These action plans are created with support from the community and guidance from the experienced staff.
Our awakening and healing program that runs throughout the year is designed to support you in your own development. Through deep experiential activities, you will learn the tools to find your own truth and path as a cornerstone for a more happy, vital and fulfilled life.
Our regular activities
What make us special…
We believe that experiential learning is the best form of learning. Anything that we experience directly tends to have a greater impact on us. Hence, we focus on achieving true wisdom, acquired through our own experience, rather than ‘receiving’ the experiences of a guru or teacher through words or ancient text.
Our sole purpose is to help each and every individual to become who they really want to be. Through self-exploration, everyone can free themselves from the collective consciousness and become their true selves.
Reconnecting people with their inner self and inner wisdom helps them to lead a more prosperous and fulfilling life. We facilitate their journey of self-exploration, rather than giving them prescribed answers or solutions.
A rational mind and a path of experiential learning is the best way to acquire spiritual teachings and be able to sustain them.

An amazing place to do yoga, try different meditations, meet wonderful, like minded people from all around the world, do great workshops... And the yoga platform in the middle of the jungle is just stunning!!!
Samma Karuna is the most magical place on Earth. You plan to stay a week, and you're likely going to [want to] stay much longer. I'll be back again for a MUCH longer stay.
Da jeg provde det for mange aar siden var jeg overbevist om at det var prosesser i meg selv som styrte det hele - og det maa det ha vaert - noe annet ville ikke vare logisk. Omtrent som en psykedelisk trip, Er du i stand til aa telle tall du vet du ikke omgaas med til daglig, eller se farger og tenke begreper som er irrasjonelle eller du vet er bare noe tull (?) Da er du muligens paa rett vei.
wonderful tip for yoga and it is good job - sammakaruna
Samma Karuna is a special place. You have the opportunity to learn and try many different kinds of meditation which are led professionally. The location is beautiful and so is the owner, Ishi. I went through a hard time on Koh Phangan and even though I hardly knew the owner, Ishi gave me the support I needed by offering an ear and advice. I wasn't truly able to express my gratitude at the time, so big thank you to you Ishi. You are wise, humble and have an open heart. Yours truly, Alexander Field
Brings an uncontrollable smile in my heart and on my face every time I think of it:)) I love this place.
I had the genuine pleasure of attending Samma Karuna for several months, and I am so grateful to the universe for bringing me into contact with this magical center of love!!! Samma Karuna is so much more than a place where people do yoga, and can explore a wide variety of meditations, wisdom sessions, tantra, and many many other heart opening workshops.... I felt this place has been truly enchanted by the love and good will poured into it by the creators, teachers, student, and volunteers alike... Unfortunately, there are no words to describe some things, you just have to experience it for yourself!! So If you are thinking about spending some time here, all i can say to you is to follow your heart..... and do it! :)
I have just completed a month of volunteering at Samma Karuna Awakening and Healing Centre, and I wish I could stay longer. This has truly been a transformative experience. Surrounded by wonderful open-minded people, immersed in love and wisdom I found myself in an environment where growth comes naturally through daily yoga and meditation practice. There is a variety of classes to choose from to work on your mind, body and spirit, and all this in a friendly supportive atmosphere. Truly wonderful place. Thank you, beautiful family.
A & H Program is amazing. So much inspiration to me as an absolute beginner in kind of such experiences. Very unique place with amazing classes, teachers & people.
