Making the most of our time together...

  • New design: Organized around the idea and concept of TEMENOS, the Greek word for container. A large holding space will be created around the entire retreat, and everyone can choose from the containers within to create a personalized retreat experience. Think of nesting bowls— containers within container.
  • Speed Temenos: High paced sessions designed to spark conversation and accelerate the building of relationships.
  • Reflection Temenos: A community session where compelling and meaningful world shaking issues are explored, debated; and ideas and thoughts are shared.
  • Connection Temenos: Fun, interactive sessions for you and about you. A time for self-development and personal growth and connecting with others around similar interests.
  • Pecha Kucha: A fast-paced, series of lightning short presentations highlighting your passions and work.
  • "Our Gifts in the World" (OGW) Fair: Opportunity to share your gifts — a showcase of tool, tips, information, aids and creative ways to expand your portfolio.
  • Breathing spaces: Intentionally paced to allow you to stand back, absorb, network, or enjoy nature. 

And our popular traditional features will return:

  • Open Space: A 'design your own' session allowing synthesis, emerging ideas, deep conversations and organizing of new projects. 
  • Fun and restful interludes: Talent Show, live music and dancing, yoga
  • Auction: Raising money for scholarships while having a rollicking good time.
