Wonderful Wild

A family retreat to revitalize the self & renew the family bond

Suncokret Family Retreat

Coming in Summer 2022​

Concept

Join us for our first ever retreat adventure dedicated to families with young children, whose theme has been inspired by the award-winning children’s story, “Where the Wild Things Are.”​

This family adventure beckons you and your little ones to swap the restrictions, conventions, and limitations of day-to-day life in favor of a more primal, creative, and free-flowing connection with yourself, your loved ones, and the nature that surrounds you.

Set in our cozy retreat property and framed by the exotic setting of our paradise island, this adventure is intended for families with children who are looking for an opportunity to bond more deeply with one another, with nature, and with a small community of like-minded friends in a creative and wholesome, yet wonderfully wild magical holiday experience.

Inspiration 

Our yoga & creativity workshops are inspired by the story "Where the Wild Things Are."

In the story, a child goes on an imaginative journey to an island where his wild nature can be fully expressed in a wonderful rumpus. After having time and space to explore and enjoy his primal nature, the child comes back home to the one who loves him the most.

 

Because of this little escape from life and family norms, both the parent and the child are rebalanced and renewed. As in the story, our program aims to revitalize the self and renew our family relationships as the result of our wonderful wild rumpus together.  

Approach

Our program will take you on a holistic adventure where you and your little ones will engage in a cross-cultural, multi-lingual, community-based exchange that fosters: Mind-Body-Spirit Connection, Creativity, Life Skills, Nature Connection, Cultural Exploration, and Passion for Adventure.

Adults, Kids & Family Program
Yoga for Adults

During the yoga sessions for adults, we'll explore the wild spirit through the pranayama practices and kriyas that connect us to the sun, moon, and earth, and we'll learn how to let the spirit guide us through a gentle and intuitive vinyasa practice.

 

Creativity Program for Kids

The creativity program will start with the introduction of the story, "Where the Wild Things Are." We will do some fun drawing games based on the story, inventing our own animal hybrids, referencing the "Wild Things" as well as the island's natural life. We will also link in the panic Greek mythology that is still present on the island.  

Family Adventures

Each day, we will go off on an adventure together to explore the beautiful island and re-discover our primal nature while also connecting to ourselves, one another and the local culture.

 

The locations we'll visit are as follows:

Monday - Stari Grad Town & Beaches

Tuesday - Stari Grad Plain & Soline Beach Resort

Wednesday - Milna Village & Tour through the Hidden Lavender Villages & Hvar Highlands

Thursday - Soline Beach Resort & Vrboska Village

Friday - Jelsa Town & Beaches
