Over five days you will learn more about yourself in a profound yet playful way. Through the legend of The Odyssey, through group discussion, our core philosophy of the Five Elements and immersive experiences unique to Euphoria Retreat, you will shed light on any inhibiting emotions, dissolve them and revel in a new and joyful confidence. This is a fun and engaging process for seeing the passage of our life’s path. A retreat like no other.

Find and live your inner purpose through the lens of an epic story of Greek mythology. Like Odysseus does in The Odyssey, you too will reflect on your life decisions and where they are leading you. Join our expert retreat leaders to explore the narrative, along with the Five Elements philosophy and playful and meditative activities, to discover your Ithaca – in other words how to identify and reach your heart’s desires. Enjoy the journey!

Odysseus Journey is for you if you would like to share, smile, and explore with others, without thinking too much. You will assimilate and contemplate in an unusual way which incorporates metaphor, discussion and physical activities that use the facilities and philosophy of Euphoria Retreat.

YOUR MENTORS: Marina Efraimoglou and Mary Vandorou. These expert women have developed their own unique approach, offering suggestions, sharing their journeys, and respecting yours.

Group Forest Meditation and Energy Movement | 50 min
50 minutes

This guided forest meditation session with one of our teachers is designed specifically for you and your current needs. Through experience, you learn how to meditate and at the same time eliminate stress, release blocked energy and expand your creativity. You will learn specific breathing and other techniques that you can use at home. Qi Gong is closely related to Tai Chi, combines various postures with breathing techniques to strengthen and allow Qi (energy) to flow within the body. In Qigong there may be no movement, movements may be very gentle, or at times more vigorous. The deeper one practices the more they can understand the purpose of each movement and the very specific effect on body and mind. Even a small amount of regular practice can have the most profound effects.

We have developed this massage-style treatment from the Theory of the Five Elements of ancient Greek and traditional Chinese medicine, which separates nature into five categories each with distinctive characteristics which are also reflected in patterns of human health and behaviour. Different people associate more closely with different elements according to their physical and psychological patterns. We determine imbalances in your dominant element and use different bodywork techniques, rhythms and pressures to create harmony and flow on a physical and emotional level.

This deeply relaxing session combines various energy techniques to relieve stress and bring a profound state of calm. Your therapist starts by opening the energy channels on your feet, moves up your body and focuses particularly on your head. It is said that when confronted with continual stress, the hypothalamus (the “brain’s brain”) literally shrinks. Our techniques help restore this area of the brain, reducing fearful thinking around trust, joy and safety. It is also good for hormonal balance, jet lag and sleep.

The Odysseyian journey, as told by Marina and her great friend Mary, is a gripping tale entwined with mythical gods and very real philosophical messages that shed light on our very human nature. I suspect that Homer would be unsurprised to learn that we haven’t changed much. Combined with the eastern philosophy of the five elements (water, air, fire, earth and metal), each day unravels both a universal and very personal awakening. The goal is both to follow Odysseus’ tale and to find your own Ithaca, or homecoming. At the end of the retreat I was left with a more profound understanding of both my own journey and human nature at large. It’s light delivery made it both entertaining and accessible at a deep level previously unexplored on other retreats. Throw in a few spectacular ruins, a charming community and a landscape strewn with olive groves, along with a highly curated combination of healing spa treatments;  I defy anyone to leave without a twinge off pathos in their hearts.
