What makes Ctrl+Alt+Del different from other retreats?
Ctrl+Alt+Del is the first retreat of its kind, an eye-opening experience working with mind and body to get unstuck. It offers a chance to slow down, explore the ways we see ourselves, and recharge.
This all takes place in Evo’s beautiful Venice Beach location, where participants will enjoy mindfulness, movement, delicious food, and inspiring discussion. By the end of the day, participants will take away concrete tools to unlock new possibilities.
How many people will be there?
For this first retreat, one top priority is to create an immersive and intimate experience. We are capping participants at 12 people, which we think is ideal for vibrant group conversation and exploration. This is an incredible value considering that most retreats typically do not have less than 40-50 people.
What is somatic work?
Somatic work is a holistic therapeutic approach that addresses the relationship between the mind and body. It includes a wide range of practices that relate mind and body, including mindfulness, yoga, bodywork, nutrition, and more. Evo uses somatic work as a core part of its approach as a way to help people develop new understandings of the relationship between oneself and the body. Work that connects the mind and body helps people pause, regulate their bodies, and begin to feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Do I need to be in shape to attend?
No! All bodies are welcome for this work. You do not need to be “in shape” or have any experience doing meditation or any other athletic activity to participate. Please let us know when you register if you have special accommodations.
Who is this event for?
You! We all at some time or another feel “stuck.” Everyone is welcome to attend.
Maybe you have goals you would like to reach, but for some reason are not making progress towards these goals. Maybe you have stories about yourself and what you are worth that is causing you to to lower your expectations. Maybe worry or hesitation is standing in the way of your making a decision or positive change in your life.
The goal of Ctrl+Alt+Del is to have a daylong session to refresh your perspective and get a jumpstart on the things you care about. By the end of the day, our plan is for you take away new ideas and concrete steps to move things in the direction you want to go.
What should I wear and bring?
Since the day will include some meditation and movement, please wear comfortable clothes and shoes. They should be clothes that are easy to stretch and move in. You may want to bring socks and a sweater in case it gets cool inside.
Will there be food?
Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. Special guest chef will cater nourishing plant-based food throughout the day to help participants recharge and feel healthy inside and out.
