Jack Kornfield trained as a Buddhist monk in the monasteries of Thailand, India and Burma under Buddhist masters Venerable Ajahn Chah and Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw. He has taught meditation internationally since 1974 and is one of the key teachers to introduce Buddhist mindfulness practice to the West. Over the years, Jack who holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, has taught in centres and universities worldwide, led International Buddhist Teacher meetings, and worked with many of the great teachers of our time. His books have been translated into 20 languages and sold more than a million copies.

Venerable Ajahn Chah's impeccable approach to meditation, or Dhamma practice, and his simple, direct style of teaching, with the emphasis on practical application and a balanced attitude, attracted a large following of monks and laypeople. The teachings of Ajahn Chah continued to guide and inspire countless practitioners even to this day.

Venerable Ajahn Chah was an eminent and greatly respected meditation master, and the teacher of well-known monastics, including Venerables Ajahn Sumedho and Ajahn Brahm. In 1976, Venerable Ajahn Chah was invited to England together with Ajahn Sumedho, which led to the establishment of the first branch monastery of Wat Pa Pong outside of Thailand. Since then, further branch monasteries have been established in England, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and Italy.
