Albir, Spain

3rd – 5th April 2020

After 5 successful Space for Connection retreats in the UK and 2 in Spain, it’s time for Spain’s 3rd time!  The next Spanish Space for Connection is ready to rumble!

What is Space for Connection?

A long weekend retreat where we create the space for connection, wisdom, friendship, curiosity, creativity, potential, freedom and a whole lot of fun!

Have you ever been to a course where you have benefited as much in the break times as you have in the training room through conversations and connections with peers?  We have too and that is where Space for Connection comes into its own.  

It is the perfect space to “stay in the 3P conversation” (without the presence of formal teaching) which means everything and anything is on offer! 

Each weekend has its own theme as a focal point lending itself to exploration by the group, gently facilitated by the team. 

Plus the whole weekend will be tailor made to the group.

Who is it for?

  • You may be in the business of sharing your understanding of the Principles in order to effect the transformations in individuals, communities, society, families, education … that you know is possible.
  • You may not be looking for formal certification or accreditation, but you are looking for greater depth and deeper grounding.
  • You welcome a unique opportunity to deepen the innate feeling of being comfortable in your own skin

Here’s what’s on offer in Spain

Creativity is our Birthright

A space for noticing and exploring creativity (and maybe creating a thing or two, who knows??)

Let’s spend the weekend together exploring the nature of creativity – what sparks it, what gets in the way and what sets us free?

Imagine what life would be like for you if some of your limiting ideas about yourself and the world fell away.

What could you see fresh and new for you?

The possibilities are endless.

Could we create something together that would be of benefit to our planet?

Who knows?

There is no particular teaching curriculum for this weekend. Creativity is the theme. We tailor make the weekend to the members of the group.

Join us?

Places are limited to 30 to allow time for everyone to meet each other in a relaxed and unhurried way.

Schedule (loose and flexible)

Friday: 6pm-8pm 

Saturday: 10am-1.30pm and 6pm-8pm

Sunday: 10am-1.30pm and 6pm-8pm

Long afternoon breaks are built into the schedule so that you can take advantage of the sunshine and local scenery. These breaks are still “space for connection” since many will want to stay together and walk, chat, have tea and generally enjoy time together.

This is the time we have scheduled to be in the room AND we are free to do as we please – the room is our base-camp.

 

What’s included in the price

  • Two nights’ accommodation in private room – 3rd and 4th April [also see Extras below]
  • Two days’ full board – breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Morning coffee break (a.k.a. ‘feast’!) on Saturday and Sunday at 11.30am
  • Full use of hotel’s essential gym facilities and pool

The Location

ALBIR is a beautiful coastal town on the Costa Blanca. The World Health Organisation has confirmed what many people had believed for years, namely that the Costa Blanca is one of the healthiest areas of the world in which to live. This isn’t surprising to those people who know the region. The Costa Blanca has an excellent year round climate. The humidity is relatively low, and therefore ideal for sufferers of arthritis and other climatically influenced health problems, and for those with an unhealthy bank account, the reasonable prices in the local cafés and restaurants don’t sting much either.

Albir’s beach has continually received the coveted European Union Blue Ribbon award annually since 2001. Our venue, the HOTEL ROBER PALAS is just a 10 minute walk to the beach and less than 5 minute walk to the local shops, cafés and restaurants. The famous lighthouse walk is only 15 minutes walk to the starting point.

Local airport
The local airport is ALICANTE which is only 63km from Albir. You will find many of the no frills airlines fly into Alicante at very reasonable prices.

Transfer to Albir
There are several companies that offer a shuttle service from Alicante airport to Albir. The one we know offering a door to door service (airport to hotel) is BeniConnect. They have a ‘normal’ and an ‘express’ service. Express costs €16 each way and guarantees a maximum of 4 stops – meaning a transfer of approximately 50 minutes. The normal service costs approx €8 each way – and can take up to 2 hours depending on drop offs and pick ups. You must book 24 hours ahead of time.

There is a bus that runs from Alicante airport to Benidorm (the next town down the coast) for approx €9.90 where you can pick up a local bus to Albir for around €2.

Taxis are always available at the airport and cost €90.
