We are seeking just eight families, THE OREGON EIGHT, who deep in their hearts are seeking to experience that one, transformative family adventure they have been looking for, that will launch a completely new chapter and journey in their lives, forever altering their family course.
This is the framework that we will build and realise together as a group of families in Jacksonville, Oregon. While this takes sheer will, determination, immersion, and a willingness to go beyond the boundaries of your comfort, the rewards on the other side will see you and your family create a framework for living and a family story that will serve each of your family members in all of your meaningful pursuits, for the rest of your lives.
Due to unprecedented concern regarding COVID19 and the potential effects to health and well-being we have sadly taken the decision to cancel the 2020 planned Retreats.
To ensure a place for your family for next year's 2021 Retreat register your interest now!

FOR 2021 NOW!
Is there a more inspiring life out there for all of us?
Are we living our lives intentionally?
Is life taking us in unintended, perhaps, separate directions?
Is it our intention to live a more meaningful and connected life together?
What would it take for us to create and live the life of our dreams?
What's really stopping us from seeing this through together?
Then this experience may be
the one for your family in 2020!
In this all-immersive, fully inclusive two week gathering, we will experience some of the most spectacular human and cultural experiences that Oregon has to offer, but this is no family vacation.
Our experience is perhaps an unmatched one, as it calls each member of your family—young and old—to embark upon a learning journey, one that will require them to participate fully, and experience the adventure both individually and together. It is perhaps also, the first and only, completely integrated learning experience where children and adults have equal stake and equal responsibility in the learning framework.
Your children will be empowered in an environment of respect and support to realise their potential as full stakeholders in the family's creative process. They will also have the chance to lead us all in that child like playful manner, through story and enchantment, in fully integrated learning sessions, that will transform the way we come to understand the family dynamic.
This takes great effort, will, courage, trust, a very real level of authenticity, integrity, vulnerability and loving kindness. This retreat will call you to question the deepest aspects of the lives you have led, challenging you on every level to look inwards and examine what it is you find. It will also offer the opportunity to illuminate and disentangle the physical and energetic intergenerational entanglements and burdens that we have all carried with us as families that no longer serve us.
Simultaneously, you will be experiencing an avenue of learning, that even with every messy, complex, perfectly imperfect aspect of family life, will offer you a safe haven, and a way in which you can listen to and hear that long quietened inner voice, taking confidence from the direction it offers you. From this, you will forge a family story, one that will weave each of your family member's unique strengths, gifts, creativity and love into the Family Story that you can all live together, in loving fulfillment for the rest of your lives.
Give your family the freedom to live your life together from the heart.
❁ All transformative and interactive awareness inspired learning sessions,
roundtables, panels, discussion groups, conversations, and introspective
activities necessary for your family’s transformation. This is the entire learning
program with some of the most innovative and integrated activities and approaches
to learning and awareness practice, with ample opportunity for personal reflection and integration.
❁ The entire children’s program is the first of its kind. It is intended to foster the development of free thinking, fully empowered people,
who can actively take leading roles in the co-creation of your family's story and life. Our children's program is consciously integrated with
the adult program of learning, and has been carefully designed for all age groups, intended to converge with and complement all the adult sessions.

experience is an exceptional one.

any additional costs will be at your own expense).
❁ A breath taking excursion to Crater Lake, the deepest and one of the bluest most beautiful natural lakes in the US. Crater Lake is a very sacred
and revered site of the Klamath Tribe of Native Americans. We will share in a day that will encompass an immersion in nature and the cultural
heritage of the first nations, with specific insight into how indigenous perspectives and practices of living are relevant to our daily lives as families.
(A box lunch will be included for our excursion)
❁ Earth Teach Labyrinth Walk and Ropes Course. This day will be one of adventure and excitement, challenging ourselves to reach outside
of our comfort zones and learn things about ourselves and our family. Set in a spectacular natural setting, high above the Oregon woods,
we will all experience an outdoor day of energetic expression and learning.
❁ Daily activities and local cultural experiences, such as Tai Chi, Yoga, Zumba and Line Dancing, and hiking, we will have the opportunity
to move and flow allowing our energies to naturally integrate the learning we will all take on together as a community.

As the organizers of this unique gathering, we see it as our duty of care to ensure that if you are one of the 8 attending families, we make all efforts to determine together that this gathering and its benefits to your family, is something that you can absolutely not afford to miss; something that you all agree is completely needed by your family.
Together, we can only assess this if we have had the opportunity to sit down with you and your family to discuss face-to-face whether what we have to offer, is what will best serve your family's needs on its journey of learning and transformation. This happens in a safe, engaging, attentive space, where we can explore the specifics of how potentially our gathering may be the exact experience you and your family need.
At the end of our conversation, if we determine together that we have a good fit for both of us, and we have a very high likelihood of being able to meet these needs, then we can talk money. And then, if the monetary investment is the only thing left that we have to agree on, we commit to you, that we will do our utmost to meet you at an investment point commensurate with your financial ability to attend. This is our commitment to you!
To commence the process of joining us:
Please enter your name and email below to receive a link to our Pre-Registration Form.
Please fill in our Pre-Registration Form, with as much detail as you can possibly offer of your family's needs, requirements, dreams, expectations. This is critical in helping us to create an environment where we can openly and honestly address the needs you may have and determine where and how we can best serve you.
After receiving your Pre-Registration Form, we will organise a personalized live video call to meet with you and your family, answer any questions you might have and go through the process of determining whether this is a fit for you and us.
Once we have both determined that we like to move forward, we will require a deposit commensurate with your commitment to attend.
Give your family the freedom to live your life together from the heart.
The Kaponay Family Journey...
Ten years ago, the Kaponay family together made a conscious choice to embrace change as the catalyst to creating a transformational way of living that constantly reinvested in learning and developing, together as a family.
This investment and their subsequent adventures has taken them to over 50 countries on 6 continents over the last nine years. Their passion from learning from all the families they met along their journey and their realisation for endless choice of possibilities for joyful living was the inspiration for creating this retreat.
Along their travels, they noticed the ever encroaching harmful ways stress, overwork, overcommitment and societal narratives, were taking families in separate directions and causing harm and disintegration to the health and well-being of families.
The Kaponay Family longed to share with families what they had learned. To create a framework by which families in their daily lives, could not only recapture that togetherness that was always theirs, but also, to help facilitate a way all families could, live and dream into being their own family story in the unique, dignified way in which they envisioned it.
This was how At Home In The World Family Retreats was born, and its very name embodies every aspect of this possibility as a constant in life.
To be at home with yourself is a core vital step to being at home with your family, and at home with the world, no matter where or how you live.
