land of the smiles
Located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand's diverse landscape and rich culture provide travelers the opportunity to be transported in time through the senses. Journey to a land far from the familiarity of the West and become immersed Thailand's spiritual sanctuary of nature. Through connection with nature and animals, we'll celebrate the miracle of living as we explore the fruits of Thailand's Buddhist roots.
Presence: AWaken the inner light
We strive to live in the moment and appreciate everything while it is happening. Travel is the perfect catalyst for living in the presence as we can truly absorb ancient lands with new eyes. Join our small group for a 10-day wellness journey through Thailand, led by Lena Franklin, as we learn to cultivate presence and begin to understand our sense of interdependence with all beings. Together we will weave mindfulness, meditation and yoga into a daily practice to create the grounding foundation to explore as a conscious traveler.
On the full moon of the twelfth month in the Thai lunar calendar, Chiang Mai is illuminated. Loy Krathong is believed to be an ancient Brahmanic festival where people would make lanterns using candles and paper to honor the gods. Today, the festival has been modernized for Thai culture and pays respect to Lord Buddha. As you light your lantern to honor Buddha, you also send a wish for the coming year into the heavens or down the river to be carried by the gods into your future.
