Cape Town’s Tintswalo Atlantic has partnered with experienced Mindful host, Tracy Winde, to present a series of retreats during the upcoming winter months.
The three ‘Mindfulness Pause Retreats’ are aimed at people who want to experience life more mindfully and who want to expand their awareness and growth; from those just beginning their journey, to those already well-travelled.
Says Lisa Goosen, CEO of Tintswalo Lodges: ‘In today’s hectic world of work, noise, disruption and social media, we hardly ever give ourselves time to switch off, to re-connect, to experience the simple joy of being. This retreat is a gift of time and space where guests not only have the opportunity to experience Tintswalo’s warm hospitality, but are also held in a safe and compassionate space to experience their divine inner self. With these retreats we are aiming at presenting guests with a life-changing, soul-nourishing, and unforgettable experience’.
Activities and specialist teachers have been carefully curated and handpicked by Winde, and may vary from one programme to another. These range from Tai Chi facilitated by James Godwin and OM Chanting led by Carl Van Vuuren, to Sacred Drumming facilitated by the Drum Café.
Tintswalo Atlantic’s unique position overlooking the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean lends itself perfectly to a Water Ceremony facilitated by Shelley Ruth Wyndham and a Sacred Sound Experience using frequency, vibration, silence and stillness with Lindi te Water.
Winde will lead daily meditation, while interesting talks include for example, Leon Lewis’ Wisdom sharing themed ‘Connecting with the Ancient Heart’. Other highlights include the opportunity for a five-hour Silent Retreat facilitated by Mandy Johnson.
