Positioning itself as one of Thailand’s leading destination spas, Amatara Wellness Resort in Phuket announces a full immersion Mindfulness Silent Retreat from 2-7 June 2020. In collaboration with health and wellness coach, and founder of Six Spac, Danica Toh, the five-night experience will provide participants with the skills to apply mindfulness to everyday life through an artful integration of meditation and yoga techniques taken in undisturbed silence. Complemented by the tranquil natural setting of Amatara Wellness Resort and flavourful nourishing cuisine, participants will develop the skills to implement cognitive, emotional and behavioural changes to nurture inner peace, cultivate greater awareness and find clarity of mind.

Singapore-based company Six Spac works to support clients with quality experiential training in the practice of self-awareness to help cope effectively with life stressors; gain insights into the workings of their mind to strive for inner wisdom, compassion and wellbeing; and cultivate happiness and satisfaction in life.  The foundations are built on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme, one of the most recognised and established mindfulness courses in the world. With guidance from the Amatara Wellness team of certified therapists, the six-day/five-night Mindfulness Silent Retreat will combine holistic mindfulness practices by Six Spac with the resort’s established expertise in rounded wellbeing.

Creating a solitary experience to provide participants an opportunity to reach deep states of consciousness, the retreat will guide participants through the practical and theoretical aspects of meditation. An intensive tailored programme of body and breath awareness training; mindfulness meditation practices; and gentle stretching and movement sessions will leave participants with an increased sense of balance and wellbeing, and the skills to better deal with stress. Additional benefits include increased energy levels and overall productivity; improved levels of concentration and focus through a clearer mind; and a stronger immune system.
