Retreat in Chiang Rai

November 3, 2011

THE PATH IS THE GOAL

3 day meditation retreat with Vichak Panich at New Life Foundation
25 – 27 November 2011

Who?

Vichak Panich is an educator and teacher of Spirit in Education Movement (SEM) founded by the renowned Thai social activist, Sulak Sivaraksa. Vichak studied religion at Naropa University and intensive meditation in the Tibetan tradition of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche under the guidance of Reggie Ray. At present Vichak teaches at Semsikkhalai, Suan Mokkh and many other institutes in Thailand and writes books on meditation and Buddhist practice in the modern world.

What?

For this retreat we invite beginning practitioners as well as experienced meditators from all different lineages to come and practice, learn and share together, as friends. We will learn some tools to cultivate real body awareness and relaxation and after every session we will share about our practice. English – Thai translation will be available during the whole retreat.

This workshop will give a unique occasion for people who practice in different lineages to come and have a chat about our inner journey and engage in deep self-exploration. Drawing on the mediums of deep relaxation, bodywork and meditation we will explore and develop the meaning and qualities of our own inner “spiritual warrior”.

Where?

Retreatants have a single room each, with shower, bed, sheets, towel and fan. Please notify us in advance if you would like a double room. Vegetarian meals are served 3 times a day. Fruit, tea and coffee will be available all day long. The retreat will include teachings, guided meditation practice and yoga with an experienced teacher. There will be plenty of time to enjoy the swimming pool and our herbal steam bath. The price for the retreat is 3,000 THB. Please help us spread the word and bring some friends.
