Mindfulness Retreat, Koh Samui and Vietnam

Mindfulness means to be aware of your surroundings and your circumstances, including where you are and what you are busy doing. At the same time, mindfulness includes not being overwhelmed by your current environment.

The journey of mindfulness

The practical ways that you can practice mindfulness and become more aware of yourself and your surroundings, while enjoying the full range of emotional and mental benefits it has to offer.

“We must go beyond the constant clamor of ego, beyond the tools of logic and reason, to the still, calm place within us: the realm of the soul.”
– Deepak Chopra


The most obvious method for practicing mindfulness and reaching a state of improved self-awareness is meditation. Meditation alone already has many mental health benefits for those who practice regularly, including improving memory and alleviating less severe symptoms of anxiety or depression.

To get started with meditation, simply sit upright in a comfortable position, and then close your eyes and breathe naturally. Pay attention to how you are breathing without making an effort to control it. You should keep your mind from wandering as much as possible and, if and when it does (it will), you need to gently bring your focus back to your breathing patterns, without judging yourself or getting frustrated.

“By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try, the world is beyond winning.”
– Lao Tzu

Letting go of emotions

When it comes to emotions, it is important to observe your own feelings, but in such a way that you are not judgmental of yourself. It is perfectly normal and healthy to experience both positive and negative types of emotions, such as anger, happiness, sadness, frustration and more. Try to identify each emotion and add it to an appropriate category. This will help you become more aware of your own emotions. Do not hold on to the emotions that you are experiencing. Instead, notice them, accept them, learn from them, and then move on.

“Be yourself, but always your better self.”
– Karl Maeser

Achieving a state of self-awareness

Practicing mindfulness may not be an easy task when you are only getting started. You might find it difficult to observe your own emotions without judging them. You might also find it difficult to become more aware of yourself without judging the smaller things you experience.

It’s a long and ongoing journey. But once you reach a state of self-awareness, you will notice that you automatically start to gain more control over different aspects of your own life.

For example, you will still experience angry emotions, but when you are more aware of yourself, you will be able to recognize it and let it pass, instead of clinging to whatever made you angry and allowing your feelings to overtake you and bring you down.

The more you practice mindfulness techniques, the easier it becomes to be fully aware of your surroundings without being judgmental and without feeling overwhelmed by what is going on. Soon, you’ll begin to experience a state of loving kindness, a higher quality of life, and the ability to have more control over your mind.

Dear all,

I am enjoying my time in Hua Hin, Thailand till early June, and for anyone whom may pass by this slow – life town, please drop by and meet me at the Sukkasart. I am very happy to show you on my little healing garden and we can meditate together.

After the first Vibrational Singing Bowl training this year, there are some more inquiries for the next training, which the next training will hold on June 12th-15th@Sukkasart Hua Hin.

The key focus of this training is based the sound vibrations rather than just the sound itself. And learn to vibrate your own sound thus made you understand the process and a greater benefit of sound healing, allow you to perform a vibrational singing bowl therapy at the healing level.

And moving forward with healing dates for urban healing at Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. I will introduce the retreat at resort destination; Koh Samui for up coming July, Bhutan on September. And Island Resort Healing for Maldives on October.

Yours in health and happiness,

The Earth Dog

Welcome the Year of Earth Dog!

Through time, you can foresee that gradually all things have subtle transformed till we are realized of the changed. This is to imply to our physical energy that has begun to slow down by own overwhelming thoughts with the result of restless mind.

Now is the time to bring back the awareness of resting mind, and to having the fully recharged energy; in order to attain the greater focus on our daily life.

Take this great opportunity to retreat yourself with healing and transforming your body and mind for a greater journey within.

For this Earth Dog Year, I’d like to encourage everyone to define your life purpose and to make your cherished dream come true.

Life is a great journey, once you’ve begun your first step, the next step will follow; and you should enjoy the ride.

This year, I emphasize on the connection of “mind and nature” which is called “psyche” or soul.  As our soul records the memory from our mind; it’s an interesting journey to discover this connection of our memory.

I’m looking forward to meeting you all, and to being your facilitator on this journey.

With love and compassion,

Slow life retreat

Away from your busy lifestyle, cultivating your mind and soul with an inner temple of healing, finding for your own practice for a simple daily harmony.

Nurturing yourself with historical and culture of Khmer empire at Amansara, formerly the guest residence of King Sihanouk, it continues this noble tradition, welcoming the fortunate and famous for a unique boutique experience at Angkor. A Sixties designer delight from the halcyon days of new Khmer architecture, this is Siem Reap’s retro-chic masterpiece.

Encircled by forests and rice paddies, explore more than 1,000 temples from Amansara’s location near the archaeological park, including Angkor Wat, Bayon and Banteay Srei.

“Life is all about learning and transformation, take one step to slow down for better understanding, and moving on the journey”
