The Gathering

PossibilitySpace: Restoring. Planting. Nourishing.

Enchantivism = Enchantment + Activism

Are you a Positive Maverick?

Do you swim upstream when everyone else swims downstream?

Are you passionate about self-sovereign living and eco-system restoration?

Our vision is to host a unique space and opportunity for a small group of exceptional people to come together and explore new forms of life centric leadership and cultural development.

Imagination  Rekindled

To be able to restore vitality to our local and global eco-systems, we need to re-learn how to regenerate ourselves.

“Clear thinking, creatively confident, emotionally flexible and resilient people are more effective are restoring the world’s living capital.” The Regenerative Enterprise

On Idun’s Quest we are reclaiming imagination as a wisdom skill for regenerative enterprise. This enables us to cultivate novel neural networks for personal agency and flourishing, visionary communities and regenerative enterprise.

When we apply our wise imagination to hone our own style and form of enchantivism, we can explore and establish more diverse and hopeful dreams and stories about the future. 

Fusing imagination with the art of intentionless intent, we are able to bring forth our natural wisdom into original and creative expression that enables us to re-wild our inner landscapes, as well as outer world.

Through this we cultivate enlightened leadership – 

“As I liberate my own being, may I benefit others.”

Re-wild your Mind

This 12 day personal leadership development and creativity retreat will unfold in the beautiful environment of Pisaq and Sacred Valley, Peru. Here you will restore your Salka  (undomesticated energy) and discover Idun’s Garden.

You will be surrounded with music and songs, folklore, cosmology and restorative approaches from the Andean mountain traditions.

Detouring from the mainstream (spiritual and consciousness) tourism track, we will guide you in becoming more familiar with your natural imagination and other positive qualities, and inspire your personal regenerative leadership development practice and business. 

Learn Eco-Somatic Integration 

Working on your own regenerative project, you will learn special techniques, time tested approaches and be inspired by nature-based mindfulness and somatic therapy.

You will practice how to cultivate your positive identity, retrieve personal wellbeing and restore life force. You will gain insights into the benefits of incorporating eco-therapy in personal growth and leadership development; and cultivating your “inner landscape” through creative meditation, the art of embodied philosophy and expressive therapy.

At the end of the retreat, you will leave empowered with simple tools, resources and access to a network of peers and facilitators to help you continue your own path of revitalization and positive impact.

You will gain insights into how to adapt this body of work to your own context and environment, including business enterprise.

Google outside of your Self

We will move you out of your comfort zone to provide time to experience people who live a self-sovereign life. Intentional activities will give you many opportunities to connect positively with Sacred Valley’s local economy and communities.

The purpose of incorporating learning from various local guest facilitators, such as Tours for Your Soul, is to demonstrate diverse approaches to living a quality life including food and financial independence.  

You will have the opportunity to experience the joys of disconnecting from computer technology and algorithms that manage your life, and savour the pleasure of simple living, wholesome food and good conversations.
