Disconnect to Reconnect :: A Back-to-Basics Experience

Big image


Take a tech-free getaway at the beach and rediscover your inner nature- IN nature. Come unplug with us, Annelies Gentile of Conduit for Change and Greg Whitt of Drum for Change and enjoy an art-of-living weekend with good conversations, in real time, with great people, in beautiful nature. Join us for a reju-vacation!

Let's be honest, most of us are stressed. Exposed to technology overload, we're living an "always on" lifestyle that's harder on all parts of your well-being, relationships and productivity than you probably realize. Well, guess what? Professionals are people too and slowing down is pertinent. Taking a break is important to your well-being and your bottom-line. Join us for this playful and restorative back-to basics experience by the sea.

We've rented the youth-camp side of the Trinity retreat center to make this adults-only experience an interesting, affordable and joyful experience. To top it off, you'll get access to all of what nature has to offer from a nearly 70 acres of live-oak forest and private-access to the sound, sea and a saltwater pool. It's rare and beautiful!

  • relax, refresh, reset, and rekindle a little creativity and lots of joy
  • learn practical de-stress and un-plug tools to use at home and at work
  • enjoy real-time, real-world face-to-face conversations under the stars and by the sea
