THE ARK

RESURRECTION RETREAT FOR digital people
A special retreat program
that helps to connect with the body,
enhance the human identity in its somatic part,
and develop the authenticity - a quality that is the foundation for good health, a stable mind, and true creativity.
There is no other spirituality than embodiment

The body is the foundation of human existence, its visible and tangible layer, the projection of all processes of life into the matter.


Our sensations are the main marker of connection with reality.

Feeling your own weight is the basic confirmation that you exist, and feeling the size of your body is a direct experience of your boundaries.


By setting up a connection with the body, by making sensations a significant factor in decision-making, one finds support within oneself, stops burning out, and learns a number of tools for self-healing, and most importantly, understands their importance.

We'll get your people to a mountain retreat for a week

We will create a safe, comfortable and equal environment for them. Within the entire week they will have a really good sleep and delicious healthy food.


We'll start with the meeting circle in the first evening - discovering the stories, current states, relations with the body and touch.

Then bodywork and rest.


Starting from the next day, we create a flexible schedule from embodiment classes and group psychology sessions, leaving time for containing the experience and rest. Other than that, people will get personal massage and osteopathy sessions as well as the opportunity of personal sharing with psychologist.


Day by day, the new embodied identity will unfold

and the group dynamic will develop.


In the end they will feel rested, cared and together.


The retreat program does not contradict with work

and can be combined with reduced hours of the main job.

We build up a space of senseless togetherness

Since the war started, we'll all got a problem.


Young people working in IT want to live in peace but don't know how.



Ignoring the issue is not the option since it leads to ignorance.


We have quite an experience in conflict resolution


This not gonna be the main focus, but a powerful background of what we do


We will create a human and inclusive space


We suggest to take Ukrainian as the main language of the retreat


People from Belarus understand 90%, from russia - 70%.

If they ask again, we will answer in their language.


We aim to create a precedent for humanity and deliberate interaction,

which can start a conscious communication culture that can spread to companies and, more generally, to the IT environment
