Ajahn regaled us with his usual wit and humour, teaching us to relax our bodies beforehand so that we may then relax our minds. Ajahn used his stories and jokes to both relax us and move us to a more happy state of mind before leading us in a beginners meditation.
Following the meditation Ajahn again used wit and humour to keep us relaxed. As Ajahn has said to us many times “Stop looking into the past, reliving bad things that have happened, or imagining a future that may never happen, and live in the moment”.
