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 please reach out by signing up for our email list, and we will send you more detail on what you can expect to receive. We look forward to having you join us at one of our next retreats!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
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. In small intimate groups, 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 group and the experiences that we have together.
How often do you hold your retreats?
We are currently only offering this experience once a year at this time, generally in the first two weeks of July. Our current location is in Transylvania, Romania, and while we have held retreats in the past in other locations, such as Bali, we are not intending at this point to add more retreat times throughout the year. Our Retreat experience is a very personal and immersive experience on many levels, for all the families participating, include our own. We have found that to live with more intention and authenticity, the balance, direction and story that we are advocating for your family, in our integrated learning program, has to be matched by the way we live too. This is why on an emotional, physical and energetic level, at the moment, we find we are able to invest ourselves wholly once a year presently. We have discussed the option of how we could solve this challenge to meet the demands for more retreats and we trustfully will share a solution shortly that will allow us to add more retreats, as necessary.
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 require that you register your intention to attend by signing up through our website here and filling in our Pre-Registration forms. Once we receive this, we will get in touch with you to arrange 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.
