Product Info: Retreat
This service allows you to enjoy the education of a conference and writing time of a retreat all from the comfort of your home.
Each retreat is designed with the neurodivergent brain in mind, offering visual cues suggesting breaks according to the Pomodoro method without breaking the concentration of anyone hyper focusing on their writing. Then at the end of each writing session there will be an auditory indication it’s time to switch activities.
The writing sessions will all start with a guided meditation to aid in bringing the mind into focus and shutting out all other obstacles and distractions.
