LIFE GreekTreat™ Athens 2017
Wednesday 27th September – Sunday 1st October
This liberating trip to the magnificent City of Athens promises 5 days of exploration, deep conversation, illuminating self-reflection, releasing and inspiring re-visioning of your life.
With a combination of daily workshops, group discussions, personal ‘time out’ and one to one work, this refreshing retreat is focussed on exploring the BIG questions that you feel you should be asking yourself and how to connect to the ‘real’ answers within. Over the course of the GREEKTREAT you will really get to know your ‘self’ more, observe what drives you and what is truly behind the choices that you are currently making for yourself. Experience the deep power that comes with being authentically connected to yourself, your choices, the people around you and the world you live in. By the end of the 5-DAY GREEKTREAT EXPERIENCE you will leave feeling calmer, more rested, clearer and fully connected to what it truly means to create and live an inspired life!

“I’ve just spent a wonderful week in Greece with friends from my Greek class and accompanied by Chrisoula, who organised the whole thing. We flew to Athens, and then took the local bus to Nafplion where we spent 3 days. Nafplion is one of the best places I’ve ever been to in Greece, with narrow winding streets, Venetian houses, a beautiful square and three amazing fortresses. The accommodation was perfect, a quaint three-storey house in a quiet back street, but within walking distance of all the local attractions and restaurants. From there we travelled back to Athens, and then spent 4 nights in Glyfada on the Athenian Riviera, this time in a large modern hotel. One of the reasons for the visit was to practice our Greek, which was great fun. Chrisoula took us to lots of tavernas and bars, where she encouraged the staff to speak to us only in Greek; we used public transport all the time we were in Athens, and had some lovely conversations with local people. Athens was terrific – we did all the usual touristy things, wallowing in culture and enjoying the sunshine, but the whole experience was enhanced by being able to tap into Chrisoula’s knowledge and experience of the city. A truly memorable holiday.”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
