Meditation Instructions and Dhamma Talks in English with Anthony Markwell (two hours per day) provide clear directions and guidelines. Personal Interviews and reporting to discuss and fine tune your practice will be available daily throughout the retreats.

These are silent, intensive residential retreats and you must stay at Indriya during the whole retreat. We offer accommodation in either a single room or shared room or a tent in the garden. Rooms and tents are allocated on arrival on a first come, first served basis. We offer two delicious vegetarian meals daily plus afternoon drinks.

Please bring your passport, bed sheets and pillow, a water bottle, flashlight, medicines, soap, towels, clothes washing powder, tampons and mosquito repellant. Clothing should be loose fitting and covering the knees and shoulders.

Please be well rested before arrival. You should not arrive exhausted from travelling. Allow a day of complete rest before starting the retreat for best results.

A retreat fee of 5,000 baht (130 €) per 10-day retreat to cover the centre’s expenses for providing 10 nights accommodation and daily vegetarian meals, and afternoon fruit and drinks is gratefully received at registration. (4,000 for 7-days retreat)

There is no fee for the Teachings of the Buddha @ Indriya Retreat and you are invited to experience the depth and clarity of these Priceless 2600 year old Instructions. The Teachings are offered as a Gift of Dhamma.

Traditionally, donations may be offered to express gratitude to the teacher and to help expand and upgrade the centre’s infrastructure. These donations are very much appreciated at the end of the retreat.

We look forward to giving you a profound meditation experience  🙏🙏🙏
