AMAYEN Sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand is your best-kept-secret and ultimate transformative travel destination for taking time out, resting and fine-tuning your mind and body to enjoy an extraordinary, pleasant lifestyle and true personal freedom. Call it a quiet makeover for the privileged few.

In order to cultivate and increase your well-being, you need to experience stillness by looking inward to ask yourself: What do I want out of life? Is there joy, ease and lightness in what I’m doing? The answers to these questions will point you in the right direction.

We all tend to focus on things happening around us and forget to take care of ourselves. We don’t even know definitively what we want because we’re struggling. We don’t even know what we feel. Your retreat at AMAYEN Sanctuary is a perfect opportunity to refrain from overthinking and explore your inner world and recharge your mind and body.

Our approach to achieving great results? A simple collection of relaxation methods with a splash of comfort: yoga, meditation, mindful breathing, creative visualization, organic vegan cuisine and some wonderful massages thrown in — not forgetting to have some fun along the way!

AMAYEN – All Inclusive Yoga Retreat in Chiang Mai-Thailand

Why AMAYEN? “My Journey from Confusion to Clarity”

BY MIGUEL KIRJON, OWNER & FOUNDER

“I was sitting at my desk one morning, working on the 10th business idea I had come up with in the last six months, and began to feel a sense of emptiness that made me sit back and pause. I was confused and felt trapped in my life. My health was deteriorating and my relationship had seen better days. The clock was ticking but my life was standing still. I imagined how I would feel if I were stuck for another year?…Another five?

Oh, hell no! Why was I working so hard? Why was I chasing every new idea that came to mind? I was desperate to be successful. But I didn’t realize that success as a life long entrepreneur in my mind meant never taking a break, filling my time up with busyness, always burning out, and living a life that I wasn’t excited to live. I needed to get a new perspective on my situation. I needed to find clarity. Then it gradually became clear: Rest; that’s what had been missing. I needed to breakout of my daily routine and get some alone time.”

“Having spent many years in the hotel industry designing, branding and creating unique and memorable guest experiences I knew that I could literally create a place of stillness, warmth and safety. A sanctuary where nothing is expected of you, where relaxing and letting time pass are your only priorities. A place where you can discover your inner world, your desires and where you learn how to actively design your way forward.

I felt good about myself. The real win for me, though, was that after 30 years of attending personal growth workshops all over the world and being trained in healing, life coaching and meditation, I could now understand and guide others a way out who were stuck as well. I discovered that not only did I feel terrific physically and mentally, but inviting and offering guidance to other people who wanted to live a free and independent life so that every moment is filled with beauty and excitement made me feel even more alive. 

This is how AMAYEN Sanctuary came to life.”

The Possibility of a Better You, Now!

You matter. Your well-being is important. Your life is the result of past and future choices. You are in charge. You want a more fulfilling life now unlike most people, who lack the courage to do the things they want, instead of what they feel they should.

The world needs more inspirational leaders and role models like you who are taking responsibility for their lives to make the world a better place. Just imagine what life would be like if you could confidently unleash the creativity within you!

Now is the time to take action, especially if you have been stuck in an unpleasant situation for a long time. Life will be so much simpler when you take the decision to become everything you can be.

Enjoy your transformative inspirational retreat while looking at your current situation with a fresh sense of perspective so that you can take the necessary steps for improvement. You hold the key to true change — take the decision to find clarity in days rather than years!

Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. There are many ways to embrace vegan living. Yet one thing all vegans have in common is a plant-based diet avoiding all animal foods such as meat (including fish, shellfish and insects), dairy and eggs.

