WE ARE STILL CLOSED, BUT...

Due to the Covid19 Emergency, The Baan Hom Samunphrai School has been closed since March 18th, 2020.

But we are looking forward to opening again as soon as the Thai Government feels it is safe for us to do so. Thai airports are tentatively set to reopen on June 30th, and we are hoping to open some classes again as early as August.

We are now accepting Reservations in all our remaining 2020 classes, some of which are already listed as having  Limited Places -- that means 8 or more students have already signed up. So don't delay!

If you are interested please read the letter below. And of course do get in touch with your questions.
 

   

June 7th, 2020

OPEN LETTER TO INTERESTED STUDENTS:

Dear New Students and Those Who Already Have Reservations:

We are not requiring Deposits at this point because it is still uncertain when Thailand will reopen -- and, of course, when your own government will permit you to come!

We are now accepting RESERVATIONS BY E-MAIL, and promise to honor them when we are allowed to open.

Students who already have deposits are guaranteed places. If any of you would like to change your reservation to another date, please let us know as soon as possible.

 We are hoping that all will be well by August 2020, and are excited that our future courses are filling up with people who believe that too. Fortunately, Thailand managed the Covid19 crisis very well from the start and as a result has been lightly hit by the virus. Indeed, as far as we know we have had no cases at all in our area.

If you are seriously interested you should now:

1.) Make a Reservation by E-mail;

2.) Book your flights. (Some airlines are offering  reservations with full refunds in the event of cancellations. That means your investment will be quite safe, and you may be able to get a special reduced price as well.)

 How we hope we'll see you soon!

60hr WOMBLIFTING, POSTPARTUM CARE & RELATED HERBAL THERAPIES  (Live-in: 9 study days + 1 day off = 20,900 baht. Non-live-in:  9 study days = 14,400 baht

One of Homprang's most intense courses, students must be prepared to concentrate every minute during the hours in class and then practice, practice, practice. Includes both intricate acupressure work and abdominal manipulation as well as herbal compresses, traditional steam treatments, postpartum care for mother and baby, and herbal preparations as they are needed.

This course is often taken more than once by students who would actually like to practice Womblifting professionally as a single course is rarely enough. The course is also of great interest to professional midwives and doulas from all over the world.

Sept. 25th to Oct. 7th, 2020

80hr THAI MASSAGE COURSE  (Live-in: 12 study days + 1 day off = 27,400 baht. Non-live-in:  12 study days = 14,200 baht)

Topic: Thai Traditional Massage (Nuad Boran) and Rasidaton (Thai Yoga). This course concentrates on the classic two hour Thai Massage: legs, arms, side, prone and sitting positions. Because technique with fluency is the focus,  the stomach, face, and head are less the focus than the simple grace of touch and flow over the whole body, the latter being far more difficult to acquire than any of the technical parts.

Hardworking beginners can get started on the full Thai Massage 'set' in this course, while professionals can improve their technique, refine their touch, and learn how to look after both themselves and their clients even better -- a very slight adjustment to the therapists position, for example, can add years to his or her professional life. Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) is included in all of Homprang's courses, but it's particularly important in this one.

Serious beginners who want to do more than just "get started" in one visit to Thailand should consider taking the following course as well. Do ask about that if your interested.

150hr THAI MASSAGE COURSE   (Live-in:  22 study days + 3 days off = 51,700 baht. Non-live-in: 22 study days = 35,200 baht.)

At the beginning  this course concentrates on the fundamental parts of the Thai Traditional Massage, the legs, arms and trunk along with the different positions.  The second half of the course introduces the energy points and sen lines, and moves on to the shoulders, head and abdomen.  There is a written as well as a practical exam at the end.

Suitable both for beginners and advanced students, Homprang is assisted by her much loved sister-in-law, Ajarn Bang, as well as by a professional Intern, so everybody gets the practical attention they need at their own level.  A very intense course, there is a great deal to master by participants at all levels,  and everybody is encouraged to practice out of class in the evenings and on days-off. 

An added perk is that the ancient Loi Kratong Festival will be held on November 1st this year, and everybody will get to make their own banana-leaf floats to float away  their sins on the river with flowers, candles, and incense. And fireworks galore!

