What Awaits:

The world of competition and corporate bottom lines drives us to extremes. We need to come home to ourselves, and we need to disconnect and recharge, but it’s increasingly difficult to do so. When not used mindfully, our tech can sap our focus, productivity, creativity and, ultimately, our impact. Embracing the Joy of Missing Out is essential for success in all aspects of how we love, live and lead. Joy, by definition, is “the emotion evoked by well-being, success and the prospect of possessing what one desires.” It’s what we all want. 

You have 365 days this year. Imagine spending 7 of them in a tropical paradise surrounded by thoughtful people set on making their days count too. Imagine conversations and clarity. Imagine tools for real-life scenarios that will go to work for you immediately. You get to choose who wins this year: you or your devices.

Award-winning Author Christina Crook (JOMO) and Psychotherapist and Community Organizer Christina Malecka (Unplug. Reconnect. Restore: Digital Mindfulness Retreats) are teaming up to bring you this one-of-a-kind 7-day retreat for a deeply restorative experience that will change your life. 

Imagine yourself totally unplugged and held in community in one of the most beautiful places in the world for a week of:

Education: to help you understand the personal and professional costs of your digital devices

Meditation: because mindfulness is the opposite of distraction and the key to tech/life balance

Connection and Community: deeply engage with yourself and others and make life-long friends

Yoga: to embody your in-the-moment awareness

Adventure: to reclaim the joy and excitement of childhood 

Self-Discovery: to help you identify and articulate your personal values and sources of joy

Empowerment: to provide you with tools and strategies to stay digitally connected on your own terms

Rest: to counteract exhaustion, digital overwhelm and toxic hustle

What to Expect

You will be asked to turn over your digital devices on Sunday morning and will enjoy being tech-free for 5 days, followed by 2 days of digital declutter, practicing digital mindfulness skills in real time. There will be an emergency number for your loved ones to use if they need to get in touch with you during this time.  

Because we understand that for many of us, keeping up with the news is important, we will monitor the New York Times and other news sources for breaking stories and update participants who want to know what's going on in the world during the retreat time.  It is also ok to opt out of this.  If you have other needs for saying in touch with family or kids during the retreat, that can also be arranged.

How Much Will it Cost?

Way, way too much. The price of living as a servant to our digital devices is astronomical.

We all pay with something: our time, attention, energy, relationships, sleep, mental health, happiness, and more.

It's time to take back the investment and bank on something better: your values, your goals, your joy.
