Thailand offers opportunities for holistic relaxation and healing in many ways, including welcoming visitors to take part in meditation.One can literally walk into almost any temple, or Buddhist compound, in the country and feel most welcome.

Matching body and mind to create a healthy equilibrium is a common task for Thais. This task is achieved through the practice of Buddhism featuring meditation and its important role in sustaining a healthy lifestyle.

Meditation centers have been popular in Thailand for many years; and as Westerners have long been coming to Thailand to learn, many courses are taught in English. There are many places of meditation in Thailand that are free of charge, but you can choose to donate something to the temple or the meditation centers to assist with their expenses.
