8 Day Mind Balance Retreat

Phuket is an international magnet for beach lovers and diving enthusiasts - and it’s no wonder why. Phuket generally is a place where people flock to in seeking calm, tranquility, and healing. Whenever we experience stress we are excitable, anxious, jumpy and irritable. Moreover stress actually reduces our capacity to work effectively by impairing our ability to make fine judgments. We find ourselves more accident-prone and less able to make good decisions and ultimately the chronic presence of those hormones wears the body down. 

During this retreat, you will learn to successfully apply breathing and mind techniques that gradually lead to the restoration of a state of consciousness of deep stillness and clarity. The retreat starts with morning sessions of "setting the state of mind" in which you deeply apply relaxation techniques and learn to completely release any tension in the body and bring the nervous system to rest.

Meditation is a type of mental exercise where one trains to enhance balanced state of mind such as tranquility, clarity and mindfulness. Therefore meditation is showed to improve both physical and emotional responses to stress due to the development of a calm, peaceful and balanced mental state that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. Some of the benefits of meditation include: improved stress management skills, higher mental clarity, gaining a new perspective on stressful situations, building skills to manage your stress, increasing self-awareness, focusing on the present, reducing negative emotions.

During the course of the days, there will be sessions of "Quietness and Clarity" during which you will learn how to expand your own attention and awareness while your inner state of peace and well-being will become more and more profound. The best way to start and maintain a meditative practice is to incorporate it into our daily routine enabling us to remain in a balanced state of mind while engaging with work, family, school and other commitments.

This 8 day retreat package includes your accommodations, 1 return airport transfer per room, Thanyapura Gift & Welcome package, daily well-being lectures, daily access to outdoor pool and fitness facilities, oil pulling set, access to infrared sauna, plant based nutrition program, 2 health and wellness advisor consultations, 2 Acupuncture Therapies, 1 stress reduction cupping therapy, 1 Herbal Compress Massage, 1 relaxing foot massage therapy, daily fitness classes, 2 private yoga therapies, and 1 daily private stress management meditation and mind trainings.

Thalang is one of the three districts that make up Phuket, Thailand and is located in the northern part of the island. In its heyday many decades ago, Thalang was one of the most important business and administration towns in the south of Thailand. Visitors looking to catch a glimpse of the past and see how Phuket was before the blooming of its tourism industry will enjoy various parts of Thalang.

Travelers come to Thalang to do everything from play golf to cool off in water parks to relax in spas and take part in Thalang yoga. Many come to Thalang to snorkel in the jungle-surrounded aqua blue marines and caverns, and enjoy quiet dinners on the beach. Those looking for nighttime excitement can visit the Phucket Fanta Sea park, which contains live shows, restaurants, shopping and wonderful photo ops. During the daytime, the region is bustling with markets, outdoor cafes and tour buses, so there's always something to do no matter the time of day. Take small side roads that lead you to local villages (where you still can see some old wooden houses), rubber plantations, beaches and a few national parks. Or visit some of its popular attractions including Splash Jungle –Thailand’s largest water park, Thalang Museum, Phuket Heroines’ Monument, temples and international award-winning golf courses.
