At Home in the World Retreat – Family Retreats2024-05-17T02:44:48+00:00

How are our retreats different?

At Home In The World Family Retreats are our flagship offering. As a family, we have invested the greater part of the last two decades of our lives into their development and refinement. There is perhaps no other family retreat quite like this one on the planet. Why is this so? Well, unlike other retreats, where their program is usually sold as a magical pill for resolving your problems, in our retreat, you alone are the inspiration, contemplation and action for your own transformation.

Our 8 Day experience ensures you gain the strength of realisation that the power of all transformation comes from within. You and your family are the only ones with the necessary thoughts, feelings and actions to transform your lives.

What we offer, which is unique, is the skilled mastery of facilitating your journey, of meticulously creating and holding the necessary space for you and providing our framework, setting and environment for your family to build your own roadmap to a more deeply connected, coherent, loving and fulfilling family life. By the end of the experience, you will become the master architect and chief engineer of your own family’s transformation.

This is what we promise!

The point of our retreats

  • Become clearer about the opportunities of realizing a deeper family connection to carry you through your journey of life together, and how to embrace the adventure.
  • Resolve intergenerational familial traumas that may be weighing you down and preventing you from realizing your greatest potential as a family.
  • Learning to tune into your inner powers so you can be more confident in following your inner wisdom.
  • Craft your own family story and vision…taking the past to create the future, giving momentum and focus to your mission, journey and purpose.
  • Developing your capacity to handle new challenges and opportunities, aligning your, mental, emotional and physical resilience, and grow toward the transformation and coherence your family has been longing for.
  • Gaining the practical knowledge to thrive so you can be At Home With Yourself,  At Home With Your Family and At Home In The World.

So WHY join us?

  • Because you don’t have to do this alone.
  • Because you want to deepen the bonds between you and your family and you’re willing to priorities the investment in yourselves needed to achieve this.
  • Because you’re prepared to rewrite and live your own story to its greatest potential.
  • Because your family’s journey together is crucial for the future of the world.
  • Because you want to enjoy the benefits of a supportive community of families who share empathy and commitment to each other’s journeys.
  • Because you want to benefit from the experience of facilitators who have dedicated their lives to living and practicing this vision together with their families
  • Because you’ll come away with the tools, experience, framework and resilience required to face any challenge together as a coherent loving family.

Imagine letting go of the fears, anxiety, and uncertainty around how you can generate a more joyful, meaningful, and enriching life together, while FINALLY feeling empowered to create different possibilities for your family, – a life well beyond what you are living today.

Location

Our locations are unmatched in their enchantment…

Wherever in the world our retreats are held, it is our wish to gift your family an experience you will remember for a life-time. The location is just as much intended to be an immersion of the senses, as it is to be a transformational learning experience. Cultural immersion in the environment, experiencing a deep level of integration with the local peoples and the richness of their customs, is paramount. All locations have connection to nature and are away from the hustle of daily life, even when we are in urban environs. Everything is blended with functionality and facilitating the most optimal setting for the outcomes of our learning experience, while infusing charm and comfort with a great mix of onsite activities.

With unparalleled locations, like Transylvania, Bali, Vietnam, and Mexico, we will always have something extraordinary on offer for your family to experience.

The Cuisine

We have carefully crafted a menu with an array of local delicacies and fusion cuisines, utilizing all the benefits of having locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables for your health and well-being.

Our menu is designed to energize you and leave your body and mind in a healthful state, while providing a tantalizing and unique locally inspired culinary dining experience. In this is included vegetarian, vegan, and raw options, to enliven your senses and enhance your experience.

Should you have any specific dietary requirements or concerns, we are more than happy to discuss these with you.

The Wonders

One of our most successful retreat locations has been Transylvania, a region steeped in mystery and beauty, too often completely misunderstood for all the wrong reasons. It has actually been home to many nationalities, including the iconic Székely Hungarian people, of whom we are always welcomed guests. It is also the birthplace of Bobi Kaponay, one of your facilitators.

Today, Transylvania is still a little known treasure of Central Europe, as yet undiscovered by hoards of tourists and a jewel of a destination for our retreats. Its natural beauty accentuates the excursions and local activities we have planned, all resulting in a complete and immersive native Transylvanian Experience.

When in Transylvania our activities have included…Visiting the surrounding forests and learning of their management and how to sustainably harvest their bounties, along with their medicinal treasures. We have picked mushrooms fresh from the forest and cooked them into a traditional Hungarian Mushroom Paprikás in a cauldron over an open flame and served them with freshly made Nokedli.

Making our own traditional Székely Potato Bread from scratch. As warmly welcomed guests in a local village home, we have mixed and kneaded ingredients by hand in a traditional wooden trough. We then baked the bread in the home clay brick oven, built by the very hands of local artesian baker Maria.

