Hi, My name is Erik and i am 23 years old. 
I come from Denmark. 
I am looking for a monastery where i can stay under my healing process. 
I have been in a extreme pain for many years, and i found my healing throug meditation and yoga. 
Described in short terms, has my body been in pain because i in my mind my hole life has been in a constantly state of fear, and my body has reacted by a freeze condition. 
To come through this, i have to get stronger, live the right way and be diciplined. 
That is why i am now looking for a monestary in Asia or europe to stay for about 7-8 months.  
Doe to the corona virus it has been very difficult to find any monestary's. 
There fore i am very open to any opourtunity. 
I will off course be Vacinated befoer travel.
I hope you can help me, 
best regards

Hi Erik,

I am afraid that until the pandemic is declared over you will have a difficult time finding a monastery to accept a foreign visitor. As an example, right now Thailand is allowing limited entry for travel and other purposes, but you would need to complete an expensive 14-day quarantine in an Alternative State Quarantine hotel when you arrive. Travel between provinces is also restricted.

If you are looking for a good entry level meditation program, Wat Suan Mokkh in Surat Thani Province, Thailand offers 10-day beginning level retreats each month. This is a popular program and very affordable. You could complete the beginning retreat then get an idea from the instructors of where you can go next to continue your journey. Unfortunately, the retreats are cancelled until further notice due to the pandemic.

You will find their English-language information at: http://www.suanmokkh-idh.org/ 

Good luck with your journey. For now, however, I suspect the best you can do is find online meditation resources or join Zoom style classes and instruction. Best wishes.

Tawang Monastery is best for you, try to visit there and take meditation and yoga.
