5D4N Journey to Personal Discovery

Inner reflection is an empowering process that reconnects you to the core of your being. The Inner Reflection Retreat is an intermediate-level programme that applies meditation techniques taught in the Inner Peace Retreat to help you achieve visible and sustainable progress in your spiritual development.

Over the course of five days, you’ll progress from observing your thoughts and mental habits, to getting intimately familiar with your mind — the source of your thinking, your mental triggers, and how they impact your perception and actions.

The programme includes:

  • Reflection exercises
  • Extended meditation sessions
  • Healing visualisations
  • Morning + evening yoga
  • Wholesome vegetarian meals based on a healthy retreat-friendly menu with anti-inflammatory and detox benefits
  • Comfortable accommodation in the forest

 

Our experienced facilitators will guide you through reflection exercises to help you develop an understanding of how your mind works. During in-depth meditation sessions, you will observe your thoughts arise with clarity, and experience their impact on your emotional wellbeing and consequent actions.

Through further contemplations on these observations, you’ll identify the source of your life experiences, both joyous and painful, and eventually get to know yourself better. This is the stepping stone to building a constructive relationship with yourself, your goals and the people you love.

A post-programme support group is available to help you internalise your experiences so that you can integrate meditation and mindfulness into your daily lifestyle.
