Amatara has announced it will run a six-day Mindfulness silent retreat in Phuket, Thailand, from 2-7 June 2020.

The retreat will focus on practical and theoretical aspects of meditation, using body and breath awareness training, yoga, and gentle stretching and movement sessions.

The retreat will be hosted by health and wellness coach Danica Toh, founder of Six Spac, a Singaporean self-awareness and mindfulness company.

Six Spac bases its coaching practices on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme, an eight-week programme which cultivates mindfulness and meditation techniques and was formulated to help people who experience physical and mental distress in their lives.

The retreat is designed to support long-lasting cognitive, emotional and behavioural changes and to foster peace, awareness and greater clarity of mind.

Participants will have the opportunity to visit the Amatara Spa, a 2,000sq m space which offers treatments and holistic wellbeing practices, including mud therapy, a Thai hammam, traditional Thai medicine, and a range of western treatments.

Guests will dine at the resort’s restaurant, The Retreat, which provides unrefined, organic, nutritious cuisine.

Limited communication will be available for participants, however, the majority of the retreat, including mealtimes, will be conducted in silence.

A single retreat package ranges from 84,800 to 134,200 Thai Baht (US$2,784 to $4,407, £2,259-£3576), depending on choice of room.

The package includes enrollment in the retreat, meals and accommodation, use of the pool, fitness and thermal facilities, and airport transfers.
