Our Sisterhood is a sacred gathering, coming together to lift spirits, find our light and shine.  

Our circle is here to create a space that encourages introspection and investigation, leading the way to a deeper understanding of purpose and belonging!

Wherever we are in our practice, advanced or just beginning , it can be very helpful to have support and community.

We hope you can come and join us to explore meditation, listen to one another's experiences and share what is in our hearts!

In our coming together, the strength of sisterhood can enrich our lives, opening the door to deep and nourishing friendships and a collective healing .

Retreats & visits to our forest monasteries and retreat centres

We very much encourage our practitioners and friends to go and visit the other Thai Forest Buddhist Centres around the country. These places are well established and have been running as functioning monasteries and retreat centres for many years. They provide the perfect environment to take a break from the business and stresses of life and find some well-being and healing. You can gain much insight and peace through the practice of meditation, receiving compassionate spiritual support and top-notch guidance from these world renowned Ajahns (teachers).

All 4 centres are located in beautiful countryside where good fresh air and great walks can be experienced also.

These places are always beneficial and a delight to visit!
