Many blessing to you all, our Home of soul healing needs your help.
Please read about our story.
My name is Naiyana Thongmanee, 3 years ago I created an Eco-Healing center named Wimarn Fah of Yardfahmadin nestled in the lush mountains of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
In order to serve others pass through past trauma and pains, I have been consistently hosting international retreats for regular people, healers, teachers and students all alike.
Unfortunately, we have been severely hit by 3 flash floods in 2 months that destroyed most of our guest structures, our bridge, the meditation space, the two bungalows we had built for the students and the entire ground floor of the main area and our beloved kitchen where we cook all of our delicious organic meals.
I am not giving up of what I have to share to others. With your support we wish to start rebuilding and make it weather proof adaptable to all seasons we experienced for the past few years here.
Below are some pictures taken randomly around the property after the flood.

What We Need & Estimated Costs:
We will need to build a new roof for my five bungalows, change the bamboo structure and elevate the bungalows higher from the ground so in the eventuality of another flood the water will be flowing under. We will treat the bamboo for the weather wearing and also purchase new table and chairs. We calculated with the cost of the labour, electricity water and rent for the next 10 months a budget of 10,000 usd.
It will be the unique space to get too with a river to cross and a jungle surrounding the property. It will also be a non digital place with limited coverage here so busy city life worker will find peace all along.
In the event of not reaching the entire amount desired, the money will be used to renovate what we can with it.
How soon do we need the funds? And other ways we need help.
We need the funds immediately to start the rebuilding process.
Some other ways you can help us is to pray and if possible we can take volunteers or specialists to provide specialized services or labor to help in the rebuilding process. Your prayers are always welcomed.
For your contribution I will offer my services, soul healing, online guided meditation, and online retreat, I also make my own organic herbal tea from the plants we have here in our land. You are free to ask and receive my services in gratitude and appreciation for helping us raise funds and spread the word on social media and to your email lists.
Who I am and what I do?
I was born into traditional eastern shamanism and a Buddhist family, but I was raised between eastern and western societies. I started to live my authentic life since the year 2014 out in the forest in the north of Thailand. During this time I have awaken the gift within me, witnessing myself grow spiritually, finding peace and clarity of what life is.
Since I was young, I always felt that I was born for a bigger purpose in life. At that time, I still wasn’t sure what it was. I could only dream about my life purpose. Maybe it was only an illusion! The life I had in the corporate world and my unhappy household didn’t serve the calling that I have always felt. It didn't matter how successful I might have been in my work, family and social life. Nothing seemed to fulfill me. So the search began. I turned down jobs and overruled my family to pursue what we call spirituality!
Leading a conscious, healthy lifestyle is important to me. I never underestimate the impact that the psyche can have on a person's physical well-being. If we're going to get through this life in one piece, we need to take care of ourselves beyond the typical nutrition and exercise. I found the Light of internal peace and clarity.
I believe that we can always bounce back from what knocks us down and come back and be stronger than before. We are capable of reprogramming our mind in the ways we see, feel, listen and get to our inner truth.
I have learned to live harmonically between our physical nature and in the myths of the unseen world with my love, light and kindness.
My healing center will be one stop for local people and travelers to practice mindfulness, meditation, learning and sharing ideas.
So I will adapt and re-orientate my activity for who is already here. I want to offer the Thai people, expats and anyone really, a place to be free to talk, meditate and escape from the busy city life to reconnect with the mother earth and themselves.
How your contribution will help
In this challenging time we need to become more human than ever, I am seeing everyday the technology taking over our lives. By creating the space for you and us together we connect again organically with the nature and the universe which create the balance between the two world ( the Tech and the Human ). I am a healer and a guide for those who come to me in their journey of finding peace within. Your contribution will allow me to continue the journey and share my understanding and knowledge for a more mindful society.
I held a space for silent retreats in the past for healers, teachers, students, business entrepreneurs, office workers, artists, musicians, writers, and anyone, of any age, who seek to master their life and their professions.
Some feedback from my students who came to stay at my space:
“I don't know how to describe this, but all I can say she is definitely a healer. I've spent money on many psychologists and doctors, but what she was able to do in just a day trumps all of that. Truly a remarkable experience.” Karyn
“Naiyana...is a piece of heaven. You can feel the beautiful energy...Her warmth, spirit and natural healing ability made this one of the most meaningful weeks in my life. ..Forever grateful. Love u Naiyana for giving me your selfless time and energy and showing me how to heal.” Yusuf
Why help me to rebuild this place ?
One of the main challenge is the maintenance of the property. I would like to keep every structure as natural as possible to create sustainable space without the use of permanent material which would become waste to the land. I use bamboo and it doesn't last long due to my limited resources to treat the material. The funds will allow me to treat the bamboo so it can last longer by protecting it from the weather, with treatment the bamboo could last for up to 5 years.
I have created this living style to set an example to all who come to me. I have been teaching/guiding for more than 5 years so I know the strengths and weaknesses of the bamboo structure and the challenges to keep the place running. I saw how the rain and the wind get in and how close the bush fire can get, and now I saw the river flooded.... I can say I have seen it all from all directions.
I will build a better roof and foundation for all bungalows and the Sala. I will lift the floor higher to let the water from the river run its course under and safely.
Living among the nature is also believing in the force of nature, I will not be able to prevent all natural disasters 100 percent but we can prepare and protect the best we can....
With love and kindness...
Thank you all!
