Join OMC in one of the most beautiful places on Earth: El Chalten, Argeninta in the Andean Mountains!
Miatri and Mindfulness: Patagonia, Argentina March 14-19, 2017
Far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, we will have the opportunity to enjoy the spirit of nature and dive fully into a mindfulness experience like no other. The focus of this retreat will be cultivating Miatri, or self-compassion and friendliness, using mindfulness tools and practices. Using the natural beauty of mountains, rivers, lakes, glaciers, and forests, we’ll use the magnificent outdoors to focus on and create mirrors for our inner beauty, compassion, and potential in us all. We will focus on finding our inner wisdom, inner peace, moving through barriers to loving ourselves fully, and the path of radical acceptance that allows deep, unwavering Miatri. The time has come to be your happiest self. There is no other place to start, continue, or enhance your self-discovery journey than in Patagonia with a group of others on a similar mission to cultivating Miatri.

Itinerary March 14 we will leave from El Calafate and arrive at Aguas Arriba Lodge in El Chalten. It is recommended that you arrive to El Calafate 1-3 days prior to March 14. This will allow you time to explore El Calafate and take part in a trekking of the Merino Glacier, as well as give you a buffer in case there are any travel delays. We will meet in El Calafate on March 14 and together go to the Aguas Arriba Lodge in El Chalten. March 15-18 we will have full days at Aguas Arriba Lodge in El Chalten. We will start our days with mindfulness practices that include movement and meditation, as well as instruction related to mindfulness and miatri. Depending on the weather and recommendations of the guides at Aguas Arriba Lodge, we will spend part of the day time engaging in adventures in the outdoors. In the evening we will have time for reflecting together on the day, additional mindfulness and miatri instruction, and personal “assignments.” We will do our best to also include time for rest and relaxation each day. Time for restoring and reflection will be important on this inner and outer adventure! March 19 we will depart from Aguas Arriba Lodge in the morning. If you plan to fly out of El Calafate on March 19, please make any flights reservations for late afternoon or evening. *We strongly recommend you plan to arrive in El Calafate 1-3 days early to assure that travel delays do not disrupt you joining the program.
