TECH-FREE RETREAT

come turn off.
We offer an unplugged and natural human experience. Join this movement of Interpersonal and Intrapersonal resolution by eliminating the noise and distraction of modern life. Connect with yourself as well as colleagues in the cohort in a more meaningful manner.

Unplug & Refresh

It is a common response to press through the stressful parts of life and put in amazing amounts of work. What is offered at the Tech-Free Retreat is a fully supported opportunity for you to turn off from ALL the distractions that keep us from being present and refreshed from even our best versions of self-care: a massage,  a local yoga class, our 'me' moments at the salon or barbershop, etc. Sometimes it's not enough to put your computer to 'sleep'. At Tech-Free Retreat, we turn off.

Our experts guide retreaters in gatherings that offer techniques to reset the body, come to healthy terms with technology and its place in daily living and ultimately retreaters are guided to connect with one's own freedom and power.

 

As a result, retreaters leave with a greater capacity to breathe and turn technology back on without being run by that technology. 

 TECH-FREE  APPROACH: THE FAST

Fasting is one of the most powerful physio-spiritual disciplines. Periodic fasts from food are required for the body to take a break, and finish processing the food and waste. Technology mimics food in the way we over do it whether out of 'need' or for pleasure. The result has been a disconnect and stagnation of our brain, body, and connection to our true nature. For 48 hours we will fast from technology.  You will gain 48 hours of uninterrupted focus that will begin to activate and increase your attention span, and give your brain time to actually move from the conscious mind to long-term memory formation: your ability to remember and process information. 

TECH-FREE APPROACH: THE FEAST

HABITS ARE FORMED IN THE MIND THROUGH A REPETIVE EXPERIENCE WITH THE FEELING OF AN ACT. FOR 48 HOURS WE WILL CONNECT YOU INTENTIONALLY WITH HIGH IMPACT ACTIVITES THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO COOK UP THE PERFECT FEAST. -GATHERING HEALTHY INFORMATION -PUTTING THE KNOWLEDGE GAINED INTO PRACTICE -AND FINALLY TAKING IN EVERYTHING THE RETREAT HAS TO GIVE.

DO YOU NEED A TECH FREE RETREAT?

  • Do you find your method of daily decompression is watching informative or fun TV, scrolling social media, or listening to your favorite song on your ipod or sound system?

  • Did you engage through your technology more than with a person physically in your presence.

  • Do you spend more time thinking than doing? Are you a processor?

  • Do your devices make you feel less overwhelmed and less socially awkward because: you can put the kids on a device, you can ease over an argument by sitting and watching tv, and/or you can do busy work on your phone when confronted with being in a room full of strangers.

  • Are you a great multitasker? 

If you answered yes to ANY of the above questions please give yourself this experience.

 

We live in a digital age! The computer is our work tool, the TV is our source of escape and enjoyment, the phone gives us access to information in an unprecedented way, and gaming is our babysitter...look technology is a way of life.

No matter who you are this Tech Free Retreat is ideal for your healthy existence.
