Castlemartyr Resort, County Cork, Ireland
Give yourself a break – reconnect with your spirit, awaken to your full potential, and enhance your wellbeing as you go on an inner journey at the Ayurveda & the Power of Attention Retreat.
Explore and embrace these essentials during the weekend retreat: meditation, mindfulness, and mind body wisdom. It’s a one-of-a-kind meditation vacation with Hay House author and meditation mentor, Sarah McLean, and Chopra Center Ayurveda Educator and meditation teacher, Suzi von Mensenkampff.
Imagine a weekend away and immersing yourself in powerful meditation practices and gain insight, rejuvenation, and inspiration. While discovering the keys to creating optimal well-being from the ancient art of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda translates as “the wisdom of life,” and offers a guidance for attaining happiness and vitality. Its perspective is that human beings are more than physical thinking machines; they are fields of intelligence in dynamic exchange with the environment. There is a constant flow of energy and information between us and nature. Health is more than the absence of disease – it’s a dynamic state of physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
You’ll discover your dosha (your mind/body constitution) and find the keys to creating balance by integrating this ancient healing wisdom into your life. Learn to:
- Create a harmonizing daily routine to create more natural rhythm in your life;
- Use food as medicine and learn the secrets of the six tastes;
- Enliven our inner pharmacy through balancing the five senses; sight, sound, taste, smell and touch.
According to ancient wisdom, your awareness is primary, and is the access point to making meaningful transformation in your life. And the best way to access and become more tuned in to your awareness is through the practices of meditation and mindfulness.
During this weekend, you’ll experience deep meditation practices and discover the power of your attention. Get reconnected with your body and mind so you can make more nourishing lifestyle choices and tap into your own inner wisdom. You’ll experience:
- An introduction to various meditation practices and learning to be mindful in everyday life;
- Understanding the effects of stress: how it accumulates and the best ways to release it;
- Becoming intimate with the way your mind works and learning to be in charge of your attention.
Beginners aren’t just welcome, they’re embraced at this retreat. You don’t need any prior experience with mind/body health or meditation. Whether this is your first retreat, or you’re a retreat junkie, it’s guaranteed that you’ll leave transformed and inspired.
