About This Event
This Yoga retreat will focus on the chakras and creativity! If understood and mastered, PRANA, the vital principle of the universe, can become a powerful way to unlock your full energy potential. It infuses the different energy centers (CHAKRAS) in your body and will lead to a purification process of any mental or physical blockage, leading to inspired creativity.
“Each of the seven chakras has its own unique characteristics. When the chakras are awakened, they help us transform our lives and ignite our inherent enthusiasm by releasing negative emotions, managing our desires, developing creativity, restoring our personal power, and connecting us to Self and world. Gaining access to the chakras allows us to become the master of our own happiness. ” – Pandit Rajmani Tigunait

Venue HighlightsThe Mindfulness Project creates a working retreat which uses a revolutionary system to improve the possibilities of sustainable living. We are a German Non-profit organization with a spiritual foundation, dedicated to planting 100% of our donations straight into the ground.
We use a combination of modern scientific methods with ancient philosophies to promote personal development and healthy living. For example, we combine yoga, meditation, and spirituality, with nutritional guidance, psychology, and talking therapies.
We also use this combined approach in the fields of integrated agriculture, green building, alternative energy and recycling.
Our aim is to create an example of environmental and social utopia to show the world another way of living. While the Mindfulness Project is already planting seeds of change in the minds of volunteers and community members alike, we aim to grow this impact exponentially.
AccommodationsThe Mindfulness Project is in its early stages, so the facilities are quite basic but comfortable! We have open air dorms where you will sleep in close connection with the environment, next to our gardens and ponds. Enjoy waking up to the beautiful sounds of nature!
We have flush toilets and open air showers. Mattresses, bed sheets, pillows and mosquito nets are provided. Beds in Thailand are typically quite firm and are placed directly onto the floor. The yoga will be in a beautiful outside setting in nature.
