Hello and thank you for your interest in our unique Darkroom Retreat in Thailand in March 2012. This follows on from the first retreat we did in 2005 and the second in 2007, which were extremely successful on all levels with participants going to even deeper levels in their personal evolutionary journeys.

We are happy to announce that starting 2012 we will be holding two shorter Darkroom Retreats and these are your options .

1) A 9 day retreat with 8 days and 8 nights spent in darkness with 1 day following for integration back into the light - if you have not done a Darkroom Retreat with Jasmuheen before then this is the only option you have of attending this retreat. THIS RETREAT IS CURRENTLY BOOKED OUT AND ON WAITLIST ONLY. Please put your name on the waitlist anyway, as this list tends to change quite dramatically and we are sure that if you are meant to be there a space will open up for you.

2) An 8 day retreat will follow immediately with 7 days and 7 nights spent in darkness with 1 day following for integration back into the light. This retreat can only be attended by people who have already completed a Darkroom Retreat with Jasmuheen.

3) This option is for first time participants only. To do both retreats one after the other. Please note that for this you will stay in the dark on your own while the cleaners come in to clean the complex which will mean your total darkroom exposure will be 17 days and 17 nights plus 1 day following for integration back into the light. This option will need to be booked in advance and not decided on at the last minute as places are limited.

Flights & Weather: You need to arrange these yourself directly with your travel agent or the internet. Chiang Mai is approx. a 1 hour flight time from Bangkok which is approx 9-11 hours flying time from Europe - depending where you fly from. Tao Gardens will collect you from the airport if you let them know in advance all your arrival time details. A local taxi costs approx. 550 baht or 18USD. Although it is winter in Thailand, it is also very humid so bring swimmers, summer clothes plus light tracksuits for warmth as nights can be chilly as can the darkroom environment.

Further Contact & Pre retreat Preparation: Towards the end of 2011 we will contact you again to advise you exactly what you need to bring but we recommend that you begin a suitable detox program a few months before - if required - so that your system is well prepared prior before your arrival. Remember this is a food free retreat with only liquids of juices and water during the full 14 days and the cleaner your system the more enjoyable your darkroom experience will be. The accommodation during the dark room retreat is well attended and unlike the dark caves of the yogis, it is free from bugs, snakes and scorpions, however dealing with our fears of being deprived of our sense of sight is part of the adventure! As mentioned previously, this retreat is not for the fainthearted so prepare well, get as fit and healthy as you can and come and enjoy the journey!

Funding: If for some reason you do not have the funds to come then tell the universe to bring you the money, and/or to clear your path of any obstacles so that you can attend and if you are meant to be with us, then this will happen. Also do what is required on the physical plane to bring this into being. For those in this situation read the articles on Wealth and Abundance at:
