  1. Hi Ben,
    Had all intentions of coming and last minute we changed our exam schedule to better accomodate the students which resulted in altering mine. Anyways, please let me know if you have any other events. good luck
    Thinking of spending the summer in Thailand, any suggestions?

  2. Hi Jenise
    That’s too bad you can’t make it! We are hoping to have a retreat each month until it gets too cold so I will let you know when the next one is scheduled.
    You should head down to some of the islands such as Koh Phangan. If you want to do some trekking, etc then Chiang Mai is a good base. Also some of the towns north of Chiang Mai such as Pai are worth spending some time in!!
