Thabarwa Meditation Center
“Thabarwa Center is a non-profit humanitarian organization that serves a sanctuary for persons from all regions of Myanmar who seek refuge for care and attention and desire to practice meditation.
The center provides food, lodging and teaching for more than 2,400 yogis (as of February 2014) including aged persons, sick, infirm, blind, deaf, disabled, mental cases, homeless and helpless. Sanctuary is provided without discrimination or restriction as to number, time, age, health condition, nationality, social status, religion, etc."
I spent only one week volunteering at Thabarwa and the experience has changed me forever. It was incredibly eye-opening to be a part of a community founded on selfless service.
