Regarding meals, there is one full meal per day, a brunch.

Lead Trainer: Nishan Disanayake

Nishan was born into a Theravada Buddhist family in Sri Lanka and has practised meditation for over 20 years, (since he was 16). He gained most of his experience and learnt meditation in monasteries, meditation groups and self-study.

Nishan began teaching meditation informally in 2004 at a local primary school, then at a temple. After that, he set up a weekly group at his home. At the moment, he works in Thailand teaching at various healing centres, at Yoga Teacher Training Centres and also does private one-to-one classes.

He has practised many types of Theravada Buddhist meditations, mainly concentrating on Metta (Unconditional love) and Vipassana (Insight). Through his practice of inner awareness he has nurtured an ability to be aware of the mental states of other people as well, this enables him to help people to recognise and heal their own emotional pains.


Here are some reviews about Nishan’s trainings. All the content from the workshops reviewed here is also included in this Meditation Teacher Training. (See all reviews at )

“Nishan completely changed my LIFE. When you’re in his presence, you feel amplified vibrations of love, compassion, support, gratitude for now and non judgement. He made me grounded. Through Nishan’s metta (love) practice, I also saw my anxiety massively reduce and I experienced the most sensational feelings of joy!” – Jasmine Hayer

“Nishan makes it possible to be vulnerable and go through the process of whatever emotions might come up. He will make you feel safe as well as surrounded by a warm and caring energy.” – Celine Pauly

“I loved today meditation. It triggered in me an overwhelming positive feeling. Thank you Nishan. It’s better than magic” – Robert Bo

“Nishan embodies the word psychological safety .. His truly friendly eyes led me to a place were my mind could rest and I could rely on Nishans calmness and his presence” – Philip Alenbrad

“If something in you has been called to Nishan’s healing or workshop, trust it. You are being divinely guided into an experience that will touch the depths of your being in profound, loving and insightful ways.” – Kelly Brown

“I attended one of Nishan’s meditation classes, and honestly I feel like I owe so much to him he helped me a lot, he asked me go deep into myself and face the emotions I was keeping inside of me. He taught me a valuable life lesson that I carry around with me one a day to day basis, he taught me to embrace the feelings i feel and that it won’t least forever and just let it run it cause. Nishan is a beautiful soul and helped me see the light! I’m very grateful to have met him.” – Jess Wong

“I’ve had a lot of difficulty putting my experience[s] with Nishan into words, as there are forces and energies at work that I wish to allow without limiting their potential. Nishan’s dedicated practices allow him to be a very clear and pure channel, guiding and directing energy to flow in a way that clears, restores, and vitalizes. If you’ve somehow happened upon my statement, it is not without reason.
I highly recommend a class, workshop, session, or simply a conversation to see what comes up. Nishan is a lightworker, a kind and bright human, and there is much to be learned from him.” – Connie Ng

  1. Beverley Wright

    I have been so moved by the teachings of meditation that what I have learnt, I will remember for the rest of my life and use it to help others. The training has opened my heart to meditation and healing and I will always be grateful. I have experienced so much trauma in my life but not known how to release the pain and connect with my feelings. Finally now I am letting go and full of happiness for my life. A moving experience and provides a good foundation and guided knowledge of meditation. I would definitely recommend and the location is just beautiful thank you ??
