More about your Meditation & Mindfulness Holiday
On this holiday retreat you will experience the practice of mindfulness and guided meditations in these very beautiful natural surroundings, listening to the sounds of the sea and the birds. Our meditations will take place outdoors where we have both sunny and shaded areas, the luxury of beautiful gardens and the golden white sands of the beach. This way you get to enjoy meditating and practicing mindfulness in various settings.
You will be inspired and encouraged to incorporate these simple yet profound techniques into your day to day life.
The benefits of incorporating mindfulness into your daily life is proven to improve both mental and physical health. Mindfulness is now being examined scientifically and has been found to be a key element in happiness.
Professor emeritus Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder and former director of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, helped to bring the practice of mindfulness meditation into mainstream medicine and demonstrated that practicing mindfulness can bring improvements in both physical and psychological symptoms as well as positive changes in health attitudes and behaviours.
Many doctors encourage patients suffering from anxiety and depression to attend classes in mindfulness.
* help relieve stress

* improve sleep
* alleviate gastrointestinal difficulties
* alleviates depression & anxiety
Each morning of the retreat, after a leisurely breakfast, we will start with some gentle stretches and movement and continue with our mindfulness meditations in the beautiful gardens of the hotel and on the beach. We will finish at lunchtime, leaving time for you to explore this beautiful island or relax by the sea.
The group will enjoy breakfast and dinner together and for night owls there is always a lovely selection of music and live shows at the hotel in the evenings.
This is an ideal holiday if travelling alone, and you have the opportunity to build new life time friendships.
