There are somethings that are beyond explanation. My latest conversation with my scientist friend on this grey area reminded me of the upcoming event that we are planning. During a discussion between Sam, Trevor and I about designing a new retreat a few months ago, we were stuck at how we will pitch it. On one side, we tried to promote the evidence-based health benefits of the retreat. However, on the other side some of us believe that although the scientific proof is important, there is a school of thought that certain foods, singing bowls, and yoga can improve morale and overcome anxiety albeit some of these approaches are unproven.
9.00-9.30 : Arrival
9.30-11.00am : Ace’s yoga synchronised with sensory meditation, from focusing the eyes, feeling the skin and your bodyweight on the floor, and breathing.
11.00-11:30 Tea and comfort break
11.30-12.00pm : Sam will introduce her singing bowls and the theory behind the benefits of the sounds.
12.00-1.00pm : Trevor will explore how anxiety affects our bodies and how foods and drinks can help reduce these effects.
1.00-2.00pm : Lunch is served and will include many of the foods we have been discussing. You’ll have an opportunity to put some of your new knowledge of food into practice.
2.00-3.00pm : Trevor will explain how anxiety affects the way the body digests and responds to the foods we eat. He will also highlight how important our gut bacteria are for maintaining our health and preventing diseases.
3.00 - 3.45pm : Deep stretching with somatic yoga with Ace. The fluid flow between yin and yang energy aims to open the 3rd eye and crown chakra.
3.45-5:00pm : Sam’s singing bowls to calm an anxiety.
5.00pm: Retreat closes.
