Have you always wanted to share your passion with others? Or perhaps this is a brand new idea, and you’re keen to dive in. Maybe you’ve already hosted retreats and are looking for a new venue.
We are here to help.
Our typical retreats go like this: everyone arrives around 6:30 on a Friday evening (after dinner). Check in and settle into rooms, then meet in living room or studio to go over the intentions of the weekend and perhaps get started. Around 9 or 9:30 p.m. snacks are served. Social time and getting to know each other in the kitchen or living room.
Saturday morning we provide breakfast at 8:30 a.m., then your sessions begin/continue. Lunch at 12:30 p.m., usually a nice homemade soup with a sandwich bar. Continue your sessions, we provide snacks/coffee break. Dinner at 6:30 p.m. is a make-your-own pizza party! Great time for socializing and team building.
Sunday a mini breakfast is available at 8:00 a.m., your sessions continue till brunch at 11 a.m. You can reconvene and wrap up and review your successes until check out at 2 p.m.
The above is flexible, we can customize for your group and activities.
When planning your retreat we discuss many details with you, like what your overall participant fee will be. Our portion of the weekend rate is $350/person plus taxes. We can take the registrations from the guests and then make the settlement of your portion at the end of the weekend.
We will work together to determine the appropriate minimum number of participants. A deposit is required to hold the weekend. This deposit is refundable if we have not achieved the minimum by 6 weeks before your weekend and you decide to cancel the weekend. Should you wish to continue to hold the weekend and try to get more participants, the deposit may be forfieted. Once a weekend proceeds, the deposit is refunded to you at the end of the weekend settlement.
We will work with you to create a marketing plan. We will promote your retreat on our website and facebook page as well as in our newsletters.
We will work with you to ensure your guests are taken care of in a nurturing environment. This will allow you to deliver your message to the best of your ability, ensuring your guests have a most amazing experience!
