Meditation in Thailand

Free Meditation Classes in ThailandWe offer regular free classes here at the Phuket Meditation Center. We base them on Thai Theravada Buddhist teachings and structure them into three modules. We start with general teachings which arise in dependency upon requests of the students or certain topics which are right for the circumstances. After that we meditate for a while and end the session with a question and answer section.    

Why are the classes free?

We follow the principle of Dana (Generosity, Giving), that means we offer the teachings for the benefit of the people who need to relax and find peace within. In our tradition we consider it incorrect to charge money for this. We see teachings as something giving the highest benefit of happiness and peace. Charging money for something as beneficial and healing would not feel right to us. However you are welcome to practice Dana as well and show your appreciation for the classes by offering any amount of money as long as you are happy to give.

Regular Group Meditation

Thai Meditation ClassesRegular group meditation is not only an excellent way to learn more about meditation for visitors but also wonderful for all locals who just need a place to relax regularly and learn how to cope with the day-to-day stress of living in a foreign country. A Meditation group offers many benefits to those who visit one time and the people who can come every week.
Why group Meditation?
Group Meditation practice often strengthens the experience. Within a group where everyone focusses on calming the mind, cultivating insight and develop loving kindness or compassion it is surprisingly easy for some to attain profound insight. It has been a living tradition for thousands of years to cultivate the mind within a group. It's like this for a good reason. Meet friends who are interested in the same subjects, spend some meaningful time together, enhance the energy of your meditation practice and have a place where you can cleanse and nourish the heart are just a few of the reasons.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple and straightforward: Share tools that increase peace and happiness by providing meaningful education based on the authentic spiritual culture of Thailand. We do that with our life-changing retreats, our free meditation classes and many other interesting programs.
This life is surprisingly short and doesn't leave much time to do all the things that create more balance in this world. We strongly believe that by cultivating the mind, attaining inner peace and developing compassion as well as loving kindness, joy and equanimity we could seriously change the world.
Just imagine for a second what the world would be like if we would have spent all the energy in attaining peace within instead of wasting it inventing more and more distractions to help us ignoring our mind?
Well that's what we do exactly here at the Phuket Meditation Center. We are the voice of your heart and we ask for your kind awareness :)

When you come and attend one of our public Meditation classes, you will meet Tobias Warzinek who is the residing Meditation teacher and consultant here at the center.

Influenced by Tibetan Buddhism
Tobi's first contact with serious Meditation practice was when he entered the Center for Higher Tibetan Studies in Switzerland. This is a Tibetan Buddhist monastic Center founded by Ven. Geshe Rabten and currently led by his chief disciple Ven. Gonsar Rinpoche. There he stayed as a so-called lay student (Upasaka) from May 2002 until February 2009. He mainly studied the Tibetan language, ritualistic and discipline, philosophy and monastic debate as well as Buddhist theory and practice. He also absolved several meditation retreats under the guidance of some of the greatest contemporary meditation teachers during this time.

Reviews from our guests

"Life Changing Retreat"

By Chrissie R., United Kingdom

My daughter and I have just been lucky enough to spend time at the Phuket Meditation Centre with Tobi and Parn. I chose this venue after reading some wonderful reviews about other peoples experiences. We were collected on time from our hotel and brought to the centre to be greeted by Parn, she greeted us with such warmth and sincerity we instantly felt relaxed and at home. The centre is in a quiet area surrounded by beautiful trees and bird song, Our chalet was spacious, clean. air conditioned and comfortable, we were looked after in every possible way, whether it was the daily cleaning of the room, the wonderful variety of very tasty food or just made to feel very comfortable with all the amenities.
