Cromlix Kindness Retreat

Kindness at Cromlix

Friday 11th March 2022

Join us for a unique event discovering the effect of kindness on the brain and body with Dr David Hamilton at Cromlix Hotel.

Cromlix is a fine country estate situated in lovely countryside surrounded by its own woodland and fields. The house incorporates 15 bedrooms, 5 of which are suites, Billiard Room, Bar, Lounge and Drawing Room and of course a Chez Roux dining experience.

We wish to welcome you to our Kindness Retreat which will include a light lunch on arrival, afternoon activity of either a massage or yoga class to start your kindness journey on the mind and body, followed by an exquisite dining experience in our Chez Roux restaurant with guest speaker Dr David Hamilton.

David will teach you how the mind-body connection works. You’ll learn how belief impacts the brain and body and how mindfulness works out brain regions. David will also show how visualisation can shape brain networks to bring about a physically enhancing effect on the body, and how this is effectively used in sport and even in rehabilitation following a stroke.

You will also learn about the discovery of the surprising effect of kindness on the brain and body, like how it neutralises stress, improves mental health, improves muscle health, protects the heart, and even slows ageing. As well as in daily life, this has potential implications for competitive sport as kindness impacts key brain regions associated with stress and mood

David is a former R&D scientist, having developed drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer with one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. He’s now a best-selling author of 11 books that explore the science of kindness, the mind-body connection, and self-esteem.

Yoga will be available between 2pm and 5pm on your day of arrival; join Dr Laura McCrimmon to unwind and de-stress. Alternatively our on-site therapist will be available for an in-room massage.  Activities to be confirmed at time of booking to avoid disappointment.

Rates quoted are all per room and are inclusive of all meals and activities within the one-night package outlined above, incl VAT.
