In May, 2012, New Life hosted the ‘Earth Breathing, Breathing Earth’ Retreat. The retreat was lead by Jon Jandai of Pun Pun, a center for self-reliance in Chiang Mai. He not only provided extensive instruction in mindfulness-awareness, but also bodywork techniques that had helped himself to overcome his fears.
Sustainability is a key element to the running of the New Life Foundation. An essential part of which is the food for the staff, residents and volunteers. We have worked hard to develop sustainable food sources – vegetable garden, rice fields, and fruit trees. In this video you will get a peak behind the scenes.
With Jon Jandai & Vichak Panich, 2 – 6 May 2012: Opportunity to learn meditation techniques, Buddhist teachings and practices with an experienced instructor. This five-day retreat brings together the state of embodiment in meditation practice and daily activities in a mindfulness-based recovery community.
New Life was recently honored by a visit from agriculture guru Jon Jandai. Jon is one of Thailand’s leading proponents of the Seed Saving movement, the Natural Building movement, and the Organic Gardening movement. During his two and a half hour workshop he gave us some excellent advice.
