We often receive queries from people in the 50’s and 60’s who would like to come but worry that they won’t fit in because they’re too old.
There’s really no need to worry.
The more diverse the age range and social background of the participants the richer the event will be. It’s a non-judgmental, welcoming atmosphere as long as you come with an open mind and heart.
We always establish a really friendly and welcome atmosphere on our retreats and you might finish the week with a whole bunch of new friends, invites and plans to go travelling together in the winter.
You don’t need to be a group person to come, either. You can take as much space as you need or stay in the thick of things as suits your temperament.
The workshops aren’t there to turn you into a professional dancer bur rather to open up new possibilities of expression in your body. It’s good for you!
But if you want to just chill on the beach during the days that’s also ok.
Well, it’s not a bad idea.
We can recommend World Nomads travel insurance to make sure you’re covered in the case of an accident or illness.
We’ll be eating a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables as our cooks put together vegetarian Italian meals. There will be big lumps of Parmesan cheese being passed around but otherwise the food will be suitable for vegans.
We always have a really diverse mix of people on the retreats and it’s that variety that makes the week such a rich experience. There come students, hippies, professionals, executives and vagabonds. Come, come, whoever you are…
You need to bring:
a sleeping bag
a water bottle
and a sense of humour!
Please don’t bring alcohol or drugs. We’ll celebrate and get high on music alone!
You can use your phone but not in the camp area. We’re here to connect with each other.
To keep a clean and conscious atmosphere there are some things you should not bring:
– alcohol (we get high on cups of tea and good music)
– belief systems (live and let live)
We’re on a campsite with plenty of space for you to pitch a tent in the shade. You can also just put a sleeping mat down on the ground or string up a hammock and doze off in a sleeping bag.
There are toilets and showers on the campsite.
It’s a big beach and there are some other campsites on it but we’re coming off-season so while we can expect to see a few people, we’ll have plenty of space to be all by ourselves. There are 10km of sand, after all.
