Chiang Rai Thailand – 15th-22nd June 2019


The New Life Foundation is a nonprofit therapeutic and practice center in northern Thailand that offers a supportive learning space for individuals looking for help with stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, trauma and addiction. In addition to core daily practices of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga, they also offer one-on-one counselling and group workshops based on various modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma release exercises, Enneagram, mindfulness-based relapse prevention, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, non-violent communication, art and dance therapy, and more.

It is their mission to create an organisation where the atmosphere, environment, and all the activities help to cultivate mindfulness, and all community members share a love for learning and spiritual growth.

The centre is run by dedicated long and short term volunteers who make up the heart of the community and work together each day to co-create this wonderfully healing environment.

Striking temples, traditional Thai culture and dramatic mountain scenery mark Chiang Rai’s presence in northern Thailand.

The small city is all about chilling out and taking it in slowly, savoring each moment as it comes.

It has such a diversity of historical and cultural attractions, great local food and a super laid back, down to earth atmosphere.

Just moments from the border of Laos and Myanmar, the countryside radiates a quietude and serenity that is worth embracing.

Our remote location here, off the beaten track is well removed from the large crowd driven by sense desires,

making it the perfect oasis for inner practice, reflection and healing.
