New Life Foundation

Our mindful recovery community offers a rich and supportive learning space for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of themselves. Many of us have struggled with hardships and difficulties but have never had the opportunity to heal. At New Life, people from all over the world come together to find new ways to relate to the challenges they face. Here, we come to the realisation that no matter how isolated we may feel, we are never alone.

Residents

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

Volunteers

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

Guests

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.
