Perched on a ridge at the head of a valley in the Umkomaas river system in KwaZulu-Natal, the Buddhist Retreat Centre looks out on a vista of indigenous valleys, forests, and rolling hills receding like waves in the blue distance. Here, for more than twenty years people of all religions have come to experience peace and tranquillity. It is a gentle, sympathetic space where one can be still and get in touch with oneself and reflect on the things that crowd one's life.
CNN featured the retreat as one of the ten finest meditation centers in the world. Paths threading the 300-acre property each bring their own revelation: follow the pine-scented path to the dam, walk past ancient cycads to the tracks of early Voortrekker wagons, discover an assegai-sharpening stone on a hillside, or point your feet towards the rocky outcrop that provides a perfect seat for contemplating the valley below.
Nearby are the breeding sites of the exquisite, but rare Blue Swallow of which the Endangered Wildlife Trust has appointed the BRC a custodian. Their presence, together with the BRC's commitment to encouraging the indigenous biodiversity of the area, has led to the Centre being declared a Natural Heritage Site by former President Nelson Mandela. The BRC is a birder's paradise, with more than 160 species recorded.
Integrated into this setting are the Centre's buildings, accommodation lodges and cottages, the dining room and office, a shop, a lecture and art studio, a library, and the meditation hall. The labyrinth, the Zen gardens, the deer park, and the Buddha Boma invite one in for reflection and contemplation.
This is a five days mindfulness, yoga, and wellness retreat to restore wellbeing and re-align your life. You will find out that if you take care of the present moment the future takes care of itself.
The gut, brain, and emotions are uniquely interconnected such that the gut is the main theater in which the drama of emotion plays out. Brain-gut disorders contribute towards dramatic affects ranging from aberrant gut reactions (like IBS, constipation, diarrhea, Crohn's), to hormonal and immune imbalances (autoimmune conditions, inflammation, depression, diabetes, obesity), and neurological diseases like autism, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.
The gut’s role as the second brain reveal new insights into managing mood that was previously the domain of Eastern practices. Today, a whole person approach of looking at the relationship between, mood, food, and the body is needed for a new mode of intervention.
