In Paris, a loft style space has been converted into a technology-free haven for those seeking a quiet space to go inwards and reconnect with themselves - much like what we do when we practice yoga. SEYMOUR+ is a place to go without internet, cell phones or other external distractions and outside influences. SEYMOUR+ encourages a space that allows you to access your own thoughts, imagination and intuition, a place to reconnect with yourself and cultivate creative self-expression.
When you arrive at SEYMOUR+ you are asked to place all computers, cell phones, books, and magazines in a provided locker before entering the space. There are 5 interactive environments, which are inspired by the creative process.
1| Selfie Booth
Encourages self-exploration, grounding and centering
2| Projection Room
Encourages the release of stress and tension and calms the mind
3| Wish You Were Here
Encourages the communication of thoughts and emotions
4| Surf Your Mind Lounge
Encourages subconscious exploration, brainstorming, fresh ideas
5| The Secret Garden
Encourages contemplation, noticing and listening
In each space, you are given a pencil and paper and suggestion on how to interact and engage with the space, but ultimately it is the person who decides how to utilize the space to work for them. SEYMOUR+ created the space to help visitors go through a process that leads to greater confidence, stronger intuition, enhanced communication and anxiety and stress relief. The process helps visitors bring their subconscious thoughts to consciousness, and essentially encourages visitors to tap into their authentic self.
We like this creative approach as a way to help people access their inner truth, their innate being and authentic self. So if you are in Paris this weekend, do check out SEYMOUR+ and embrace this creative internal exploration. For those of us who won't be heading to Paris this weekend ;) , try taking some time to disconnect from your phone, computer and so on, and create your own environment that nourishes your inner self.
