Workshop Details

Living a healthy and meaningful life is all about balance. In this tech-free Digital Detox retreat, we'll explore the physical, psychological, and social benefits of unplugging while sharing techniques that help us stay balanced in our always-on, constantly connected, digitally-driven world. When we develop mindful relationships with our devices, we help ourselves create a sustainable foundation for our careers, personal wellness, and individual happiness. 
We all know that our minds need time and space for reflection. However, it is difficult to find or create that time between meetings, podcasts, Facebook, and text messages. When we detach from our devices and disconnect from the over-stimulation of social media, we step back into the natural rhythm of life and rediscover what living in the moment truly feels like. Together we'll examine what it means to unplug, and practice staying balanced through a series of hands-on sessions: yoga, pranayama (breathing), meditation, creative writing, baking or truffle making, art sessions, and community building. Digital Detox can help reduce anxiety, stress, depression, tech dependency, fatigue, and information overload. Other results can include an increase in creativity and efficiency, enhanced teamwork, gratitude, personal growth, and even deeper and better sleep. Return to daily life with new-found energy, creative inspiration, and a refreshed approach to a balanced life in the digital age.
