Luxury Pilgrims

Just finished our 3rd annual Contemplative Practice and Wellness Retreat in Phuket, and the incomparable Amanpuri Resort. We hosted a small group of graduate level psychology students in a training designed to share mindfulness practice for practical application in the clinical setting.

It was a fabulous reminder that being a pilgrim, learning to train the mind and body to be present does NOT have to mean self-denial through  ascetic practices.

Though we did practice yoga and meditation each day, and discussed ways to inspire compassion to arise in our hearts, we also ate fantastic Thai food, discovered the beautiful beaches Thailand is famous for.

We will repeat this program again in October 2014, so if you are interested to join send me a message in the form below, or click here for more information.
