Fasting and Spiritual Retreat Experience on Koh Samui
Healing International is celebrating its 25th anniversary
this year! As the second fasting-detox program in Southeast Asia,
our original 7 day Fasting-Course-Program follows Dharma psychology
and philosophy that emphasizes the "empty stomach" as
the metaphor for "emptiness". In learning to satiate the
spirit with true happiness of an empty stomach, you affirm self-healing
and spiritual transformation as you are guided into the body- mind-world
interface, the freedom of a higher focus, and the wisdom to "Love"
the opportunity to care for your health. Thus, as you proceed through
the fast and the 7 day course experience you humbly and graciously
welcome the blessing that comes from starting a new life.
In addition to a
very productive week of fasting with daily self-administered colonic
irrigation (called "Yogalonics"), we support the fasting-cleansing
process with a full-in sequence-course- of-classes taught throughout
the 7 days. At this time two courses are being offered: Fasting
as a Path of Dharma with classes in Bio-Spiritual Nutrition; and,
Dharma for Professionals Fasting Course, with classes
on Dharma, and why we fast as professionals.
Also, during your
week with us, we provide an Iridology reading, with personal-psycho-spiritual
counseling and a lesson on how to interpret your Iridology chart.
Plus, personal counseling is offered as requested during the week.
All Faster-Students who come with various issues of concern, such
as weight loss, trauma, cancer remission, grief and loss, as well
as life changes, such as menopause, are personally supported to
leave with tools, tips and a "Middle Path" (Machimapatipata)
for resolution, that encourages self-empowerment and mindul-wisdom
Presently we direct
fasting courses on the Bay of Peace, on the island of Koh Samui
in Thailand. On occasion we direct fasting courses in Ubud at the
Yoga Barn; and are presently working on offering courses in other
countries. However, at the moment, Koh Samui is our home. Our quiet,
peaceful, intimate, natural, tropical sanctuary awaits those who
are looking to be reborn in paradise.
||By taking part
in a Dharma Healing course each person is inspired to let go
of the old ‘Karma’, to purify, recharge and rejuvenate
the virtues and blessings of what it means to be a healthy human
||Through the fasting
and cleansing process each faster-student is self-
guided to their sacred space within the body and psyche where
healing and spiritual transformation take place.
the classes, Dharma teachings, personal counseling and tropical
retreat environment each individual will feel loved and supported
to progress on a holistic path of health, in harmony with nature
and resonate globally with all living beings.
for weight loss those wishing to lose weight will feel
confident and directed toward maintaining a healthy diet,
a daily ritual of movement and find balance through sacred-self-acceptance.
||As we come together
as a community in our common focus to cleanse and go deeper
into our true being we evolve as spiritual citizens and enlightened
co-creators in a global economy based on wise choices.
