Meditation Retreats Thailand:
Dharana Meditation Centre, Phuket

There are many meditation retreats in Thailand. Most of them might be described as "challenging" or difficult for beginners. The Dharana Meditation Centre is not one of these. The Phuket Meditation Center offers weekly free classes, private coaching and a regular retreat program for beginners who want to learn an authentic Meditation technique in comfort. Phuket is one of the most beautiful of the southern islands of Thailand. The regular retreats consist of a 4 night program and usually run from Monday to Friday. The program features daily meditation excursions to some of the most beautiful locations on Phuket Island, one-on-one tuition and daily Yoga classes. The day starts at 6am and the food is apparently delicious and well balanced. There are different program types on offer. Some include accommodation some don't. The Phuket Meditation Center mainly focuses on authentic spiritual development and central questions of life. It was founded in 2009 and run by Tobi Warzinek and Parn Sakda. Tobi provides the teaching and Parn is in charge of administration. Tobi spent 7 years in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Switzerland. He moved to Phuket in February 2009 and studied in the Forest Tradition under the guidance of Adam Mizner and Luang Phor Jumnian Silasettho. The teachings are mostly based on classic Buddhist meditation. However, the center is non-denominational. Everybody with a sincere interest in traditional, down-to-earth mind-training is most welcome. The reviews on Tripadvisor are ecstatic. Some of them are from people who are on their 3rd visit so this is very promising.  All in all this looks like a really wonderful way to spend time on Phuket and you may well find that you come away knowing your true life's purpose. Have a look at the retreats to get an idea of the current program, the prices and the format which seems very relaxed and gentle.
