Mindfulness & Wellness Retreat
Charlotte Thaarup-Owen to host Mindfulness & Wellness Retreat at Aro-Ha
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 her second Mindfulness and Wellness Retreat at the eco-luxe Aro-Ha Wellness Retreat on New Zealand’s South Island from October 22 to 28.
In a busy world filled with online communication and information overload and a thousand rules on eating, on being successful, looking amazing, being the best parent, the best partner, the best cook , it is harder and harder to truly live in the moment.
Mindfulness is a consciousness discipline that enables clarity of mind. Recent research on neuroscience and mindfulness has demonstrated that mindfulness practice can lead to greater resilience, clarity of mind, productivity and ability to cope under pressure as well as improved relationships.
Aro-Ha’s nature based location nestled in the foothills of the surrounding mountains on the shores of Lake Wakatipu lends itself perfectly to reducing our internal clutter while learning to live more in the now.
Guests will spend seven 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 six night seven day retreat will help you create a place of quiet within admist 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. You will experience mindfulness and take away many tools and ways to integrate it into your every day life.
The retreat costs NZ$6250 all inclusive and bookings can be made via the Aro-Ha website.
