Blue Sky Escapes Retreats:

An Emergence of Self

A 3D2N Retreat: An Emergence of Self

8 – 10 January 2021

“And where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”

Joseph Campbell

This January 2021, step away from the chaos and stresses of the year, and journey into your inner world— your way there will be explorative, reflective and playful. Guided by movement, breath and sound, eventually becoming aware of the body, thoughts, emotions, and the gaps of silence between them, arriving at a place of watchfulness – a place where you are free to fully experience the present moment. 

This is your journey of unfolding – a homecoming to yourself. 

Nestled within the lush, idyllic surroundings of a safe and secluded sanctuary, this three-day, soul-reviving weekend offers you a chance to re-emerge anew in 2021, embracing your own process of emergence, as you deeply nourish yourself with mindful practices, wholesome meals and the intimate, uplifting company of others. 

And when you’re ready, return to the outer world, carrying with you a renewed sense of clarity, awareness and resilience to fulfil your unique path and onward journey. 

Retreat Space

The retreat will take place at a secluded sanctuary, with interiors thoughtfully designed to provide a safe and nurturing space conducive for you to take the journey within.

 

Lodging

At the end of each day, recuperate within the comforts of your room at the Grand Hyatt, located close by. Transport will be provided to shuttle you between locations.

 

Food

Guest chefs on site will serve up a curation of nourishing recipes, using fresh, quality ingredients laden with nature’s goodness and sourced sustainably where possible, in tandem with the seasons.

 

Dates

Our retreat opens from 12pm on Friday, 8 January 2021 and ends at 5pm on Sunday, 10 January 2021.

End of Retreat

As each step on the retreat schedule has been thoughtfully designed to take you on a journey of unfolding and emergence, we would highly recommend that you begin and end the journey as planned so as to experience it as it was intended and get the most out of your retreat experience.

The retreat is being hosted in a secluded location away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, which will serve as the perfect container for you to experience inner healing and transformation.  

This retreat is for:  

  • Anyone interested in transformative wellness practices  
  • Anyone looking to devote time for self-care 
  • Anyone looking to release stress  
  • Anyone looking to improve their sense of self

No, all sessions are optional to attend, however we recommend that you attend all sessions as scheduled to gain the most out of the retreat experience.  

Absolutely, some people are looking for some time out from their lives and they embark on the wellness journey solo, and you’ll most certainly be amongst people having a similar experience. Some of us might just want “alone-time”, or some of us might want to seek new friendships. 

Retreats are an incredible place to make great life-long friends. There’s something about going through the retreat experience that can really create strong bonds. 

No, silence is not mandatory for yourself, but out of respect for the group we ask that you maintain silence in group setting. We will introduce ‘Mouna’, the practice of maintaining silence at the beginning of the retreat and creating a space for the Day of Silence. It is up to you regarding how deeply you go into the practice and for how long you maintain silence. If you need to chat with other participants who also are not maintaining silence, then we ask that you do it away from the retreat grounds or the group activity spaces.  

We ask that you leave your mobile phones and digital devices in your hotel rooms and come tech-free to the retreat. We will also have a ‘drop-off’ box for anyone who would like to deposit their mobile devices at the start of the retreat and collect at the end, in order to be truly free of these devices for the duration. It is up to you what you would like to do, but we are requiring a tech-free zone during the retreat itself, on the retreat grounds. If you need to have access to your phone for any reason, please let us know and we can arrange a private way for you to do so.

The health and safety of all participants, practitioners and our team remain our top priority. Wearing of face masks is mandatory during the retreat, except when eating, drinking and during strenuous activities. We will be abiding by the latest Safe Management Measures as outlined by the Singapore government.  

Safedistancing will be adhered to at all times, with appointed safe-distancing ambassadors on-site for temperature checks. We also encourage everyone to be equipped with the TraceTogether app or token and deploy SafeEntry for contact tracing.  

Our team will also ensure that rigorous cleaning and disinfecting regimes are implemented, particularly for high touch surfaces.

We will be abiding by the latest Safe Management Measures as outlined by the Singapore government. We are permitted to conduct the sessions and workshops for no more than 50 guests in a single room, provided that the relevant safe distancing measures are put in place on site. Guests will remain in groups of five during the sessions and workshops.

You will get the chance to pick from a selection of nourishing meals before the retreat and share with us any food allergies, dietary plans and dietary restrictions that you may have. We will do our best to adapt to every guest.

No, we encourage you not to. We will not be able to issue a refund after the cancellation deadline but a transfer of space to another may be possibleWe will be able to review the situation on a case-by-case basis.
