Phlea Farm

The studios are two minutes from the sea, at Phlea Farm, Yanni’s propriety. In the middle of a grove of tangerine and orange trees, the guests can relax to the sounds of nature and enjoy the breezes. There are around 500 trees, oranges, tangerines, lemons, guavas, olives, most of which are over 100 years old.

The studios are located near an ancient well and a pond with Kois and goldfishes, offering a feeling of exotic daydreaming! Totally new studios, you will literally inaugurate them! Between minimalism, traditional and modern, the atmosphere is Zen and unique! Fully equipped and furnished with anything you may need.

Archontiko Angelou vegan hotel

Located also in Alinda, five minutes from the sea and five minutes from Phlea Farm, hidden in a garden of 5,500 square meters with over 100-year-old trees, flowers, a wine yard, olive trees, an orchard, vegetables, and herbs. Each space has its particular beauty and every room is different (rooms are cleaned and linen every five days).

Archontiko Angelou is a converted stone mansion of 1895. Initially, it was the family’s summer villa. When this listed building was converted and innovated, respecting and uplifting the old noble style and atmosphere, it became one of the ‘‘bijoux’’ of Leros.

Marianna Angelou is always glad to host retreats and take care of everything! Optionally (upon request) you can enjoy homemade vegan, vegetarian, raw, organic breakfast, and/or dinner. Most of the products are from her garden (orange, tangerine, guava, lemon curd, plum, apricot, fig, and prickly pear).

Program

“ΤAO, is the law of nature behind all of creation, those who harmonize with it will be at peace with existence.” This retreat is an invitation to all who (regardless of experience) feel the need to re-connect, deeply rest, detox, reset, vitalize, and re-source the self through a holistic approach to life.

The ancient traditions, yoga, Taoism, Buddhism, Chinese medicine, offer you an incredibly wide range of techniques to work with and rise to your full potential. You will explore meditation, pranayama, asana, Kriya, Kundalini yoga, Yin yoga, and Qi Gong.

The Fire element in yoga

According to ancient traditions (Ayurveda, Buddhism, Taoism), nature’s cycles are associated with the Five Elements. Summer is the season of Fire, action, and expansion. Just as nature enters now into this cycle, so does the energy within you. The Fire element is associated with upward movement towards the sun, and the associated organs are the heart and the small intestine.

When summer arrives, you restore, regulate, stimulate prana, by working on the associated meridian pair, in order to remove congested energy, allowing the flow through the channels. Summer season bathes you in the physical and spiritual warmth of Fire. Life reaches the peak of activity, reproduction, regeneration, and relationships.

The energy of Fire brings the spirit of love, most strongly into play within you, since the associated organ is the heart. Joy is the emotional aspect of the Fire element. Joy comes into being through the capacity to love and connect. In Chinese medicine, the joy associated with Fire is not the momentary thrill of excitement.

It’s the deep and profound joy of harmony and unity. In the physical body, rhythm is kept by the heart and circulation. The Fire element governs the acupuncture meridians and organs connected to these physical functions. The heart is regarded as the emperor of the body, the seat of the emotions.

It governs all of the emotions, but its native emotion is joy. Joy heals the heart. The Fire element restores connection, not only to the human world but also to the natural world that encompasses you as human beings. Connection to others and connection to nature are part of the same whole.

Modern Western thinking, rooted in mind-body dualism, splits you off from instinct and nature. You see yourselves as separate from the whole web of life. You lose connection with the natural world and, by extension, your true nature. The key here is that connection with nature shifts your focus to the present moment, It takes you away from yourself and gives you relief from your mental state.

By building healthy relationships (which requires both courage and the ability to discern healthy relationships from toxic ones) you restore the capacity to express care and love, and that is what nourishes the Fire element, that is what brings joy in life.

Retreat location

The magical Leros Island is hosting their vision for the fourth year, offering you a blissful environment, the perfect ground for retreats. The powerful energy of the island, the rare clarity of its light, the wealth of this blessed land, the uncontaminated nature and so much more, supports and expands the inner work, awakening the ability to surrender to whatever is meant to rise during any process, while allows deep rest and fulfillment.

It is the ideal destination for those who need authenticity, peace, natural beauty, calming energy, and an easy-going mentality. It feels immediately ''home’’. It comes naturally to tune into the energetic flow, totally and completely, in an effortless and familiar way, by merging into the healing waters, walking through wild paths, enjoying the sunset from the top of a mountain, snorkeling at secret corners, trekking, and enjoying large biodiversity while discovering wild herbs and new fragrances of flowers, having memorable views or just by being in the bay to eavesdrop the wonders of existence!
