With a trend in the US demonstrating a shift towards co-living communities, Restival already has this at its heart, working hand in hand with the Navajo tribe and local communities such as the STAR School. This is the first all off-grid, solar and wind powered, charter school in the country, whose vision is to create a learning community promoting self-reliance, alternative building methods and natural energy sources.

In Restival, founder Caroline Jones has created an off the grid experience which invites you to disconnect and then reconnect:

“Technology isn’t supposed to isolate us, it wasn’t designed to do that, but it does. It’s about being in the moment with another person. The local tribes that we meet on our travels do just that – they connect.  They communicate the old fashioned way, the way us humans were meant to.  It means we could care for one another more, be there for them, listen and engage with each other at Restival. That’s really hard to do on a text don’t you think?” Caroline Jones.

Restival is not a ‘digital detox’ that will be undone within days of returning home. It’s a life affirming, game changer. Book now for the best Christmas present you can give to yourself, or a loved one.
