Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Lesvos, Greece. This green island in the eastern Aegean Sea is off-the-beaten-track of mass tourism. It has the feel of authentic Greek life. Covered with olive groves and vast pinewoods, legend has it that this is where music first came to man. Poetry, song, and dance still play an important role.

Lesvos is the third biggest island of Greece with many different landscapes; a micro cosmos of its own. Many traditional villages nestle in the mountains, one visit is not enough to see them all. Lesvos is simply amazing and has been a favorite destination for romantics, artists, and birdwatchers.

The island is blessed with healing hot springs, a big variety of birds and wildflowers, award winning beaches, a petrified forest, medieval castles, fine museums, and last but not least is famous for its unique cuisine with traditional dishes and local fish.
