Hammock Retreats for Small Groups

Do You Want to Hang Out?

Somewhere along the way our society chose to glorify BUSY. Yet there's truth in the old adage that "all work and no play make Jack a dull boy." Our human resources are just as important as our natural ones, and the two are NOT mutually exclusive. Immersing people in nature rejuvenates and restores creativity and productivity.

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.

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!

About Greg Whitt

"I believe life is richer when we communicate, cooperate, and collaborate with one another and with the world around us. Because I believe this, I facilitate programs to help people live, work, and play well together. I work with corporations, congregations, communities, and classrooms that want to shake things up a bit for the sake of creating more-meaningful connections."

Greg supports the idea that there's a natural order to things and that we cannot holistically separate ourselves from these inherent rhythms of life. As a facilitator he works to rewrite the story and strengthen the connections. As an educator, he teaches how we can do this in partnership with the ancient wisdom traditions of the world. As a rhythmatist he helps entrain and harmonize, both within ourselves and within the larger circle.

Greg holds a graduate certificate in Transformative Leadership from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. He serves as president of the Drum Circle Facilitators Guild. Greg facilitates interactive and inspirational programs for groups of 10 to 300 people.
