HANGING OUT TOGETHER
Hammock Retreats for Small Groups
Do You Want to Hang Out?
There's an ancient technology for creating occasions where we can once again come together to commune with nature and with one another. This tool can restore balance, shift perspective, and foster harmony. It also happens to encourage teamwork AND promote health & wellness.
HAMMOCKS are a low-cost lifestyle enhancement tool. They provide an eco-therapeutic approach to preventive health care with measurable neurobiological benefits that reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and stimulate the immune system. Couple this inherent rejuvenation with a unique facilitated program for complementary psychosocial benefits to form better teams through shared experiences.
Suspended Somewhere Between Heaven & Earth
An Experiential Program for 6 to 12 People
Come prepared to spend the day outside in comfortable and casual attire. A journal, sun screen, antihistamine, bug spray, sturdy footwear and water bottle might be great additions to bring along. Each participant will simultaneously engage in HANG TIME and facilitated discussion designed to unify and fortify individuals and teams.
“time in nature is not leisure time; it’s an essential investment in our health.”
-- Richard Louv coined the term 'Nature-Deficit Disorder'. He is the author of eight books about the connections between family, nature, and community.
The word hammock is thought to derive from the hamack tree whose fibers were used to knit the sleeping nets used for centuries by indigenous people throughout Central and South America. Columbus brought hammocks to Europe and a hundred years later they were standard issue for sailors in the British Royal Navy. After World War II they became popular for backyard recreation. Portable hammocks have offered trendy outdoor adventures for the past twenty years. And now western science is finally proving what ancient wisdom has known all along: HANGING OUT IS GOOD FOR YOU!
