How will you feel after your inspiring & rejuvenating retreat in the serene mountains of Chiang Mai?

You matter. Your well-being is important. We all tend to focus on things that are happening around us and forget to take care of ourselves. We don’t even know definitively what we want because we’re struggling. We don’t even know what we feel. In order to find clarity and cultivate your power, motivation and creativity you need to find stillness and look inward. AMAYEN Sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Thailand is the ultimate travel destination for relaxing and for fine-tuning your mindset towards an extraordinary successful lifestyle.

If you find it impossible to silence your mind and you’re always thinking of the next thing you need to do then our all inclusive yoga and meditation retreat gives you a perfect opportunity to stop overthinking it all. Use this time to turn off all the noise of your own voice and open yourself to a more positive and focused way of thinking. Clarity provides both the joy and the courage required to live with absolutely no regrets.

The AMAYEN story: “My journey from confusion to clarity”

BY MIGUEL KIRJON, OWNER & FOUNDER

“I was sitting at my desk one morning, working on the 10th business idea I had come up with in the last six months, and began to feel a sense of emptiness that made me sit back and pause. I was confused and felt trapped in my life. The clock was ticking but my life was standing still. I imagined how I would feel if I were stuck for another year?…Another five?

Oh, hell no! Why was I working so hard? Why was I chasing every new idea and thing that came to mind? I was desperate to be successful. But I didn’t realize that success as a life long entrepreneur in my mind meant never taking a break, filling my time up with busyness, always burning out, and living a life that I wasn’t excited to live. I needed to get a new perspective on my situation. I needed to find clarity.”

“Then it gradually became clear: Rest; that’s what had been missing. I needed to breakout of my daily routine and get some clarity. I realised that we all need regular periods of stillness to explore our inner world and recharge if we want to stay healthy, sane and successful.

Having spent many years in the hotel industry designing, branding and creating unique and memorable guest experiences I knew that I could literally create a place of stillness, warmth and safety. A sanctuary where nothing is expected of you, where relaxing and letting time pass are your only priorities. A place where you can discover and learn about your inner world, your desires and your way forward. This is how AMAYEN Sanctuary came to life.”

What is included and how does it work?

Our approach to great results? A simple collection of relaxation methods with a splash of comfort: yoga, qi gong, audio-guided creative visualization, mindful breathing, organic vegan cuisine, a personal growth workbook, like-minded people and some massage thrown in — not forgetting to have some fun along the way!

Creative Visualization

1x 30min per day

Read more...
Creative Visualization is the art of using mental imagery and affirmation to produce positive changes in your life. It is being successfully used in the fields of health, business, the creative arts, and sports, and in fact can have an impact in every area of your life. Our unique audio-guided visualization/meditation sessions (available in English, Thai, French) are induced by AMAYEN customized scripts that inspire you to explore your inner world, and let you discover and adjust (if necessary) your own hidden beliefs such as in relation to success, money, relationships and self-worth. In combination with the scripts, we are using Hemi-Sync® as a meditation tool; the very powerful and clinically proven “audio-guidance” sound technology which promptly promotes deep physical and emotional relaxation. The practice of meditation has a long list of benefits. As featured in an article in Psychology Today these consist of improving your ability to introspect, boosting your health and self-control, increasing your sense of connection to others and decreasing stress. The Indian yogi and mystic Sadghuru says: “Meditation is the only way to freedom from all the stress that man is going through.” Eckhart Tolle, the most popular Western spiritual author states: “When the body and mind are in sync, we are naturally relaxed, alert, open, and aware, and experience ourselves and the world in a direct, unmediated way, without conceptual filters. It is this direct experience of the fullness, vitality, and splendor of life that is the gift of meditation.” The talk show host of the highest-rated television program of its kind in history Oprah Winfrey writes that “The outside world is constantly trying to convince you you’re not enough. But you don’t have to take the bait. Meditation, in whatever form you choose, helps you resist.”

Thai or Aroma Oil Massage

60min per session

Read more...
Known to relieve stress and protect against stress-related health issues, the 2,500-year-old traditional Thai massage technique uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along your body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Practiced for centuries by Thai monks, the end result is a heightened sense of wellbeing and optimum relaxation.

Powerful BioGeometry®

Every Night

Read more...
We have refined your sleep experience and created designs based on the science of BioGeometry®. BioGeometry deals with shapes, colors, sound, etc. to interact with energy fields to produce a balancing effect on multiple levels on biological systems. The balancing/harmonizing produces positive effects on emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical levels. BioGeometry and BioSignatures are the terms coined by Dr. Ibrahim Karim, the founder of this science and re-discoverer of this ancient scientific paradigm. He is a graduate of the Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland (D.Sc./Dipl. Arch.-ETH), where he studied architecture. He served in advisory positions in Egypt to the Ministers of Health, Culture, Tourism and Scientific Research. He is also head of the Architecture and Industrial Design Firm Alemara, founded by his father Dr. Sayed Karim in 1939. The entire property has also been neutralized of all geopathic stress (electro magnetic fields) that might disturb your sleep. Visit geodesignasia.com and biogeometry.com for further details. AMAYEN Sanctuary founder Miguel Kirjon is an advanced level graduate of BioGeometry®.

