Open Mind Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat

Dates: 28th September – 5th October

A mindfulness-based retreat integrating heart and compassion practices, neuroscience, deep ancient Buddhism (Theravada and Tibethan), yoga (Hatha-Iyengar, Nidra, Yin) and therapeutic massages (Thai Aryuvedic – Reiki), nature and a splendid environment!

You may know the feeling of your mind being open, fully present, and full of possibilities while letting life flow through you…those moments of fun, succeeding in something, or being on vacation.

But what about the other moments? The ones in which life doesn’t go as planned or in which you get caught up in an automatic doing mode, thoughts, or feelings? How do you tune in on a space of openness and clarity, watching the waves of life, without being thrown in the sea? This is what the Open Mind Retreat is all about.

Opening to an observational space that doesn’t try to change stories, opinions, judgments, and feelings, but simply – and more profoundly – cuts through it.

Expanding the possibilities of the mind, and learning to observe the process of thinking, without drawing in the content of thoughts, and the self-imposed limitations. Discovering the potential of moods and feelings, letting them flow gracefully and compassionately, to learn from them, without letting them define reality or actions.

Opening to the possibilities of the body, and subconsciousness, learning the art of being present, enjoying life, and taking in the good even when there is a storm at sea.

Because even though we cannot stop the waves, we can learn how to surf and connect to the wisdom of the body, the clarity of the mind, and the compassionate heart. We can only grow out of acceptance and recognition with what we encounter, not out of a fight or striving for something better. Book this retreat.
