Ven Canda began meditating in 1996 with SN Goenka. She ordained as a¬†Buddhist nun in Burma in 2006 and subsequently took full ‘bhikkhuni’ ordination with Ajahn Brahm. Her approach to meditation focuses on kindness and letting go as a means to deepening stillness and is increasingly informed by the Early Buddhist Suttas. In 2016, Ven Canda founded Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project with Ajahn Brahm – a UK charity aimed at establishing a nun’s monastery in the UK.
