How do we access our own deep presence, move from inner apology to inner authority, and thus make the biggest difference in our lives and in the world?

How do we move from performance to expression, from held breath to exhale, from informing to inspiring, and stay relaxed and confident and rooted in our bodies, when talking one-on-one with others, or speaking in front of groups?

Using dyads, small and whole-group activities, this experiential full-day will provide fun and active ways for you to grow in inner authority while connecting authentically with others.


Transform your work


• inner apology to inner authority;

• performance to expression;

• information to inspiration;

• “paint-by-numbers” to true artistry.

Getting to Koh Phangan Island


 BY BUS & BOAT                                           BY PLANE & BOAT

From Bangkok: the cheapest way is to take one of the overnight buses that leave Khaosan Road evening about 18.00 and arrives the next morning in Surathani, then take a boat from Donsak Pier.

Bus and boat combo tickets can be arranged by travel agencies on Khaosan Road for about 700-900 Baht all the way to Koh Phangan.


Taking the overnight train from Bangkok with a proper bed is also a comfortable way to get Koh Phangan. Trains stop early morning at Surathani,  buy bus and boat ticket to Koh Phangan Island. Train tickets from Surathani back to Bangkok should be reserved in advance specially in high season.

 The cheapest option is to fly from Bangkok (BKK) to Surathani Airport (URT) with AirAsia.

Transportation to the ferry pier is easy to find at Surathani airport.

Ferries depart several times a day with the last one around 17.30.

Travel time: 1-hour flight from Bangkok to Surathani airport. Then is 1.5-hour bus ride to the boat pier and depending on what boat company you take the boat to Koh Phangan is between 1.5 hours (Lompraya)  -2.5 hours (Raja fairy).

Flying to Koh Samui is convenient, yet more expensive, you may check the rates for yourself. Koh- Samui Airport (USM) has frequent flights from Bangkok (BKK) with Bangkok airways. 

Travel time 1-hour flight and 30 minutes boat ride from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan.
