Next Flown

The best moments in life usually occur when a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.

— Mikhail Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Human Happiness

What is Flown?

FLOWN is a way to escape the noise and distraction of city life, open-plan offices, and co-working spaces – and get some real work done.

Research shows to get meaningful knowledge work accomplished requires periods of intensely focused attention without distraction, alongside periods of play and immersion in nature. This is “deep work”.

FLOWN offers you the mental and physical space to step out of your normal life for a few days to achieve flow and produce deep work, in beautiful, inspiring locations.

What are Flown Retreats?

JOIN US

We create deep work spaces in beautiful places, and invite you to join us for a few days to work on a personal project or explore new ideas.  

 

ANY TIME

You choose the duration of your stay – a few days, or a whole week. Just come along. 

 

IMMERSE IN NATURE

We source amazing villas and chateaus in the countryside where you can walk in the woods or be inspired by glorious natural vistas.

 

WORK HEALTHILY

We kit them out with proper work equipment, such as big desks, reliable wifi, and comfortable seating. 

 

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

We invite other entrepreneurs, scientists, thinkers, and creators to come and work alongside you. 

Be focused alone by day, and connected together by evening. 

 

JUST ENOUGH STRUCTURE

The daily schedule and process gives you the flexibility to work, learn, or think as hard as you like; with plenty of time for meandering, exercise, and reflection. 

 

Achieve extraordinary things

🌞 Every day

You decide what you will focus on, what you will learn, what you will contemplate, and how you will play.

🌛 Every Evening

You connect and eat with others also staying in the FLOWN space, and share your progress and learning.

You’ll feel proud of having accomplished something challenging, conceived of something important, and connected deeply with nature and yourself.
