Awaken CHANGe

Sawadeekah! Greetings from Thailand!

Our Bowls for Elephants project has expanded into “Awaken CHANGe” - chang is the Thai word for elephant. This project not only benefits the elephants, but we have found that it also benefits you.

Our next trip is set for May 20th - 30th, 2019. Will you join us?

Working some singing bowl magic!

   Experience 10 incredible nights in Chiang Mai, Thailand that will surely be the trip of a lifetime!

Our home away from home will be The Chaya Hotel, which offers an intimate experience with unique Thai customs. 
The property is full of history and Thai tradition,
and full of friends who pay special attention
to us and the details surrounding our trip.

During our time together, we will share cultural dinners, a sound healing workshop, three full days working with our elephant friends, Thai cooking class, Indigo tie-dyeing at a local cotton farm, night markets, Thai silk factories, visits to temples and so much more. Each of our travelers will receive their own singing bowl to work with the elephants at Patara Elephant Farm!



One of our favorite things about our time in Thailand is the incredible food! From our shared meals at some of our treasured local restaurants, to Thai cooking school, and street food at the night market, enjoying the flavors of Thai dishes is truly one of the many things we are looking forward to sharing with you.

An incredible bonus to our time together are the connections with not only your new elephant friends, but also your travel companions, and each person we meet along the way. The people in Thailand are warm and genuinely happy to meet you. You can be sure the kindness will travel home with you, and you will have some new friends for life.

The lush vegetation of the land is simply the starting point to the eye candy that Thailand has to offer. Starting with the orange silk that the monks adorn, to the colors and textures of the goods found at the night market, your journey through Chiang Mai will be full of delightful sights.
