Retreat Format

Before Retreat

The participant first receives a FREE consultation with Christopher Neithamer. 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 Christopher prior to the retreat. These sessions help prepare the retreatant to ensure they get the most out of their private retreat experience.

On Retreat

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 other 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 retreats, a co-facilitator may be introduced to offer additional experiential exercises.

The retreat schedule adapts to changes in the participant’s experience. This flexible approach allows for deep exploration.
