An of Era of Acceleration
People are under tremendous pressures today, perhaps greater than at any other time in history. Whatever the lifestyle, one seems to move too fast to digest the experiences that take place each day. The pressure felt is not exclusively because of work, but also due to the enormous amount of material that has to be assimilated to survive in a highly competitive environment.

The natural life rhythm simply cannot absorb the constant impact of living in a hyper-connected, media rich, turbulent environment.

Quite simply, people are destabilized and fatigued.

As catalysts engaged in creating a better world, we need energy to persevere. The true source of power and renewal is often buried to such a degree that support is needed to reclaim it. Once reclaimed we can realign with our intentions with new awareness and new strategies.

Cost: Private Room: $1390, Shared Room: $1125; $150 deposit (See our Cancellation Policy)
