Mindfulness & Art Cambodian Retreat



Angkor Wat and Surrounds

This is a one week adventure in mindfulness practice with a tour group in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It is the home of the Angkor Wat World Heritage Area. Discover temples, cultural experiences, Khmer BBQ foods, and delights at the many markets in the township.

After a brief introductory workshop, the rest of the retreat will involve practicing mindfulness individually and as part of the group at various locations. Art therapy will be offered as a part of the program.

The group will be visiting the Artisans Craft workshops and Silk Factory which produces fine products that are sold in their on site shop.
