WPN is more a kindergarten for ordaining Western seekers in the Ajāhn Chah lineage than a center dedicated to contemplative training. Even so, it is
rather amusing that a bhikkhu in this lineage would not know anything about jhāna.
If Ajāhn Ñāṇadhammo is there and has time he would surely be able to answer your questions.

So it is that the wise, seeing action as it actually is,
sees dependent origination and is proficient in the results of action.
