Two Rivers Retreat

Date: 31 Aug 2019 - 8 Sep 2019

Thailand, Koh Phangan

You are invited to attend a week-long mindfulness retreat in beautiful Koh Phangan, Thailand, facilitated by experienced psychologists, 31 August – 8 September 2019.

Do you feel you always have too much on your mind?

Are you critical towards yourself?

Do you find it is hard to relax and be present?

Do you want more satisfaction from life?

Do you want to learn valuable skills while nourishing your body and mind?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this retreat is for you.

With only one retreat a year, this is your chance to do something for yourself. Take time off to focus on improving your quality of life and to slow down, build your resilience and connect with yourself. You will also learn powerful tools that will help you focus, be more self-aware and improve your life long after the retreat has ended.
Everything at the retreat is taken care of, so all you need is to book a place and show up, and we will look after you! Plus, with two experienced facilitators, you know we’ve got your back.


What you will get

When you give yourself what you deserve and invest in yourself away from your day-to-day life, you can make sustainable changes to your wellbeing. Give yourself a gift that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Our retreats are a fun, practical exploration of the powerful skills of mindfulness and self-compassion. Run by experienced clinical psychologists, you will learn a number of powerful tools as well as deepening your self-awareness and clarity around what is really important in life.

You will also get to slow down and relax, improve your physical health through healthy eating, meditation and yoga, and perhaps most importantly, form genuine connections with awesome like-minded people from around the world.
As well as relaxing and being pampered, you will learn simple, evidence-based tools to help you:

• Manage stress better
• Relate to difficult thoughts and emotions in a healthier way
• Be kinder and more compassionate toward yourself
• Respond effectively to life’s challenges (rather than reacting in unhelpful ways)
• Establish a sustainable daily mindfulness practice
• Increase your self-awareness and learn how to let this guide your choices and goal-setting
• Be more present with yourself and others
• Develop emotional resilience and balance
• Improve concentration and focus

According to recent studies, mindfulness and self-compassion can help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, and improve emotional well-being, relationships, and self-care.

Based on neuroscience and the latest research, we have put together a program combining mindfulness and self-compassion practices as well as tools from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. The program is interactive and engaging. It includes some theoretical background, lots of practical exercises and an opportunity to practice mindful communication so we can share experiences and learn from one another.
