We live at the dawn of a new age in human evolution where we’re consuming and processing incredible amounts of digital information daily. The information itself no doubt enhances our lives, but the technology that delivers it can also dull us. Feedback from our own bodies, the accumulated findings of neuroscience, and our own common sense makes it clear that there is value in taking an offline pause. It’s time to reconnect with our truest selves, delete unnecessary life data, receive the rejuvenating and healing power of nature, and re-enliven our senses and creativity.
It’s one thing to “digitally detox.” A vacation can do that. But it’s another thing altogether to step back into the world of noise and technology grounded, conscious, and well equipped for a commitment to sustaining our own health, and an inspiration toward applying our heart and our intelligence for the common good. That’s what programs at Nirvana Wellness Retreat Sanctuary is all about.
Here you pause long enough to restore and revive your five senses and return to your everyday life consciously. Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary retreats have been helping people slow down and reboot back to health for 45 years and counting.
