modisoondarotok A sweet friend Heaven asked me to share the truth that I see in life. I went through series of illnesses, depression, business failure and tough life decisions for the past 3 years. I learned that life is truly in constant change like these ocean waves. Nothing stays the same. Contemplation practice is a practical tool that allows me to go beneath the waves. Where the water is clear and calm. The chaotic waves from above will always be choppy and in vast movements. But the deeper that I dive into the awareness. The sea gets more expansive, brighter, clearer and calmer. It is one truth that I can always put into a test. It is proven to me that the more I'd dive in deeper. The more I'm content with life. I'm passing the torch to my other wise truth seekers. @_mariannejacobsen_ @morisama @zuza_misko @lucers @tinaofsweden @ms_owens please no pressure to share. Thank you to lovely @heavenmcarthur for thinking of me to share #museontruth @theworldmuse Wishing you a happy Saturday from Koh Samui! 3d

modisoondarotok Happy holidays, everyone. May this finds you and your family happy and healthy. With love from Koh Samui. 1mon
  •   modisoondarotok @morisama happy holidays to you and adorable Leo! Frankie, Adelaide and me wishing you both a spectacular new year! We love you two. 1mon
  •   modisoondarotok @_mariannejacobsen_ thank you so much for your heartfelt wishes. Hope you and your family had a nice visit and yummy feast. The Thais would celebrate anything! But mostly exchange small gifts with friends and co-workers. Also malls would put up decor and organize an event for Christmas. More like a New Years combined celebration with Christmas. Not as special as in the west. Where families and friends get together for visits and feasts. My poor husband Brad is on his own this year. I think it is hard on us being apart for the holidays. But it is the difficult path that we chose. Hopefully things will work out with the meditation and wellness retreat on Samui. He could move over soon. Fingers crossed. It is so green here. It feels strange to be in the tropics during Christmas. 🌞 I spend the day at the beach and reflected on this year. It was a different kind of Christmas for sure. I'm so exited that you got snow. ️ It must look so beautiful. Hope you are having a wonderful time. All my love to you. 1mon

modisoondarotok After the rain this little beauty submerged. Stormy weather on the Samui island for few days. It is a treat to be watching tropical moody storms. Quite dramatic. But all the plants are uber green and the flowers are vibrant. They are enjoying the monsoon season. 1mon

modisoondarotok Reflecting on refuge in dhamma, in awareness, in learning to recognize that it is just this. Just this present moment. All conditions like emotions, memories, arise and cease. The Buddha's teaching and mindfulness practice gets us to recognize this natural state. Awareness isn't about being right but about being present, "just this". 1mon
  •   modisoondarotok @yncar thank you so much!! You are sweet. 1mon
  •   modisoondarotok @lorcanfinnegan it is a bit cloudy for the moment. But no rain. It was blue this morning. Then rain storm around noon. It has been dry for most of the day here at Koh Samui. I'm working at The Lipa resort on the island. If you can make it to Samui. I'll treat you to pineapple smoothies. Message me if you need help with anything. Enjoy Koh Lipe! Modi 1mon

modisoondarotok Thank you from the bottom of my heart sweet friends for your kind responses to the meditation and wellness retreat and to The Lipa Lovely Resort. Thank you also for your interest of joining me for the retreat and for the adventure on Samui. Your love and kindness touches my heart. This is the tropical green path entering The Lipa and to my mini bungalow. I'm flying back to coconut farm near Bangkok this week to study with my principal meditation teacher. Before jumping into the unknown of starting my own retreat in January. I'll be checking emails and IG messages periodically. Goodbye external world. Hello internal awareness. Wishing you a wonderful week. I'll be back on 13th December. Lots of love to all of you, beauties. 2mon

modisoondarotok Hello friends, Hope this finds you well and happy. After closing IDOM fashion label and its retail shop for almost 3 years ago. I decided to go back to school and study integrative nutrition. I moved back to Bangkok since last December. I also devoted my time studying Vipassana Meditation with Thai meditation master, Ajahn Oranuit of Dujit for 3 years.
I recently got my dream job as a meditation teacher and a wellness consultant at The Lipa Lovely Resort on Koh Samui in southern Thailand.
This is my second week living and working at The Lipa Lovely Resort. I'm also the girl who shoots the images for all the PR and social medias for this wonderful resort.
I'll be starting my own wellness retreat on teaching Theravada Forest Buddhist Meditation practice along with nutrition consultant in January of 2015. As I mentioned before I'm both Thai and American. Living in between two worlds and two cultures hasn't been easy. I constantly search for a place where I belonged. The search lead me to many parts of the world. The truth is my home is within me all along. The Vipassana insight meditation allows me to see things as they are and to discover a home from within. The retreat will also explore the holistic view of nutrition. We will offer healthy Thai cooking lessons as well as nutrition counseling. If you have food allergies or celiac disease or other autoimmune diseases like me. I would be happy to tailor the program for you. We can learn how to cook gluten free, sugar free or even grain free. I will be your support and your guide. We are also putting in an organic garden. So we can tend the garden and use the veggies for our cooking lessons. If you are interested please email me at ingredientsfortheheart@gmail.com or take a look at the website, http://ingredientsfortheheart.com.
Here is the spectacular view from The Lipa. It is a dreamy place for you to contemplate and to relax. Please join me for your own fun and sunny adventure on an island paradise. Looking forward to hear from you. Wishing all of you a beautiful week, Modi
