During an inspiring weekend, guests staying at Patina Maldives, Fari Islands from 2-3 June will explore new paths to emotional, physical, and intellectual harmony, from traditional spiritual practices to the rapidly developing frontiers of biohacking. The two-day 'Experience as Healing' journey, which coincides with the resort's second anniversary, is the first in a new Pathways: Halo series of events that aims to inspire and nurture long-lasting personal transformations, habitualize new lifestyle practices, and give visitors' lives more depth and intention.
'Experience as Healing' will bring together experts in psychosocial health, nutritional science, and esoteric practices and will include both complimentary programming and premium individualized sessions. It will inspire both seasoned yogis and curious dabblers to unfold, unfurl, and open the hidden doors within in search of transformative healing. The all-access program, which is offered for free to resort visitors, begins with a sound healing ritual and 'Learning to Breathe' session. LA-based sound meditation and breathwork practitioner Avery Whitmore encourages participants to ground, reorient, and reattune themselves to their natural rhythms of breathing.
The award-winning ambassador for positive drinking, Claire Warner, will host a welcoming event where she will encourage attendees to explore non- and low-alcohol beverages. Visitors who are willing to adopt a new way of living for health, cultural, or religious reasons will develop the self-assurance and drive to value natural ingredients, ethical production practices, and health advantages in addition to more traditional factors. Other highlights of the weekend include morning yoga, individualized 'My Pathways' workshops, and unique group dining experiences like a plant-based brunch at Patina Maldives' namesake restaurant, Roots. With the help of digital wellness expert and global healthcare futurist Tony Estrella, visitors may also discover how to unleash their creativity while learning about the art, science, and cutting-edge approaches to improved sleep.
According to Antonio Saponara, general manager of Patina Maldives, Fari Islands, "This inaugural event marks an ambitious evolution of the overall guest experience at Patina Maldives; an opening up of myriad interconnected journeys that weave through signature Pathways: Halo events, an enriching cycle of Collaborations with visiting specialists, and perennial weekly resort activities."
"We were far more in tune when technology wasn't interfering with our bodies' natural rhythms when we lived by the seasons, by the sun, and by the moon. Breathwork, a technique of controlled breathing that has its roots in the old yogic exercise of Pranayama, is an illustration and practice that is becoming more and more popular. Jinou Park, the creative director of the 'Experience as Healing' event, continues, "In the higher state of mind, we climb toward a more energizing universe, taking on a universal perspective. The idea that experience may be used as medicine—medicine that can ground, reorient, and heal—is gaining ground.
