About this trip

Rejuvenate in the Mediterranean. The Female Rainbow Retreat: Embody Your Femininity is dedicated to our powerful, beautiful and wise female souls. An Embodied Spiritual Experience Embracing A Multifaceted You. (watch Video)


Join a group of 16 women to explore together, recover and celebrate the spectrum of our female identity.  Women embody traits that are colorful, multifaceted, strong and vulnerable, just like the rainbow qualities that we can find in the archetypes of the Greek Goddesses.

  

The archetypes are powerful inner patterns, forces within that influence what we do and how we feel. When we are able to understand them, we gain powerful insights that provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness.

 

You can gift yourself a relaxing, rejuvenating experience or you are welcome to come with a friend or significant other who may not participate at the workshops. They will be charged only the accommodation fee. 


What we do:

REGROUND 

  

Every morning we start our day with a sunrise meditation and a yin yoga practice to reground in our essence. We let the sounds of the Mediterranean sea expand our awareness to connect with our inner center.


REVEAL


Every day we have two 3h workshops, each one dedicated to one of the Greek Goddesses.
We read and reflect upon their myth to get familiar and be inspired by their symbols and images. The Greek Goddess archetypes are powerful inner patterns, forces within that influence what we do and how we feel. When we are able to understand them, we gain powerful insights that provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness.


AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT & HEALING ARTS


Playing with a variety of art materials that include drawing, creating with collage and clay, you deepen your connection to their multifaceted qualities. We use embodied explorations and Authentic Movement, creating a safe, non-judgemental space where you are free to move and listen to your body’s wisdom. This way you open yourself to receive the insights and understandings that each archetype reveals for your healing and growth.


EMERGE & CELEBRATE


Our last day is dedicated to revisiting and integrating all moments of our journey together. There is time to enter the creative flow and become the artists and directors of your lived experience. You will be delighted by the wisdom, beauty and creativity that is hidden in your soul, ready to guide your life in more plenty and wholehearted ways. Our sacred circle is the loving holding space that welcomes each one of the women to emerge and share their unique essence. All together we celebrate our colorful, multifaceted female rainbow.

Accomodation

Paros is a mix of traditional Cycladic architecture, vivid nightlife, magical beaches, enchanting rural villages, and historical monuments. 


The Okreblue Seaside Yoga Retreat Center in Paros, was created with love and care, for like-minded people to gather, practice and share yoga and other spiritual and self-exploratory practices. 


Coming to Okreblue you really get the essence of arriving to someone’s home. I personally visited Okreblue last summer to make sure you feel the warmth of true authentic Greek hospitality.

Delicious organic, home made food

What makes Okreblue more special, is the organic home grown vegetables that are used for the delicious meals at Caretta restaurant-lounge (Okreblue’s restaurant)


The organic breakfast and lunch are included in your stay. 


After the workshops there is plenty of free time to enjoy the beach, get to know the island of Paros or relax by receiving a massage. Dinner time is open for you to choose between staying at Okreblue or visiting a close by village for more traditional plates.


As Greek myself, I can't brag enough for how tasty greek flavors are and you definitely need to try yourself at least once in your life.


One Day Excursion

During the retreat we have a one day excursion to visit the islands of Delos and Mykonos.


Delos was one of the most sacred places of ancient Greece. The archeological site on the island is the remains of a sanctuary to the gods Apollo and Artemis. The on-site museum has one of the finest collections of ancient Greek sculpture. As the birthplace of Artemis and Apollo, Delos is the ideal place to have an embodied feeling of the Greek Archetypes' power.


Famous for its minimal Cycladic architecture, Mykonos is full of traditional whitewashed houses and blue domed churches. There you will have the opportunity to have lunch and treat yourself to some local Aegean specialties!

A message from the host


"I am a highly sensitive and passionate woman who loves chocolate, dancing, the sunsets and swimming in the rejuvenating Mediterranean Sea. With the Authentic Movement SF activities, my mission is to provide a safe space for you to explore your unique creative voice, to heal your relationship to your inner child, your femininity and your body, as well as to reinvent ways to relate to each other with more love, respect, and authenticity.


In the Female Rainbow Retreat I am sharing with you the knowledge, tools, experiences that helped my journey of transformation of honoring the diverse aspects of my femininity. Together we create the healing space to facilitate your own transformation.

The secret is strengthening the connection to your body, to your essence and to your Self as a woman, so that you manifest a life full of well-being, gratitude and love.


Our spiritual guides are the inner archetypes of the Greek Goddesses that can reveal intimate truths about ourselves.


By expanding your awareness through Authentic Movement, Yoga, expressive art activities, and connecting with nature, you deepen your trust in your heart and in life. As a result, you become more open to receive all the richness that life has to offer you.


Participating will help you: 

• embrace all aspects of your female identity

• heal your relationship with your femininity and your body

• and deepen the love for yourself as the multifaceted woman that you are. 


I look forward to have this transformational experience with you! "
