The Community Experience
This year more than ever it’s important to unlock ourselves from isolation, fear and stress.
So, let’s experience connection, empathy and have fun!
We will escape to a serene location, unplug from chaos, busy work schedule and live with a small group of people in search of being part of a community, learn and have a good time together.
We invite you all to a beautiful country house at the seaside, close to Athens in Greece.
In our ‘beehive’ in Chalkoutsi, we will have the opportunity to meet new people, to share, have inspiring conversations and to experience how the self can be nurtured, supported and flourish, when we connect deeply and co-create beautiful moments. We will appreciate how many things we have in common, we will take care of ourselves and our community.
Our goal is to be transformed into human bees and produce the community’s ‘Honey’.
Our sessions create the opportunity to bond, to play, to self explore mindfully, to learn communication tools and practical ways to manage our emotional, mental and physical wellness. We will be part of a community where culture of care, creativity, empathy and collaborative thriving is manifested through practice and experience.
Heart, Mind and Body in tune within a beautiful natural flow, create an authentic and unique life experience, that leads us from the ‘I’ to the ‘We’ and accompanies us in our later life.
We will leave feeling inspired, refreshed, connected and empowered to take on whatever comes next!
