APRIL 28 - MAY 5, 2023

This is not a retreat: it is an odyssey.

A journey to connect with the first blooms of spring on the cornucopia island of Crete. Listening to the hum of the bees. Hiking ancient footpaths to ancient healing temples. Bathing in the sea where rituals once took place. Learning about medicinal plants that have been used since the first civilizations. Enjoying food prepared with liquid gold (olive oil). Meeting and learning from locals sharing their craft. Relaxing and slowing down to the pace of nature comes easily here.


Metanoia is a change or shift in your spirituality - turning into the light, this place will lead you there.
