Journeys of Recovery in a Mindful Community

These fascinating real life stories of recovery from depression, addiction and burn-out demonstrate that however far we fall there is always hope.


Suffering comes in many forms. From depression to alcoholism, from drug addiction to sudden bereavement, from abuse to burnout, from social anxiety to relationship issues and more.
In the hills of northern Thailand is a unique and exciting mindful recovery community where people from all over the world can learn to discover a new life through the practice of mindfulness. In this book, ten of the residents of the New Life Foundation share their own stories, demonstrating how they have benefited through the practice of mindfulness. Their fascinating true-life narratives demonstrate that however far we fall, there is always hope and the opportunity to learn and grow from our experience.
The foundation is a registered non-profit organization that aims to provide affordable support for all in need. 100% of the royalties from this book will be donated to New Life.


New Life Stories: Journeys of Recovery in a Mindful Community documents a northern Thailand community where mindful recovery is promoted, and where people from around the world come to heal and discover a new life based on mindfulness. Ten residents of the New Life Foundation here explore their experiences, drawing direct connections to something usually treated with philosophical inquiry. Through these discussions linking mindful concepts to life benefits and how they were actually applied, readers gain a better knowledge of how growth happens, and what the applied concepts of mindfulness actually looks like. First-person stories are the key to understanding, here. ~ Midwest Book Review, Bookwatch April 2015

These inspiring and touching real-life stories demonstrate how mindfulness and therapy can help to deal with the issues underlying addiction. ~ Johan Hansen, Founder and President of the New Life Foundation

These inspiring stories demonstrate the transformative power of mindfulness and meditation practice; the power to heal the heart-mind in recovery; and beyond. These are real people; real stories and they give real hope. I recommend this book. ~ Vince Cullen, Founder of Hungry Ghost Retreats.
