Welcome to Khao Tham Center

Vipassana meditation retreats are offered in the beautiful forested hills above Baan Tai, on Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand. The retreats are taught and managed by experienced meditation teachers at no charge. All meals and accommodation are provided, and the only we have have to cover those costs is by your donation.

English-language retreat – 10th to 20th of each month

There will be an English-language retreat in July.
Please contact Tookata to verify the July retreat!

Russian-language retreat – 23rd to 30th of each month

→ July Russian-language retreat is to be decided.←
Please contact Tookata if you would like a Russian-language retreat in July!

This is the “low season” on Koh PhaNgan, so if you like a retreat to be less populated, this could be a good one for you.

To know the current schedule you can check back on this website, subscribe to our newsfeed, and follow @KowThamCenter at Twitter.com.

Registration: There is no online or pre-registration. You must register in person at the Khao Tham Center from 8:30am-4.00pm on the first day of the retreat (10th of the month for English-language, 23rd of the month for Russian-language).
Donation: All teachings and guidance are given by our teachers at no charge. However the food and supply shops are not so generous, so we must request a donation of Bt 5,000 to cover your physical needs while on retreat.

For more information about the retreats, you can check the Retreat page and its subpages.
