Individual Private Retreats
About Individual Private Retreats
Individual private retreats with hOMe PYM are custom retreats crafted to address the precise needs of a single participant.
Anyone seeking to move through personal blocks, reconcile trauma, navigate a life transition with integrity, or advance spiritually may benefit from an individual private retreat. They offer a combination of one-on-one facilitation and personal time for meditation, reflection, and practice. The retreatant has the option to work with either or both of the hOMe co-founders during their retreat.
These residential retreats take place in the warm, inviting yurt on the hOMe PYM retreat campus or at private, comfortable spaces throughout the United States.
Types of Individual Private Retreats
Soma and Spirit: Meditation, Yoga and Energy Healing
Psyche, Soma, Spirit: Psychotherapy, Yoga, Meditation, and Energy Healing
Heart Rhythm Meditation (TM) Private Retreat Program from the Institute of Applied Meditation on the Heart founded by Susanna and Puran Bair *Institute of Applied Meditation on the Heart students only
The participant first receives a FREE consultation with hOMe co-founder Caroline Culverhouse, MSS, LSW, E-RYT. The consultation offers a safe, confidential space for the participant to share their reasons for choosing a private retreat.
Depending on the outcome of the consultation and the student’s reasons for choosing a private retreat, it may be recommended that they book up to two one-on-one intake sessions with Caroline prior to the retreat. These sessions help prepare the retreatant to ensure they get the most out of their private retreat experience.
The retreat is a combination of one-on-one activities with a facilitator and personal time for meditation, rest, and relaxation. The facilitators customize the entire schedule of activities for each private retreatant, delivering a hand-crafted experience that addresses the specific issues the participant wishes to address while on retreat.
Facilitated activities depend on the type and the duration of the retreat. They may include meditation instruction, energy healing, simple yoga, somatic release, or experiential psychotherapy exercises. In between other activities, the facilitators review with the retreatant meditation practices that the participant undertakes independently between facilitated sessions. The individual meditation practices deepen the work of facilitated time.
Most activities are one-on-one with a single facilitator & the participant. In certain Psyche, Soma, Spirit retreats, Christopher and Caroline may co-facilitate a set of experiential psychotherapy exercises.
The retreat schedule adapts to changes in the participant’s experience. This flexible approach allows for deep exploration.
