Welcome to Samma Karuna!

We are an International School of Awakening and Healing, and Yoga Retreat Centre in Thailand. We are a mindfulness community, for people who are called to learn to live a happier, more fulfilled and enriched life, based on principles of self-development, acceptance and celebration.

What We Do
The Awakening & Healing Program, Yoga Teacher Training, Bio Development Teacher Training and Detoxification Program are our primary programs. Additionally, festivals, workshops and conscious events for self-development are regularly run at Samma Karuna. Every individual is supported in developing their own action plan to enable them to discover their true self and underlying potential, which in turn helps them live a more enriched life. 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.

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.
