahn Jayasaro, convinced him that such a path could yield great fruit in the heart even amidst the complexities of modern life.
In 2020, after nearly eight years in robes, Tahn Nisabho returned to the Northwest hoping to help establish a refuge of Dhamma and practice near Seattle.
