"Journey Into Deep Listening...Unplug. Reconnect. Recharge."
Calling All DADS!!! Join Breathwork & Meditation Coach, Mind/Body Movement Specialist & Yoga Teacher...Adam Michael Brewer in Ojai Valley in Southern California for a COMPLETELY UNIQUE 4 day/ 3 night getaway. This will be a SILENT RETREAT which will be deeply introspective, contemplative and life transformative and filled with daily yoga, breathwork and meditation practice. If you're looking to find greater purpose, peace, patience, presence, passion and playfulness, then this is just the experience you need!
To create a safe space for dads to unplug from the matrix of life, slow down, open up and deeply connect with themselves, nature and other like-minded papas. In this 4-day experience, we will break bread together, practice yoga (both yin and yang), breathwork, meditation, hike, and swim. The intent is to have you leave the 4-day retreat and return to your daily life feeling recharged, grounded, rejuvenated, empowered, connected and more grateful that ever before.
Our mission with Conscious Dads is to create a global community of dads who are looking to create a new modus operondi for Fatherhood. This is Fathering With Mindfulness. One where we live in awe, ever-evolving, free to become, moving our mindset from me to we, having a passion for conscious evolution; living with an interest to see things as they are not as we wish them to be, unflappable & rooted yet expanding; to be man enough to admit your fears yet to take action regardless and not be afraid to “fail”; to be a Dad who is human enough to stop fighting fire with fire, rather to be like water (adaptable, fluid); to be Service-oriented, less stubborn & more flexible; to live as men who aren’t afraid to cry, who listen more than they speak, who are spacious, safe, joyful, expansive, and conscious.
And why is it important to do this work? So that we raise "integrated" children who are kind, caring, loving, confident, generous, resourceful, compassionate, helpful, empathetic, playful, creative, peaceful, inclusive, and philanthropic.
Meals will be prepared by a private Chef who specializes in creating culinary masterpieces utilizing organic, clean and healthy items. Snacks and drinks will be available all weekend. There will be a refrigerator available in the main kitchen in case you need to bring anything special.
Nestled in the beautiful and serene Ojai Valley in Southern California, we will stay at a 3 acre private residence with 360 degree mountain views, 6 private bedrooms, a stunning pool with sublime gardens for walking and meditating. The home is walking distance to phenomenal hiking trails in the mountains as well. You won't be disappointed!
THURSDAY AFTERNOON: arrival will be between 4 and 5:30 pm. This will be followed by a WELCOMING Circle. In the circle we will introduce ourselves and go over the lay of the land for the remainder of the weekend. Once we leave the opening circle, participants will be asked to remain in silence through Saturday evening.
FRIDAY: We will begin our day early with the rising sun. Then morning will begin with an energizing Sport Yoga Flow session, to be immediately followed by Energization Breathing and then meditation. We will then gather for a silent BREAKFAST. After breaking bread, there will be what I refer to as a "MINDFUL MOMENT"...I will share insights into what it means to be a CONSCIOUS DAD at this time on planet earth, and "tools for transformation" will be discussed. After the talk, you will be given time to walk the grounds, swim, write in a journal, read etc (all in silence). When we reconvene, we will once more move our bodies mindfully, breath and meditate. LUNCH will follow (In silence). Post LUNCH there will be another MINDFUL MOMENT, more free time, another round of mindful movement, Balancing Breathing and meditation, then DINNER (in silence). Post Dinner, we will have another MINDFUL MOMENT, followed by Gentle, Restorative Yoga, Relaxation Breathing and Meditation. From then on out, the night is yours...I simply ask you to remain in silence.
SATURDAY: Will be a repeat of Friday.
SUNDAY: The morning will begin as it has the prior 2 days...with movement, breathing and meditation...then BREAKFAST (in silence). This will be our final silent experience. Next will be our Final MINDFUL MOMENT. This will be followed by a GROUP SHARE. We "open up the phone lines" to each and everyone to share about their experiences and allow for meaningful conversation, fellowship and dialogue to ensue. After this, FREE time will be given. We will then do one last round of movement, breathwork and meditation. LUNCH comes next and then a CLOSING CIRCLE.