Nov. 28th  to Dec, 4th,  2020

A 40hr HERBAL WORKSHOP including 'FOOD AS MEDICINE'  (Live-in: 6 study days + 1 day off = 14,300 baht. Non-live-in:  6 study days = 9,600 baht)

By popular demand, Homprang is offering this course twice in 2020. You can click on the title of the course for more information on Homprang's herbal work in general and can also have a look at the section of Related Photos on the Homepage. In addition there is  a Sample Program from a workshop Homprang gave two years ago-- it was  written in collaboration with her Bhutanese intern, Jamtsho Sonam, who has a strong background in Plant Medicine.

Students must remember that  Homprang is a traditional  doctor, mid-wife & herbalist, and has no academic background to distract her. That is why no two classes of hers are ever the same, and why her work is always so fresh and relevant. That is also why so many of her students sign up for some of her courses two or even three times!

The exact content of  the course will be determined  not by a formal syllabus but by the season, the climate, social as well as natural, and above all by the interests of the specific group. So if you have special interests, please do let Homprang know what they are.

Each day will begin with a session of Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) at 7am followed by herbal work, study,  talk, and visits here and there in Chiang Mai from 9am to 4pm. There is then a herbal steam bath at 6pm followed by a delicious Thai meal at 7pm -- and if you are very lucky Homprang will be there to talk you through it!

Jan. 4th to 28th, 2021

150hr SPECIAL THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE COURSE (Live-in:  22 study days + 3 days off = 51,700 baht. Non-live-in: 22 study days = 35,200 baht.)

The Special Therapeutic Course introduces cutting-edge acupressure techniques that are used to treat serious conditions including migraine, numbness, stroke damage, intractable back conditions, and many other ailments not usually addressed by Thai Massage. A background in Thai Massage is very helpful but not essential. Indeed, the course is  open to any Professional Therapist with a strong background in energy work like Shiatsu, for example. Indeed, the most important qualification is substantial, hands-on experience of working with serious conditions over a number of years, and a desire to go further in alleviating the suffering of those who carry them.

If you are still not sure if this course is appropriate for you, please do e-mail us with your questions, and of course tell us a bit about yourself and your professional background so that we can help you make the right decision.

The treatments in this course are evolving all the time, and many advanced students and professional therapists choose to take it more than once. The exchange with such students is also extremely important to Homprang, as she regards the class as a Lab as much as a Training Ground.

Buttons will go up about 6 months in advance. Let us know before then and we'll pencil you in.

SPIRIT WINDS 80hr THAI MASSAGE COURSE  (Live-in: 12 study days + 1 day off = 27,400 baht. Non-live-in:  12 study days = 14,200 baht)

Because technique with fluency is the focus,  the stomach, face, and head are less the focus than the simple grace of touch and flow over the whole body, the latter being far more difficult to acquire than any of the technical parts.

Hardworking beginners can learn the full Thai Massage 'set' in this course, while professionals can reassess their technique, refine their touch, and learn how to look after both themselves and their clients even better -- a very slight adjustment to the therapists position, for example, can add years to his or her professional life as well as deepen the effectiveness of all their body work.

Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) is included in all of Homprang's courses, but it's particularly important in this one.  One hour everyday at 7am.

                   Course Fees

Live-In Students are charged Bt 2200 per day -- this includes a room of your own with 3 meals a day, 1 hour of Thai yoga plus 6 hrs of teaching, herbal steam baths after class, one of our four Training Notebooks, bicycles, internet, airport pickups and transportation into town when you need it.

Surcharges & Discounts. If you are willing to share our dorm (2 to 5 persons), the charge is a little less: Bt 2100 per day. If you prefer a private room with a shower and toilet of your own the charge will be a little more: Bt 2300 per day. We have only 4 rooms with private bathrooms so do tell us ahead of time if you are interested in this option -- the final decision will be made according to need. If you are lucky and we just put you in one of those rooms there is no extra charge.

The Live-in Student Rate is a special, all-inclusive charge, and there is no refund for meals missed on Study Days for Students or for their partners. This not only helps us to keep our student fees as low as we possibly can but to maintain our level of concentration.

