Hire of a place to retreat

  • Everyone brings a meal to share
  • Games / DVDs / Music

10 hours beforehand + the time you are there

  1. Have a good facilitator to lead the sessions over the weekend
  2. Make sure it is a comfortable environment which allows natural interaction and sharing and fun
  3. Don't over program / be flexible
  4. Make sure the topics are appropriate for all all ages
  5. Make sure you enforce the freedom of acceptance to allow people to open up with their feelings as well as allow others to not feel pressure to always engage.
