See and feel Greece like a true local while experiencing your unique metamorphosis.
NOVEMBER 14-21, 2023 SPARTA, GREECE
Discover the transformative power of the olive harvest. Soak up the energy of the land, while connecting with yourself in ways you never imagined.
A SPACE FOR NATURE ENTHUSIASTS,
ADVENTUROUS SOULS, AND CULTURE LOVERS
Just as the olive trees work together to bear fruit, the olive harvest, a centuries-old tradition, teaches the value of cooperation and collaboration.
This is the ideal opportunity to escape the mental clutter and rediscover the harmony of body and mind.
Nature acts as a wise and gentle guide, providing lessons in communication and connection. You will learn to get in touch more deeply with yourself and others, fostering a sense of community and empathy.
The olive harvest rituals offer a lens to explore cultural dynamics and our place in society, encouraging personal growth and a profound appreciation for our interconnected world.
This transformative experience will leave you with lasting insights and skills to carry forward in your life.
FOUR EARLY BIRD SPOTS AVAILABLE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 15

WITH FEATURED GUEST TEACHER
I enjoyed the full experience. The one-on-ones, the workshops, the touring around, the yoga, everything. It all came together to help me move forward in this difficult point of my life.
Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone to find what makes you happy. Its when you allow the walls to come down, that you find yourself again.
