The Teacher

Dorien Israel

Yoga Practice and Personal TransformationDorien started practicing Ashtanga yoga with Paul at the young age of 60. She spends most of the year on Koh Samui and spends her time as a retreat advisor to our guests. Most people have never been on a "retreat" so having Dorien to give personal guidance is a great support. She also teaches other non-yoga related classes such as Qi Gong.She is the author of three books; UnBound, Tao Passages and The Way to the One I AM. She is a Reiki Master, Yoga teacher and Qi Gong practitioner.In 1984 after a "near death" experience resulting from a severe automobile accident Dorien discovered she was given the ability to access ascended information (channeling or direct revelation).In 1997 Dorien came to Koh Samui on a one week vacation and never left. During that week she had a "transcendent experience" (satori). Now at the age of 65 she is a remarkable reflection of what is possible in body, mind and Being when one aligns their life with their highest values and real identity.For more on Dorien:

Dear Dorien, As I researched yoga retreat sites from all over the world for countless hours, Samahita Retreat kept coming back to me as a destination option. The One-to-One Personal Retreat really called and inspired me. Due to the fact that my time as limited to a one week retreat, I really wanted to maximize my time. Not that group settings cannot be impacting, I really was attracted to the One-to-One time for this particular journey. It just seemed right. Once word returned that you were available to meet, the confirmation within my body was immediate. The results totally surpassed my expectations. Our daily conversations were poignant, enriching, engaging, and empowering. You have a wonderful gift to focus, center and deliver a targeted message that comes from an other-worldly place. I loved that even though there was a loose outline of topics to cover, that we could stay on the prescribed course or go off on an appropriate tangent. It made our time together real and personal and not contrived. Your robust energy flows from you in generous waves drowning those in your presence. Your capacity to teach, share, laugh and love were infectious. More than anything, I absorbed takeaway spiritual and life skills that I can now use to uplift and support my future growth. The week was an opportunity to reboot my life. I return to my real world a new person – revived, fresh, and outfitted with energy that will continue to guide and support the next stage of life. My gratitude runneth over. Thank you from the crevasses of my open and gleeful heart.
