These action plans are created with support from the community and guidance from the experienced staff.

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.

  • 5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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

  • 2 star review  I didn't like the attitude of the yoga teacher who taught the Ariel Yoga. American or Canadian man. His manner was not appropriate and not yogi at all. I also met a person who was doing a retreat here and her experience was quite a negative one.

  • 5 star review  Samma Karuna is beautiful school of wellness & healing arts that all who are seeking excellent classes, nurturing community & the added bonus of personal transformation should go to. I spent the month of March 2015 at their yoga teacher training program & it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Beyond preparing me to teach yoga, I found myself again, made lifelong friends, and my heart feels stronger & more full than ever before. I am eternally grateful for my time at Samma Karuna & can't wait to return again.
