“I am inviting you to join me in creating the next step in changing the direction of mankind.” ~ Norman Brown

Imagine a place where you remember your magic and help others to remember theirs.

Inspired by John Lennon, Norman Brown has channeled his passion for creating a world of peace and love into Imagine Earth, an organization committed to building alternative study and retreat centers and creating connections globally.

Furthermore, Imagine Earth locations will provide for the local communities and countries, and collaborate with local governments and businesses to create employment opportunities and offer services at low or no cost to locals. The idea is for the host countries to see Imagine Earth as a resource and a partner to help them expand and grow.

Imagine Thailand Alternative Studies & Retreat Center is the first of many Imagine Earth locations to come as Norman weaves the philosophy of John Lennon into the retreat center and alternative studies programs, workshops, and classes.

Imagine Thailand Alternative Studies Center

Changing the world can mean many different things to different people. For some, it is simply a matter of changing themselves and using what they’ve learned to help others in their day-to-day lives.

For others, it is about teaching on a larger scale. To create a ripple effect of positive energy and creation that continues to grow and influence others the further it emanates from the source.

Imagine Thailand Alternative Studies offers progressive and diverse healing, spiritual, and ecological courses that teach skills to be applied in one’s life or developed into an occupation for those who desire to create further change. The courses and workshops offered cover a diverse portfolio of interests and subjects from Reiki, massage, healing herbs and oils, to how to build a sustainable home and grow a community or terrace garden of organic foods.

Classes are offered in residence (online courses coming soon) and complete support is provided to take what is learned in the classroom to real life application. It is our belief that together, we are a community supporting each other’s growth, making positive, impactful changes every day and in every way to help all of us remember our magic and live life in joy.

“Imagine all the people, Living life in peace…” ~ John Lennon

Imagine having freedom from what is holding you back so you can be and do everything you’ve ever wanted.

Imagine remembering your magic, and living life with joy again.

About Norman E. Brown

Norman E. Brown is an international speaker, spiritual teacher, business owner and life coach with decades of experience in coaching and guiding people through transformational phases in their lives. He is the founder of Monte Vista Retreat Center, in Koh Phangan, Thailand and he created the Life Transformation Course (LTC), a holistic program dedicated to awakening, healing and living a fulfilled and happy life.

Born in Iowa, he was raised by his Cherokee grandmother who passed on ancient wisdom about mankind and nature to her grandson. Elfie was always in service to others and she taught by example: her generosity and compassion naturally got the people around her to understand how they could live life in a way that was of a loving nature to themselves and everyone around them.

At the age of 27, Norman was introduced to meditation, which accelerated his spiritual progress and pointed him towards his teachers, such as Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Amritanandamayi Devi, Ramesh Balsekar, Sri Karunamayi. In 1994, while in the ashram of Amritanadamayi he had a profound spiritual revelation that lead to a total transformation of his own life. After spending time with spiritual teachers, he was drawn to fulfill a vision he had of building a retreat center in Thailand, Monte Vista Retreat Center. Here, he spent 12 years dedicated to helping thousands of others transform their lives.

Today, Norman has the vision of creating a momentous opportunity for anyone to wanting to learn to help others. This is the request he has heard for years and from thousands of people: How can I learn to help others? Imagine Earth is the answer.
