Lansdowne, VA (Vocus) December 8, 2008
Lansdowne Resort, located in the heart of Virginia's wine country, just 25 miles from Washington, D.C., has designed a unique retreat to start the New Year with the right tools and mindset. The Path to Mediterranean Wellness showcases the ease and luxury of the Mediterranean culture of wellness, embracing a holistic approach to the life well lived: stress reduction, a cooking demonstration, sumptuous foods, learning sessions and daily recreational activities, February 27 - March 1, 2009.
The retreat will be lead by renowned neuroscientist Will Clower, Ph.D., whose passion and energy infuse the wellness topic with knowledge acquired during his two year research stint in France where he studied the cultural habits of the thin, healthy French people. Clower was intrigued enough to write the highly praised cultural comparison, The Fat Fallacy.
Dr. Clower's breakthrough work has been featured on The View with Barbara Walters, CBS's Up To The Minute and ABC News, plus USA Today, New York Times, Readers' Digest, and Cosmopolitan Magazine. His work has also garnered recommendations by luminaries such as Julia Child, Peter Mayle, Dr. Dean Edell, and Susan Loomis.
This inspiring Lansdowne Resort event is ideal for couples or for girlfriend getaways and can create a focal point for optimal health. After all, indulgence can be habit forming!
The Path to Mediterranean Wellness Package is priced at $489 per person based on double occupancy ($609 for single occupancy) and includes accommodations for two nights, meals (Friday welcome reception, three meals on Saturday, Sunday brunch), a $50 spa credit, gift bag and web-based follow-up with Dr. Clower's office.
Guests will leave Lansdowne Resort with all the tools they need to live well every day. An online, interactive platform will allow guests to maintain contact with Dr. Clower and each other afterwards, enabling a forum for mutual support.
