Dharana Meditation and Retreat Center in Phuket

We offer regular free classes here at the Phuket Meditation Center. They are based on Theravada Buddhist teachings. All Sessions are structured into 3 modules. We start with guided meditation. After the meditation there are spontaneous teachings based on requests or circumstances. We end the session with a question and answer section.


Teachings Free ClassesWhy are the classes free?

Teachings Free ClassesWe follow the principle of Dana (Generosity, Giving), that means we offer the teachings for the benefit of the people who need to relax and find peace within. In our tradition we consider it incorrect to charge money for this. We see teachings as something giving the highest benefit of happiness and peace. Charging money for something as beneficial and healing would not feel right to us. However you are welcome to make a donation as long as you are happy to give.


Teachings DonationsWhat happens to the donations?

Teachings DonationsTo us nothing is better than the joy of helping those who really need it. We help you with our meditation classes and you help the community with your donations. We will give a 100% of the collected money to international or local charity organisations to help people and animals all over the world. You can always see how much we gave away and where the money went right here on our donations page. The donations program runs since February 2013.


Teachings Meditation ThailandThai Buddhist Meditation

Teachings Meditation ThailandOur teacher has a background in Thai Buddhist Meditation based on the forest tradition. Its simplicity, direct approach and avoidance of complicated theory and rituals is great for people interested in actual practice. Furthermore it is based on the original Pali scriptures and very close to Buddhas original teachings. For the sake of direct understanding and experience we avoid unnecessary rituals and overly complicated theory so the classes are very suitable for anyone truly interested in developing the mind.


Teachings MeditationOur Meditation Classes

Teachings MeditationOur regular classes are a fantastic possibility for you and your family or friends to get to know more about Meditation in a relaxed and open environment. You can contact us to let us know when you want to come and visit us or simply to ask a question. You don't have to be Buddhist as we focus on cultivating the mind. This is universal and doesn't need some sort of "membership in a club". Buddhists are very much like scientists so you are very welcome to explore the mind together with us, everybody is welcome.
