Embodied Essence
Women's Sailing Retreat in Greece
Oct 7-14, 2023

A Week of Transformation

 

Are you ready? 

To open to a version of yourself deeply connected to your inner truth?

 

To dive into the elements of Sea, Sun, Sand, and Wind as nature propels us?  

To understand and embody your true essence?

To join in a week of Sailing, Yoga, Breathwork, Movement, Nourishment for your senses, and Awakening of Self Love in the stunning setting of the ancient and picturesque islands of Greece?

 

 

Expansion requires a space of holding, where you can feel safe to explore the boundaries of comfort zones and limiting beliefs.

A space of sacred sisterhood.

Share. Connect. Explore.

SHARE

Share in Sisterhood. Experiences, Insights, Perspective- each of us on the retreat brings a unique sense of perception that will help open windows of insight and depth of understanding to each other, and ourselves.

CONNECT

Connect at the soul level. A deep connection to self unfolds when you take yourself out of your daily routine and offer the gift of space. Space for creativity &connection. 

EXPLORE

Explore your inner landscape as well as the beauty of ancient Greece. We embark on a 7-night journey immersed in the elements, with the wind as our guide.

Are you ready?

Shift outside the constructs of linear life and into the expanded flow of the elements.

 

This is a retreat for anyone identifying themselves as a woman.

 

Women supporting Women.

 

When women come together in community, a special sort of magic begins to unfold. The type of magic that reveals your inner truth. 

 

We are daughters, sisters, mothers, grandmothers.

We are held in a supportive space of vulnerability and freedom. We can learn from each other’s experiences and gain new perspectives in our lives.

We are Maiden, Mother, Enchantress, and Sage.

 

We are open to exploring our sensual selves and harnessing the power of movement and self-pleasure.

Together, we will practice, explore,  release, and offer an opportunity to expand into your next phase of understanding your embodied essence. 

 

There will be much space for personal reflection & contemplation as well as alone time, as needed. Likewise, an opportunity for the community to let the magic unfold.

Over the course of a week together we will explore your relationship with....

Why a Sailing Retreat?

When you are out on the water, it is that much easier to connect with the elements. The elements which have an innate connection to the collective intelligence of the universe.  

 

When sailing, you must surrender the guidance of the wind and the sea. Embrace the fluidity and uncertainty of the week and trust that we will be guided to exactly the right place at the right time.

 

Sailing offers an opportunity to expand our comfort zones, and a Catamaran offers the space and luxury to do this in a gentle way.

 

Why Greece?

The islands of Greece hold a special sort of energy. The kind that holds cumulative knowledge from centuries past. Each and every time I set foot in Greece I receive potent insights that lead to a profound self-discovery. I truly believe that there is an energy here that we are invited to tap into… the energy of Eros that can be invoked from within.

 

Weather Conditions

The daily itinerary is weather-dependent and subject to group dynamics. In the rare case of very strong winds (>26 knots) we might modify our itinerary. In the scenario of strong winds, the itinerary may be alternated. Whatever the case we guarantee that alternative plans will meet the requirements and quality of services as promised.
