This retreat is dedicated to the exploration of authenticity, vulnerability, intimacy, and the journey of embodied spirituality. Willing to become deeply intimate with your lived, embodied experience is a ‘shortcut’! This is a gathering together for eight days of self-growth workshops, open-hearted talks, dialogues, silent and guided sitting, standing and walking meditations, yoga practice, pranayama, yoga Nidra, hiking, swimming in the most beautiful beaches of Greece. In a supportive, non-judgmental, accepting, healing field of safety and goodness, you will explore more insightful and intuitive states of yourselves.
The retreat will take place in beautiful, elegant stoned villas located at a walking distance of Milopotamos beach. They are tastefully decorated with a wide range of facilities. Free Wi-Fi is available in all areas. They are fully equipped with kitchen, garden, sea view rooms, swimming pool, environmentally friendly.
In the intimacy of your awareness, in the acceptance of every single experience, in the light of your connection with your true self, accept and embrace yourself. Live your own unique, authentic heart journey by:
Self-acceptance: changing from the person you thought you were (conditioning) into the person you really are!
Self-acceptance: changing from another, “better” person that you’re not yet ( self-denial) into the person you really are. Your role-playing and denying your true self is confining! Playing roles that are incompatible with your essence, imitating individuals or characters that think, feel, vibrate differently, and have a different purpose than yours in this life is in contrast with accepting and acknowledging your own essence, your true self. By accepting your true self you honour your experiences, your karma, your divinity; you become aware of your uniqueness!
Accepting the reality, even in the midst of pain is a challenge:
Breathe deeply! Observe the inhalation and exhalation process, stay silent, feel your body, connect with the energy that surrounds you, hold your deepest longings, your deepest dreams, and your challenges in the loving arms of the eternal now!
In this retreat, transformative spiritual practices as well as nature adventures, meaningful inner and outer explorations will be introduced. Your activities will include meditation, pranayama, body and heart opening Auroyoga classes, self-discovery, self-acceptance and self- healing workshops, delicious vegetarian, vegan, and raw vegan meals, hiking, swimming and snorkelling and peaceful time in close contact with the nature and the ocean in the magnificent Pelion. This unique retreat combines yoga and meditation practice with guided cultural tours, enlightening workshops and hikes in an unforgettable scenery. The goal is to strengthen not only your body but your soul as well. To find serenity, to celebrate real life with joy and to connect with yourself on a deep level.
