Week I: Getting to Know You, Getting Free
Would you like to be free of those sticky patterns and fears that keep showing up again and again in your life, in relationships? Want to be free to meet challenges and welcome love into your life? Get to understand exactly what holds you back from full expression?
All of us carry patterns of behaviour laid down in early life, and developed in response to life's circumstances.
Using Family Constellations, The Work of Byron Katie®, Voice Dialogue®, and Creativity, we’ll discover the Archetypes and Parts that animate our inner world in multiple areas of our lives, sometimes holding us back or taking us down unexpected and scary pathways.
We’ll experience directly how these Archetypes and Parts influence our relationships to Self, Body, Other, our World. Many of the Voices may be those of our Ancestors, echoing down the generations, so we’ll be looking at patterns, traumas, and credos, that we have inherited, some direct and conscious, and others previously unseen, and welcome their energies and vibration as essential to our Being.
Joy and Grief, tears and laughter, may appear spontaneously as we become freely and fully expressive of our natural Innocent Grace, and our relations with others become far more Authentic, Charismatic and Loving. You'll feel the support of the community, and of timeless beauty of the land.
Archetypes likely to show up in the course of the week:
Innocent, Orphan, Warrior, Altruist, Magician, Seeker, Sage … and maybe more
Weekend for optional deeper work, excursions, exploring, exchanges, excitement, experience true community, fall in love with Greece.

Week II Mastery & Magic in Self & the World
As we move through the first week and into the next, we’ll explore how we might express more Creativity and Natural Leadership.
Time for the Archetypes of Seeker, Destroyer, Lover, Creator, coming fully into our empowered, flexible, kind and creative selves with Ruler, Magician, Sage, and Fool (the Divine Innocent).
The roles will fluctuate to and fro as well as the Archetypes find their voices.
We’ll use Movement, Writing, Drawing and other Art forms, conjunct with Inquiry and Dialogue, to enhance, deepen, and ground our experience, so that we may take home within us the restored energy where it may enrich every aspect of our lives, whether in intimacy, in family, at work, on public transport, solo, and particularly in responding to our political, climatic, and financial situations.
The first week (a full five days plus a weekend) may be taken as an amazing journey on its own; however, to benefit more fully from the work you’ll likely find it more rewarding and beneficial to come for both.
You’ll have plenty of opportunity to visit several sacred and dramatic sites and historic hill or fishing villages, hang around in hammocks, walk the cool forested slopes of Mount Pelion, frolic or laze in the crystal Aegean, marvel at the ancient massive trees, eat the wonderful food, try the local tipple, buy local herbs, honey, and preserves, and enjoy the kindness and generosity of the local Greek people.
We’ll be working singly, in pairs, and in the group, creating an atmosphere of support, intimacy, and deep spaciousness.
Morning Yoga, Meditation, Dance or Tai-Chi. Afternoons for beach, excursions, rest, written work and practice.
Throughout your time here, our magnificent Mother Earth in glorious manifestation will support, shelter, challenge, nourish, and appeal to you.
