One day I want to see the elephants in Thailand finally have a real home. I want to see them living in freedom – elegantly — in their own kingdom."

Founder of the Elephant Nature Park

One of the most stunning ceremonies in Thailand is called Loy Krathong, a Festival of Light, held on the full moon of November. You'll clear out the old and beginning anew by

Thailand is also home to the Asian elephant, Earth keepers who carry the heartbeat and the ancient wisdom of the planet. 

And, as with all our adventures, there will be so many experiences and surprises like:

  • relaxing in the seaside village we call “home” Ban Krut
  • “paying it forward” with humanitarian work at our rural Burmese refugee village schools 
  • Being of Service at our favorite Temple

Here you will meet your "soul family" and be welcomed into the opening circle. You will set your intention for the adventure and hear the messages from the Buddha as channeled through Marilyn & Adironnda

Explore Wat Suan Dok and the Night Bazaar
This morning you will visit  Wat Suan Dok for “Monk chat.” In this small temple they teach meditation and the Buddhist Dharma.

Complete with Q & A.

In the evening, you'll visit the Night Bazaar for shoppig, a few blocks from the hotel. It's filled with handcrafts and beautiful art 
Visit a 600 Year Old Temple, a Jade Factory, and Participate in the Festival of Light
Today you will visit the 600 year old temple of Wat Pra That Doi Suthep, the landmark of Chiang Mai located near the summit of Doi Suthep. After a drive up the mountain's winding road, the final climb to the site is via a magnificent dragon-headed serpent staircase of 306 steps. Inside is an intriguing copper-plated chedi topped by a five-tier gold umbrella which contains partial relics of Lord Buddha. (No worries for non-steppers, there is also an elevator.)

Next, you will stop in at the Jade Factory. You will see some of the most beautifully carved Burmese jade. Each piece is a work of art honoring the delicate nature of this gentle land..

That night, you will participate in the breathtaking Loi Kathrong Festival, The Festival of Light, where you will release a lit lantern into the sky. After the festival you can visit the Night Bazaar once again.

DAY 5:    NOV 5

Depart for the Elephant Nature Park
Today, visit and volunteer at Elephant Nature Park for 3 days, with founder Lek Chailert. Though the Asian elephant is revered in Thailand, they also are often abused. Lek has dedicated her life to not only protecting the elephants but also to educating the local people that training can be done through humane and kind practices.

You will have a chance to feed the elephants, get in the river and bathe them, learn about the Asian elephant and why these gentle giants require protection.

Oh, did I mention that we have four babies?! There is nothing like a baby elephant!
Sleep with the Elephants
So to speak... This will be our second day at ENP, now visited by thousands of international travelers every year who opt for seeing a positive conservation project successfully at work, rather than riding these magnificent beings and watching them put on an artificial tourist show.

We have known and loved Lek, the founder, for 16 years and always do everything we can to support her work. She was voted Time Magazine’s Hero of Asia several years ago and also received Hollywood’s Genesis Award for animal activism. She and the eles have been featured in countless international documentaries.

And yes, the Elephants will awaken you with their trumpeting just a few feet from your well-protected cabin.

Today, give back at Ban-Nong-Maka Primary School. Many of the children are Burmese refugees. This school has a budget of under $1,000 a year to care for all of their children and they seldom sees the English speaking tourist. The Thai teachers must teach all subjects including English, which is usually lacking. This little, precious school will be our site for service. Your heart will open with these children in appreciation for their eagerness to learn.

You will bring school supplies, bags of rice, and interact with the children through games, songs and whatever we can dream up.

As difficult as it is, always, to say good-bye, our adventure in Thailand ends here. Though the memories go on forever. We will eat an early dinner, together before saying our final good-byes and transfering to the airport for the international flight home. Feel free to stay a day or 2 to enjoy more of Bangkok.

sending love and blessings to all of life. 

First, you'll travel North to Chiang Mai, the cultural center of Thailand. You'll receive a Krathong, a floating offering of flowers and candles, and with the locals, you'll “let go” as thousands of Krathongs float away down the Mae Ping River. Spectacular beyond words.

The Asian elephant is majestic, social, incredibly intelligent and loyal. Up close to these gentle giants is a gift of a lifetime. You will spend three days at our favorite elephant sanctuary, a conservation project that we have supported and worked with for over 15 years. And, there is nothing like a baby elephant! In feeding, bathing and touching the elephants you will receive a connection to your own inner messages from these wondrous beings.

Juelle Wilkins
Our Thailand Ambassador,


When my husband took me on a trip with Marilyn and Adironnda, I was suicidal. I beleive it was my husband's last attempt at keeping me here. Through the work of Adironnda and Marilyn, I experienced such major shifts during the retreat, now here I am, twelve years later, still choosing to live, having my depression healed and removed."

~ D, New Hampshire,
Adironnda Retreat Participant


I LOVED it, I learned just how Unique I am and that is a good thing!” 

~ P, Florida
 Adironnda Retreat Participant


Adironnda treats me like a spiritual adult.  They don't play and laugh with me so much, as they honor my own deep desire for knowledge and wisdom...and they lead me there, whether I like it or not, at the time.  I feel there is a no nonsense approach with me...they have high expectations of me … Sometimes I get frustrated ...but that leads me inside to my own truth...which is exactly where they want me to go.  They are insisting that I think more of myself and honor my own inner Wisdom, and quit pussy footing around with worrying that my path seems so different from everyone else’s."

~ M, Texas
Adironnda Retreat Participant


After meeting you, I was absolutely energized and uplifted. You (Marilyn) and Adironnda, and of course - Jesus... were amazing and wonderful.” 

~ K, Colorado
Adironnda Retreat Participant


“I like to see the look in peoples’ eyes as they are the explorers of today’s world, gaining an expanded world view and seeing how wonderful the people of other countries can be.”

Donnovan Wilkins
Our Thailand Ambassador


“It's so fascinating when we begin to discover our true essence by simply stepping into a spiritual journey. Somehow, our Soul Family is everyone on that adventure with us - amazing!”
