CALM is Wishing you a Very Happy and Peaceful Vesak Day! As we commemorate the Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana (passing away) of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha, CALM celebrates its one year anniversary on May 26, 2021
To attend CALM or learn more, please visit CALMmindfulness.org

CALM would like to extend our deepest love and gratitude to the CALM community for making our first-year journey possible. And now, as we embark on our second year, we would kindly like to request your continuous support for the flourishing of CALM’s activity. Without YOUR support – our dear CALM community – nothing is possible.

On this most sacred day of Vesak, we would like to pray for the good health and wellbeing of all beings…

May all sentient beings have happiness and its causes.

May all sentient beings be free of suffering and its causes.

May all sentient beings not be separated from sorrowless bliss.

May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free of bias, attachment, and anger.

With our kind wishes,
Kumanga and the CALM Training Faculty Members

Dr. Kumanga Andrahennadi PhD
Water Peace Project Advisor – Dr. Andrahennadi is  the Course Director of the Advanced Mindfulness-Based Practices (AMBP) International Teacher Training Program. As a Mindfulness Researcher, Educator and Trainer with over 20 years of experience in the West (U.K.) and in Sri Lanka, Dr. Andrahennadi founded the organization CALM: Centre for Advanced Learning of Mindfulness in the U.K. Under CALM, she continues to deliver specialist mindfulness-based program for children, young people and adults within the public, private and government sectors in the U.K. and internationally.

Dr. Andrahennadi is also the founder of Mindfulness-Based Design Practice (MBDP), a novel learning framework incorporating methods of Mindfulness, Water and Bohmian Dialogue in support of 21st Century Education. The MBDP framework was developed through her Ph.D. research at the University of Dundee, Scotland, U.K., and is the first contemplative framework in the world that has been developed specifically for the field of Design Education. Dr. Andrahennadi’s Ph.D. research, grounded on the ‘deep path’ (Buddhist philosophical framework) of mindfulness, has been supported and guided by the Internationally Acclaimed Buddhist Masters; H.H. the 17th Karmapa, H.E. Mingyur Rinpoche and Prof. Ringu Tulku Rinpoche.

Dr. Andrahennadi has also completed the Teacher Training Retreats for Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, University of Oxford, U.K., Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at the University of Bangor, U.K. and Mindfulness-Based Education Programme under Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh at the Plum Village in France.

Thus, originally from the Buddhist country of Sri Lanka, Kumanga has been able to deeply experience the value systems of both the ‘deep path’ (Buddhist framework of mindfulness) as well as the ‘wide path’ (Western scientific framework of mindfulness) through her life long experience as a Buddhist practitioner, and a Mindfulness Researcher/Educator in the U.K. and in Sri Lanka. As a Consultant/Senior Lecturer within the Pali and Buddhist Studies Department at the University of Sri Jayewardhanapura, Sri Lanka and as the Chairman of Bodhicharya Sri Lanka, Kumanga continues to work internationally to help promote the message of how developing inner peace can inspire peace within families, communities and nations.
