Welcome to Khao Tham Insight Meditation 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, but the only way we can pay those costs is by your donation.

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

10-day October retreat from 10th to 20th
21-day October retreat as extension of the 10-day, until 30th.

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 the costs of your physical needs for the ten days of retreat.
