The retreats are organised by the Institute of Mindfulness and Transpersonal Psychology (Spain), delivered across Europe and UK.

The Institute’s centre in Spain itself has a number of onsite resident experts, including researchers, specialists and practitioners of mindfulness, accupuncture, TCM, homeopathy and transpersonal psychologists.

This transformative retreat is facilitated by mindfulness teacher and Gurmat transpersonal psychology specialist Dav Panesar together with Angie, Gustavo, Nur and Richie at the Institute).

Dav has managed to integrate his education in science, consciousness studies and transpersonal psychology with his considerable experience of over 20 years as a mindfulness practitioner and a life style grounded in authenticity and holistic self-growth.

His ground breaking research in Gurmat psychology, (Psychology of the Enlightened) has managed to successfully develop life-transformative retreats and programs founded on mindfulness & compassion based approaches in individual health, well being, self-development, self-growth towards self-actualisation and self-realisation.

Dav has been organising and running retreats in Spain and UK for many years. Dav is perhaps the first mindfulness researcher and teacher to combine mindfulness and transpersonal psychology towards a more complete sense of well being and harmony with self, others, nature and beyond.
