Frequently asked Questions

Q: Why 7 Days?


7 Days of Rest holds both symbolic and pragmatic significance. On a symbolic level, the number 7 has profound meaning in many spiritual traditions and the concept of 7 levels of space, time, color and sound can be found across cultures.

A week is a unit of time, a cycle of activity and rest according to which we organize ourselves in modern life. A week offers a natural opportunity for participants to undergo a significant journey, a process of deepening immersion into the vibration of rest and healing.

The first day of the new year, 1.01 amplifies the energy of a fresh beginning - seeded through a sacred collective process from which a new blueprint for a thriving planet can take root and grow.

Q: If I live in the city, should I take the time off and retreat to a place that is closer to nature?

This is a personal decision. The rest we envision invites resting from business as usual to move forward in the New Year in a new and healthy way for all. This intention can be manifested in many different ways - both through a personal retreat in nature - to finding new, healing and replenishing ways in the midst of city life.

Q: What is planned to happen after the event is over?

With the completion of the 7 Days & Radical Healing 2021, individuals and communities will be invited to continue to connect as a global community. Our intention is to build the foundations of an ongoing virtual community platform that will enable a vibrant co-creative sharing space where we can together evolve a new form of eco-governance and sacred stewardship of the planet. The community platform will align with Codes for a Healthy Earth as the core value system and organizing principles. Codes for a Healthy Earth provide a unifying framework for citizen-led self-organization towards cultural and systemic transformation and healing. You are invited to learn more about Codes for a Healthy Earth and consider joining the Codes Community as well.
