Meals

We offer delicious vegetarian Thai and western-style food during the retreats. Enjoy real soul food and reclaim radiant health with our nutritious recipes. Balancing your meals the right way leads to a mind filled with silent clarity, ready to enter deep meditation with ease. Good nutrition, authentic teachings, comfortable accommodation, amazing excursions, relaxing facilities and refreshing Yoga classes work together in harmony to create a fantastic retreat experience.

Our Breakfast will be at around 09:30 every morning. We offer various delicious breakfast sets at the retreats. That way you will be strong and full of energy during the morning hours. Lunch is at 13:00 pm and Dinner at 18:00 pm.

When you check in you will choose what you eat together with Parn. You will then select your meals day by day. We respect any condition you might have – and of course special wishes – as we keep our group size small enough to allow for this. So feel free to let us know what we can do for you to make your experience even better.

Morning Excurions

We begin every morning with our famous morning excursions. We visit a beautiful location out in nature, have a cup of tea, receive the teachings of this particular day, take a deep breath and meditate together with the rising sun. For many guests, this is the highlight of the day. Once we have arrived at the location, we will start the day with a guided meditation and after that we will offer specific instructions relevant to the day. Once the teachings come to an end our teacher will be available for private interviews. You can also simply relax and enjoy the sunrise, the beaches, the lush forests and the fresh morning air.

Private Tuition

Every morning we offer private interviews and tuition. Should you have any specific challenges or difficulties, please don’t hesitate to make use of this option. During these talks, you receive individualized tasks, practices, guidance, and support – depending on the issue you are currently working on. You might experience personal issues, trauma and hardship that you don’t want to discuss in a group setting (afternoon Q&A for example). This is why our teacher has decided to offer one-on-one tuition to help you personally with your challenges.

Group Size

Our maximum group size is limited to 10 people. The reason for this is that it allows for each participant to get the most out of the experience. It also helps to create a nice and cozy feeling within the groups and allows the participants to not only grow as a person but also as a group together. The retreats are closed and become unavailable once they are fully booked.

Yoga Classes

We offer different Yoga classes every day in the afternoon from 3:30pm – 4:30pm. The classes will help you to open your body to release pent-up energy and create better circulation. Thus they help with healing, mental clarity and a general sense of physical well-being and ease. The classes are designed in a way to help you sit and cultivate a good meditation posture. The Yoga we offer is perfectly suitable for beginners as well as advanced practitioners. The teachers will respect your level and can help you to progress individually due to smaller group sizes.

Our Teacher

Tobi Warzinek has been working as a spiritual guide and mentor since 2009. His journey started back in 2002 when he entered the Tibetan Buddhist monastery of Rabten Choeling. He spent approximately 7 years in the community as a so-called lay student (Upāsaka). During this time Tobi mainly studied the Tibetan language, mind-training and various meditation methods. Additionally he trained in traditional monastic debate and Buddhist philosophy. In 2011 he subsequently began practicing Thai (Theravada) Buddhist mindtraining within the “Forest Tradition”. Altogether he has dedicated his life to the exploration and refinement of introspection throughout the past 18 years.

Learning how to comprehend, consolidate and direct the powerful creative force of our mind is at the root of Tobi’s work. Nobody seems to enjoy their “monkey-mind”. In fact most use a tremendous amount of energy to avoid facing the chaos within. Various experiences of discomfort and suffering in our life often remind us that we need to change from within. Alternatively we might be overwhelmed by habitual negative patterns.

Over the years Tobi gradually developed and refined a systematic approach to inner calm and profound clarity. It is in such a state, that emotional and social turmoil can naturally heal. Moreover by cultivating greater awareness we develop the strength to break free from old destructive patterns. As a consequence we may create new space for personal and spiritual growth. Awareness is at the base of all our experiences. Knowing how to remain centered while living mindfully leads to spiritual health, balance, happiness and fulfillment.

Arrival and Departure

The arrival and registration at the Retreat is on the first retreat day at the reception of Coco Retreat Resort and Spa between 3:30pm – 5:00pm. The retreats officially begin at 5pm. The program ends at around 11am after the last morning excursion and concluding interviews with the teacher.

Free Times

If you look through our schedule you will find a lot of free times during the day. These times are unsupervised and unguided. The idea is to rest and relax deeply. Take naps, watch the clouds pass by, enjoy the pool, have a cup of tea, meditate and contemplate as your heart desires. We encourage rest and non-distraction. This means that you should avoid entertainment and big activities during the retreat. This will help you to completely reset and de-stress in just 4 days.
