A WEEK IN MYSTICAL KYTHNOS SANDWICHED BETWEEN TWO EVENINGS IN ANCIENT ATHENS.
Led by Jes Allen
Special offerings from Amanda Capobianco & Giovanna Macejka
I had the honor of experiencing Kythnos in September of 2018. I spent the week almost entirely alone, silent and disconnected from the electronic web. The experience was profound. The island rests in her true nature with occasional strong winds and primarily deep stillness. Her beauty is such that my days were structured around getting into the land at the rise and fall of the sun. She shifted my life forever. I entered Kythnos with a lot to release and left completely cleared. Totally reborn and filled with light.
On this retreat expect deep studies of The One Self through daily meditations, reflection & mind restructuring journal exercises, earth connection & the physical practice of asana. My most beloved soul sisters of the practice will be serving up their deepest heart offerings as well.
The center consists of four beautiful villas. There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms per villa as well as a full kitchen, living room and patio. The space overlooks the sea herself. There is a private beach a short walk away and in the evenings you can see every star in the sky and only hear the sweet sounds of the waves on the shore.
Everyone will arrive anytime on August 24th in Athens. We will have a hotel there overnight and leave on a ferry for the island of Kythnos the morning of the 25th. We will return to Athens on September 1st and will have another night there. You can book a flight out anytime on September 2nd. If you are wanting to extend your trip, I have been to several islands and am happy to talk about ways to do that just let me know!
