Birgit Saunders – Resident Teacher, Amitabha Centre
Phunwang has studied at Amitabha Centre for many years and ordained in 2014. He is sincere and kind, and has a deep understanding of dharma which he puts into practice in all aspects of his life. Phunwang is our Education Programme Co-ordinator and also takes care of the monthly programme of special prayers and pujas at the centre, teaches Simply Meditate classes on Thursday lunchtimes, co-ordinates Prayers for World Peace on Sundays, as well as stepping in as teacher where and when he is needed.
Jan has been teaching the Levin class for some years now - albeit with a three-year break when she was working abroad. She loves the fact that dharma offers really practical ways of working towards becoming more peaceful and compassionate, no matter what our beliefs, background or current situation might be; and she appreciates and enjoys the chance to explore these ideas with the those who come to class.
