Andrew Weil will sail on a different Seabourn ship each year.
Seabourn said it will create a living program in partnership with its spa operator, Steiner, and
integrative medicine pioneer Dr. Andrew Weil.
The Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil program
will be launched on the inaugural cruise of the Seabourn Encore in January.
Weil is a Harvard-trained physician known for
incorporating alternative therapies such as nutritional supplements, meditation
and “spiritual” strategies into conventional treatment plans. He blogs for the
Huffington Post and has appeared on TV shows such as “Larry King Live,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and
Seabourn said central to the new program is
the daily practice of meditation and yoga through a selection of complimentary
sessions. Guests can experience Mindful Meditation, which will introduce
positive affirmations and mantras they can reflect on throughout the day.
After debuting on Encore, the program will be rolled out to the other
Seabourn ships in 2017 and on the Encore’s sister ship, Seabourn Ovation, in
Weil will sail on a different Seabourn ship each year where he will deliver a
60-minute lecture for guests and will lead smaller informal group discussions.
