What should we bring on a silent corporate retreat?

We recommend bringing indoor shoes or slippers, a yoga mat, comfy warm clothes, hiking shoes, a swimming suit and beach towel in summer and a wristwatch. We use a gong to inform the participants of the activities, for meal time and to wake up in the morning. Having your own watch will help you be on time for some of the activities if you are off-premise during your time off.

What type of food is served on a corporate silent retreat?

Plant-based meals will be prepared by the Silent Focus team or hotel catering, according to Sattvic principles (from Ayurveda), which aid meditation and digestion. Sattvic food is vegan and does not contain caffeine, onion, garlic, hot spices or processed sugar, that stimulates the mind or hinders digestion. We try and limit gluten as well. Please let us know of any food allergies you might have when you sign up.

What do I do if I am bored on a silent corporate retreat?

We suggest going to the scheduled activities, taking a walk, enjoying nature by observing your surroundings, and listening to the birds, insects and the wind. Doing exercise, like jogging, yoga, or swimming can help with any boredom you feel during a silent corporate retreat.

What is your refund policy?
