Mindful Leadership, Teams and Wellbeing 

Does your work serve the planet?
The soul-numbing scenario of a job or career that just trades time for an income is unfulfilling.
You can use your work to make a difference in the world by learning to follow a deeper calling that aligns with the interests of humanity, the planet, your community and your core values. Now is the time to take a whole new approach to your work.
"Thoroughly unprepared,
we take the step into the afternoon of life. 
Worse still, we take this step
with the false presupposition
that our truths and our ideals
will serve us as hitherto. 
But we cannot live the afternoon of life 
according to the program of life’s morning,
for what was great in the morning 
will be little at evening 
and what in the morning was true, 
at evening will have become a lie"
                                          Carl Gustav Jung

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 a retreat at Nirvana Wellness 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. 

Mindful Wellbeing Residential Retreats 
Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary
 a sacred sanctuary 
to cultivate the very best in the human heart. 
The solution
to the epidemic of chronic illness 
are stunningly, ridiculously simple
and obvious.
You need to
reduce your chronic stress,
regulate your emotions,
eat more unprocessed food from nature: 
abundant fresh fruit and vegetables,
prioritise sleeping more,
sitting down less,
exercising where you can soak in the health benefits of being outdoors
nurture relationships,
and plan to ensure that lifestyle changes last.
