The 5 days I spent at the Phuket Meditation Centre were life changing. It was eye opening to learn how cruel the mind can be and how much suffering it creates. I left the retreat completely refreshed and with the tools needed to move toward a life of true peace and happiness. Thanks Tobi!

It was the most wonderful four days. I found the way to peace and calm and enjoyment. I hope that as many people as possible will take this opportunity to find their inner truth with Toby and Parn. I found so much more that I could not even imagine.

This is the place where you want to go if you want to learn mindfulness. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student of the art. Tobi will tailor the program in accordance with your level and needs and offers you the ideal combination of theory and practice. Tobi truly is the embodiment of German quality (or grundlichheit) and...

I spent 4 days at the retreat because I wanted to learn how to meditate. As a retiring business man and wanted to rid myself of 40 years of clutter. What I got was a lot more than meditation skills. It was an internal voyage that I recommend to anyone seeking balance and serenity. The grounds are tranquil and well...

Spent such a wonderful time with Toni and Parn. The days flew past with exquisite locations in the early mornings and activities throughout the afternoon, the mind and body had the perfect opportunity to relax. As Tobi describes 'take a holiday for the heart' which sums it up perfectly. If you're an experienced practitioner or a complete beginner, the retreat...

I had a great time. It's a perfect introduction to meditation, especially if you don't think you're ready for a 10 day retreat. The food was the best part! The only thing I didn't like was the Yoga class. The teacher was the opposite of Zen. But hopefully they get a new one. :D

I must acknowledge that I primarily chose this retreat as a result of convenience (the only retreat found in this region at convenient time) and personal necessity (sense of urgency to find answers). i was looking for running away from my life and i am glad i found such a retreat that challenges immediately the run away pattern, empowering you...

I have been attending the beginner classes on a Tuesday 11am and Thursday 7pm. I can honestly say that this has been a truly unbelievable experience. The guided meditation has given me a great start to the practice and Tobi's discussion at the end of the class has opened my eyes to a lot of areas of my life. I...

Hi friends I was lucky enough to visit Tobi and Parn last week and 6 days on i still feel amazing. Before attending the retreat i had tried to teach myself meditation through youtube videos, guided meditations and various breathing techniques on and off for a few years but sadly never really felt i was achieving much.
