Your Marvellous Mind: Finding Weightlessness Through Mental Wellbeing

The human Mind is a mysterious and marvellous thing. It is incredibly complex and governs nearly every process in our body — from memory, thought and emotion to movement, speech and sensation.


Despite vast advances in recent times, modern science is still unable to fully grasp and explain the workings of the brain. We can come to a more more well-rounded understanding of the Mind by expanding our knowledge with ancient yogic science.

The Mind Pillar


The Mind is one of the Four Pillars of JOALI BEING — our unique approach to wellbeing. Unfortunately, this vital pillar often gets overlooked because it is largely invisible and intangible.


Given that it controls so much of our physical and mental reality, the brain can make or break our quality of life. As the World Health Organization has correctly stated: “Mental health is an integral part of health; indeed, there is no health without mental health.”


The Mind is responsible for thinking, feeling and making choices, as well as directing our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing. By nurturing the Mind, we can enhance how we express ourselves, handle stress and relate to others. We can also build trust in our intuition, which elevates the spirit and deepens its connection with our Higher Self.


At our wellbeing island, we see the Mind as a pathway to the Joy of Weightlessness — a sense of freedom, lightness and wonder.


Mind Matters at JOALI BEING


JOALI BEING offers a variety of experiences to nurture the brain and protect its wellbeing. Our expert team creates an apt environment for guests to understand, support and reset their Mind Pillar through a personalised journey.


In general, spending time in nature is a wonderful way to nourish and uplift the Mind. Designed according to biophilic principles, our island retreat centres the gifts of Mother Earth. Come, dance under the palms, talk to the ocean, and find your place in the sunshine.


You can also cultivate contentment and inner peace through meditation, mindful movement, yogic breathwork and sound therapy.

Strengthening the Mind Pillar is helpful for those struggling with anxiety, facing challenging situations, battling sleep issues, experiencing mental health problems, or feeling emotionally vulnerable.


The above experiences are also good for anyone who simply wants to disconnect from the stresses of modern life and devote some quality time to relaxing, rejuvenating and evolving.


Mind is a Path to Weightlessness


Negative thoughts carry their own weight, burdening you with feelings like stress, sadness, anger or resentment. By healing and strengthening your Mind Pillar, you can free yourself of such burdens and experience the Joy of Weightlessness.


A healthy Mind is resilient. It is better equipped to navigate the challenges of life. It prepares you to handle the unpredictable and come out on the other side, still standing. With this newfound confidence and acceptance, you discover a remarkable weightlessness. Feeling light, free and inspired, you are perfectly poised to embrace the adventure ahead of you.
