Reset is piloting a retreat centre from February to August 2022 in Oakwood Village that will be a destination for those craving community, connection and collective joy. The centre will be a digital detox space with daily programming intended to facilitate rest, connection and just play. 

We believe there is an urgent need for joy. So, with the support of our partners at Forty Two Communities, we are piloting this retreat centre for six months. If it appears as though we are creating benefits for the community within this period, we will transition from pilot to permanent.

WHY?

We wanted to experiment with an offering that has the potential to help us heal, process our grief, and develop deeper relations, with ourselves, each other, and the world around us. 
 
And even if it doesn’t do any of these things, if there is one thing that the last few years have taught us, it is that we must make space for collective joy. Space to just play, just because.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. You can purchase a membership or a drop in pass. 

  2. When you arrive, hand in your personal technology devices. 

  3. Once that’s done: play, be or have free tea. 

  4. You can also participate in one of our daily dance parties at 7am or 7pm, the laugh circle at 6pm, or community offered programming

WHAT IT COSTS

  • $0 for a cup of tea 

  • $10 for 1 hour of lounge time or dance party  

  • $300 for a Founding Membership 

  • We hope that members of our community will offer programming as well, however they are invited to offer their programming at a price of their preference. Please see below for more details.

What is Founding Membership?

Being a Founding Member means that you are one of the 150 people who put their hands up first and at a time when there’s a lot to still figure out. Founding Memberships costs $300 for the entire 6 month pilot, payable at the beginning of the membership.

Are drop in passes available?
Not into committing to membership but want to try it out? We got you! In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing a process around how to book space if you’re dropping in.

Can I provide my own programming? 

If you’re interested in providing programming, you’re welcome to bring your toys and games to the space. If you want to host something more akin to a workshop, training, etc, cool and  please reach out so we can explore! Any revenues directly from your offering would go directly to you.
