“Your Body. Your Home. The home you take with you every where. It needs sun, fresh air, the sound of crashing waves, the deep oxygen of wild places, to have a deep refresh. Couched in a cozy abode, lulled to sleep by the waves, and bathed in exercise, high level nutrition, yoga, meditation, and wilderness adventure, we will bring you home.”
The retreat is spent with a balance between relaxing and athletic wilderness activities, and talking about evidence-based tools for high performance living. Each morning begins with mindfulness and stretching or accessible yoga, with opportunities to advance your practice if you are experienced.
Three talks during the retreat address the science of renewal, and group discussions integrate your understanding and shared experiences, with handouts from the talks provided for later reference. Based in mindfulness and the neuroscience of resilience, stress responses, and adaptive neural networks, the program helps you adapt the science of renewal to your individual wellness plan.
Couples welcome. Part of the course reviews how the demands of a professional career can impact relationships; and how to meet these challenges with time-honoured relationship skills, love, humour, wisdom, and creative approaches.
The goal is your optimal self, present in work and life, and to enhance your love of your profession.
