About This Event
#DeepTalkAnywhere is a retreat focused on deepening human connections. We invite location independent entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote workers, and anyone who wants to be able to create more meaningful relationships in their life - wherever they go.
We designed this Retreat to share tools that will empower you to create relationships that you always wanted. It doesn’t matter where you struggle most: keeping a connection with your folks back at home, meeting new people or diving into deep and meaningful conversations.
The techniques we work with are universal, in the sense that they give you the freedom to respond and take initiative – rather than merely react.
The programme of the four-day Retreat is packed with practical activities that show you experientially how to enhance any human interaction.
Those activities are a combination of scientifically validated tools, meditation practice and games we have tested in multiple settings and contexts.
Authentic Relating Games Session
Authentic Relating Games are extensively tested, masterfully led experiences that help us learn about the very essence of human interactions. In this session we will explore group dynamics that will provide you with fresh tools you can use in your everyday interactions, by focusing on different intentions and feelings such as bonding, fun, curiosity, testing boundaries, empathy, communication and reflection.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) Workshop
Nonviolent Communication (NVC), developed by Marshall Rosenberg, helps us reframe how we express ourselves and how we hear others. It is a valuable tool to resolve conflicts by focusing our consciousness on what we are observing, feeling, needing, and requesting.
Active Listening Workshop
Many of us know that listening is a key asset for successful relationships, however few of us know how to listen deeply, effectively and actively. In this workshop, you will get to practise your listening skills, and you will learn techniques and exercises that you can bring to your everyday life and use to transform your communication with others.
Communication Strategies for Long Distance Relationships—Think Tank
One of the biggest challenges that comes with living a location independent lifestyle is staying in touch with people who live far away from us. In this think tank we will identify problems, analyse tested solutions, and brainstorm innovative ways to maintain fulfilling relationships and connections while living in different countries.
Self-Disclosure as a Tool for Deepening Relationships—Workshop
Basing on the study ‘The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness’, we will explore the strength behind vulnerability and learn how to be more honest and open in our relationships and interactions with others.
Meditation and Self-Coaching
A crucial step towards improving our relationships with others is to first have a healthy relationship with ourselves. We will do this through mindfulness exercises, meditation, and exploring self-coaching tools that will help you achieve your personal goals and be the best version of yourself well after you have left the retreat.
Apart from structured workshops, we will also allow time for unwinding and integrating new insights. This is why we are bringing this Retreat to an exceptional location – Lauvitel Lodge in the heart of the French Alps. Being surrounded by mountain peaks and pristine Nature all day long will surely help us feel the connection we are so eager for.
“In June 2016, I discovered Lauvitel Lodge during a Reiki retreat. This was an amazing experience: Tai chi, chi gong, meditation, hiking, initiation to Reiki, amazing food, super comfortable room, great views, peaceful garden and most of all: extraordinary people running the place. I have travelled all over the world but this is one of my top 5 best places on earth. I’ve come back a different person. Thanks Caroline for having given me more faith In myself. I’ll never ever forget that first stay (of many to come) at Lauvitel Lodge.” – Céline Maginel
