August long weekend Mindfulness Retreat -

De-stress - connect to self - gain perspective on your life 

 

An actual holiday to focus on what is important to you, that brings you back nourished with tools that are of value to your busy day to day life!

So – meditating on a cushion for an hour every morning sounds completely over the top. Who has the time or interest? And it's... well... for those weird spiritual people, right? But most of us feel like we could be happier, more chilled out, and generally a bit more balanced, if we could only figure out how... Really, there's got to be more to life than being on-call, connected, and accountable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We work late hours, answer emails in what should be our free time, often feel stressed at work or home, and don't even feel particularly refreshed after our holidays!

 

The added challenge is many of us tend to rely on relaxing and unwinding in ways that do the opposite of recharging us! Not surprisingly, we feel overwhelmed and burned out on a pretty frequent basis.

It seems pretty radical to many people that meditation and mindfulness are being touted almost as a cure-all in the media – but if we look at the science (and there's tons of it now), it's close! It might as well be the magic pill in the Matrix!

If greater well-being isn’t enough of an incentive, scientists have discovered that making use of mindfulness techniques helps improve physical, mental and emotional health. For these good reasons, many people in the business world, including CEO's, Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurs, are talking about using mindfulness to improve work performance, boost bottom lines, and create personal and professional success.

So take three days out with us this August public holiday, and we'll guide you through a recharging weekend of mindful activities, arming you with valuable tools to take home and easily integrate into your weekly routine.

We'll introduce you to the mindful approach to living life – incorporating connection to yourself and your environment, meditations, mindful movement practice, maintaining balance at work and being part of a growing community. You'll have time and the structure to completely relax, and reflect on important questions you may have about your current and next phase of life.

What you'll get out of this weekend:

  • - Learn basic mindfulness meditation techniques

  • - Sharpen skills of attention, presence and emotional intelligence

  • - Learn how to reduce stress during work

  • - Integrate mindfulness into movement/yoga

  • - Challenge your limiting beliefs & engrained habits

  • - Take home tools to make mindfulness a part of day-to-day life

  • - Learn practices to tap into your creative self

  • - Develop agile and flexible mindsets as a foundation for leadership

What To Expect...

Daily Yoga & Meditation Practice

 

Take the opportunity every morning to connect with your mind and body before the day begins. Better than coffee, a good stretch and mental tune-up session create a relaxed and focused state for the activities ahead. Meditation and mindfulness practice throughout the day will help you get firmly rooted into the techniques you'll be learning. Our mindfulness meditation techniques are based on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program as taught by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Group & One-On-One Discussions

 

These discussions are a chance to check in with your facilitators, yourself and others who are attending, in which time you can share experiences and insights with one another, ask questions about developing your mindfulness practice and get to know each other better, as we help lay the foundations for an ongoing support system.

Digital Detox

 

Time to unplug! It's tough for us to put our phones away sometimes, but we guarantee it's a refreshing experience. It's a chance to let go of the outside world for a short while, and allow yourself to completely sink into a slower pace and reconnect to the simple pleasures of life.

 

Healthy Eating

 

Beautiful healthy vegetarian meals will be provided, and we'll include all-organic fare as often as possible. The land of Bali is abundant and 90% of all resources are produced within the country. You will be well provided for throughout the retreat with a wholesome menu designed specifically to nourish the body and mind, as well as gain insights to take home to encourage a more mindful relationship with food.

Stunning Surroundings

 

Relax completely in comfort, Bali villa style. Our accommodations are chosen based on numbers- we choose quiet and beautiful villas so you will feel pampered and taken care of, while being able to detach from the outside world for a while. You'll have everything you need right on-site.

 

Time In Nature

 

People travel from all over the world to enjoy Bali's stunning natural beauty. Along with guided reflective walks in nature, you will have plenty of chances to take personal time and connect to this ancient and serene land.
