The Happiness Retreat - Spirit of Love
Embodied Spirituality Retreat in Nature for Men and Women
3 days - 2 nights

Info in Greek - Πληροφορίες στα Ελληνικά

 

I invite you to join us in a profound celebration of Life, in a unique Eco - cultural sanctuary, amidst unspoiled nature and enter the space of true freedom, abundant bliss, and deep connection with mother Earth.

Most spiritual awakening experiences happen when we attune to the life force of Mother Earth as she sings for us through the mountains, the rivers, the forest, and the plants helping us to remember and expand our consciousness.

Through a unique blend of movement, breath, rhythm, pulse, sentient motion, sound, and voice practices, you will experience unconditional love, you will unleash your creative spirit and you will nourish your body with organic homemade meals, surrounded by the wealth of a loving community and the prosperity of the blooming nature around us.

If this call excites your spirit, join our "Spirit of Love" Retreat and plant the seeds of joy and passion in your soul!

Meet your teacher / Apostolia Papadamaki

Apostolia Papadamaki, founder of the Happiness Retreat

 

I am Apostolia Papadamaki, an internationally acclaimed choreographer, a transformational retreat leader, and an embodied spirituality master teacher.

I studied Contemporary Dance, Contact Improvisation, Yoga, and Alexander Technique in New York. As a lover of healing arts, and spirituality, I am trained in Shamanism, Meditation, Breathwork, Music, Voice, Diving, Craniosacral Therapy, and Rei-Ki collaborating with inspiring artists, healers, and teachers in many lands. I love to dream and I believe in infinite possibilities.

My highest intention is to keep opening the eyes of the soul and tuning into the frequency of Love no matter how life challenges me. The Happiness Retreat is an open-hearted invitation to share knowledge, experience, and joy with beautiful souls like you!

The Happiness Sharing Circle

 

 

Our Embodied Spirituality practices include

Yoga with Voice

Loving the breath

Movement of the Senses - Freeing the body

Authentic Movement and Voice Improvisation

Sharing Circle  - How we embody creativity as a tribe 

We ground ourselves, shaking and pulsing, releasing the tension, increasing blood circulation, and connecting with the cosmic energy of the Earth. Our breath expands into sound and our voice can be liberated. We enter a state of profound soul connection establishing a deep level of freedom - we reach our euphoric state of being.

We will sit in a circle as a tribe, holding a safe and sacred space for one another. We will learn how to speak words of gratitude, share our intentions for new beginnings and set the foundation for our soul to give us what we need at the present moment in time.

 

Movement, breath, rhythm, pulse, sentient motion, sound, and voice practices will create a heartfelt space where the mind forms and borders are not leaders anymore, where freedom of expression is unconditional.

We will guide you on how to be happy to be seen, to be heard, and to be free to express yourself through voice and movement, harmonizing body, mind, and soul so you can embody your true loving nature.

Our circle will support you to be ridiculously creative, to express yourself in ways you can never imagine, to find the courage to “fail” and create again and again and again until you are happy and free because you will feel this amazing trust in the beautiful unknown you!
