Women need to be so many different roles, to so many different people. Women are bosses and colleagues, mothers and managers, daughters and friends, wives and partners, earth guardians and gaia-grid keepers. Who are you to yourself? Are you your own critical parent, worst enemy, shadow queen, or do are you embodying the self-talk of a nurturing parent, best friend, and luminous goddess? The goddess of love, Aphrodite, is calling women far and wide to come home to their inner truth.

She is stirring up deeper truths within you, which is leading us to ask the real questions about our relationships and our work in this world. This inner questioning catalyzes exploring new possibilities and illuminating creative solutions. This is a time to intimately connect with your heart, clearly listening to what inspires you, what ignites your passions, what gives you pleasure, and clearing the blocks which hinder your purpose.

In your daily routine, in the busyness of business, you can get stuck in the “masculine” doing energy, and find little time to dedicate to your feminine fluid practice. Without this balance you feel exhausted, disconnected, irritable, and experience creative block. Gift yourself the time out of daily routine, a space outside of the busy humdrum masculine business world. The pathways to conscious love starts within.

Aphrodite invites you to explore these pathways, emerging awakened. Envision one whole week of connecting with the “you” that is you, diving into the sacredly feminine field of consciousness. Access the depths of creative flow, luminous clarity, and sensuous self, activate intuitive knowledge, holding a prayer for the earth, and her people, all in the midst of the sacred birth place of Aphrodite.

A soul-vacation which will leave you reconnected with your true self, ignited passions, clarified purpose, recharged and ready to return to your world embodying your unique Aphrodite archetype. An opportunity to integrate the sacred wisdom of love, beauty, ancient knowledge and feminine power into every moment forward.

Eleftheria kakambouras

Eleftheria kakambouras is passionate about awakening, activating, and anchoring the sacred feminine within. Over the past decade, she has lead women's' soul-journey retreats and empowering workshops, in both, South Africa and Europe, feeling enriched by every woman's story and touched by each heart connection.

After completing a degree in clinical psychology, she followed her heart in the direction of metaphysical therapies and was deeply inspired by the body of work of great therapists such as Louise L. Hay and Virginia Satir.

She then completed her accreditation as a “You Can Heal Your Life” facilitator in 2002. Dedicated to her craft as self-mastery facilitator, she passionately continues learning and expanding her knowledge in the field of psychology, mysticism, priestess traditions, mythology, embodied art, and metaphysics.

Eleftheria is a third generation intuitive, and has been in contact with angelic beings and spirit guides on the “other side” for as long as she can remember. Fusing her innate gifts to lift the veil and move into other dimensions with the foundation of psychology, metaphysical methodology, and life times of experiences, Eleftheria effortlessly spun her magical web in order to integrate these modalities into an empowering path to sacred union.

As a wisdom keeper and illuminator of reality, she’s also expanded this vision to the corporate environment in the form of stress-management, intuitive leadership, personal development skills, and embedded practical spirituality into countless people’s lives.

As a love-light oracle, her work is received well in both worlds, both corporate and in the mystical realms of the sacred circle of women. Bridging both worlds, muggle and magical, through practical spirituality, she offers insight and sustainable shifts within the respectful bounds of personal belief structures.

But above all, it’s her work as a catalyst for awakening, activating, and anchoring the powers within; this Rainmaker has been leaving her mark across the landscapes of both Southern Africa and Europe. Her meditation album “sacred feminine alchemy” proved to be a turning point to deepen her work and take things to the next level.

This has resulted in the launch of her first online course. Currently, between birthing her first book “Trial by fire: the gift in the wound of betrayal”, you can find her creating global change with her global retreats, developing a local retreat center in Cape Town, and her work with the Global White Lion Protection Trust.

This retreat will take place at the Zening Resort in Polis Chrysochous, Cyprus. Cyprus is the largest island in the eastern Mediterranean. This mystical, beautiful island has long been a crossing point between Europe, Asia, and Africa, and still has many traces of successive civilizations like Roman theaters and villas, Byzantine churches and monasteries, and crusader castles and pre­historic habitats.

It is clear to see why this is the island which holds the mythology of birthing the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and fertility; Aphrodite. Cyprus was the center of her worship, though worship of Aphrodite was widely spread throughout the Mediterranean region.

Local tradition claims that the birthplace of Aphrodite is an area near Paphos called Petra tou Romiou. This area is one of the most beautiful landscapes in all of Cyprus. The spirit of generosity and love is felt throughout Cyprus in the hospitality of her people, deliciously healthy food, rich culture, and magical sacred sites.

Zening Resort is an eco-resort and wellness spa, situated right across from the Latchi Marina, in the quaint village of Polis. The resort is adjacent to the ecological region of Akamas and Chrysochous Bay of Cyprus, only a few miles from the sacred baths of Aphrodite and nature trail.

Zening Resort is located right by the Latchi Marina. Once a tiny fishing harbour, Latchi has grown as a tourist destination. Yet, it retains its unique charm. It is situated on the north west of the island close to the Akamas peninsula. Latchi Harbour is a sleepy port of Cyprus, where the fishermen bring in the fresh catch of the morning.

Latchi has about a dozen taverns, restaurants and bars. Many tourist excursion boats leave from Latchi to Blue Lagoon. It is also the entry point to Akamas peninsula and its nature reserve, Polis is the closest town, situated just six kilometers away from the harbor and with two large supermarkets and various other shops and restaurants.

Polis is a small town at the north-west end of the island of Cyprus, at the center of Chrysochous Bay, and on the edge of the Akamas peninsula nature reserve. It is a quiet tourist resort with all facilities designed to make tourists’ stay a pleasant and comfortable one.

  • Review by Irena from Slovenia

    "I first meditated with Eleftheria at her workshop "awakening the sacred feminine, held in Slovenia", and I was amazed and surprised by the depth of the meditation achieved considering I had not done regular meditation before that. For me, meditating with Eleftheria was like a revelation, a discovery of an inner world I am really grateful to have been given a chance and opportunity to connect with. I still consider it a treasure, and not wanting to lose it, I decided to buy her album as soon as it was available to be able to continue meditating with her. I still do, and her guidance never ceases to surprise me. I know the tracks are the same but there must be some magic within because each time different words are spoken to me. I am just deeply grateful to resonate with her, with the sound of her voice, with her guidance. She has helped me connect with parts of me so far undiscovered, neglected or dormant, and meditating with her gives me peace, strength, and above all, makes me think and act from my heart. I am still in the process of learning how to keep this heart connection with myself alive and always present in my day-to-day life, but the feeling is really rewarding when I do achieve this, and that’s very empowering."

  • Review by Polona from Slovenia

    "When I first heard about the white lions I just said, I’m also going to this retreat in South Africa. It was a call; my soul knew it is time to move forward."

    "I loved the most the time with white lions where I felt such respect to these incredible animals. The journey taught me to be more grateful and humble for my past life experience, I’m more peaceful, without drama in my life. I can describe the journey as an unforgettable journey to myself with deep insights and resolved frustrations. I never had been so in touch with myself and had frank talks in good company, had contact with animals in their natural environment with an excellent itinerary, healthy food, and organization. I met exceptionally and warm people on the journey, gain wisdom, and found warm guidance from Eleftheria. I recommend it sincerely."

    "I liked the retreat programme because I had a feeling that our facilitator was truly present and we were flowing all the time. I think she gave us even more ideas on how to apply her teachings into our lives. The feeling was that she was listening to us and gave us exactly the knowledge that we came for."
