“You know how you finish a bag of chips and you hate yourself? You know you’ve done nothing good for yourself. That’s the same feeling, and you know it is, after some digital binge. You feel wasted and hollow and diminished.”

Dave Eggers, The Circle


There’s nothing wrong with feeling connected, but it’s one of the great modern ironies that the more connected we may be online, the less connected we feel in spirit.

For the first time, we’re hosting a three week Unplugged Urban Retreat – a time to cut our technological tethers for a short while and reconnect to our friends, our environment and ourselves.

This retreat does not cost anything to be a part of, nor is there an end goal. It is purely an invitation to join us in letting go of our electronic toys for three weeks and discover what’s on offer in our world through our senses alone. Over the course of three weeks you will:


  • Eschew social media and email as much as possible outside of work responsibilities.
  • Eschew recorded music, films, television or any other electronic medium, focusing instead on live music, reading and gathering with friends.
  • Send and receive a weekly letter, in the mail, with your fellow Unpluggers.
  • Be invited to a weekly community dinner at Egg Of The Universe, with support meeting beforehand to encourage you along the way.
  • Be invited to weekend activities such as hiking, swimming and picnicking in the local area.
  • Be part of a three-week book club, reading Dave Eggers’ fascinating take on where technology is taking us, The Circle.
  • And of course, indulge yourself in as much yoga and meditation as you can!


The extra activities may incur small costs, but you are welcome to pick and choose as you desire. We’ll have a sign up sheet at the front desk (no online booking in!), so put your name down and connect in to your local yoga community in a refreshing way!

Included for free!

Some events will have a charge depending on what they are, but otherwise it's all free.
