RESTART Yourself To Get Unstuck

What is a 3 day RESTARTS event?

It is a 3-day retreat. In which You will restart your life. You will get good feelings, inspiration and You will become someone that You aspire to be.

It is about the practical application of breath-work, hardening the nervous and immune system. That is on the physiological side. On the other side – it is about getting calmer and more self-conscious, mindful and fulfilled.
This could be achieved through movement, being active, sound and joy. It is all about how to set the intention for maintaining one’s well-being, finding the purpose of life and feeling good.

This is Your chance to learn and practice new tools to become happy!

Who is this event for?

Do You ever need to take pause and breathe in? Would You like to restart Your life? Then it is for You. Get rid of the stress, improve Your brain function, get more energy and overall well-being.
This is a fine balance between physical, rational and scientific approach as well as feelings, spiritual and mental sides of our existence.
Three days. High level professional coaches, Olympic trainers. Practical workshops. Valuable knowledge. Towards habit creation. A journey with like-minded people will give You an exceptional experience. Positive energy for the rest of Your life.
Odds are that You have never experienced anything like that before in 3 days!

Organizers vision

It is not about entertainment and cool things. RESTARTS team runs these event for almost 2 years and has improved lives for more than few hundred people.
The content and masterclasses are put together in a unifying way, and everything rotates around the central idea of getting people unstuck.  
It is hugely important to talk about activating nervous system that often keeps us shut-down or frozen. So in all workshops this very point is addressed from different perspectives. 
This retreat is not self-help event. This is to restart and synchronize mind, body, spirit and emotions within 3 days.
This is how You get unstuck.

What to expect from the event?

Everybody has their own problems and issues. Perhaps You want to address some professional problems, perhaps Your issue is the relationships, or get priorities straight. Maybe it is the digestion or sleep – in general – health problems.  Whatever Your worries are – all can be addressed by extending Your comfort zone. And quit telling self-limiting-stories and having self-limiting-beliefs. 

As Dr. Jerome Bruner, a Harvard psychologist elegantly puts it: “You’re more likely to act yourself into feeling than feeling yourself into action.

Benefits

It is about the experience. And few tactics how to get unstuck: — recognize what makes you stuck in the first place; — start collecting the tools to get out of freeze mode; — shake up and activate the nervous system; — synchronize/ harmonize brain, body, nervous system. Get into the perfect alignment; — learn self regulation mechanisms to get rid of mental and psychological blocks. It all will be achieved through:  
  • nutrition, healthy eating
  • breath-work and relaxation techniques;
  • improve your sleep;
  • brain activation through somatic movement;
  • hardening and comfort zone extension;
  • emotional regulation and habit creation.

Why biohacking?

Biohacking is not an ideology, nor a specific dogma. That’s more like a framework how to enhance ones health and well-being. Via science, technology and nature.
Biohacking basic premise is – recognition of what damages us/ make us weak and what makes us stronger/ healthier. 
Where we need to decrease the rate of damage and increase the rate of repair and enhancement. 
It is a systemic approach and strategy to make ourselves better.  To increase not only life span, but also the health span. Through creating habits, building muscle, resilience, sleep better. Actually, to find more and better tools for self-regulating when the times are bad and life is hard. 

Magic place- Kalnmuiža Manor

Kalnmuiža Manor, also called Hohenberg in German, is a medium-sized former private manor in Kandava Municipality on the left bank of the ancient Abava River valley, 10 km away from Kandava, Latvia. And 40km from the beautiful medieval city Kuldiga. As a legal and economic unit, the manor has been around since at least the end of the 15th century. The central manor house and utility buildings were built in the beginning of the 19th century.
The manor house is located on a hill, which offers an excellent view to the apple orchard on its slopes. Since 2006, an elegant hotel with large celebration halls and a restaurant has been operating at the manor house and the nearby Slope Building.

More awareness, more clarity, less stress. More energy, more enhanced life. Since You will learn not to waste energy on useless and distracting things in your life.

How to create mental models, how to hack the habit creating by hacking trauma through the nervous system activation. To recognize the priorities and paying attention to them. Where the attention goes, energy flows – health, family, relationships, money, hobby, creativity, spiritual practice. To live long and fulfilled life.

It’s not about the instant change. About the 180′ transformation from today over to tomorrow. It’s more about 1 degree change. That really does not mean to resign from your corporate soul sucking job right away. It is more about finding meaning and purpose right here, right now, wherever you are.

How to recover, how to start the best day of your life.  

Corporate job has almost taken away my spirit and life energy. That’s where I found pleasure in seeking for ways to recharge myself. All through practice of Xi Gong, breath-work and movement. To seek for perfect alignment of energy – body, mind and spirit. 

Masterclasses of Nordic walking, Xi gong and breathing, socializing and finding peace of mind. 

This is exactly how I aspire to start every single day. As well as finishing it this way too.

How to do it? What tools would help to get this kind of energy?

Qi Gong (/ˈtʃiːˈɡɒŋ/), qi gong, chi kung (Chinese: 气功) is a centuries-old system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qi gong is traditionally viewed by the Chinese and throughout Asia as a practice to cultivate and balance, translated as “life energy”.

Qi gong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow-flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a calm meditative state of mind. People practice qi gong throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise, relaxation, preventive medicine, self-healing, alternative medicine, meditation, self-cultivation, and training for martial arts.

In this workshop it is about various breathing techniques to release the tension, to get more resiliency and find ways to deal with the daily stress. It is about flexing the autonomous nervous system .

