“RetreatNetwork.com is a marketplace that brings together Members and Users, and empowers them to connect,” says Assaf Kostiner, RetreatNetwork.com co-founder and VP of Marketing & Sales. “Our Members – retreat owners and event organizers, list their venues and events for free, and our Users search, filter and sort the offerings and find the program that serves them best on their journey of wellbeing, personal development and spiritual growth.

“We believe that the way to create a world that works for everyone is by working together. Wherever we look, we see partners, we see brothers and sisters, we see a reflection of ourselves,” continues Ilan, “So our business development and marketing strategies are based on partnerships, cross-promotions, collaborations and joint-ventures – the business expressions of Love. If you look at somebody and see a competitor, it’s probably time for you to go on a retreat and do some inner work… This is an open invitation to collaborate and co-create together,” says Ilan, “If we share the same vision and you’re in the business of creating & empowering communities, let’s talk and explore ways to support each other’s work.”
