Led by celebrity coach Santhosh Babu, Iyengar yoga practitioner Raageshwari, American Holotropic Breathwork experts Sharanya and Dough.
New Delhi May 29, 2014, A dozen experts including celebrity coach Santhosh Babu, singer-actress Raageshwari and American holotropic breathwork experts Sharanya and Dough, are among the dozen alternate therapists participating in India's first-ever retreat on Mindfulness in Palakkad, Kerala from 26-30 June 2014.
The five-day retreat offers tools and methodologies for inner transformation of individuals keen to explore inner development.
"Mindfulness, as a concept, is gaining popularity with thousands of people showing interest in meditation, yoga and mindfulness. Time magazine's January 2014 cover story focused on 'Mindfulness Revolution' while the Wisdom 2.0 conference, held in in San Francisco in February 2014, deliberated mindfulness", says Retreat Director Santhosh Babu.
"This Mindfulness Retreat is for people who want to be self-aware and work on themselves. We look forward to working with 40-50 individuals -- corporate executives, businessmen and families -- with an open mind, quest for greater understanding and the will to explore more," adds Santhosh Babu.
Well known singer-actress Raageshwari is now a Facial and Iyengar yoga practitioner. She began a long journey of positivity and healing when she was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy, a nervous disorder that leads to the paralysis of the facial muscles. As medicines could not help, she restored strength of her facial muscles through facial yoga and Iyengar yoga, without reconstructive surgery.
"For me, the growth during the time I was ill, was huge. Today I know exactly what I want, and that became possible, because I had the time to rediscover myself, when I fell ill. Introduction to yoga, meditation, and holistic healing started to take over my life. If you really, really believe in something, it will come true," says Raageshwari.
Other session experts include US-based Holotropic Breathwork trainer Sharanya Naik. Holotropic Breathwork, is a tool developed by Dr. Stanislav Grof as an adjunct to psychedelic psychotherapy and as alternate to LSD that was once used in psychotherapy. This is the first time Holotropic Breathwork will be taught to the general public in India.
Raji Prakash, Retreat co-chair said, "The attendees will benefit from self-awareness, mindfulness, overall health and personal transformation."
