Life is a series of cycles. Highs… Lows… Advances… Retreats… What are considered low points can reveal powerful opportunities to venture within and find inner clarity and/or strength for your journey… to restore.
At Palmaïa’s in-house retreats, we hold space for you to gather and prepare for this next advance. We share methodologies that help train your mindset and support your health through focused curricula.
Please take a moment for yourself and explore the different retreats on offer below. We are just getting started, so if something doesn’t feel perfect for you, be sure to check back and explore what we add throughout the year.
Teacher : Dra. Urzsula Klich
An enriching 5-day workshop to learn how to assess the stress, burnout, compassion, fatigue, and vicarious traumatization caused by everyday life, personalizing your approach to self-care and caring for and treating others.
You will have the opportunity to:
• Discover simple methods for adding evidence-based mind and body strategies into your daily routine and work with others.
• Practice using biofeedback technology to review and “see” physiological functioning in real-time, applying evidence-based relaxation and stress reduction strategies.
• Explore and test relaxation strategies for improved physiological response (discover what really works on your nervous system and what does not).
• Learn how to use techniques from positive psychology, acceptance, commitment (ACT), and compassion-focused approaches to increase the capacity to comfort, protect and validate yourself and motivate and challenge others in various circumstances.
