It can take courage to step into a retreat like this. Transformation, whether in families or as individuals, requires a willingness to look within, to be vulnerable, and to challenge yourself. In this, we are here to support you, and to hold a space of acceptance while offering the attention needed for you to go deep. If you are ready to take this journey and perhaps change the trajectory of the course of your family’s life, then we look forward to having you join us at one of our next retreats!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where and when will the retreats be held and what is the investment for my family?
At Home In The World Family Retreats is embarking on an exclusive series of intimate online family retreats that will take place over 10 days commencing in November 2021. The investment for your entire family is $4884 USD (parents + all children incl.), or $3663 USD for single parent families (parent + all children incl.). This will allow us to cover all our costs and hold the space for your family’s needs.
How do I know this retreat is for my family?
That depends. Is your family at the point where you no longer wish to go back to living the life you have been living up until now? Do you have that inner sense that this moment in time is perhaps the greatest opportunity for you and your family to reimagine what it could be like to be living together coherently and to the fullest? Are you prepared to ask the challenging questions of yourselves, together? Are you prepared to look into the depths of who you are and be ready to potentially let go of the greater part of everything you have believed to be true about yourselves, society and the way the world is? If so, then this event has been intentionally created for you and your family’s needs. You should consider securing your family’s place for this limited series of engagements.
Why is there only a small group of Families invited to attend?
At Home In The World Family Retreats are intentionally created to be an intimate gathering of families. This is so that we can do our best to facilitate an environment that is both optimal for learning for the families who attend and so that we can provide the most personalized and focused attention to the families in attendance. This is even more relevant when applying this approach to our online version of our retreat. In small intimate groups (max. 8 families), we can strive to ensure that each family’s experience will be one where their needs and requirements are able to met with attention, empathy and the support necessary for them to achieve the transformations that they are all striving for. If a family is interested in attending, as a team, we work to ensure that all participant families will have the opportunity to add their own unique stories to the group story. This is with the active intention that each family will bring something unique that will enrich all of the group and the experiences that we have together.
What can I expect if I am one of the families attending?
You can expect this retreat to be a learning adventure, which over the course of 10 days, is intended to take you and your family through an exciting, interactive and engaging set of intentionally created games, mini-workshops, meditations and roundtable exercises that are specifically designed and curated to empower you with a self-guided framework towards personal and familial coherence and transformation. We will work with you before the event begins, to ensure that our families will mutually benefit to the maximum potential of the experience.
I’ve never been to an online retreat, what differences can I expect?
Is this a Religious Retreat?
At Home In The World Family Retreats are a secular – non religious gathering, that is not affiliated with any institutions or organizations, religious or otherwise. Our values are to respect all life, all beliefs and cultures equally. Our gathering is based on our integrated Adult and Child Framework of Learning, with the tools and process necessary to allow all our attendee families to arrive at their own personal realisations of transformation, which are uniquely meaningful to them. We aim to facilitate a gathering and environment where all participants are cared for and feel safe to share and learn together.
Are there any pre-requisites I need to do to attend your retreats?
There are no pre-requisites of learning or qualifications that any families wishing to attend need have. We do ask that you register your intention to attend by making a time to speak with us personally to discuss your situation. This is an informal get-to-know-you chat online for you to meet our team. Here, you can ask any questions or share any concerns that you might have, while we all get the opportunity to see if this the right fit for us all. Once we have had this opportunity, you are in a position to decide for you and your family whether you would like to proceed with your intention to attend the retreat. At this time, we will ask for a deposit or payment, dependent on how close we are to the retreat, to secure your family’s place.
Is this a safe environment for my family and I to share our very personal familial situation?
Yes, absolutely! We hold the personal well-being and confidentiality of your family’s experience in the highest regard and care. We also have come to learn that this journey, when taken together with other families experiencing similar or resonant experiences, only adds to the richness of what you and your family will learn together, and how, as a community of similar families, you will all grow together.
To ensure we have a complementing and inspirational mix of families in attendance, we work with each family prior to the day of the event to ensure that we all have a good mutual understanding of each other’s situations and expectations.
It is our sincerest intention to create a space for each family to feel the most empowered in their own journey towards inner and familial coherence.
