The main purpose is for linguistic researchers to get writing – or similar – done in an intensive getaway retreat. The background for your information: after an absolutely fabulous writers' retreat under the expert supervision of Sarah Haas in September 2021, I wanted to propose the format to the doctoral school. Well, it turns out that I have not gotten around to it. Hence this informal retreat instead. In short, the formula comprises three pillars: (1) writing/analyzing/working/stretching (2) well-being (3) body-mind integration.
A rather informal approach with rotational roles
Let Greet know if you want to share a room and with whom.
Let Greet know any food preferences or resitrictions:
Notify your supervisor where you will be.
Get in touch if you want to carpool (preferred) or need a pick-up/drop-off at the railway station of Verviers-Central .
Bring bed linen (covers for mattress, duvet and pillow).
Bring bath linen.
Bring along easy clothes.
Bring a pair of slippers along. No outdoor shoes in the house. There is no floor heating, so bring socks if you easily have cold feet.
Bring along a pair of hiking boots. We are in the Belgian Eifel after all.

The Dojo-Haus is privately run by Greet and Dominique.
They lovingly renovated the derelict place from 2014 to 2017. They combined their full-time jobs with driving to and fro on the weekends, tagging two children along, and giving up summer holidays to fulfill their Dojo-Haus dream.
They now welcome the MULTIPLES researchers community. The success of a writers’ retreat at the Dojo-Haus depends on co-creation and fair – mainly local – resources.
