Living in a highly-developed society provides us freedom and many opportunities for advancement. However, a fast-paced lifestyle also brings about instability and imbalance to one’s emotional and physical health. This key realization transpired into a vision of creating an ideal environment for people to come together to share life experiences, exchange mutual practices, and explore ways to live a happier life. Hence, the Retreat of Awakening was formed. The organization incorporates a unique way of Mindfulness practice in a 3-day, fun-filled program that allows participants to re-energize, refocus, and appreciate the present moment.