We then took the pleasure of cutting our own freshly baked bread and sharing it, richly coated in home made local dips like, Zakuszka, Vinete (local Babaganush) and home made jams, to create an experience to truly savour.

The 1000 Székely Girl Festival…

…is the iconic and signature cultural gathering event of the year, held atop the natural and beautiful mountain knoll overlooking Csíkszereda below.

This festival embodies the essence and meaning behind the Székely People’s culture and if our retreat is in Transylvania you and your family may well get to experience this first hand.

Young men and women wake with the dawn to make the journey from their villages. Drawn by horse-drawn-cart, they sing their local folksongs along the way, savouring the traditions of their cultural heritage.

This is a day of festivities that includes singing, dancing, culinary delights and the celebration of locally hand-made arts and crafts.

We trust the day will leave you with a cultural and life experience you will always want to remember.

Cultural Immersion

Our experiential approach to cultural immersion will take us on a journey rich in story, dance, music, and artesian culture that defines not only a region, but tells the living story of its people.

No matter what region our retreat is held, all of our retreat going families will get to experience something that not many visitors get to live when visiting the countries we hold our retreats in. We have crafted a balance of the extraordinary, meaningful, fun, and interactive.

Our nights will be lit by a traditional bonfire or we will gather together, where the sharing of stories, telling of tales, singing, and playing of games are all part of the experience.

Whether in Transylvania, Vietnam, Mexico or some other exotic location, there will be many opportunities for us to interact with and learn from the local people. Our journey of appreciation will take us deep into the heart of the significance and meaning behind our hosts’ local traditions, and the purpose and effect these traditions have in creating and maintaining the strength of community.

All of this will culminate with your very own practical immersion, taking part in traditional dance, arts and cultural crafts, appreciating and integrating the stories and wisdoms of the local people with your very own stories. At the end of the journey you too will have contributed your own unique offering and taken with you, a living piece of the location’s energy home with you in your heart…a perfect EnergeticXChange.

This sounds amazing! I want to Pre-Register please!

Our Retreat Learning Experience

So what can you expect from 8 enriching days (and 8 peaceful nights) learning, exploring, and connecting with your family and new friends on an adventurous and immersive retreat journey?

Well, what if you got the opportunity to challenge yourselves, potentially more than you ever have before, where the result would be to create and live the most fulfilling life you could all live together.

And what would it mean to you if you were inspired by those around you, if you gained the necessary tools, and the connections to bring your vision to reality, all while deepening the bonds between you and your children, creating a path for life-long growth, learning and adventure?

Would THAT make it worthwhile coming to our At Home In The World Family Retreat?

Please keep in mind: this is a family retreat like no other. This is an immersive, fully-participatory retreat, coherently inspired and completely integrated in its learning between adults and children. You and your family will be inspired to do the work together. We simply create the environment, provide the framework and hold space for you to explore together some of the deepest questions about what it means to create and be a loving coherent family. 

As we travel throughout the week, everything is intentionally curated for you to take a transformative journey, where you can safely express, experiment, integrate and transcend long-held patterns which may have prevented you all from reaching your greatest trajectory as a family. We explore inter-generational familial traumas and the sub-conscious and unconscious effects they have had on our lives. You will get to the heart of addressing these traumas and disentangling yourselves from their repetitive patterns.

We tap into core inner powers and wisdoms that allow you to come face-to-face with your true powers of creation, attraction, and manifestation, to bring to life the story of your dreams. Then we put it all together and put it to the test, creating clear cut actions, litmus tested by your peer families, who will hold you accountable to bringing to life the vision of your dreams. This is how powerful and practical this once-in-a-lifetime experience is.

Our learning experience has been refined and tested over the course of nearly two decades of living it as a family and working with many families throughout the world. It is intentionally meant to take you on a journey from the high-level practical, to the grounded depths of emotional resilience, integrating coherence, intuition, wisdom, story creation, and manifestation all through a series of relatable games, roundtables, interactive group sessions, mini-workshops and meditative practices, that will take you all on your own journey towards becoming a loving and coherent family.

Our children’s program is also fully integrated to engage and inspire your children so that play, laughter, thoughtfulness and an integrated conscious approach is taken with every activity. Led in a way that treats your children as equal stakeholders in the process, your children, like you, will leave with new friends, new connections and a yearning desire for a more fulfilling life together as a family.

FUNDAMENTALY…

Together we will focus on:

  • Practicing the art of tuning into your inner wisdom through a fun family game to help determine clear direction and hone your family’s True North.
  • Getting clear on how each member of your family envisions your future and how you will bring together everyone’s needs to create a powerful family story as your road map.
  • The vital role nutrition and well-being play in our overall family harmony.
  • Utilizing our Familial Disentangle game, to help you relieve and resolve intergenerational traumas which have been unconsciously affecting every thought, feeling and action in your lives .
  • Exploring how lifelong, experiential, inspiration-led, in the moment learning can change the way your family see the world and empower your children to see their place in it.
  • Acknowledging your place in the universe – the power you have to collapse existing fearful timelines, to create joyful and fulfilling, coherent, lives together.

