Acharn Helen Jandamit

(Formerly Rev. Saddharma)







Acharn Helen is an author, visual artist, editor, frequency healer and Vipassana Acharn. British born, she has lived in Thailand for almost 50 years bringing up her family and sharing her extensive experience and knowledge of traditional Buddhist Vipassana Meditation.

She was ordained with the Mook Rim Society (Korean Zen) for eleven years and now works as a spiritual independent running workshops and courses at The House of Dhamma. She worked with Mahachulalongkorn Buddhist University - MCU. and the Young Buddhists Association of Thailand – YBAT for many years. On invitation, she has travelled to run courses and retreats in Austria, Australia, the UK and the USA.


In 2002, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, Acharn Helen was honoured as the Foremost Western Woman Meditation Master in South-east Asia.


She did formal Vipassana teacher training with several highly-respected masters. Initially she studied and practised with Chao Khun Phra Thepsittimuni of Section 5 Wat Maha Dhatu, who is known as the Father of Vipassana Meditation in Thailand.

She also attended retreats with Ven. Phra Khru Palad Khao Dittawanno (also known as Ven. Phra Khru Bhavananusit or more familiarly as Loong Por Khao) of the Vipassana Acharn's Training Center, Wat Boonsri Munigorn.

In addition, she underwent Thai Vipassana teacher training with Dr. Khun Mere Siri Karingchai.


The House of Dhamma is a converted shophouse located in the northern suburbs of Bangkok, very near the Latprao MRT station, exit 3.
