Our regular 4 day retreats in Phuket combine the practice of time-tested Meditation methods with the science of modern-day mind training techniques. During the program, we focus on two practical key components: Cultivating Happiness and Releasing Stress. We all want to be happy, comfortable and at ease. At the same time, we try to avoid all forms of suffering, anxiety and stress. To achieve these goals we will introduce you the powers of intention, clarity and inner silence while staying down to earth and highly practical.
Authentic Meditation and Mindfulness techniques are at the core of our events and we encourage you to integrate every circumstance into the path. In order for the practice to show results, it should be based on simplicity and work everywhere and at all times in our life. We have created a unique program that offers deep rest and encourages personal growth at the same time. You will also learn the art of releasing stress by gaining direct insight into the nature of your mind. When looking through the mechanics of suffering and stress thoroughly we can rest well centered – even in the face of difficult circumstances.
Our Retreats are ideal for beginners, but we found that even intermediate and advanced meditators can thoroughly enjoy them. Instead of focusing on hard discipline and strict rules, we work with your sense of purpose and direction. We invite you to discover Meditation as a wholesome, fun and meaningful activity that has profound impacts on health, wellbeing and relationships.
We create a relaxing learning environment with daily excursions, small groups and lots of personal attention to help you let go of stress and build inner strength efficiently. Our program is well balanced and every aspect of it supports your training. Whether it’s our healthy vegetarian meals, guided Meditations, authentic teachings, daily Yoga classes, private tuition or our famous morning-excursions, it supports healing and transformation on all levels.
You will learn a complete and authentic Meditation technique with us. We also show you how to create the life you want from the inside out by using visualization, breath work and different self-healing methods. Throughout the program, you will learn how to increase mental acuity, clarity and your ability to concentrate. With more focus and inner stability, we become empowered to access deeper stages of insight and self-knowledge. Here’s what you can expect to learn:
And much more!

COCO RETREAT: That’s where we do the Retreats
They have their own gym, pool, restaurant and cafeteria and during the day you have the whole place for yourself. They also host tour groups which return most evenings from their excursions and it can be a bit lively/noisy at times.
BAAN PHU CHALONG: 2-3 Minutes by foot from Coco Retreat
It’s a very quiet place and well maintained. They have a pool and very nice rooms. It’s not far from the main place. There’s no cafeteria and no restaurant at the resort itself. It’s the neighbor of Coco Retreat and it takes about two minutes to walk to the classes.
FOREST BUNGALOWS: 12-15 Minutes by foot from Coco Retreat
Forest Bungalows are a quiet and affordable location in Soi Taiad. They are a 15 minute walk away from where we do the retreats (at Coco Retreat Resort & Spa). The resort is close to the many nice healthy restaurants and gyms in the famous Soi Taiad.
COCOVILLE PHUKET: 17-20 Minutes by foot from Coco Retreat
Cocoville Resort is a great place to stay, not too far from the main place where we do classes. It should take you between 15 and 20 minutes to walk over to Coco Retreat. The two resorts are related and offer high-quality rooms, food and service.
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.
