Session 3

19th April 2020

Radical Awareness Directing attention to the roots (yonsio manasikāra)

With Akincano Weber and Christoph Köck

An invitation to join Christoph and Akincano in unravelling one of key teachings of Early Buddhism: how to develop the faculty of directing attention to the roots. As seminal aspect of both appropriate understanding and the growth of wisdom, the skill of yonsio manasikāra plays a crucial role in developing ethics, calm, insight and empathetic resonance. The teachers will draw on both scriptural and oral traditions and share their personal understanding of the twin-virtues in “nurturing skill in tracing conditions” and “finding skillful means”.  


AkincanoAKINCANO M. WEBER is a Swiss Buddhist teacher and psychotherapist (MA). A former monk, he has lived and practised for 20 years in European and Thai Forest monasteries. Particular interests are early Buddhist texts, stillness and contemplative psychology. He is the guiding teacher of Atammaya Cologne, Germany, part of the CPP programme and of several Mindfulness teacher training courses, and teaches meditation and Buddhist Psychology in secular and traditional contexts in Europe and overseas. 


CHRISTOPH KÖCK was born in Vienna, Austria, and spent 17 years of his life as a Buddhist monk in the Theravadin tradition. He lived mainly in monasteries connected with Ajahn Chah in Thailand and the West. Currently he lives in Vienna, working as a psychotherapist in a private practice. He teaches Buddhism and meditation internationally, and is trained to teach MBSR and MBCT.
