Mark’s Journey To Find His True Self

A heartful testimonial from Karin about her stay with us on the farm where she feels safe and comfortable while gaining an inner experience to be more in contact with herself.

She captures the farm’s community vibe, with everyone looking for a healing environment that includes a lot of detoxing, emotional release, and learning how to self-heal.

Karin joined us at the farm for a one-week retreat and she also added on a private session package on 10 sessions, where she did 2 private sessions per day for 5 days. We are thankful for her trust to make us be part of her journey.

Dennis’s Daily Activities at The Farm

I just completed the Candida & Parasite Cleanse, which Living with the Spirit created. I began the program intending to mildly cleanse my body. I feel now much lighter and purer. I used to have bad cravings for sweets & junk food, but at the moment I have no desire to go back to them, and even after I completed the course I am still keeping my diet as clean as possible. The course is not only to purify your body but it helps you to transition into a completely new healthy lifestyle.


I was taking the herbal protocol together with a diet of mostly raw fruits and vegetables. The first week I had brown rice and steamed veggies but tried to stay as raw as possible after. I experienced some mild detox symptoms like a foggy head, lots of mucus being released from my body, and some fatigue. The Candida & Parasite Plan is easy and you have different dietary options that are all well explained, easy to follow and you could even do a water fast if you are up to it, to clean your body on a deeper level. Four weeks in and I have the energy I had when I was in my 20’s (now 40’s).


I am awake at the crack of dawn, have lots of power, and no longer feel that I am dragging myself through the day. Sara and Simba have been wonderful in explaining everything in detail in the four webinars that come with the program. They offer their full support and you can always get in touch with them if you have any additional questions or need their help. It has been a spiritually and mentally strengthening experience and a blessing in my journey of healthy living. I can highly recommend the program.

Candida & Parasite Cleanse Testimonial

I just completed 2 months of working remotely with Sara and Simba.  I am a completely different person than when I began!  I was suffering from extreme fatigue and chronic, debilitating pain. Within **2** weeks of the nutrition + detox program Sara put me on (high percentage raw food, mostly fruit + Dr. Morse tinctures), my energy was restored and my pain radically diminished. This was miraculous!  I attribute this to the healing power of the food and herbs, but perhaps even more to Sara’s absolute confidence in my capacity to heal which allowed my body to trust the process – to know that I could, and would, heal!  Everything Sara recommends she has done or is doing herself. She walks her talk every single step of the way. She is a Warrior of Healing. You want her in your court.


To support my transformation with Sara, Simba helped me with strength training, TRE & EFT.  Simba has a seemingly endless tool chest of incredibly effective modalities he has honed through his own practice that support the body in unwinding, healing and strengthening.  I would call him a  “Body Whisperer” because he creates a field of safety and unconditional acceptance that the body and psyche instantly recognize.  Like Sara, everything he transmits comes from his own embodied experience, and through his kind and loving heart.  Simba also did EFT with my 11yr old son, and it was absolutely amazing to see how my son responded to Simba and picked up on EFT, which he’s been practicing since.


Together, Sara and Simba create a Field of Transformation which awakens the Spirit to heal and team play with the Body.  They are completely, 100% committed to their own healing and evolution, and from that place, 100% committed to the healing and transformation of their clients.  In a world that is full of superficiality and sales, Sara and Simba are precious gems who live and serve genuinely from their Heart.  It is a blessing to work with them.

Breathwork Testimonial – Sebastians Experience

Living with the Spirit was a transformational experience and I will always be grateful for the grounded support that I received. Sara created a safe space where I felt nurtured and secure. She intuitively helped me along my detox and fasting journey, something I had never undertaken before, and had quit a bit of anxiety towards.

Experiencing that process while Simba helps you with your body is beyond healing. His expertise and techniques far surpass any bodyworker I’ve ever come across. Having been in several car accidents I have utilized physical therapy, chiropractic, massage therapists, reiki and any other form of rehabilitation I came across. Nothing compares the the relief from my chronic pain management than what I found at Living With the Spirit.

Detox Retreat – Read Dawns Testimonial

In this video our great friend and client Paula Shields shares about her journey throughout 2020, about her motorbike accident and her stay with us during the time that she was recovering from the injuries.

Paula had a motorbike accident on her way to work one day that resulted in an open compound fracture, four surgeries, having a metal cage in order to fixture the bones for a long period of time.

When she arrived at Living with The Spirit her leg was very swollen and discolored, this was the result of the injury and the urgent need for holistic healing.


Hear Paula share about her transformative journey with us, the way she perceived the accommodations, the services, the food and her entire experience and their results during her stay with us earlier this year.

Thank you Paula!

Paula – Post Surgery Retreat – Video Testimonial

I am extremely grateful to both Simba and Sarah for providing me with a safe and healthy space to work through some my personal troubles. I had been experiencing severe insomnia for around 6 months and signing up to their unique combination of spiritual healing and physiotherapy sessions was the best decision I made. Sarah was lovely to talk to and I instantly felt very comfortable in her presence.


Talking to Sarah enabled me to realise some childhood traumas that I had not allowed myself to acknowledge over the years. Through talking to her, and focusing on the weekly exercises that she assigned me, I was able to notice some of my unhealthy thoughts and learn how to improve my thought processes. While working on my mental health, I also engaged in some physiotherapy sessions with Simba. Alternating between counselling sessions and more physical sessions was perfect for me. It enabled me to realise that everything is connected – mind and body, and in order to properly heal, it is essential to recognise this link.


Simba was kind, compassionate and I also felt very comfortable in his presence. I enjoyed the Reiki session, but particularly benefitted from TRE as it helped me release tension that I had been unknowingly storing. After experiencing what I would consider to be the worst period in my life, I am pleased to say that my insomnia has gone completely. I know that this was heavily due to the tools and coping strategies that I learnt from my sessions with Simba and Sarah.


It has been 2 months now since my last session, and I continue to mediate and incorporate the mindfulness practices that they encouraged me to use. I particularly valued how Sarah and Simba incorporated Bhuddist philosophies into their work. I personally feel very aligned with this way of life and find strength in mediating on a daily basis. I am extremely grateful to these wonderful people and couldn’t recommend them more to anyone who is struggling with insomnia, depression, anxiety, eating disorders or poor physical health.


I recently left Thailand to focus on my studies, however I hope to return once I graduate. I will be sure to visit them again in their beautiful and welcoming home.


Thank you for your guidance and love,

Hanniah’s Testimonial – Working Through Insomnia

Working in the field of Behavioural Healthcare I often have the opportunity to engage with other professionals and providers in support of my clients. The team at Living with The Spirit in Chiang Mai are wonderfully creative and generative in their approach to supporting healing and wellbeing, which is why I was excited by the opportunity to work with them.


Sara and Simba, the owners of Living with The Spirit, consulted with my team at Rise (Asia’s first gender responsive trauma informed treatment program) to help develop innovative and responsive ways to support our clientele with their treatment experiences. They offered us a unique blend of body based holistic healing methods developed with understanding and appreciation of the specific environmental and psychological needs of our clients.


In addition to their consulting services, Living with The Spirit offer clients in a secondary stage of recovery a safe place to continue to work on integrating somatic and emotional experiences into their daily lives. Their premises, close to the centre of Chiang Mai have a residential component, allowing people to stay, be looked after with 24/7 care, and engage in bespoke individualised healing and wellbeing treatment plans for as long as needed. This phase of early recovery as a continuation to primary treatment services, can provide a significant contribution to ongoing success and recovery for clients in need of additional services.


I am delighted to have already had the opportunity to work with these healing professionals and look forward to further partnership in the future.
