Bhikkhu Pesala set up the Association with the help of Christine Fitzmaurice and David Glendinning in 1995 to support those who want to practise insight meditation seriously.
He first practised intensive meditation at a retreat conducted by Mr John Coleman in 1975, and ever since has dedicated his life to Dhamma practice.
After his ordination in 1979 under Venerable Mahāsi Sayādaw, he adopted the Sayādaw’s method of watching the abdominal movements, and slow, mindful walking. He teaches meditation wherever and whenever he is invited.
