New Life Foundation

New Life Foundation is a nonprofit therapeutic and practice centre in northern Thailand. We offer a supportive learning space for individuals looking for help with stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, trauma, or addiction. In addition to core daily practices of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga, our program offers one-on-one counselling and group workshops based on various modalities, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), trauma release exercises (TRE), Enneagram, mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), non-violent communication (NVC), art and dance therapy, and more.


Benefit from our full mindfulness program, the guidance of our therapists, and the support of our community.


Share your skills and learn new ones, work in agriculture or earth building, and immerse yourself in mindful living.


Take some time to unwind, relax, and re-connect with our flexible guest program.

Get To Know Us

It’s pretty hard to describe the sight of the sun rising over the paddy fields, the fog rolling over the lake, or a flock of friendly ducks blocking your path to the meditation hall (tip – if you proceed slowly, they will let you through). It’s similarly difficult to share the joy of a simple smile, the feeling of relief when someone listens, or the warmth gained from supportive friends. Still, we can try. This series of short films gives you a small glimpse of what life is like here at the foundation.
