The Parkour Leadership & Education Retreat, more fondly known as the Art of Retreat, is a weekend long experience, with content and activities co-created by those attending.  Though each year is a little different depending on who is coming, you can expect:

    A robust schedule of interactive talks and discussions in areas of education, movement, business, leadership, science, and design.
    Time dedicated for exploring smaller or early stage ideas that don't quite need the full 90minutes.
  • Group meals and social activities both during the day and in the evenings.
    Kick off every morning with movement classes, exposing you to other disciplines, including yoga, capoeira, primitive skills, and more.
  • Time for making personal and professional connections.
  • A dedicated session to project brainstorming and problem-solving, where you can work with others to make progress on your projects


September 28 - 30

The Retreat officially starts the evening of Friday the 28th and runs through the weekend, ending the evening of Sunday September 30.  Participants will be expected to stay with the group during these hours.


Seattle, Washington
All conversations, sessions, evening activities, provided housing, and group meals will be in or near Seattle Washington, with the exact location still TBD.  More information & maps will be released closer to the date. 


This event is volunteer organized and lead; without the generous donation of time, energy, and love by our team, it would be impossible to deliver such an amazing experience.
