Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An, Vietnam has announced The Present: A Mindfulness Retreat, taking place October 1 to 5, 2018, an experience that invites an exploration of the mindfulness teachings of a zen master.

Led by the brothers and sisters of Hue's Từ Hiếu Pagoda—the "root pagoda" of zen master Thich Nhat Hanh—participants will experience sitting, walking and eating meditations, dharma talks and sharing sessions, plus vegetarian wellness meals, stability yoga and spa treatments; all designed to develop one’s connection to the self, the universe and the power of the present moment.

Located about a 60-mile drive away from the Resort in Thich Nhat Hanh’s central Vietnamese hometown of Hue, the Từ Hiếu Pagoda invites individuals to visit its grounds yet rarely participates in outside partnerships.

Pivoting Back to Travel, The Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Edition

2020 put the nuptial plans of thousands upon thousands of couples on hold, but with the promise of widespread vaccine distribution in the near future, it’s time to get back to planning and ensure your clients live out the destination weddings & honeymoons of their dreams. Hear from top suppliers and destinations on wedding venue & ceremony options, romantic destinations & resorts and more when you watch the event on-demand.

The program will commence at 6:30 a.m. each day and will see guests guided through a minimum of three daily mindfulness sessions: meditation, dharma talk and dharma sharing—practices used by the pagoda’s brothers and sisters to filter toxic emotions from their mind and soul while strengthening and sharpening their physical and emotional faculties.

A communal lunch will follow—during which participants will learn the five contemplations that the pagoda brothers and sisters practice during eating meditation—before an activity to relax, purify and strengthen the mind, soul and body. These activities include stability yoga on the beach to specialized spa treatments designed to connect guests to the present or inspire compassion deep within themselves.

In addition, program participants will receive round trip airport transfers, a choice of daily vegetarian breakfast selections from the retreat’s Wellness Menu, plus one three-course set dinner or theme night experience during their stay.
