Emoyeni – Cultivating Wisdom & Compassion

Bhikku Sukhacitto

BHANTE SUKHACITTO is an Insight Dialogue teacher. He was born in Germany in 1963 and first came into contact with Buddhism in 1986 in Thailand when he attended a meditation retreat in Wat Suan Mokkh. He ordained there as a novice in 1989 and as a monk in 1990. He moved to the West in 1993 where he has lived at various monasteries of the Ajahn Chah tradition in Switzerland and UK. His first Insight Dialogue retreat was in 2005; he was amazed by the powerful experience of meditating together with other people. Since 2010 he has been teaching Insight Dialogue worldwide and was trained by Gregory Kramer and other teachers. In his experience, interpersonal meditation is an extremely helpful aid for the development of wisdom. It bridges the gap between traditional silent meditation and our everyday lives and relations with other people. For three years he ran a small Dhamma Centre, House of Noble Friendship, in his hometown.
