I've spent two months in total here, one as a volunteer and another as a resident (and I hope to go back again later in the year). You could say I am a bit of a boomerang - something that happens a lot at New Life (no higher praise than that, I believe). I don't think I've ever felt so... More

I came to New Life a few years ago, when struggling with anxiety and depression and a general feeling of despair for the way we live. Everything turned around for me quite quickly, and it felt as if my life was finally expanding again after years of shrinking. It wasn't easy though, and I was pushed to the limits of... More

I first heard about New Life from some people I had met travelling around Asia. As soon as they told me about the place I knew I had to go- the place sounded like a dream.

Whether they know it or not, a lot of travelers come to Thailand in search of what New Life Foundation offers. It's a wonderful mix of people from all over the world, who come to work on self-development and alleviate suffering from within. At first I was a bit hesitant to join a "recovery" community where I was required to... More

I heard about New Life from two Irish lads, who had volunteered there before and loved it shortly after I started traveling the world in June 2015. So I applied to volunteer for six weeks.

We are a mindful recovery community, nestled amongst the mountains, lakes and rice fields of Northern Thailand. We have beautiful modern facilities, and more than 67 acres of land: a lake, a forest full of teak trees and many gardens with fruit trees and rice fields. From the meditation hall, situated on a hill, we have a beautiful view on the surrounding valleys and mountains. We offer a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape, only 30 minutes away from Chiang Rai airport. All year long we have an energetic blend of people from all across the world and there are free yoga, meditation and tai chi classes every day. ... more   less

“Booking about two months in advance is recommended since all 50 rooms are often full. The longer you stay, the cheaper is will be. The longer you stay, the more your awareness grows. If you have specific skills, it is a wonderful place to contribute your time. The director is open to ideas. I even had the opportunity to make desserts since I enjoy baking, and people enjoy eating! :)”
