Welcome to Khao Tham Insight Meditation Center

The world continues and it is beautiful.
It has only put us in cages as we have done to its wildlife.
The air, water, earth, and sky without us are fine.
When we return, be reminded that we are just guests
We must consider our impact like no other generation ever has.
We must change.
Mohamad Safa @mhdksafa, 5 april 2020

June 2020: Khao Tham is closed due to the COVID-1 pandemic, so that we don’t risk spreading the disease.
Notice will be posted here and in the newsletter when conditions change.

Your best action is to keep yourself in one place and minimise contact with others so as not to spread the virus. Wear mask, wash hands … This is the greatest metta and meditation we can practice these days!

To learn meditation, or have company in your practice, you may want to consider joining a sangha online.

More: Just about everything you want to know about the retreats is on this website, on the Retreat and Practices pages, and their sub-pages — including many of your frequently-asked questions!

To know the current schedule: You can see the schedule below, subscribe to the newsletter, subscribe to the site newsfeed, check our Updates page, follow @KowThamCenter at Twitter.com[?] — or just check back at this website.

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 day of the month).

Donation: All teachings and guidance are given by our teachers at no charge. However the people who supply our food and necessaries, do repairs, and more, need to make a living, so we must request a donation of Bt 5,000 to cover the costs of your physical needs for the ten days of retreat.
