The retreat is not a common family holidays open to anyone who is willing to pay. It is a particular event for meeting supporters of self-directed learning. The program, although usually rich and varied, is not primary our responsibility as organizers. Instead, we strive to create safe and motivational environment in which children and adults have the opportunity to discover and search for their own self and without fear of being themselves.
Surely there can be many situations where the needs of individuals and their individual wishes will not correspond. This is normal and desirable because we understand this as a great opportunity for the whole community to learn to seek consensus and to develop decent and open communication. For example, if someone chooses not to sleep all night, there is no need to send him to bed - the only thing for those who are in this situation is to deal with how not to disturb the sleep of a people who chooses to sleep.
Our perception of ethics is based on the so-called non-aggression principle (NAP). If you are not familiar with it, please read the definition here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-aggression_principle.
In case you will not know how to deal with a certain situation, we are here for you - you can ask us to help (advice, intervention, mediation).
We always organise one or more sharing evenings regarding coexistence in SvobodUm at each retreat.
Ensuring a safe environment in the sense of nonviolence and tolerance to differences and diverse needs of all kinds is the main purpose of the stay we will share together. We look forward to all the new challenges and learning from each other.
Please note that we do not regulate use of technologies (phones, tablets, notebooks) during the retreat. However, we respect any internal rules you may have in your family.
Nevertheless, if anybody of you feels uncomfortable being photographed and/or filmed, please highlight it at the opening meeting and others will surely try to respect your will. However, we cannot guarantee that you will not be photographed and/or filmed neither that everyone will remember your choice. Please, be assertive and communicate. Thank you for your understanding :-)
