Khao Tham Insight Meditation Center has been holding monthly Vipassana
meditation retreats since 1988, when it was founded by Thai nun Mae Chee
Ahmon to provide a place for international travelers to practice
The Center follows the teachings of Buddhadasa Bhikkhu, of the Thai
Forest Tradition of Theravada. It is associated with Suan Mokkh in
Khao Tham Center is located in the hills above Baan Tai, next to Wat
Khao Tham (Mountain Cave Monastery), which was founded many years ago by
Thai Forest Tradition monks.
Our teacher is Phra Dr Marut Damchaom, and sometimes our abbot Phra
Chaiwat gives teachings as well.
Meditation is practiced continuously throughout the day in silence.
Periods of formal sitting meditation, walking meditation, and awareness
in daily activities are complemented by dhamma talks and meditation
instructions. All activities are formally performed in a group.
The purpose of the Khao Tham Center is only to spread the dhamma. All
teachers and staff are providing their support in the service of the
dhamma, and there is no charge for the teachings and guidance.
Accommodation and meals are provided. Donations are requested and
happily accepted for supplying your physical needs while on retreat.