You will learn different breath-work techniques, you’ll gain knowledge how to start hardening yourself in the cold water. It is called cold thermo-genesis. To become comfortable with cold. This will be achieved through breathing variations like Wim Hof breathwork, box-breathing, conscious breathing. Focusing one’s attention is to focus Your attention on life. How you breathe is how you live. And eventually – where your attention goes, your energy flows.

Nutrition, eating habits, life-style, tactics, approaches and introduction to fasting

Matserclass about life-style, nutrition and behavior towards food. Few basic principles of healthy eating regardless of the fact if you are vegan, vegetarian, paleo or keto. 

Nowadays we’re a rushed, distracted, and too-busy society. Most people in Western societies eat fast. Really fast. We rarely take the time to savor our food… or sometimes even to chew it properly. So slow eating as well as fundamental ideas of (intermittent) fasting are very important ideas for healthy life. To have energy and good feelings all day every day. Biohacking and holistic approach to nutrition, habits and behavior. 

Jekabs Dambergs - improvization, drama therapy & comfort zone
Improwise founder & actor, Just The Funny Improv Comedy, Miami, USA

Drama therapy is a type of therapy that uses theatrical techniques and concepts to bring about meaningful change. It gives a way to express one’s feelings, interact with others, and rehearse healthy behaviors. Drama therapy expert David R. Johnson defines this method of treatment as “the intentional use of creative drama toward the psychotherapeutic goals of symptom relief, emotional and physical integration, and personal growth”. The goals of drama therapy are often described as follows:

  • Promote positive behavioral changes
  • Improve interpersonal relationship skills
  • Integrate physical and emotional well-being
  • Achieve personal growth and self-awareness
  • Improve overall quality of life.

Biodanza, praktiskais psihologs, stresa vadības un cienošās komunikācijas trenere

Biodanza is a series of dance and movement exercises to music, designed to give you an intense experience of the here and now – the present moment. We call it a VIVENCIA, or being ‘in vivencia’. As our rational thinking mind has become dominant and controls our behavior to an unprecedented degree, our instincts, feelings and emotions have been forced to take a back seat to the detriment of our overall health and well-being.

By becoming ‘present’, by being ‘in the moment’ (in vivencia) our instincts, feelings and emotions have a chance to manifest and be expressed – from the heart and through the body. This is a welcome and much needed opportunity in this day and age, and the process, over time, produces some remarkable therapeutic effects.

How to distribute your energy, mind-set, inspiration

More clarity, self-awareness, less stress. More energy.
How to distribute your energy throughout the day. To find priorities in your life. According to the energy distribution model in 5 categories – autonomous processes (inner organs), physical processes (muscle, mind), automation processes (habits, routines), professional processes (work) and creative/spiritual processes.
What happens if one or two of categories expends more energy? Logically, the rest gets less. Therefore so many get sick, don’t reach their goals, hate their job, and postpone self-development for years. This is how one gets life of silent desperation.
The key is to find your own balance among the 5 categories. If people will ask how you get things done, have beautiful relationships with others and even look great – that is a criterion for happy and fulfilled life in all 5 categories. What Japanese call – IKIGAI.

Forest Bathing (Therapy) - mindfulness and silencing the mind's destructive dialogues

In Japan the concept is called forest bathing, or shinrin-yoku. Shinrin in Japanese means “forest,” and yoku means “bath.” So shinrin-yoku means taking in the forest through our senses.
This is not exercise, or hiking, or jogging. It is simply being in nature, connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. Shinrin-yoku is like a bridge. By opening our senses, it bridges the gap between us and the natural world.
Never have we been so far from merging with the natural world and so divorced from nature. According to a study sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency, the average Westerner spends 93% of his or her time indoors.
A two-hour forest bath will help you to unplug from technology and slow down. It will bring you into the present moment and de-stress and relax you.

Biohacking tools, habits, routines

Neurohackers and biohackers at a more basic level technology is as an indispensable tool that can enable a better version of being on a daily basis. If you’re someone who wants more from yourself and your life and loves the idea of using both natural resources and technology to get it, you’re essentially adopting the mindset of a neurohacker or a biohacker. youRESTART event is about to connecting science, technology and nature.

During the event there will be many biohacking tools and tech gadgets available. From spike mats (Pranamant), to self-measuring and self-enhancement devises. All part of biohacking tool-kit.

Experience from youRESTART 3 day events

"There were days when I felt myself as a cold bottle of Champagne. Though there were many more days when I felt myself as a rotten sour juice bottle. The bottle that lies somewhere in the basement and nobody needs it.
youRESTART was like a might hit right on the bottle neck that let the cork loose with a loud blast. So now I can enjoy this cool glass of Champagne, not even once thinking back about that old insipid juice."

  • Why should you participate? Because the title completely justifies the benefits. Physical, spiritual, emotional restart.
  • Breath-work – I discovered the depth and potential of breathing. 
  • I’ve never paid a second thought to the importance of the breath-work on a daily basis. Now I know – how you breathe is how you live.
  • Cold exposure – contrast showers is now my everyday practice. As well as diving deeper into the topic of breathing.
  • Everyday cold showers cannot be taken away from me after RESTARTS. It all combined with morning somatic exercises. And not to mention that now I am fermenting my veggies to feed by gut bacteria.
  • If you love yourself you should invest in yourself. youRESTART event is the best how to start actually proving to yourself not in words but with actions. It is that only during the youRESTART 3-day event you recognize what are the real life values.
  • I was stuck. Completely frozen. I gathered all my energy to come to the event. I am grateful because I learned how I can feel, when I activate my nervous system. It’s not that I am unstuck now. It is a long term work. But I know what’s possible.
