Afro Botho is pencilled to host end of year Mindfulness Retreat in Maun. The event is scheduled to take place on November 30th - December 2nd. It will be held at the Afro Botho farm in Boro, located 10 kilometres from Maun.
The place, according to organisers, is of tranquillity surrounded by natural beauty and beautiful lagoon that is fed by the great Thamalakane River. The place, says the organisers is designed to promote personal rejuvenation and offer an escape from daily routine. In an interview with one of the organisers, MotherK Masire tells this publication that the retreat specifically focuses on unplugging and connecting with one’s inner selves.
“It gives participants a chance to get away from the struggles of daily life, and a chance to get out of your heads and allow your bodies, minds, and spirits to heal. What could be better than that,” she says.She explains that the retreat is ideal for individuals who would love to give themselves some self-care before the festive season madness or for corporates to reward or give incentive for deserving employees.
Those who are interested can look forward to practical mindfulness tools that can be implemented in everyday life for a positive change that can be sustained. “Individuals are guided on how to use mindfulness tools with a follow-up self-evaluation system that enables them to monitor their progress based upon their personal self-effort,” she explains. The price for the retreat is P2500 (inclusive of accommodation per person sharing and meals but excludes transport to Maun)
