Guidelines for Participation...
Serve, Love, Give, Meditate, Realize...
We would like to ensure an excellent environment for everyone at our retreat. So, to be sure the conditions are just right, we've created some general guidelines to help you prepare for your time with us.
The Right Attitude
Suncokret offers an experience into a holistic way of life and foreign culture, which may be very different from your own. In order to obtain the greatest benefit from this experience, we ask that you come with a positive outlook, a commitment to learn and, most importantly, an open attitude toward local customs, conditions and standards, teachers and retreat hosts and their teaching techniques and service styles, which may be different from what you are accustomed to.
Be Informed & Come Prepared
Please be sure to fully acquaint yourself with every aspect of our retreat as presented on this website, while also familiarizing yourself with the following core concepts:
Be patient with yourself and others and give yourself time to adjust to your new environment. Changes in climate, food, time zones, and, of course, jet lag and lifestyle changes may be challenging. Therefore it is extremely important that you embark on this journey with a sense of adventure and are prepared for the unexpected..
Accept the level of self-responsibility required to co-create an open, cooperative, positive retreat environment with group leaders and other retreat guests.
Make a dedicated and conscious effort to achieve your personal retreat goals, by welcoming the support and guidance of the retreat leader(s) and, when appropriate, other retreat guests.
Be flexible regarding possible change in the program itinerary due to factors such as seasonal restrictions, weather conditions and other circumstances that may arise.
Co-create “community spirit” by regularly participating in scheduled activities, volunteering your time and energy in maintaining the retreat space and being a cooperative member of our family of retreat friends.
Help us to help you by bringing to our immediate attention any aspect of the retreat experience that you are not satisfied with. With your mutual cooperation and respect, we will do what we can to resolve issues quickly and effectively.
If you have a health condition, are pregnant or are simply unsure whether the yoga or other activities being offered are suitable for you, please consult with your doctor - and then us - before signing up!
Travel Insurance & Visas
For your safety, please be sure to arrange appropriate travel visas and other travel documents, as well as appropriate travel insurance before the start of the retreat.
