Nature Immersion

Relaxation

“In every second, you interact with your environment through your five senses: what you see, hear, smell, touch, and taste. But while we’re looking to be more aware of the present moment, our brain governs us and immediately interprets the information received to give guidance. With simple techniques and guidance from our trained guides, we help you achieve a great change in the way you approach life and you regain your health and well-being.”

What You Will Experience

Experience profound nature and self connection through “Ichigo-Ichie” (一期一会, literally “one time, one meeting”).

Ichigo-Ichie is a Japanese philosophy that describes a cultural concept of treasuring the unrepeatable nature of a moment. The term has been translated as “for this time only,” and “once in a lifetime”.

Becoming aware of Ichigo-Ichie helps us to slow down the pace of life and remember that each morning we spend in the world, every moment we spend with our loved ones is infinitely valuable and deserves our full attention.

The cultivation and practice of Ichigo-Ichie will allow you to lead a happier, more fulfilled life, without feeling weighed down by the past or anxious about the future. You’ll learn to live fully in the present, acknowledging and appreciating the gift of every moment.

“Every one of us contains a key that can open the door to attention, harmony with nature, and joy of life. The Mindful Tourist retreat and training are not about hiking, camping or wilderness adventure, but rather your opportunity to learn to connect and appreciate the beautiful nature around you and the simple joy of life in a profoundly mindful manner, wherever you are.”
