M IS FOR MEDITATION
“Gym membership for the mind” is big business. Apps such as Calm, Buddhify, and Headspace are easy ways to dip your toe in the Zen waters, but if you don’t want to use technology to help break away from technology (oh, the irony), try Kechara Forest Retreat, a 35-acre centre that holds monthly sessions of Inner Peace Retreat in the lush tropical rainforest of Bentong, Pahang. Escape the chaos of the city, zone out, and feel the surge of nature’s energy as you rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul. www.retreat.kechara.com
