This place is magical and it will shake you and make sure you know which way you are supposed to go. I join NLF as volunteer for 1 month. Accommodation was very basic, far from luxury, but all you need. Food was good and there was plenty, all is vegetarian. But nearby you can find some meet if needed or... More

I spent 2 weeks as a volunteer @ New Life Foundation and it was a once in a lifetime experience. An extraordinary human experience and interactions between residents, volunteers and guests. The energy is neither too hippie nor too hipster. Just human beings trying to live a mindful life. As a volunteer you only work 2.5 hours in the morning... More

I cannot speak highly enough about New Life Foundation in Chiang Rai, Thailand. I spent an amazing 3 weeks as the volunteer movement instructor (yoga, QiGong, and JourneyDance). There were so many beautiful moments~ chanting 'om' in the steam room (which will REALLY clear your sinuses on the inhale), asking a fellow volunteer to sing at my final yoga class... More

Such a beautiful, peaceful community. I really enjoyed all the activities (yoga, meditation, art therapy, etc). Rooms were ensuite, clean, comfortable. Fee covers accommodation and all meals and most activities (Enneagram and life coaching at low extra cost). Sunday excursions to nearby attractions, trekking, hot springs were fantastic. Met so many lovely people during my 4 week stay. Highly recommended.
