Join us for a 5-day retreat on the beautiful island of Kos, the birthplace of Hippocrates! In collaboration with the Hippocrates Garden Cultural Center, this retreat focuses on ancient practices of health, blending Greek philosophy and herbal medicine to support your wellness education. The retreat is designed for all ages and interests, including as a family vacation, corporate retreat, educational tour, and wellness getaway.
Founded in 2008, the Hippocrates Garden Cultural Center, where all retreat activities will take place, is a member of UNESCO Piraeus and Islands. The center consists of an exact replica of an ancient Greek village, with a traditional house, an herb garden, a philosopher’s arcade, a dreaming medicine room, an altar, a vineyard, and a decorative stone-floor theater. This is a special place to spark your imagination and feel connected with ancient Greek history!
