SLOW DOWN IN LAOS

 

Welcome to Laos! Among our destinations, Laos is by far the best one to get out of the western “rush mindset” and experience living in the rhythm of nature. Embrace the Laotian slow pace of living and allow yourself to slow down.

As you explore the beauty of Luang Prabang with its golden temples and colonial architecture,  you will naturally slow down to a more relaxed state of being.

Start your retreat with a wellness experience where an open-air meditation and yoga session will set you in a relaxed mood. Explore the unspoilt beauty of Kuang Si Waterfalls, the biggest waterfall in the Luang Prabang area with its spectacular azure pools, great for a refreshing swim.

Then, meet a former novice in one of the oldest temples in town where you will learn about Buddhist culture, architecture, temple etiquette and the daily life of Novices and Monks. This is your opportunity to find out everything you would like to know about Buddhism in Laos and to deepen your understanding about life and spirituality. A meditation in the temple will give you the opportunity to learn and practice the same meditation techniques used by monks before receiving a monk’s blessing.

You will get the chance to engage in silk weaving and Lao crafts-making workshops: the patience required to wave silk or bamboo into beautiful souvenirs is a key to let go of hurry.

Then, you will explore the mysterious beauty of the Lao jungle with recently rescued elephants as your companions. This ethical therapeutic trek offers you a once-in-a-lifetime experience to absorb their calming energy as mahouts provide an insight into how elephants and humans communicate.

Learn to go with the flow during a kayaking experience down a gentle stretch of river. As you relax and take in your surroundings, you will notice how you no longer feel rushed to get somewhere, but enjoy being in the moment.

To end the retreat in style, you will indulge in a luxury sunset experience on a river cruise, sampling traditional Lao canapes as you watch the sun sink behind the mountains.
