Retreat location

This retreat will take place in Kissamos, on the beautiful island of Crete, Greece. “Out in the dark blue sea, there lays a land called Crete, a rich and lovely land, washed by the waves on every side" says the famous Homer in “The Odyssey”. Crete is perhaps the most famous travel destination in Greece, especially among those who seek the traditional side of the Greek culture. Offering a unique and diverse landscape, a chance to come close to the local customs, native people with authentic hospitality, and the Cretan cuisine which is famous worldwide for its taste and health benefits, Crete is a "must explore" for the conscious travelers of today.

Although globalization, tourism, and economic growth have inevitably changed the way of life in Crete, especially in the large urban centers, to a modern and cosmopolitan style, the Cretans still preserve the bonds with their rich folk traditions and cultural heritage. The Cretan dances are still danced at every opportunity and the "madinades" and the "rizitika" songs resound in every celebration. In the countryside, many old Cretan men and women wear the traditional costume and the Cretan idiom is widely spoken even in the large cities.

There is an exceptional artistic production in traditional sectors such as pottery, embroidery, jewelry, etc., and of course the very special Cretan music. Arts and literature had always played a significant role in the life of the Cretan people. Famous painters like El Greco and Michael Damaskinos, writers like Nikos Kazantzakis, poets like Vincenzos Kornaros and Odysseas Elitis, and composers like Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hatzidakis, and Giannis Markopoulos are Cretans or of Cretan origin. Today, there are many important Cretans with significant contribution in all aspects of the cultural life in Greece.

Extra virgin olive oil, legumes, and vegetables still constitute the base of the local cuisine as they have done for thousands of years and make the Cretan cuisine renowned worldwide for its benefits on longevity and good health. The meeting and drop-off point for this retreat is Chania, Crete.
