QUESTIONS

Is this Rooral experiece aligend with me? Who typically joins?

Participants on a Rooral retreat are normally well travelled professionals with diverse personalities and interests. The common denominator is the desire to slow down and living a more connected and regenerative lifestyle.

 

Our average age of Rooralists is mid 30's to mid 40's, but we've welcomed people of all ages. When it comes to roles, we have hosted people from the whole spectrum: from CEOs and entrepreneurs, to artists and nature experts. The more diverse, the more learning & fun!

 

An important point is it's not necessary to be working on something in order to participate. Many joining us are taking time off, are retired, or just deciding what comes next in life and are looking for some inspiration.

 

Since regeneration is one of the organizing principles of Rooral, many participants are passionate about environment, deepening into local cultures and looking forward to connecting with rural wisdom.

When can I join?

2024 we are open May, June, September, October, November and December.

 

We accept bookings for entire weeks, being the minimum stay 2 weeks. This is because we want to make sure you have enough time to land, savour pueblo life and  feel the benefits of slow living.

We centralize check-ins and check-outs on Sundays, as we provide a curated experience and  want to make your stay as smooth as possible. Write to us if this is not an option for you and we can discuss potential options.
