In the 6-12 months after the program there will be several calls and surveys to support integration into daily life.

Frequently Expressed Curiosities

It's hard understand at first. We know!
Here are some F.A.Q's that can help.

Is Sleepawake a mental wellness retreat?

Well, sort of. Sleepawake focuses on emotional and relational wellness, but does not provide medical care or professional mental health services. We welcome applicants with mental health diagnoses, but use the application process to check that it's a mutual fit.

Is Sleepawake religious?

Sleepawake is not religious. Religion is, of course, welcome.

Are there any strict rules at Sleepawake?

Sleepawake is a substance-free camp, not because we think drugs are outright bad, but because they can alter the way people interact with their internal emotional landscape, often numbing or disconnecting us from ourselves. Sleepawake also uses confidentiality, as it is a container space for the people attending. There are other agreements that we require applicants to accept in order to attend. For more information, feel free to contact us.

How much does Sleepawake Cost?

We don't want financial constraints to be a barrier if this program is a fit for you. The full tuition cost is $7,495 per student. Financial aid is available.

What modality does Sleepawake use?

Sleepawake doesn't use a specific program, modality, or theory of practice. Instead, it uses many! The combined experience of our team allows us to embrace all sorts of practices and use them in tandem.
