From the 3rd November evening Education Officials from all the Provinces in Sri Lanka began to gather in Meepe for an exposure and experience into mindfulness. The Sati Pasala Meepe event was unique, in that it drew a large number of officials from the Northern, Eastern, Uva, Sabaragamuwa, North Central, Western, Southern, Wayamba and Central Provinces, into residential accommodation and a two day exciting mindfulness camp. Creatively designed by Sati Pasala team member Somabandhu Kodikara and ably conducted by Sati Pasala Facilitators, in Sinhala and Tamil, the event was most interesting. Venerable Dhammajiva conducted and guided mindful sitting and mindful walking sessions. And it was even more unique to have several members of the Sati Pasala Bhikkhu Facilitators join the group on the second day.
The feedback received from the participants was exceptionally useful and encouraging, since it showed how well the concept of mindfulness had been grasped by them. The event was kept alive by the animated and energetic translation of the entire proceedings by Mr Muthu Sivagnanam, the newest recruit into the Sati Pasala family.
