Santikaro has been a devoted student of Ajahn Buddhadasa Bhikkhu, a Thai Theravada master with whom he lived and trained, and translated for, at Suan Mokkh in Southern Thailand. Santikaro’s training continues here in the Midwest, where he is co-founder along with his wife Jo Marie of Kevala Retreat (formerly Liberation Park), a modern expression of Buddhist practice, study, and social responsibility, located in rural southwestern Wisconsin. He has been teaching in the Chicago area since his return "home" in 2000 and is actively teaching around the Midwest and further afield. Life's vicissitudes have given him some acquaintance with cancer, trauma, addictions, deforestation, joy, and other challenges that he explores regularly.
