Eco-Experiences: Meditation @ Bamboo Forest

4-Day Meditation @ Bamboo Forest (December-February)

4-Day Meditation @ Rice Paddy (December-February)

The winter season of Dec-Feb is the perfect time for meditation and wellness retreat at Tigerland Rice Farm. As the last of rice fields completes its harvesting by early Dec, the farm country is a beautiful mix of golden brown hues. The weather is cool and dry.

As another year draws to a close and a new year begins, you may wish to come for a hideaway retreat at Tigerland Rice Farm, enjoy a few days of meditation, silence and relaxation while completely well taken care of by our host family. If you are keen on a wellness regenerative diet, we offer fresh fruits, fresh farm greens or full vegetarian meals.

Meditation in the rice paddyMeditation @ Rice Paddy: It's impossible to describe the serenity of meditating in the open rice paddy. The energy from the Earth below and Heaven above meets in your being and helps you get deeper within during your meditation. You'll sit on a specially designed meditation bamboo platform that comes complete with mossie net.

Meditation @ Bamboo Forest: Unlike the spacious rice paddy, the bamboo forest offers a symphony of nature sounds of birds, animals, insects and the gentle flowing stream. We have a few specially selected meditation spots that are beautifully shaded by bamboo and close by a forest stream. You'll sit on a specially designed meditation bamboo platform that comes complete with mossie net.

2-Day Bamboo Forest Experience (any time of the year)

The bamboo forest has an indescribable natural magnetic draw. Being in the bamboo forest, you can't help but be amazed by the life force of the long, slender yet ultra strong bamboo, growing in teamwork cluster, ever straight and upright, and be awed by the orderliness within a seemingly chaotic forest scene.

Bamboo is such a wonderful plant that feed us, clothe us, provide the material for construction of shelters, furniture, farm and household tools, and for weaving into all kinds of useful things.

In this Bamboo Forest Experience, Father Gun will lead you deep into the bamboo forest to appreciate the eco-diversity of plants and wild life there, show you the different kinds of bamboo, and the very wide ranging usefulness of bamboo. You will also enjoy a self-cooked meal with bamboo rice in the forest.
