A bit on Mindfulness if you don’t mind:
“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”
During Destress and Reset Retreat, we’ll introduce you to a range of mindfulness techniques. These will focus on cultivating peace and happiness in ourselves. We’ll take time to explore what it means to be mindful. You’ll also be able to connect with the benefits of mindfulness on a personal level.
We will practice mindfulness techniques including meditation. You will obtain the hands-on experience of applying mindfulness in your everyday activities here on the retreat as well. This will help you cultivate your ability to enjoy and savor every moment thereafter.
Our beautiful surroundings create the perfect environment for us to practice being mindful. We will practice mindfulness in simple everyday activities such as eating, walking, undertaking creative pursuits, and being together.
We’ll take time to practice directing awareness to our experiences. We will be working with the breath, the body, and whatever is present for us. Mindfulness is like yoga for the mind helping us to savor our everyday life.
A bit more about Yoga Nidra:
With this method using Yoga Nidra with Sankalpa (wish, decision) we can overcome our weaknesses, bad characteristics and habits, as deeply hidden psychical problems.
This technique also helps us to deal with those problems, which are rooted into subconscious, but their effects reach to the conscious level: uncontrollable rage, depression, complexes, and fears.
Yoga Nidra acts psychotherapeutically. It brings inner fullness, self-confidence, and strength to cope with life. It is also of big spiritual significance, because in the higher levels leads us to Samadhi, the highest state of consciousness, which is the ultimate goal.
A note for our Workaholics:
With pressure piling up at work or whatever your situation may be, and expectations always being raised, it’s far too easy to let everything get on top of us in our stressful daily lives. If you’re lacking motivation, feeling emotionally drained and physically exhausted, you may be suffering from burnout syndrome. It is time to recover, and discover long-lasting stress relief techniques.
Our tranquil location and our specially designed program with one-on-one expert attention can help you to destress and learn long-term burnout prevention techniques. You will learn solu-tions you can use immediately to deal with stress, tension, and time management.
It is time to stop and pause, it is time to breathe!
We are not going to review deep spiritual philosophies here. We are going to talk about tools you can put into practice, we are going to talk and share our thoughts about habits, decisions, patterns, etc.
We are grateful you decided to join us!
