5 Day Ecological Meditation Adventure in Koh Phangan, Thailand - March 2018
About This Event
Join us in Thailand for an epic 5-day retreat where you will learn to habitually bring your full attention into the present moment using meditation and flow psychology, thereby heightening your ecological awareness of the natural surroundings in one of our Planet Earth’s most awe-inspiring tropical paradises.
Unplug from today’s hyper-connected world and reconnect with nature while exploring white sand beaches, hiking up to the most panoramic lookouts, and trekking through the refreshing tropical jungle. Then, top it off with 2 more days of nature immersion sailing the 42-island Ang Thong Archipelago.
On this adventure, you will learn about Thailand’s unique tropical island ecology and immerse yourself in the biodiverse rainforest of Koh Phangan’s Than Sadet National Park. It’s the perfect ecosystem to expand your ecological awareness and develop a deeper appreciation for the interconnected wonders of nature.
We will also experience Thailand’s unique forest monk tradition where orange-robed monks spend their days walking and reciting prayers in the jungle. You will learn the amazing story of the local forest monks who lobbied to preserve the unique ecology of Koh Phangan and had the foresight to advocate for the establishment of Than Sadet National Park.
Whereas Thailand is known for its Buddhist temples and monasteries, it’s also one of the most animistic societies in the world. Exploring Koh Phangan, we will gain insight into the Thai traditions of building Spirit Houses and honoring Sacred Trees found throughout the island while also exploring the island’s fascinating Buddhist monasteries.
Each day will include an in-depth workshop for learning life-changing practices, including: sensory immersion meditation, flow psychology and creative storytelling, partnered with ecological knowledge about the tropical flora and fauna.
Make lifelong friends, surrounding yourself with motivated individuals who want to foster a better world in harmony with nature. Then, return home transformed and eager to share your ecological knowledge with your local community.
