Embody your Inner Love, Beauty, Joy & Wisdom

Discover your authentic self with the 7 Greek Goddess Archetypes

Are there times you feel confined, self-loathing, or soul-sick?

Do Social Media, societal expectations, and life, in general, get you feel uninspired, confused, or numb?

Would you like to worry less about your looks and whether you are good enough to enjoy more of life?

Do you often feel the need to reconnect with your body, your intuition and unravel your authentic self?

Are you tired of listening that you’re either a vixen, a career woman, or a devoted homemaker?

When you know you could be all these and more…

Are you on a journey to (re)discover yourself, and need to do this in a free and supporting environment?

If you caught yourself nodding when reading the above, you’re into a soul-searching phase in your life, longing to increase your self-awareness and acceptance.

As a woman, you can feel incredibly disempowered by a lot of societal pressure. Often, we have been conditioned to feel unworthy at some point. Modern life has estranged us from ourselves, making us constantly doubt and judge ourselves or have one aspect of our personality dominating. In order to love ourselves, we need to feel compassion for all aspects of ourselves. Compassion comes after acceptance, and acceptance only comes after self-awareness.

Have you ever thought that your character, behavior, and needs may be  be influenced by powerful inner forces,

called archetypes? Have you ever wondered why some women are more independent than others?

Or why do the same independent women, at some point in their lives, become very nurturing and giving?

What is the Feminine Wholeness Retreat?

This - one of its kind - retreat  is an intimate 6-day gathering for 16 women, who are interested to invest their precious time reconnecting with their authentic selves, through daily embodied workshops with the Greek Goddess Archetypes . Each workshop is dedicated to the archetype of a Greek goddess and you learn how women are connected to their multifaceted essence.

The 7 Greek Goddesses represent all aspects of the female psyche, both the light and the shadow, and you can easily draw on experiences in your own life that mirror their qualities and stories. The Greek Goddesses relate to different aspects of ourselves and different archetypes might come to light at different stages of a woman's life.

The Archetypes of the Greek goddesses are helpful as spiritual guides to defining ourselves, our paths, and our place within our communities. Ultimately, they can reveal intimate truths about ourselves, key to self-knowledge and wholeness.


In the retreat, you further expand your awareness with the embodied practices of Authentic Movement and Yoga, through expressive art activities and connecting with nature. Together we create a healing space to facilitate your own transformation. The secret is to strengthen the connection to your body, to your essence, and to yourself as a woman, so that you manifest a life full of well-being, gratitude, and love.

 

The outcome is to fall in love with yourself again or for the first time

The best part?

 

You get to experience this soul-awakening, in Paros, one of the most iconic islands in the Cyclades in Greece. The location hasn’t been chosen randomly, since the Greek summer light and warm Mediterranean Sea can rejuvenate your body, invigorate your soul and help you embody the whole essence of your femininity.

 

This Retreat is for you if you want:

 

to connect with your body and your intuition 

to discover, explore and express your authentic self

to heal your relationship with your femininity and body

to have a loving and supportive community of sisterhood

to embrace your wholeness and all aspects of your female identity

to deepen your love for yourself as the multifaceted woman that you are

to welcome your inner beauty, joy and wisdom and enjoy life at its fullest

Your Guide

My name is maria and I will guide you through this journey of transformation. I have dedicated my life to uncovering and loving all parts of myself, healing my relationship to my femininity and my body, and to honoring my identity as a woman.

In the Retreat, I will be sharing with you the knowledge, tools, and experiences that helped my journey of transformation from low self-esteem, body hatred, depression and bulimia to falling in love with myself.

If I could do it, I know you can too.

Now it is time for your own transformation!

“Life presents us with repeated opportunities to face what we fear, what we need to become conscious of, or what we need to master. The path of becoming is not linear, and it’s never ending. It doesn’t have a goal nor a destiny. Let’s embrace continuous transformation. To die (symbolically) and be rebirth again, and again, and again."

The Feminine Wholeness Retreat Experience

Fall in Love with your Self

Reground

Every morning we start our day with a yin yoga practice to reground

in our essence.

Let the sounds of the Mediterranean sea expand your awareness and connect with your inner center.

After the workshops there is plenty of free time to enjoy the beach,

get to know the island of Paros or relax  by receiving a massage.

Reveal

Every  day we have two  workshops , each one dedicated to one of the Greek Goddesses. 

We read and reflect upon their myth to get familiar and be inspired by their symbols and  images.

Playing with a variety of art materials that include drawing, creating with collage and clay, you deepen your connection to their multifaceted qualities.

We use embodied explorations and Authentic Movement, creating a safe, non-judgemental space where you are free to move and listen to your body’s wisdom.

 

This way you open yourself to receive the insights and understandings that each archetype reveals  for your healing and growth.

Replenish

What makes Okreblue more special, is the organic home grown vegetables that are used for the delicious meals at Caretta restaurant-lounge (Okreblue’s restaurant).

Breakfast and lunch are included in your stay. For the dinner you can choose to stay at Okreblue or go visit a village for more traditional plates.

As a Greek myself, I can't brag enough for how tasty Greek flavors are and you definitely need to try yourself at least once in your life.

Reemerge

Our last day is dedicated to revisiting and integrating all moments of our journey together.

There is time to enter the creative flow and become the artists and directors of your lived experience.

You will be delighted by the love, beauty, joy, wisdom and creativity that is hidden in your soul, ready to guide your life in more plentiful and wholehearted ways.

Our sacred circle is the loving holding space that welcomes each one of the women to emerge and share their unique experience.

All together we celebrate our colorful, multifaceted female essence.

Paros Island, Greece

Rejuvenate in the Mediterranean

Paros is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea best known for its beaches and Ms. Maria's traditional pastry.  Combining modern with traditional elements in the most unique way, Paros is a mix of traditional Cycladic architecture, vivid nightlife, magical beaches, enchanting rural villages, and historical monuments. 

The Okreblue Seaside Yoga Retreat Center in Paros, was created with love and care, for like-minded people to gather, practice and share yoga and other spiritual and self-exploratory practices. Coming to Okreblue you really get the essence of arriving at someone’s home. I personally visited Okreblue last summer to make sure you feel the warmth of true authentic Greek hospitality.

The Greek Goddess Archetypes

  As Mirrors of the Self

The archetypes are powerful inner patterns, forces within that influence what we do and how we feel. When we are able to understand them, we gain powerful insights that provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness.

One-Day Excursion

(Optional)

After the retreat you may want to go for a one day excursion to visit the islands of Delos and Mykonos.

Delos was one of the most sacred places of ancient Greece. The archeological site on the island is the remains of a sanctuary to the gods Apollo and Artemis. The on-site museum has one of the finest collections of ancient Greek sculpture. 

As the birthplace of Artemis and Apollo, Delos is the ideal place to have an embodied feeling of the Greek Archetypes' power.

Famous for its minimal Cycladic architecture, Mykonos is full of traditional whitewashed houses and blue domed churches. There you will have the opportunity to have lunch and treat yourself to some local Aegean specialties!
