A meditation retreat allows us to withdraw from our usual activities to a quiet and secluded place and devote our time to study, contemplation and meditation. Traditionally serious meditation retreats will last at least 7 to 10 days.
In Thailand I've gained personal experiences and recommend :
International Dharma Hermitage of Wat Suan Mokkh
, Chaiya, Surat Thani province (monthly 10 day retreats),
Dipabhavan meditation center
on Koh Samui (two 7– day retreats every month).
Both are suitable for beginners. The course language is English.