For the animals Preventing the exploitation of animals is not the only reason for becoming vegan, but for many it remains the key factor in their decision to go vegan and stay vegan. Having emotional attachments with animals may form part of that reason, while many believe that all sentient creatures have a right to life and freedom. Specifics aside, avoiding animal products is one of the most obvious ways you can take a stand against animal cruelty and animal exploitation everywhere. For your health Well-planned vegan diets follow healthy eating guidelines, and contain all the nutrients that our bodies need. Both the British Dietetic Association and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognise that they are suitable for every age and stage of life. Some research has linked vegan diets with lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and lower rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer. For the environment From recycling our household rubbish to cycling to work, we’re all aware of ways to live a greener life. One of the most effective things an individual can do to lower their carbon footprint is to avoid all animal products. This goes way beyond the problem of cow flatulence! Why is meat and dairy so bad for the environment? The production of meat and other animal products places a heavy burden on the environment – from crops and water required to feed the animals, to the transport and other processes involved from farm to fork. The vast amount of grain feed required for meat production is a significant contributor to deforestation, habitat loss and species extinction. In Brazil alone, the equivalent of 5.6 million acres of land is used to grow soya beans for animals in Europe. This land contributes to developing world malnutrition by driving impoverished populations to grow cash crops for animal feed, rather than food for themselves. On the other hand, considerably lower quantities of crops and water are required to sustain a vegan diet, making the switch to veganism one of the easiest, most enjoyable and most effective ways to reduce our impact on the environment. For people Just like veganism is the sustainable option when it comes to looking after our planet, plant-based living is also a more sustainable way of feeding the human family. A plant-based diet requires only one third of the land needed to support a meat and dairy diet. With rising global food and water insecurity due to a myriad of environmental and socio-economic problems, there’s never been a better time to adopt a more sustainable way of living. Avoiding animal products is not just one of the simplest ways an individual can reduce the strain on food as well as other resources, it’s the simplest way to take a stand against inefficient food systems which disproportionately affects the poorest people all over the world. Read more here on how vegan diets can help people. Why vegetarian isn’t enough The suffering caused by the dairy and egg industry is possibly less well publicised than the plight of factory farmed animals. The production of dairy products necessitates the death of countless male calves that are of no use to the dairy farmer, as well as the premature death of cows slaughtered when their milk production decreases. Similarly, in the egg industry, even ‘ethical’ or ‘free range’ eggs involve the killing of the ‘unnecessary’ male chicks when just a day old. Ethical meat? It’s tempting to want to believe that the meat we eat is ethical, that our ‘food animals’ have lived full, happy lives and that they have experienced no pain or fear at the slaughterhouse. Yet the sad truth is that all living creatures (even those labelled ‘free range’ or ‘organic’) fear death, just as we do. No matter how they are treated when alive, they all experience the same fear when it comes to slaughter. The good news The good news is there IS something we can do about it. Every time we shop or order food in a restaurant – every time we eat – we can choose to help these animals. Every time we make the switch from an animal product to a vegan one we are standing up for farmed animals everywhere. Going vegan is easier than ever before with veganism becoming increasingly mainstream as more and more people from all walks of life discover the benefits of living this way.

How does one come to yoga? 

More than a decade ago I was drifting through life, looking for a simple meaning — taking a position in the antiquities trade, working in the movie production business and establishing my own retail clothing business.
I found these pursuits challenging and interesting but not personally fulfilling. 

I came to yoga looking for stress relief and a different way to exercise. As I proceeded with the initial classes I became enlightened to the truth of this discipline, what it could provide for me — and in the same way I found it — what it might give to others. 
I began to understand that life, without a strong component of service to others, is not fully lived. 

Yoga is not only a spiritual journey but also rooted in the physiological state of the body itself. Its practice involves both spiritual and physical considerations. 
Anyone wishing to study yoga as an instructor must understand both of these things. 

To be certified as a yoga instructor via a governing body such as “Yoga Alliance” requires years of rigorous study, involving both the spiritual and physical aspects of the body. 
I hold that certification in both English and Thai. 
The study of yoga is never-ending. I continually participate in seminars, workshops and gatherings of yoga teachers and masters to refine my understanding and skills. 

In my teaching and practice, I consider all three disciplines — spiritual, mental and physical. 

Namaste, Nok

Keep in Mind

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of the Universe. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
