    Description

    Here you'll have the chance to develop yourself through the means of meditation, to live and experience directly Thai culture and to learn about Buddhism in Thailand !

    If you're really interested in learning about meditation, the philosophy of Buddhism and the Monks' lifestyle you are welcome but, if you are just looking for free food and accommodation it's not a place for you. It is important that you inform yourself about Thai culture and Buddhism in advance.

    We frequently have knowledgeable members of the community come to teach volunteers about different aspects of Thai culture. For example, paper leaf kites, music, and how to make traditional food and desserts. But most of the time its a calm place where you can take time for yourself and exchange with others.

    After spending 49 years in the USA, I decided to go back to my homeland, Thailand, and do something for my people! On the land that once belonged to my family, I created a little island of peace where Bikkhus, Bikkhunis and foreigners live and work together! Here you'll have the chance to have an exclusive insight in the Thai culture and the lifestyle of the monks.

    I, a female Monk (Bikkhuni), live here with 15 dogs. The island of peace is composed from a garden that stretches between a river and a little lake, Kutis (hut) with ensuite, a dorm and individuals rooms, one meditation hall and one open-air kitchen. But large scale improvements are happening constantly.

    Everyday you'll be able to enjoy the sunrise over the lake and the sunset over the river, you'll have the chance to meditate and learn about the Dhamma, to experience Thai culture and food and to cultivate peace and self-development as well as living in a worldwide community . In exchange you'll be helping a few hours a day with the garden, the dogs and the different tasks in the surroundings. Just help wherever help is needed as well as other various chores and community outreach programs. The days are busy as there is always something to adjust but there is much opportunity to learn and rest !

    Our daily meals are offered from the surrounding community (Bintabat) and should be enough to fulfill you as much as you need (unless you're an ogre then you may need to go to the supermarket). You can also find restaurants and shops in walking distance. It is also possible to store your own goods if you wish

    THIS PLACE IS NOT VEGAN AND CANNOT GUARANTEE VEGETARIAN FOOD ALL THE TIME -as it is all from donation, we don't chose what is given-

    Here, we have Thai people helping with the work in the center and plaining your activities. Beam Beam is the main contact person. You can teach them English (and more !) and talk about your country as they are really friendly !

    Your travel must be vaccinated, finish 2 doses, and have a vaccine passport or vaccine certificate to guarantee that you arrived properly

    We frequently have knowledgeable members of the community come to teach volunteers about different aspects of Thai culture. For example, paper leaf kites, music, and how to make traditional food and desserts. There are also occasional field trips to places like Ayuthaya (old capital of Thailand). As we're only 10 km from the train stop Lat Krabang, it is relatively easy to get to our area. There are plenty of things to do at home like meditation, reading a book on the veranda, fishing, walking, cycling, or simply resting! I know an impressive amount about culture, history, and local transportation, so just ask if you have a question!
