Water Remembers

Corfu island, September 8+9, 2023
Water healing with Apostolia Papadamaki at Colibri Spirit Festival
Water Healing & Rebirthing Immersion
3 days - 2 nights

We invite you to a unique two-day water healing immersion, on the mermaid-shaped Island of Kerkyra, Greece, to deepen your connection with the water, release any trauma you may still carry, and rebirth anew into your full potential. 

WATER REMEMBERS is a form of aquatic bodywork that will enable you to embody a sense of true belonging and develop trust in the fluid oneness of the water element. We all come from the womb of our mother, immersed in amniotic fluid. Water is conductive so it can help us remember our true nature, and it can facilitate a natural re-birthing experience.

While floating, the absence of gravity combined with conscious breathing and witnessed by our full presence brings us into a dream-like state, a deep meditative zone. We can release stored emotions and patterns, heal trauma and «dance» in union with “Thalassa” our mother sea. The workshop is open to all, no previous experience is needed.
