The Mekhala Health Retreat
The Mekhala Health Retreat spans 3 acres on the peaceful and lush slopes of Doi Suthep, one of Chiang Mai’s famous landmarks. Boasting two beautiful houses, private bungalows and full health/spa facilities, it was founded by Dr. Brian Bauerle, a psychoanalyst for 30 years and former Buddhist monk in India, Nepal, Tibet and Thailand, and his wife, Jang Bauerle. Catering to an exclusive clientele, the retreat is a transformational programme that inspires mindfulness and conscious choices for well-being. Dr. Bauerle and Jang, along with other facilitators, take clients through the holistic programme that focuses on individual wellness, supported by education, mindful awareness, a healthy diet and meditation.
Aside from transforming the lives of clients, the retreat also supports the White Peacock Project, which funds the Schools of Hope on the Thai/Burmese border.
