In crafting our itineraries, we infuse abundant inspiration and playfulness, leading our participants to off-the-beaten-track and off-the-mat destinations throughout Greece. Here, amidst the land of philosophers, myths, magnificent monuments, natural wonders, and profound energy places, we create transformative experiences.

Our participants find themselves mesmerized by the rich tapestry of ancient history, local life, and the beauty of nature as they seamlessly blend in with local artists and inhabitants, immersing themselves in the stories of our cultural heritage.

Through meticulously crafted travel journeys, we offer experiences that not only rejuvenate the physical body but also elevate the spirit. These journeys serve as a pathway to rediscover the essence of human emotions, ultimately leading to the realization of happiness.

"Eudaimonia," the ancient Greek concept of happiness, transcends mere joyfulness. It entails achieving harmony between the physical and emotional states, gaining clarity to perceive one's ideal self, and embodying a life lived in synchronicity with one's inner spirit. This alignment enables individuals to not only experience happiness but also to strive towards becoming the best version of themselves.

In essence, our pursuit of happiness, or "arete," encompasses excellence in all aspects of life. It's about living authentically and meaningfully, where every action is a reflection of our inner values and aspirations.

Happiness Circle


To attain happiness, one must align with the various aspects of their inner spirit or soul, whether it manifests as a creator, a healer, or a communicator. By unifying with this intrinsic part of oneself and nurturing it, individuals can flourish and realize their full potential.

Through immersive experiences in breathtaking therapeutic and rejuvenating locations, participants are invited to awaken their senses and establish a deeper connection with themselves. Accommodations are curated to offer bespoke comfort and tranquility, while meals consist of creative Greek dishes mindfully prepared with seasonal and organic ingredients, nourishing both body and soul.

In this nurturing environment, individuals are encouraged to expand their conscious awareness and cultivate an intimate relationship with themselves, fostering personal growth and inner fulfillment.
