A few years ago I received a vision of being off the grid, in an atmosphere free from pollution from light, noise and radiation. In a place where mindfulness and sustainability created a bridge back the essence of being human, like how it used to be.
Created specifically for sleeping, this place would provide both the ideal setting for sleep at night, and a variety of activities during the day that all contributed to the healing of insomnia, from the basics of food to the intricacies of deep inner healing.
A place where people who need help to sleep could retreat to.
The place was a small little pasture in a place called Utopia. I found it, and so I am building it.
Coming Soon, The Utopia Sleep Retreat
"Tell me and I'll forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I will learn." -Benjamin Franklin
Step In to simplicity,
The Utopia Sleep Retreat provides you the opportunity to heal your relationship to sleep, amidst the peace and beauty of the Texas Hill Country.
This retreat will support your sleep through 1 to 1 coaching, workshops, gardening, yoga, swimming, nightly meditation sessions, and much more. But most of all, it will offer you the time and space to integrate it all.
By trading in everyday life for a few nights in Utopia, your body will experience the space and clarity necessary to connect to your sleep, as you acquire the momentum to begin overcoming insomnia.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
This retreat has been carefully curated for the insomniac who has chronically struggled with sleep and feels like they are out of options. If this is you, the retreat experience will support your sleep, not just as an escape, but in transforming your relationship to sleep on the deepest level.
You will walk away from the retreat with a new understanding of your sleep and a tool box of new skills to take into your regular life. Most important to the insomniac though, this retreat is not just a place for you to honor sleep, but be supported to transpire in a new way if and when sleep doesn’t go as planned. Often times these moments yield the greatest sleep victories.
This Sleep Retreat will bring you the most thoughtful experience related to sleep, by someone who care deeply about insomniacs and wants for them what he has experienced himself.