Practicing yoga develops inner awareness. It focuses your attention on the body’s abilities at the present moment. It helps develop the breath and strength of mind and body. It’s not about physical appearance. According to a study by the Harvard Medical School yoga improves your own body image, increases mindfulness, boosts weight-loss and enhances fitness. The Huffington Post reports that yoga staves off stress and anxiety, decreases depression, and promotes positive self-perception among other benefits. The beauty of yoga is that you don’t have to be a yogi or yogini to reap the benefits writes The New York Times. Whether you are young or old, overweight or fit, yoga has the power to calm the mind and strengthen the body. Don’t be intimidated by yoga terminology, fancy yoga studios and complicated poses.

Singing Bowl Treatment *

Increase Balance

Read more...

Tibetan singing bowls are a type of bell that vibrates and produces a rich, deep tone when played. Also known as singing bowls or Himalayan bowls, Tibetan singing bowls are said to promote relaxation and offer powerful healing properties.

Buddhist monks have long used Tibetan singing bowls in meditation practice. In addition, some wellness practitioners (including music therapists, massage therapists, and yoga therapists) use Tibetan singing bowls during treatment.

People use Tibetan singing bowls for many purposes, including stress reduction and pain relief. Some people use the bowls in combination with other healing practices, such as meditation and deep breathing.

Many proponents claim that the vibrations of a singing bowl can produce beneficial changes in the body by reducing  stress, “harmonizing” the cells, and “balancing the body’s energy system.” Some also claim that Tibetan singing bowls can stimulate the immune system and produce beneficial changes in brain waves.

Very few scientific studies have examined the potential benefits of Tibetan singing bowls, despite their long history of use.

One of the available studies is a report from the Swiss journal Research in Complementary Medicine. For the study, 54 people with chronic pain originating from the spine were assigned to either six sessions of singing bowl therapy, a placebo treatment, or no treatment at all.

Study results showed that members of the singing bowl group and the placebo group experienced a significant decrease in pain intensity. The study’s authors also found that both the singing bowl therapy and the placebo therapy had a stress-reducing effect on participants.

Given these findings, the study’s authors concluded that singing bowl therapy’s effectiveness for pain relief could not be confirmed.

A preliminary study published in the American Journal of Health Promotionin 2014 examined the benefits of starting a directed relaxation session with 12 minutes of singing bowls and found a greater reduction in systolic blood pressure and heart rate compared to silence before a directed relaxation session.

Mindful Breathing

1x 25min per day

Read more...
The breath is always with you. When you practice meditation and breathing you gain a skill you can use whenever you need to quiet and clear the mind. Just following a few breaths—in and out, in and out—can relax the mind and body so you can calmly observe and respond to the world around you, rather than mindlessly reacting to events. Mindful breathing is a technique you can use not only during formal meditation, but also in your daily life. As you focus on your breath your thoughts settle down and your mind becomes calm and clear. What results is a feeling of contentment, happiness, and inner peace. Through meditation and breathing you will be better able to deal with life’s ups and downs without losing your equanimity.

Guided Meditation

1x 30min per day

Read more...
Guided meditation is simply one of the easiest ways to enter into a state of deep relaxation and inner stillness, and it’s one of the most powerful ways to eliminate stress and bring about positive personal changes.

Guided meditations can be experienced either in a class with the help of a meditation teacher, or by listening to a guided meditation recording.

Your meditation guide will ask you to sit comfortably and close your eyes. You then listen to your guide while they lead you through a series of relaxing visualizations. As you gradually relax and become more and more still, stress fades away, and your mind becomes clearer and clearer.

While you are in this deeply relaxed state of mind, your subconscious is open to positive suggestions, and your guide will use this time to take you on an inner journey that is designed to improve one or more aspects of your life. For example, a guided meditation might be tailored towards personal empowerment and positive thinking. Another might focus on emotional healing or spiritual development. You might be taken on a guided journey to unleash your full potential, or you may choose to go on a guided meditation journey simply for the sheer pleasure of experiencing profoundly deep relaxation

Vibrational Energy Session *

Acoustic Meridien Intelligence

Read more...

The AMI™ 750 is a user-friendly device based on the effectiveness of acoustic sound traveling the energy pathways of the meridian system to relax and support the body’s balance.

Sit in a comfortable chair and relax your feet on supportive gel pads while the body uptakes the sound frequencies through the feet. (each protocol is 30 minutes).

Science shows that the human body is a dynamic energy system and that out our cells, organs and tissues have their own vibratory nature. This natural, or resonant frequency can become upset or imbalanced, leading to pain, illness or disease. Cyma Technologies instruments are the culmination of over 50 years of research and development. Cyma Technologies has developed unique and internationally patented instruments that deliver precise combinations of frequencies associated with “healthy” tissue and organ systems. These sound waves help to normalize imbalances and synchronize the cells frequency back to its natural healthy state of vibrational resonance.

AMI™ 750 was a nominee in the 2013 Edison Awards.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
