Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai Debuts Mindfulness Retreat

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. 

Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit

May 21-23, 2019 | Reunion | Kissimmee, FL

This exclusive, invite-only event focused on the luxury travel market brings together world-class travel agency owners and managers with the most opulent, luxury suppliers to cultivate collaboration, share insights, and help carve a path into the future of luxury travel.

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.
