Santikaro and his wife Jo Marie care for Liberation Park, a Buddhist Dhamma refuge in the northern reaches of the Kickapoo watershed. From this base, Santikaro teaches Early Buddhism and meditation around the Midwest and internationally, with an emphasis on using the original discourses to think and see more clearly into our postmodern American challenges and biases. For many years he lived as a Buddhist monk in southern Thailand, as a student and translator of Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu. In recent years, his practice has incorporated treatment for and recovery from cancer. He also works with the Enneagram and 12-step programs. Currently, he is exploring how Buddha-Dhamma can aid in confronting and unraveling the racism that pervades our society.
