The Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, Chiang Mai, has launched a new Wellness Retreat, designed to offer guests the chance to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect.

Available from August 2008 through February 2009, Reconnecting with Your Inner-Self is a six-day/seven-night retreat devised by the hotels Director of Wellness, Jennifer Simms, that will incorporate group workshops, one-on-one sessions, specialised treatments, healthy spa cuisine, local cultural events and daily wellness activities such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, mantra chanting and spiritual exercises.

It is my deepest wish to connect body, mind and spirit, integrating all my knowledge from all different levels of my studies. When a human being understands himself deeply he is able to create his unique path to fulfil life at its best, explains Dr Muller-Rupprecht.
