How To Schedule a Week

โœจThis is something that most participants will want to be aware of in the very beginningโœจ โฃ

Remember that ๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ. One mistake that retreat leaders make is packing ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ผ ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ต stuff into the schedule, which can leave participants feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. โฃ

A good rule of thumb is to have a retreat consisting of: ๐Ÿฎ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐˜† (usually of ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ styles and energy levels) with 1 or 2 scheduled excursions (included in the price of the retreat), while having ๐Ÿญ ๐—ผ๐—ณ๐—ณ ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐˜†, and giving ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐˜† ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ for rest, relaxation, and exploration.โฃ

Make sure that you are ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ on the offerings on and around the retreat venue so that you can give your students options on how to spend their time. Part of leading a retreat is being a chaperone and the more information you have to take care of your students, the better. โฃ

If possible, plan to ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜‚๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ everyone else does so that you can sit down with the owner or manager of the venue to get all of the information you need and get clear on the schedule for the week.โฃ
