Mindfulness & Wellness Retreat

Charlotte Thaarup-Owen to host Mindfulness & Wellness Retreat at luxe Aro-Ha Wellness Retreat

If you want to experience more peace and joy and less rumination and worry then you need to keep the brain agile through mindfulness. That’s the message from international Mindfulness guru Charlotte Thaarup-Owen who will be hosting a Mindfulness and Wellness Retreat at the eco-luxe Aro-Ha Wellness Retreat on New Zealand’s South Island from July 23 to 27.

In a busy world filled with online communication and information overload and a thousand rules on eat organic, read labels, don’t poison your family, be successful, look amazing it is harder and harder to truly live in the moment.

Aro-Ha’s nature based location nestled in the foothills of the surrounding mountains on the shores of Lake Wakatipu lends itself perfectly to living in the now and is an ideal location for this retreat.

Guests will spend five days with Charlotte with daily classes on mindfulness while still experiencing the Aro-Ha Signature Retreat of daily yoga, long mountain hikes, stunning wholefoods cleansing cuisine and daily massages.

The evidence based mindfulness approach practiced by Charlotte focuses on the now rather than the past or future. Those who attend the retreat and practice mindfulness can expect to improve their sleep, reduce stress, reduce aging, reduce blood pressure, improve memory and promote balanced emotions with reduced anxiety and depression.

The four night five day retreat will help you create a place of quiet within amidst the chaos and demands of outside by training the mind to pay careful attention to reality, to prevent wandering and promote clarity of focus. Through non judgement, acceptance, curiosity and kindness retreat guests will explore the role of mindfulness training for self care and stress management.

The retreat costs NZ$4550 all inclusive and bookings can be made via the Aro-Ha website.
