Mindfulness in Santorini - May 2017Rest your mind from its constant mental chatter from your own private, beach-front apartment in beautiful Santorini
Immerse yourself in our Mindfulness retreat designed to soothe your soul
Why join us in Santorini?
What will you explore and nurture whilst on retreat?
Mindfulness lies within. To feel it, you must experience it. Mindfulness is a mind-body experience. It is a state of being that allows your mind to go quiet; only then can you truly start to rest your mind from the constant mental chatter, allowing you to enjoy living with greater ease. Mindfulness, coupled with accessing your creativity, can truly widen your life experiences. Our mindfulness practices, dedicated to de-cluttering your mind and soul, take place at a variety of locations across the beautiful, peaceful setting of Santorini.
Reducing the mind’s clutter makes space for fresh approaches to your wellbeing, helping you to change the way you think about your daily experiences. Research shows mindfulness can be extremely effective in reducing both stress and anxiety. Your session workshops will be fluid in format, allowing for the natural and responsive changes that enable you to truly go with the ‘flow’. You will be carefully guided, and fully supported, during all of our mindfulness sessions, helping you to continue to develop your inner peace.
Whilst achieving true mindfulness is the purpose of our retreat, many find an increased self-awareness through the re-focus of their physical being. Yoga classes can be an additional support to the activities on your retreat. These unification of mind and body classes are entirely optional, and organised in addition to your scheduled activities.
Quite simply, this is sheer bliss...Utterly essential for those looking for a short and yet, beautiful, break away from their every day
An island of exceptional beauty, culture and tranquillity, Santorini is the perfect place to feel at peace – experiencing true mindfulness away from the mental chatter of your busy life. Whilst on the retreat, you may choose to simply be still: to mediate and relax, in a tranquil haven of self-discovery. However, should you decide to explore the breath-taking island, there is much to see in Santorini. Visit the world-renowned, spectacular white-washed cubist houses of Fira and Oia, situated only a few minutes from your luxurious apartment. These incredible feats of architecture and imagination will inspire in you peace, awed by their ability to cling to the cliffs above an underwater caldera. As part of your personalised retreat, we can help you time your visit to the cliffs to ensure that you capture the setting of the sun. Enjoy the sensational view over the crystal-clear Aegean Sea as you watch one of the world’s most magnificent, and most photographed, sunsets over the caldera. If you enjoy a spot of shopping, you will delight in the array of opportunities on the island. Santorini is home to many exquisite jewellers, providing stunning polished pieces of lava discovered on the island on which you are staying. However, beyond the shops, there is more to behold. During your time on the retreat, if you wish, you will have the opportunity to explore many different areas of the island. You may choose to visit the ancient ruins of Akrotiri, explore the beautiful red and black beaches, taste the wonderful cuisine, enjoy guilt-free wine, and mingle amongst the friendly local people. Journeys with us around this superb and mystical island will take place in air-conditioned luxury. Our tour vehicle is specifically designed so you can relax whilst you cruise this volcanic paradise, taking in the magnificent scenery and ancient offerings that stunning Santorini has to offer.
