How will you feel when you find clarity?

Imagine how incredible it would feel if you woke up knowing that each day of your life you will better enjoy the ups and more easily handle the downs. When you find clarity, you’ll feel more prepared for whatever challenges might face  you. When you find clarity you will be more powerful and better able to steer your life in the direction you want it to go. Clarity is a clean up.

The more clear you are about your priorities the easier it is to live your life according to you. Why wouldn’t you want to live a life that feels good, right, and on purpose?

With clarity comes a positive shift in your self-image and self-esteem. The immediate result is an expanding sense of freedom. Find clarity and benefit from a powerful confidence boost. “Not enough” and “I can’t” aren’t obstacles any longer so that you begin doing things you never thought yourself capable of or gave yourself permission to try. How effective you are is essentially determined by your level of clarity and balance.

Clarity provides both the joy and the courage required to live with absolutely no regrets.

My journey from confusion to clarity

“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.” — MIGUEL KIRJON, Owner

What is included and how does it work?

Our approach to find clarity? 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

2x 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 Massage

1x 60min per stay

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.

Good Sleep with 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®.

Yoga

1x 60min per day

Read more...
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. Yoga is for everyone.

Qi Gong

1x 45min per day

Read more...
Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention to open blockages in the body based on the same meridian system used in acupuncture. The movements are fairly easy to learn and allow access to everyone. To begin to benefit from Qigong you do not have to be fit, you don’t have to be flexible; you don’t even have to be able to stand up. The exercises can be modified for almost anyone with patience that wants to learn.

Sometimes Qigong and Tai Chi are called a moving meditation in which the mind and body are led to a state of balance and equilibrium also known as homeostasis. A Harvard medical publication said it should also be called “moving medication.” The advantages of improving strength, flexibility and balance are pretty obvious but the advantages of peace that comes from the moving flowing meditative aspect of Qigong and Tai Chi are equally important.

When the body is in a state of balance all the systems work better.

Mindful Breathing

1x 30min 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.

Chanting

1x 30min per day

Read more...

Chanting is a sound repeated with intention to transmit a certain frequency. By repeating these seed syllables, we begin to vibrate from the inside out, becoming quite literally our own tuning fork. This frequency bypasses our human limitations and allows us to see through the illusions of the world with greater clarity.

Cultures throughout time have honored sound not simply as an auditory boon to humanity, but as something deeper, more sublime, which can lead us into union with the cosmos.

Chanting is the key to transcendence, for it offers us an opportunity to unite with God, to create the sacred sounds which allow us to craft our own reality. The decadence of its simplicity is just that — chanting, making sound, becoming a human singing bowl, requires neither great skill nor valiant effort. Sound is our most treasured right — to sing, to connect, to harmonize our voices with all that is. To be like God, we must only chant. It is our divine birthright and our greatest of untapped human powers.

 

Organic Vegan Cuisine

ALL MEALS AND BEVERAGES ARE INCLUDED

Over the past few years, the popularity of “plant-based eating” has risen enormously. The idea of vegan lifestyles has also become more popular, due to a whole host of celebrities championing the vegan lifestyle. Harper’s Bazaar tells us that a wealth of research proves that fruits and vegetables are good for us — from reducing the risk of certain cancers to improving heart health and even helping maintain a healthy weight. Among science-based health benefits, eating a whole-food vegan diet plays a supporting role in losing excess weight, lowering blood sugar levels, protects from certain types of cancer, improves kidney function and lowers the risk of heart disease suggests Health Line.

Valerie loves to play music by request and tailor classes to the needs and preferences of students. Expect a few very challenging poses, lots of choice of variations, and to leave feeling accomplished, wondering how the time passed so quickly.

“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.
