Mahesi Caplan initially trained as a photographer and then ordained in the Buddhist Forest tradition of Ajahn Chah at the age of 22.
His Buddhist training was all in European monasteries and his interest in synthesizing western and eastern influences is ongoing. He disrobed after 15 years and has continued teaching contemplative practices to small groups in Totnes Devon.
Inspired by life, monastic training in the Theravada Forest Tradition and inspirational teachers he shares what he can with the intention of exploring ways to practically engage & accelerate the process of cultivating unconditional contentment.

Ajahn Chah (17 June 1918 — 16 January 1992)
In 1977, Ajahn Chah was invited to visit Britain by the English Sangha Trust, a charity with the aim of establishing a locally-resident Buddhist Sangha. He took Venerable Sumedho and Venerable Khemadhammo along, and seeing the serious interest there, left them in London at the Hampstead Vihara (with two of his other Western disciples who were then visiting Europe). He returned to Britain in 1979, at which time the monks were leaving London to begin Chithurst Buddhist Monastery in Sussex.
