Suffering from stress and burnout?

We can help

mindfulness program

New Life Foundation is a non-profit therapeutic practice center in northern Thailand. We offer a supportive learning space for individuals looking for help with stress and burnout. In addition to core daily practices of mindfulness, meditation, community and yoga, our program offers one-on-one therapy and group workshops based on various modalities.

Our philosophy is to offer quality treatment at substantially lower prices than in your home countries. You are only charged for the actual cost of your stay.  We are a world class non-profit organisation that has been set up to help people like you to overcome your suffering and start living again.

therapy (1)


Our therapists are, above all, kind and caring individuals. We offer a range of evidence-based modalities that help those suffering with burnout including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), and more. You will work with two therapists every week to find what works for you.

Workshop 2


Our qualified therapists will guide you through a program built on principles from positive psychology and the Eightfold Path. In 5 weekly workshops, tackle self-love, relationships, identity/values, boundaries, communication and more. You’ll experiment with art therapy, nonviolent communication and compassionate sharing.



We believe that understanding our mind is the key to overcoming stress and burnout. You will learn to recognize your thoughts and emotions without attaching to them. Silent meditations are available daily as well as body scans, guided meditations on forgiveness, lovingkindness and more. You will learn to bring mindfulness off the cushion and into your daily life.

At New Life you can choose to start your day with yoga, practice in the afternoon, or both. Our experienced instructors plan lessons suitable for all levels, so whether you’re an experienced yogi or just starting out, you’ll fit right in.

Alex, 30, USA

I worked as a nurse for 8 years, going from ICU to hospice to home help. Outside of work I just filled my activities up until the moment I slept. Constantly giving and providing led to me feeling so exhausted, and losing motivation for what I was doing. I got very depressed and had very high anxiety and irritability. I didn’t like who I was when I went to work anymore. There was so much emphasis on productivity and people became like checkboxes.

I heard about New Life from two friends back home and three more while travelling. I have this rule that if more than three people tell me to go somewhere I have to go. They said really good things about the rooms, the food, the people, but also about the deeper level of looking inward and figuring things out. I was trying to decide between a yoga retreat and here. New Life also has yoga twice a day but also workshops, TRE, therapy, so it was kind of a no brainer.

The therapy, workshops and working meditation all taught me to listen to my body and the signals it’s giving me. To ask, if my anxiety or exhaustion could speak, what would they say? I learned to meet my own needs so I could help others with theirs, to work in a relaxed way and that things don’t always need to be done right away.I learned to take breaks so I could be more present in my work. I think that the number one thing that changed is that I feel more authentic. I’ve been able to settle down to who I really am and more feelings are coming out. Some of them hurt, but it’s worth it. The joy is much more real.
