The Art of Living Retreat Center Hosts Inaugural Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Weekend April 3 to 5

Boone, N.C. – March 17, 2014 – The Art of Living Retreat Center (otherwise known as the Art of Living’s International Center for Meditation & Well-Being) invites those looking for an informative and empowering total health experience to join the inaugural Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Weekend April 3 to 5. With the majestic backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the serene, self-rejuvenating haven offered by the Art of Living Retreat Center, the immersive weekend will guide attendees as they start their journey to wholeness and balance. Lectures, evaluations and treatments will all focus on the ancient Indian health practices of Ayurveda, healing and prolonging life through diet, exercise, meditation and spa bodywork.

The weekend will be led by Dr. Thomas Mitchell, D.C., a Raleigh-based chiropractor who specializes in holistic and Ayurvedic treatments. With nearly 20 years of experience practicing Ayurveda, Dr. Mitchell is also a trained instructor for Art of Living Foundation meditation courses and one of the leading experts in Ayurvedic pulse assessments in both the United States and India.

Pulse diagnosis, the cornerstone diagnostic tool for Ayurvedic practices, includes monitoring an individual’s pulse to notice imbalances and early stages of various diseases. Dr. Mitchell will conduct these assessments and provide each attendee with personalized recommendations to “Eat Well, Feel Well and Be Well” based on their own unique needs.

“Ayurveda is the oldest and most relevant system of natural medicine,” said Dr. Mitchell. “Pulse assessments provide incredible insight into the body and help identify the best treatments and lifestyle choices to directly improve and prolong life. Together with the Art of Living Retreat Center and its Blue Heaven Spa, we will help Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Weekend guests achieve their best possible health.”

Each retreat attendee will receive three transformative spa treatments during their stay courtesy of Blue Heaven Spa at the Art of Living Retreat Center, one of the only Ayurvedic spas in North Carolina. Treatments restore balance, rejuvenating mind and body through massages customized for the individual based specifically on the findings from pulse diagnoses with Dr. Mitchell.

The three-day event will also include morning, afternoon and evening meditation sessions, yoga, Ayurvedic health lectures and a take-home Ayurvedic self-care kit. The Art of Living Retreat Center will provide a two-night stay in its peaceful spa suites as well as delicious Ayurvedic meals, incorporating fresh seasonal taste and texture to satisfy the five senses and promote a calm body and mind.

“Our vision is to become the North American spiritual epicenter for inner peace, personal transformation and service to humanity,” said Neil Srivastava, managing director of the Art of Living Retreat Center. “As part of that vision, we are thrilled to host the Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Weekend, the first of its kind at the Art of Living Retreat Center. Attendees with gain an incredible amount of self-awareness, empowering them to achieve balance and lead their best lives.”

The Art of Living Retreat Center opened in 2011 when the renowned Art of Living Foundation purchased a 381-acre property located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The Foundation, a global humanitarian organization founded by international spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, then restored the property and developed it into its first and only retreat center in the United States. Today, with its wide range of housing facilities, holistic spa, wholesome vegetarian cuisine, panoramic mountain views, serene meditation halls and powerful retreat offerings, the Art of Living Retreat Center is a refuge of self-renewal for its many visitors from around the world.
