Individual In-Person and Virtual Private Retreats
About Individual Private Retreats
hOMe private retreats offer participants an opportunity to dive deeply into their personal
transformation to expediate and amplify their healing and awakening process. The content of the
retreat differs from person to person and is designed specifically with the client’s goals in mind. Retreats
also differ depending on who the facilitator is. Retreats with Christopher are based on Heart Rhythm
meditation practices and Hurqalia Healing and have been designed and curated by the Institute of Heart
Rhythm Meditation founded by Susanna and Puran Bair. Retreats with Caroline or Tara can be strictly
metaphysical or combine a combination of spirituality and psychotherapy.
Retreats can be as focused or as loose as clients prefer. Typically, private retreats last anywhere from 2
to 7 days but single day retreats and long retreats, up to 14 days, are available. Individual private retreats involve anywhere from 2 to 8 hours of direct one-on-one time with the facilitator. Hours spent with
Caroline or Tara as a facilitator can include anything from psycho-spiritual counseling sessions, soul
retrievals, Somatic Release and Awareness practices, experiential psychotherapy, yoga, art therapy,
Heart Rhythm meditation, guided imagery instruction and much more.
Time not spent with the facilitator may include rest, reading, walking, journaling, listening to pre-
recorded meditations, breathing practices, meditating, painting, or yoga. We encourage participants to
spend as little time on devices as possible so they are able to really be present for their process.
Retreats may be conducted on the hOMe PYM campus in Berks County, PA, at Caroline’s home on the
Big Island of Hawaii, or any location selected by both facilitator and client. At least three weeks out of
the year Caroline reserves space for those who prefer to hold their private retreat in Sedona Arizona.
About Family Private Retreats
Private retreats for families are specifically designed to create a safe container in which families can
work through long term and short- term issues, dysfunctional patterns of relating, struggles with
communication, and general disconnect from one another.
The modalities used in family retreats are Imago Relationship Therapy and experiential psychotherapy.
The primary facilitator for private family retreats is Caroline.
Family retreats are conducted at the hOMe campus in Berks County, PA, Caroline’s home on the Big
Island of Hawaii, various retreat spaces in Sedona Arizona, the clients home, or at a location mutually
selected by the facilitator and family.
Participants first receive a FREE consultation with the hOMe staff member with whom they are
hoping to do the retreat. The consultation offers a safe, confidential space for the participant to share
their reasons for choosing a private retreat.
In the consultation, participants are given time to ask any questions they may have as well as receive
an overview of what the schedule might look like based on their interests.
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 meditation practices with the retreatant 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 and the participant. In certain Psyche, Soma,
Spirit retreats, Christopher and Caroline may co-facilitate a set of experiential psychotherapy
The retreat schedule adapts to changes in the participant’s experience. This flexible approach allows
for deep exploration.