The ordinary live-in charge for Days-off & Extra Days is Bt 1100 for a private room with a shared bathroom.  If you have opted for our dorm, the extra-day charge is only Bt 1000; if you have a private room with a private bathroom the charge is Bt 1200.

For Live-in Students and their partners, the perks continue on Days-off, including free steam baths, and many students decide just to stay home to practice and relax. If you decide to go off and do something adventurous on a Day-off there can be a  refund for missed meals, but you must tell us by 9am for lunch (Bt 100) and 1pm for dinner (Bt 150)

Non-live-in students are charged at Bt 1600 per day. The fee includes the whole day from 7am to 7 pm -- the Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) at 7am, breakfast at 8am, the class from 9am to 4pm with lunch at noon, one of our four Training Notebooks, and a herbal steam bath after class. Transportation, on the other hand,  is not included.

Homprang hopes very much that non-live-in students will join the Rasidaton at 7am, which is why the non-live-in fee includes breakfast at 8am as well as lunch. And the steam baths are hot for all about 6.00 pm everyday.

 

   FAQs About Course Registration

DEPOSITS. Our classes are closed at 12 and often fully booked. For this reason we must ask for a 25% Deposit to reserve a place, insuring that nobody is turned away when there is still space remaining. We refund deposits but only if a cancelled place can be filled again before the beginning of the class. Indeed, we keep a Waiting List just for this purpose. On the other hand, cancellations happen rarely. and refunds can take some time as the enrollment sorts itself out.

You should click on the PayPal Button in the right hand column above to pay the deposit -- (the Logo is in Thai but the instructions are in English). The Deposit includes a +/- 4% fee to cover the PayPal Transfer and Currency Conversion charges. To pay with your credit card you must first click on the PayPal Button and then click on Pay with my credit or debit card at the bottom of the PayPal pop-up window. Otherwise you must have a PayPal account of your own.

SETTING UP A PAYPAL ACCOUNT OF YOUR OWN. If you have a PayPal account of your own you can  make the payment without using the Button -- ask us for instructions before you choose this option.  We credit students for whatever sum arrives in our account, so nothing is ever lost, for you or for us. Indeed, more and more students are using this option to pay their final bill as well.

FULL PAYMENT  The rest of your student fees should be paid by the end of the first week of the course. If you are paying by PayPal you must have opened an account of your own before you come to Thailand, otherwise you may find you are unable to use PayPal. As an alternative we would suggest you arrange with your home bank to use your ordinary ATM card while you are here, which is quick, safe, and probably the cheapest way to obtain cash in Thailand. But you must inform your bank beforehand or they will assume your card has been stolen.

LIVE-IN STUDENTS. Most of our students live here with us -- the place is beautiful. the food delicious, the company good, and above all the students get to spend a whole lot more time with Homprang and her family. Traditional medicine differs widely from region to region all over the world, and those differences have arisen not out of ignorance but out of the enormous variety in the cultural patterns, religious beliefs, family structures, diets, and climates of each region. We strongly recommend you immerse yourself in this training as deeply as you can by living here with us, and in the end we're cheaper than living in a guesthouse in town anyway.

REFUNDS FOR MISSED MEALS. A refund for a missed lunch or dinner can be claimed by those who are here as Room & Board Guests and by Students on their Days-off, but you must tell us by 9.00am for a lunch (100 baht) and 1.00pm for a dinner (150 baht). There is no refund for students on Study-Days as the Live-in Student rate is already a reduced fee.

NON-LIVE-IN STUDENTS Of course we understand that some students already have a place of their own in Chiang Mai and/or a significant-other who works in town, or whatever.  And we'll look after you well anyway, don't worry. (Non-live-in students must pay the same deposit as live-in students, but, everybody is credited for the whole sum that we receive on their final bill, so nothing is wasted or lost.)

WHEN TO ARRIVE & DEPART. Most live-in students arrive the day before the class begins because the Rasidaton (Thai Yoga) is at 7am on the first morning. If you arrive the day before the class begins, your dinner and bed for that night will be considered as part of your first day of class, which means your course fee covers you through to the end of  the last day of class (plus one final steam bath if you wish). You are welcome to arrive even earlier than the day before and can also stay on after the class finishes. Needless to say there is a charge for extra nights and meals.
