New Life Stories by Hilary H Carter
These fascinating real life stories of recovery from depression, addiction and burn-out demonstrate that however far we fall there is always hope. New Life is a unique community as it uses a variety of techniques, such as mindfulness and meditation, to address issues of stress, depression, trauma, addiction, and more.
Suffering comes in many forms. From depression to alcoholism, from drug addiction to sudden bereavement, from abuse to burnout, from social anxiety to relationship issues and more.
In the hills of northern Thailand is a unique and exciting mindful recovery community where people from all over the world can learn to discover a new life through the practice of mindfulness. In this book, ten of the residents of the New Life Foundation share their own stories, demonstrating how they have benefited through the practice of mindfulness. Their fascinating true-life narratives demonstrate that however far we fall, there is always hope and the opportunity to learn and grow from our experience.
The foundation is a registered non-profit organization that aims to provide affordable support for all in need. 100% of the royalties from this book will be donated to New Life.

These inspiring stories demonstrate the transformative power of mindfulness and meditation practice; the power to heal the heart-mind in recovery; and beyond. These are real people; real stories and they give real hope. I recommend this book. Vince Cullen, Founder of Hungry Ghost Retreats.
