Winter Solstice

Apostolia Papadamaki - Winter Solstice - The Happiness Retreat
Celebrating the seasonal transition
2 days - 1 night

Dear soulful friends,

Join me in a joyful one-day and one-night gathering in the Corinthian mountain slopes, to celebrate the Winter Solstice with mindful practices, creating a powerful time of transformation, just before Christmas and the New Year.

During this amazing seasonal transition we will create space for clarity of mind, increase mental awareness and open the heart, a magnificent opportunity to nourish our selves and set new intentions for the coming year!

Our practices include Yoga, Dance, Song, Meditation, Drum Journey and Sharing Circle so we can release anything that doesn't serve us anymore, say good buy to 2019 with a clear heart and welcome 2020 with new intentions and blessings.

We will detox our physical body enjoying delicious homemade Vegetarian food, prepared by the chef of Noosfera with organic ingredients from the garden.

Nature will be our greatest ally so we can remember how to love and nourish the most important person in our lives: Our self. Putting our feet on the earth, dancing in the sunset, absorbing the energy of the sunrise, can awaken in each one of us what we already know: To be present, to be grateful, to be humble, to be loving, to be complete, to be free. Together we will create a foundation of freedom, love, and peace within ourselves!
