You’re heading to Guatemala to live with a group of strangers–– which means you probably have questions. Luckily, we have answers!
What’s the COVID protocol?
You can find our detailed COVID contract here. By submitting your deposit, you agree to our COVID protocol.
What will my room be like?
To accommodate our group, we have reserved four properties in the same neighborhood–– La Reunion Golf Resort And Residencies. They are within a 5-minute drive or 20-minute walk of each other.
Our main “workspace” is a stunning property in the forest with a pool, sauna, hot tub, and central gathering space we’ll use for co-working and events.
You can see photos of all the properties, and reserve your room, here.
What’s the deal with wifi?
Each house has different wifi speeds and hot spot hubs, but in our main 2 houses that will be used as our workspace, we’ll have 100 MB/sec.
Wait, we have a chef!? How does food work?
We will have all the ingredients for breakfast, and it will be self-serve. Lunch will be prepared by our chef and available around the same time daily. Dinner will be a sit-down affair. There may be occasions where we decide to cook as a group or on behalf of the group. To be decided by…the group.
If you have dietary restrictions, please let us know ASAP
Where should I fly into?
The closest airport to our properties is Guatemala City Airport. You can coordinate landing times in this spreadsheet.
Will there be programming?
This is a co-created gathering, which means a majority of programmed events will be attendee-led. This is a unique opportunity for you to share your gifts, collaborate, and experiment in a safe environment with people who will both love on you and challenge you to improve. You can expect things like opening and closing ceremonies, attendee-lead talks and workshops, meditation, yoga, breathwork, and dance classes, jam sessions, recorded “lightning talks”, nightly family dinners, co-created experiential events, and anything else the group decides to create.
All that said, this is a “work hard play hard” culture. The expectation is that you’ll continue to do your normal work during the month, but in an incredible covid-free environment with other like-minded creators. We’ll have dedicated workspaces, designated work times, and possibly even facilitated work sprints. We can chat more about all of this on our call.
I want to know even more about the houses. Got any info for me?
If you’re a nerd for sustainability, you’ll love this article about our clubhouse, Casa Eco.
Who are the mysterious humans behind this thing?
I’m a location-independent podcast creator, software engineer, and coliving experience creator who’s been in the world of event production and experience design for years. I was the Exec. Coordinator of HATCH – a 4-day gathering of changemakers with the goal of “hatching” a better world when I was 20, and recently worked with an experiential dinner company called Secret Table in San Diego. This past August and September I brought together seven other entrepreneurs and creators in a house in Baja for a two-month coliving experience. (Working on the recap videos, but check out my Instagram stories or this podcast interview with housemate Kimberly Rich if you’re interested in getting a feel for that experience).
Hey, you beautiful souls! I’m an NYC-based author, facilitator, and coach. My weekly newsletter, The Joy List, has been curating the best community-centered experiences in New York since 2016. Its goal is to help people make new friends in a lonely city. In July of 2019, I released my first book, Un-Lonely Planet. The founder of Eventbrite, Kevin Hartz, once said I “embody a voice of how a new generation gathers to share experiences, learn and grow.” *Hair flip.*
Since quarantine began I have created and facilitated seven month-long courses on topics from making friends to confidence and boundary-setting. My upcoming project is called Everyday Spirituality. When I’m not facilitating and coaching one-on-one, you can find me studying as a community minister at Judson Memorial Church and talking to every dog I meet.
Hiiiiiii, I am Matt, and started my Nomad Career 5 years ago traveling the U.S. working for a few startups selling software to major universities. Once my little marketing agency was more self sufficient, I spent most of my time in Spain until I was eventually invited to follow a Zen Buddhist Master through China. This by far the most life changing experience I’ve had, and ultimately led me to Thailand. While there I came across a home called Koh Space which showed me the magic of coliving with 7 people and working in a small office on the first floor. Fast forward to 2018, I launched Nomadic6 with the ambition to open locations inspired by this model that fully encapsulates coliving, coworking, and community.
Why create Experience House now?
After too many weeks locked inside, our founders craved a space to practice their craft– bringing people together. Of course, this happens to be a forbidden art form during a pandemic. That’s why they dreamed up Experience House, a COVID-free opportunity to experiment with events and have fun with the most innovative minds in the space.
Our goal is for our guests to cross-pollinate, practice their craft, and collaborate on projects that never would have existed otherwise. This is a space where we can all learn from each other, get messy, have fun, and reignite our spark after a hard year.
We are more than happy to answer
