Join Theravada Buddhist nun and teacher, Ajahn Sundara, and television presenter and psychotherapist, Alistair Appleton, as they reflect on their own personal experiences of Buddhist practice, philosophy and mindfulness, to coincide with the current Asahi Shimbun display in Room 3 of the Museum (Virtual pilgrimage: reimagining the Great Shrine of Amaravati).

Ajahn Sundara is an ordained nun and Buddhist teacher. She participated in the establishment of the nuns’ community at the Theravada Buddhist monastery of Amaravati in the Chiltern Hills (south-east England) where she is based. The monastery is inspired by the Thai Forest tradition. For the last twenty years she has taught and led meditation retreats across Europe and America.

Alistair Appleton is a television presenter and mindfulness teacher. He has been a practicing Buddhist for almost two decades, originally in the Thai Forest lineage, and more recently in the Vajrayana traditions of Tibet. Trained as a psychotherapist, in 2005 he established the Mindsprings project to explore the uses and benefits of meditation in the modern world.
