This is an invitation for the restless innovators among us to slow down and refocus our energy.

PROGRAM

5 OFFLINE DAYS IN A PEER-DRIVEN RETREAT + 4 DAYS OF MINDFUL CO-WORKING

No lectures. No pitching. No distraction. Instead: Authentic conversations. Mind-body practices. Deep reflection. And transformative rituals.  You may think of it as a mini-sabbatical. A facilitated time-out to disconnect from all the noise and reconnect with your essence.

Together with people just like you.

Most of the group work will take place in a peer-driven setting in the mornings and evenings. In the afternoon you will have free time to enjoy the healing qualities of the ocean and simply be. The rainy season will help us slow down and cleanse our energy as we go through our creative transformation into essence.

PAOLO PRIVITERA

Founder, Pick1 | San Francisco

"The mirroring exercises were an invaluable experience to get real feedback from crazy entrepreneurs like myself. I came out feeling refreshed, refocused and reinspired."

Sofana Dahlan

SOFANA DAHLAN

Founder, Tashkeil | Saudi Arabia  

"I learned that deceleration forces you to ask the hard questions you have been avoiding. The result: I sold two of my businesses to have more time with my family."

JEHAN MANEKSHAW

Founder, Theater Professionals | India

"The best part was the "no pitching rule": being able to meet others without knowing what they did and still finding resonance in everything they were saying."

THE FACILITATORS

We come together as global nomads with a desire to explore the deep questions and create spaces where we can replenish, heal & transform.

MICHEL BACHMANN

Entrepreneur, tribal weaver and intuitive healer, Michel co-founded Impact Hub Zürich and was leading the global network with 50+ Hubs towards a co-owned organization.

Witnessing the constant acceleration of his own life, he launched the idea of a decelerator to slow down and reconnect with the essential. Today, Michel is driven by the question how we can align our inner systems for outer transformation.
