Thank you for choosing to assist the Tantric Couple Retreats
Thank you for stepping up to assist the Tantric Couple Retreats.
Assisting is about holding the space with the facilitators….what this essentially means is having your awareness on the space: the physical space and any needs it might have (light a candle, move some cushions, dim the lights etc), the emotional space (checking in with a couple who are emotional, giving someone a hug etc), the energetic space (being deeply present with the wide angle…not just in your own process, but feeling into the room and connecting to the light of consciousness, possibly leading some meditations or practices) and the practical space (helping people to their rooms, liaising with the retreat center, asking the facilitators what they need).
Please assist when you feel called to be part of the space-holding….this is not about just joining in a retreat without paying course fees!
In exchange, you will be given the full course fees,
You will have to pay the fees for the food and accommodation, which sometimes involves a discounted rate for assistants. This depends on the particular retreat center. If you wish also to generate some extra income from course fees, then speak to us and we can arrange an affiliate fee for any couples that you enroll onto the course,
Assistants Tasks: • Arrive a day early for 5 day+ retreats, or 3 hours for weekend retreats before the start time to decorate and prepare the space with us, tune in energetically and plan the schedule • Welcome participants and direct them to their rooms. Possibly hand out COVID self tests. • Step up to offer support to any couples that might be struggling • Check in with facilitators to see if they need anything • Help set up space for rituals and practices • Lead morning practices, 1 hour (depends on the assistants experience and on the retreat) • Help clear the space and pack down after a retreat
Also of course it is important for all team members to have some capacity to put their own process aside and hold space for the group by seeing everyone else and observing their processes. This is the ultimate underlying foundation of holding space and our greatest contribution to the retreat.
Thank you for your desire to support the healing and transformation of other couples, as well as increasing your own capacity for holding space. If you have any questions or wish to go over some of these points, please connect with us prior to the retreat: we can make a video call and prepare together for holding space.
