RESILIENCE AT THE LAKE

- A 4-Day Gathering -

 

The world seems to be getting crazier by the day - and we could actually use a break. Instead, the stress just keeps piling on.

No wonder resilience has become one of the most prevalent buzzwords of our time. But can we really improve our ability to handle the ever-growing demands on our important work towards a better future? What does it take to develop a resilient personality, organization, or even society? 

Spoiler: Community and recreation are among the most important factors in this craft.

​That's why we offer this gathering for both alumni and (new) friends of the Transformation Design Academy - a gathering of like-minded people supporting, relaxing, and learning with each other.

In this camp, there's no pressure to perform. Yes, it's a co-creative training. But what you will make of it is up to you. We will only provide a basic frame to ensure that all participants get to know each other and offer to explore the basics of resilience together.

Besides that, there will be plenty of room for you to bring in other topics, hang out, enjoy the sauna by the lake or take a peaceful trip on one of our stand-up paddleboards.

DAY 1

BUILDING THE BASE

The afternoon of the first day at the camp is reserved for settling in, getting to your room, grabbing a snack, checking out the villa & the surroundings, and meeting your fellow camp-participants.

In the early evening, we all come together, getting to know each other a bit deeper through a first exercise, enjoying a delicious dinner together, and setting up the BarCamp >. We gather all of our and your ideas on what we would like to share and practice with the group (whether it's resilience-related or not) and together create a basic schedule for the days to come.

DAY 2 & 3

CO-CREATION

This is how a typical day at our camp could look like:

You wake up in the morning to the singing of the birds, open the bungalow door, and first see the lake lying still in the morning sun. The brave among you may choose to take a quick dip in the lake instead of hopping into the shower, or perform the sun salutation on the shore. Afterwards, a delicious breakfast awaits you in the villa, which you enjoy while chatting with other camp participants about what you feel like doing today.
 

Around 10 o'clock, we gather together, start with an embodiment exercise, and then split up as we please to engage in various activities throughout the day (inputs, workshops, discussions,
self-experience exercises, sports...).
 

At half past 12, the bell rings, calling everyone together for lunch. Afterward, you might want to take some time for yourself, so you grab a SUP board and enjoy the tranquility of the lake. But only until 4 o'clock, then you may  host a workshop on a topic that's close to your heart, which you can now share with a grateful audience.
 

In the evening, the outdoor oven is fired up for self-made pizzas, and because you might feel a bit chilly afterward, you may be even more tempted to try out the barrel sauna or gather around the campfire. By the time a few glasses of beer or wine have been enjoyed, more and more people get in the mood for dancing, and the party continues in the villa.

WHAT IS RESILIENCE?

IT'S GOOD ;-)

Resilience is more than bouncing back from adversity, challenges, or setbacks. It encompasses not only adapting to difficult situations and maintaining a positive outlook but also delving into the roots of our responses to stressors and transforming them into sources of growth. At the camp, we'll explore resilience as the capacity to emerge from challenges more empowered and capable than before.

HOW WILL WE CO-CREATE?

THEORY, PRACTICE &
A HUGE BUNCH OF: NOTHING!

To harness the knowledge, experiences, and creativity within the group, we organize this gathering as a BarCamp. At a BarCamp, the agenda is set by the attendees themselves at the beginning of the event.

In addition to our suggestions for resilience-related theoretical input and exercises that encourage reflection and strengthen connections, you are warmly invited to bring your own topics, formats, and exercises and to practice as facilitators, yoga instructors or perhaps djs. Whatever resonates with the group will find its place.

 

In addition to the official program, there's always the opportunity to retreat, enjoy nature, journal, warm up in the sauna with a view over the lake, chat by the campfire, dance, and play.

DAY 4

TRANSFER

If everything has gone smoothly, the camp has been a vibrant experience of the present moment for you. At this juncture, let's reflect on what we can take from the past few days into our daily lives. In doing so, we will both individually and collectively contemplate the transfer.
 

What remains? We strive to ensure that you retain experiences that have not only affected your mind but also deeply resonated within your body and consciousness. Connections that accompany you beyond the camp. And a beautiful memory that warms your heart for a long time to come.

FAQ

FAQ

Q: Is this like a regular training that I would book at the Transformation Design Academy?

A: No, this is truly a co-creative event. We organize the gathering beforehand to bring us together at the same time at the same place, set the basic rules for our mutual experience and provide first ideas to get us going. However, you are as responsible for its success as anybody else.

Q: What are the basic rules that I need to follow if I want to join in?

A: We are all guests at Neupitz and must adhere to their house rules. Additionally, co-creation necessitates mutual respect, willingness to cooperate, and adherence to collective decisions. We also request that you follow our basic facilitation prompts and introductions to ensure a seamless group experience.

Q: Is this a therapeutic program?
A: No, this is a co-creative training designed to train us some basic skills for managing acute stress and challenging situations. It offers a relaxed time-out, meaningful connections, and opportunities for personal growth. However, we'll also provide hints for further development that may guide you deeper into your healing journey. Ultimately, you decide how deep you want to delve and what you're ready to process.

Q: Do I need to participate in weird exercises?
A: Personally, we don't consider our suggested exercises weird, but you're always welcome to opt out if you prefer :-)

Q: What is included in the fees?
A: 3 Nights in cozy 2 single-bed rooms or bungalows
(some with lake view) with private bathrooms, 3 delicious vegetarian or vegan meals a day (starting with dinner at the first day and ending with lunch on the last day) + coffee/tea and snacks throughout the day, the whole charming villa and outside area to ourselves, sauna with panoramic view over the lake. 

 

Q: Can I reserve a single room?
A: Unfortunately, we're unable to offer single rooms due to limited availability. However, you're welcome to bring a tent or camper if that's feasible for you! Please note that spots for tents and campers are limited, so it's best to inquire beforehand. The price for food and accommodation remains the same, as it's already heavily discounted.

Q: Who are the organizers?
A: The camp is organized by Sven Stegemann and his team at the Transformation Design Academy. This academy offers training in systemic transformation consulting and related skills and topics. While most of our programs are currently taught in German, we are in the process of expanding our offerings.
