What does mindfulness mean to you? With an increasing rate of work-related anxiety and depression and social-media fuelled stress, the call for a digital detox to clear the mind and find relief from toxic energies present in daily life has become radical. To do this, discover a mindfulness retreat.

Being mindful is a technique and a state of mind of being present in the moment, conscious to the surrounding sounds, scents and flavours as well as personal sensations, emotions and thoughts. Instead of alienating these elements, being mindful internalizes them by accepting them for being a part of you. Learning to handle these in the day-to-day life can lead to an overall improvement of wellbeing. To achieve this, mindful activities such as meditation, breathing and gentle motion exercises are included in each programme.

Why a mindfulness retreat may suit you?

For those feeling tirelessly coiled in a repetitive cycle, fraught in a myriad of emotions, a mindfulness retreat is a wonderful way to disconnect and centralise the focus on yourself. Attending retreats are most times misunderstood as being targeted for a particular group of individuals or for reconnecting with religious values. This is not true as there are different types of retreats aimed at achieving different results. Each a unique and transformative experience, the focus of a mindfulness retreat is to take you away from a space of stress to be submerged in a sanctuary of serenity. This will let the mind switch off to have time to reflect, realign and discover new and healthier outlooks.

In strides of slowness on a mindfulness retreat, individuals will be able to re-evaluate the importance of life. The things we value most may go forgotten or  neglected as we are warped in the wild symphony of life.

Types of mindfulness retreats

Beachside mindfulness retreat

Taking time out to be away from the city to indulge in a spot of alone time on a mindfulness retreat does not always involve reaching new heights and going against personal will. Spend it by the lapping ocean waves or on the fringes of ragged clifftops to soothe the soul. Let the therapeutic benefits of the outdoors quieten the mind, allowing it to drift off to a space of tranquillity. This style of retreat is beneficial to those who face difficulties being still and concentrating in the present as the natural landscapes are the only distractions to captivate attention and pique curiosities.

Countryside estate mindfulness retreat

Open the heart and mind and listen to the soothing sensations provided by the outdoors in a countryside estate mindfulness retreat. For those looking to indulge in an oasis within an oasis or be lost in the wonders of the whimsical outside landscape, consider a countryside estate mindfulness retreat to restore and reconfigure purpose and clarity. Focus on personal senses, emotions and thoughts and realise, these elements are a part of you.
