BLUFFTON, S.C. (March 11, 2021) – Nestled in a lush, 20,000-acre nature preserve between Hilton Head Island and Savannah, Montage Palmetto Bluff is proud to present its inaugural Montage Well Living weekend, July 23-25, 2021. Created to enhance and inspire the pursuit of health, balance, mindfulness and connectivity, the three-day wellness retreat will offer a series of workshops, panels and discussions led by a curated roster of renowned speakers, healers and practitioners.

“At Montage Palmetto Bluff, our guests are always active – whether riding bicycles to navigate the property, walking the miles of trails or kayaking the waters, and through these activities, they prioritize their wellbeing and share unforgettable memories with loved ones,” said Casey Lavin, general manager at Montage Palmetto Bluff. “While this is part of our way of life, several of the practitioners that we recognize as leaders in the industry have not yet visited our region. By bringing Montage Well Living weekend to Montage Palmetto Bluff, we hope to start a greater conversation about the way of life we are choosing to live, connectivity and health.”

Further defining the resort’s commitment to inspire connectivity, the three-day and two-night Montage Well Living weekend at Montage Palmetto Bluff will feature New York Times bestselling author, Deepak Chopra, as keynote speaker. Guests are invited to join the world-renowned pioneer of integrative medicine and personal transformation as he discusses The Nature of Reality, inspired by his 90th book release, Metahuman, sharing the secrets to moving beyond our present limitations to access a field of infinite possibilities.

In addition to the regular schedule of events, Montage Well Living attendees have the option of joining Deepak Chopra for an intimate social hour and book signing following his keynote, as well as a seated, four-course dinner featuring a plant-based menu from Montage Palmetto Bluff Executive Chef Nathan Beriau and Café Gratitude’s Executive Chef Dreux Ellis, along with organic wine pairings.

The fully immersive wellness experience continues with a myriad of motivational panels, discussions and movement – including the opening talk featuring Dr. John Amaral, creator of the Energy Flow Formula. As a highly regarded wellness expert, Dr. John Amaral will also be leading studios on energetic flow and body connectivity. Other highlights include an interactive talk and meditation led by Ayurveda expert, Ashish Pandaya, and a group sound bath and meditation led by Tanya Colucci and Holly Ramey. Participants will have three breakout sessions, selecting from an array of studios and topics to include: The Works classes with Sarah Frick, Plant Based Palate with Chef Seizan Dreux Ellis, Food and Bio-Dynamic Farming with Christie and Will Tarleton and Art Therapy with Nashville-based artist, Amanda Norman.

Additional weekend highlights include a plant-based picnic lunch and community social hours, featuring plant-based bites, botanically infused cocktails and organic wine.
