‘Not to be disloyal to the medium but deleting Twitter from at least your phone really improves mental health and inner conversation’
Alain de Botton (alaindebotton)

A SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX RETREAT is something we all long for but is not always what we think we need.
Most of us won’t admit how much social media means, or has meant, to us. Starting and finishing the day checking our Facebook and Twitter feeds, Instagram accounts or mailboxes; making sure we are up-to-date with all the news and every like/comment attention we have received or given in the virtual world.

Is this all not so draining, distracting and challenging of our focus and concentration?

What if we used the time away to rest our eyes and our minds; to read the book we have always wanted to read, to indulge in a magazine or newspaper, to have a conversation we have always wanted or to enjoy a mindful rural walk without feeling the need to feed our social media followers with posts of the on-route photos?

What would we lose and what would we gain?

You are invited on a journey to discover clarity and focus in your thoughts and a personal perspective on your digital life – the rediscovery of human connection and the power of single tasking.

This weekend is for everyone whose mission is to live well and expand their horizons. No experience of yoga or mindfulness/meditation is necessary and everyone will be respected and encouraged forward.
