John Peacock and Akincano Marc Weber
John Peacock is a unique mindfulness teacher who shares his insight into meditation and the wisdom that we cultivate through meditation. John has meditated for over 40 years and has taught for 30 years. He teaches on the Mindfulness Masters at Oxford University and is a renowned scholar of early Buddhists texts; he has been influential in connecting the origins of mindfulness with a new modern, secular, western psychological approach. John is a very accessible teacher, who encourages questions.
John Peacock was initially trained in the Tibetan Gelugpa tradition in India and subsequently spent time in Sri Lanka studying Theravada Buddhism. He lectured in Buddhist Studies at the University of Bristol, and at present is Associate Director of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre and teaches on the Master of Studies programme in MBCT (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy) at Oxford University; he is also a Visiting Teacher at the Centre for Mindfulness Research & Practice, Bangor University.
Akincano Marc Weber was born in Berne (Switzerland) and is a Buddhist teacher and contemplative psychotherapist. He learned to sit still in the early eighties as a Zen practitioner and later became a monk in Ajahn Chah’s tradition where he studied and practiced for 20 years in the Forest monasteries of Thailand and Europe.
He studies Pali and early Buddhist scriptures, holds a degree in Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy and runs Atammaya Cologne, a small Buddhist centre in the Rhineland. Besides his therapeutic work in Cologne he teaches Buddhist Psychology and meditation internationally in Dharma contexts and applied mindfulness in healthcare settings. Together with three fellow teachers his latest project is Bodhi College. Akincano lives with his wife in Cologne.
“Teaching is essentially translation. This means ferrying an authentic contemplative tradition across choppy waters into our psychological and cultural realities—without loosing the Teaching's vision nor the validity of our own immediate and embodied experience.”
