2023 April: Introvert’s Retreat Week – Golden Silence

$6,000.00

Spend a week in focus-mode on a beautiful campus designed to be a retreat.

Arrive Monday and settle in.
Starting Tuesday morning, you’ll work silently in the Tower Classroom, alongside your peers on the beautiful Wizard Academy campus.

Depart Friday having accomplished something amazing. Write a book, plan the next 6 months, create that thing you’ve been dreaming about.

We’ve often had students say they wish they could spend a bit more time on campus. Introverts wish they could just be here in silence and work while everyone around them kept quiet. Extraverts wish they could hang out with like-minded friends for mutual encouragement.

We’re in the wish-granting business.

This is an Introvert’s dream come true, and will be a transformative experience for Extroverts.

We’ll transform the Eye of the Storm classroom and Library level into a quiet sanctuary.

  • The tables and chairs will be arranged like a library study carrel.
  • The snack table, coffee makers and beverages will be moved to the dining room.*
  • The Bell will be silenced.
  • The sound system will be turned off.

Throughout the day, Dave Young and Daniel Whittington will be available in case you need another human being to run your thoughts, ideas, or progress past another human being. Then you may return to the tower to continue working.

Stay in the tower for as long as you like, take breaks when needed, roam the campus, or simply work in your room if you prefer.

Here’s the schedule we have in mind…
