Australian mining engineer Bryan Tepper describes his recent experiences of a 1-week mind training program at the Thanyapua Mind Centre.
Bryan works 12-hour shifts underground in a gold mine in Australia – a difficult and often stressful occupation. Among his symptoms of overwork were sleep apnea, and often debilitating condition that responded positively to mind training at Thanyapura Phuket.
Long term, I think this is going to be extremely beneficial for me going forward in life. It’s pointing me in the right directio: I think it’s magic I seriously do… I will take away what I can and I know I will be a better person and better direction.

About the Author
Pierre Gagnon practised concentration and insight meditation intensively from 2010 to 2012, then went on to study meditation at Wat Suan Mokkh with the venerable Ajahn Po from 2013 to 2015. As well as his own practice, he has coordinated meditation retreats in the south of Thailand which were attended by more than 1,000 people.
Having a great passion in the field of neuroscience, he likes to integrate these concepts into meditation practice. He believes that much of our life is lived resisting and defending against internal and external experiences that people perceive as threats. Through the development of concentration and meditation, we can insightfully see that all experiences are harmless and there is no need to defend of contract around them. Pierre has experience coordinating concentration and insight meditation retreats, teaching the relationship that exists between Buddhism and neuroscience.
