HAPPY NEW YEAR dear Friends! We wish all of you the very best for the coming time. May you stay true to the practice and achieve great results on this beautiful path. This picture was taken during our first retreat last week. We haven't been out there doing retreats with groups for about last two years now. It was super nice starting it all up again. Would be great to see you and sit together with you again soon! ...

How are you doing? We hope this mail finds you in good health and happiness. The year 2022 is coming to an end and it’s the time for a little review. You might be looking back reflecting on who you have become and on how your personal investments, decisions and moves have played out so far.

Perhaps you’re looking into the past year, wondering what has happened. Where has the time gone? Maybe you feel down, complaining about the state of affairs in this world. Or you look back in gratitude, knowing that you have invested your mental and physical energy well, regardless of circumstances. We certainly hope that it’s the latter (or something similar) and you feel a sense of warmth, self-respect and happiness as you review your actions and the formation of new healthy habits.

This brings me right into an interesting reflection…

In each and every moment we perform little actions within our mind. We direct our attention, tap into databases of memory and respond to various events in accordance with our tendencies. It’s the flurry of these (mostly unconscious) inner activities that gives rise to our predominant emotional moods and states, our habits and eventually the creation of our character.

These tendencies and feelings are a type of coded language, consolidating formless, abstract, mental information into a heavier, more “sticky” substance. Directing our attention to certain thought formations and feelings repeatedly will nourish them. That’s especially true if we are invested in these thoughts and feelings, if they matter to us. As long as we cling to these states, we keep them alive and allow them to shape our reality. What matters, becomes matter.

And if we do this often, these states materialize in our bodies. It’s as if our mind is like vapor, our emotions like water and our bodies like ice. The mental tendencies condensate into the water of feelings and emotions as long as we cling to them. The water of emotions and feelings eventually hardens into ice as we keep fueling this process.

During the past two years, we’ve been pretty withdrawn, not so active on social media. We've been mostly focussing on our own practice, our new program and on doing some work online with close students. Phuket Island got really quiet and a lot of people have lost their basis for income. Many left and during the worst times the island even felt a bit post-apocalyptic.

Now finally it seems like some life is returning. People are outside, families and friends are re-connecting with one another and there’s a fresh, vibrant energy in the air. It’s quite beautiful to see! We have long been hesitant when it came to reopening our retreats, but now it just all feels well aligned and so we are going for it again. (You can see the retreats here: https://phuket-meditation.com/retreats-in-phuket/ )

We really missed connecting with people, going out together, sharing space in meditation and going through the meaningful inner process with our guests while they are on retreat.

How has it been for you? Was the time difficult? How did you get through it so far? Did your spiritual practice serve you when the times were difficult?

The Last Few Years

As you can see, we organize our galleries so that the most recent pictures are on top. The further you go down, the older the pictures are. On this page, we go a long way back. We even have albums that reach all the way back to the year 2012. To see those, go to the bottom of this page, where we introduce more albums.

2021 has been a rather introverted and quiet year, due to the Covid situation worldwide. We didn’t actually conduct many retreats or public classes. Most of the year was spent in lockdown. However, we were really busy with our Meditation Mentorship and Spiritual Counseling Program and mostly stayed in touch with our dedicated longterm students for one-on-one online sessions.

Most of us experienced a lot of lockdowns, uncertainty and worldwide instability during 2020. It was an interesting year, showing just how fast things can change and turn upside down. For those of us, who are practitioners on the spiritual path, it was an interesting opportunity to go within and detach a bit more from the global madness of fearful thoughts and ideologies that were revealed in the face of Covid. Fortunately we had our practice to keep us grounded. In the beginning of 2020, there were still some events and retreats until the world shut down completely. Then we started with our new Mindfulness and Meditation Online Events later in the year – and it was great to reconnect with our students worldwide!

2019 was a special year for our teacher Tobi Warzinek. In March he had a major heart surgery, and so there were not so many events, workshops or retreats during this year. We were basically only active until March 2019 – then we started again in January 2020, just before the world shut down in response to Covid. Tobi used this year to focus on recovery and personal practice. We are thankful that all went well and he survived the complicated procedure.

2018 has been a wonderful and very active year for us. We are very thankful! We were fortunate to sit with many people from allover the world during our Meditation Retreats here in Phuket. We also met so many new faces in our regular group meditation sessions. Below, we share our highlights with you, but there is so much more material. It would definitely be too much for this page.

Phuket Meditation Center Fotos

All the pictures above were taken during the actual retreats, classes, morning excursions and events of the Phuket Meditation Center. This image gallery was recently updated. We will regularly upload new pictures, so you can see what we’re up to. You will see, that a lot of the fotos are from our retreats. We begin each morning with our amazing morning excursions, where we meditate, drink tea and explore the path together. It’s definitely the highlight of each day. It would be nice to meet you one day and share some of those meaningful moments.

Wanna see more Images, Videos and Media Options?

We have pictures that reach all the way back into the year 2012 – that’s 10 years of history! Feel free to have a look at our community, our events and activities on our public Photo Albums on Facebook. If you are looking for guided meditations or regular teachings online, we highly recommend you to visit our Youtube Channel. While we offer a lot of videos on Youtube (more than 400!) we are also active on Soundcloud. This is particularly helpful if you love podcasts and want to download the material in order to listen to it offline. Above all we are committed to helping you out on this beautiful journey.

If you are simply looking for updates, news and recent pictures, our facebook and instagram channels are surely the best. In case you have ever joined one of our events or classes, you can also join our group on facebook. This is a great spot to receive direct guidance and ask questions. We certainly do our best to discuss all of your questions in our upcoming events.
