Disclaimer: All views expressed by our Rains Retreat Guest Speakers are their own and do not necessarily reflect those of the BSWA.

Every year, the monastic community (Monks and nuns) go on a three month retreat called the “Rains Retreat” from mid July to mid October. During this period, they do not visit our centres for teachings as it’s a time for deepening their own practice.

While the monks and nuns are away, we will have some interesting guest speakers coming in to give the Friday Night talk.

Guest Speaker – Dr Brian Walker (Serpentine GP Holistic health)

Dr Brian Walker is a member of the Legislative Council in the Parliament of Western Australia for the Legalise Cannabis Party.

He has practised medicine for many years in many different countries, before finally settling into practice as a GP at Serpentine Medical Centre. He has front-line experience treating patients in hospitals, emergency departments, and general practice.

If you are familiar with the book Dying To Be Me, which detailed the near death experience by Anita Moorjani, it should be noted that Dr. Walker was Anita’s GP back in Hong Kong. She met up with him in the US 3 years ago and did a beautiful interview which is available on Youtube. Dr Walker talks about how to remain calm during times of political madness such as these.
