Rejuvenation retreat in Crete


Yoga - Drum - Chant

4-10 September 2015

What are you doing with your wild and precious life?
The great Greek philosophers knew that life is best lived as play. So let us enjoy and celebrate. Join us on this exciting retreat on magical Crete!

The ancient arts of Yoga and Drumming connect us to our inner wisdom, the song of the heart, our common rhythm. Sfakia on Crete where we will stay is the perfect location: Greek hospitality and climate, close to the beach, a rugged landscape, magic radiance and a long history of female drummers from the antique to now! 
The retreat includes daily yoga, drumming, meditation, chanting, beach time, and special visits to local ancient sites.

Transform your rhythm. Transform your life!

Connecting back to the ancient lineage of women drummers, we will learn to play the frame drum, one of the worlds' oldest and most sacred instruments that was first seen played by women - in places such as Crete.

No previous experience is necessary, just bring an open mind. You will leave this transformational experience feeling radiant, creative and inspired.
Sfakia and the long beach
Cost of the retreat is SEK 7500.
The all-inclusive price includes shared accommodation (2 people per room) in a beautiful house near Sfakia and the beach, vegetarian meals, daily drumming and yoga, chanting and meditation. Single room supplements are available.

Flights and transport are not included. There are direct return flights for SEK 1500 with RyanAir from Skavsta to Chania/Crete on Fridays, which would mean spending another night in Chania after the retreat, which is really worth it as Chania is a beautiful old Venetian harbor town with nice restaurants, guesthouses, shops. Orherwise there are flights to Heraklion with different airlines, also a possibility.

Open to all Yoga and Drumming levels. If you do not a frame drum, you can purchase one at the workshop for a reasonable rate (SEK 300-400).
Daily schedule includes: morning meditation, extended yoga session, brunch, free time (with opportunities to explore the island, go to the beach), early evening drumming session, chanting, delicious homemade dinner and special evening programs.