After the Retreat

We will continue the journey along with you. It is always our intention to ensure that what you have experienced and what you have learned during the retreat will not be lost when you return to daily life. We are committed to helping facilitate a post-retreat experience for you and your family that is intended to assist you in establishing the ongoing practices necessary for you to realize your dream family life.

It is also our intention to keep active and alive the friendship and connections that you will make, and to support and facilitate the needs of this newly formed community that we trust will naturally develop. To this end, we have create just for you Museley,  your family-centric social-network learning hub. A space that offers transformative avenues for families to reset the course and direction of their lives together. Museley continues the learning experience by providing online, specialised Community Circles that support Family Learning, Family Business, Health & Wellness, Children’s Education & Development and The Arts and Human Consciousness.

Museley will become your trusted source of timely and relevant Family News, Podcasts, Expert Guests, Live Family Events and Family Retreats all centred towards the sharing and development of ideas, the ongoing practice of what we have learned together and developing and fostering family coherence.

Your arrival…

It is suggested that you arrive at our retreat country’s location at the very latest, on the morning of the day of registration. However, our optimal suggestion is that you arrive in-country at least two to three days before the retreat starts, most especially if the time difference between your home location, or where you are, is more than 3 hours different to that of the location of the retreat. This is essential to give you and your family ample time to acclimatise to the location, time zones, cultural differences and climate. Arriving directly from a timezone which is greatly divergent from the timezone of the retreat and trying to participate in the retreat’s learning experience, can greatly affect your overall journey and its potential outcomes. However, as this is a closely integrated group experience, coming tired and unfocused has the potential to affect the entire retreat for all the families in attendance. We ask that you please take this into consideration, as it is our intention for you all to have a truly transformative experience of a life-time.

If this will be your first time traveling internationally, we can assist in providing local travel hints and tips to enhance your travel experience. Please reach out to us at (assistance (at) athominetheworldretrat (dot) com) and we will be very happy to facilitate and work with you to create the most optimal route and itinerary.

About Us

A VISION REALISED

The Kaponay Family Journey

On a cold Winter’s day in 2009, we made a conscious choice to change the story we were living.

That story was an 80+ hr work week, two children in school with endless after-school activities, and a house with a crushing mortgage.

Underneath all the noise of Society, which told us that this separate, divided existence was the pinnacle of a healthy, normal family life, we somehow knew that this was not the life we were meant to be living.

Our first step to creating our own definition of coherence was to let everything we’d seemingly built go.

We sold the house, decided to experiment with Homeschooling for a year, and took a 6 month roadtrip around Australia.

More than 15 years later, the story we chose to write together as a family has taken us to over 50 countries on 6 continents.

Our two ‘world-schooled’ children have grown, with our son now the creator of his own travel business, and our daughter an acclaimed published author.

However, there were many days where we wondered if the financial instability and all around uncertainty of the new life we had chosen was worth it, even if that life was filled with exploring many corners of the world along the way.

But it was exactly these travels that shone an inescapable light on the ever-encroaching harmful ways that stress, overwork, overcommitment and societal narratives are taking families in separate directions, and causing harm and disintegration to the health and well-being of families everywhere.

COVID19 has also demonstrated, now more than ever, why families need to seek their own, more viable and cohesive and communal ways of living and working together. And if we learned anything in over a decade of living in cramped spaces on the road, wrestling with the internet, (and each other — four very strong personalities all working in wildly different career spaces to make ends meet) it’s that.

At Home In The World Retreats and our Family Community Social Media Learn Hub Museley is our shared family brainchild.

All four of our hearts and all four pairs of our hands working together to create a space where you and your family can come to breathe easy again.

Where you can press pause on all that incessant babble out there telling you what your family should look like, act like, behave like, be like.

Our family centric social network hub is built for you by us, a family who can empathise with exactly what you’re going through, and wants to help you reconnect with the story you know you’re meant to be living in this life.

And the secret is, you’re not meant to do it alone. You never were.

Your family is a super-power like no other in the world. A power our modern societies actively seek to dismantle.

But when families come together to learn, work and live in a manner that is coherent and authentic to them, the world changes from the inside out.

By showing up for our own inner worlds first, we become at home with ourselves, which leads to being at home with our families, which in turn leads to being at home in the world, no matter where you live.

This is the essence of what we have to share, both online at Museley and in-person at our At Home In the World Family Retreats.

We see your commitment to your family and your bravery in wanting to choose a life that is in alignment with your needs.

We’re so glad you’re here and we’re so excited to travel this next phase of your family journey together.

-George, Bobi, Réka & Lalika
