wild island retreat

a love letter from nature

Samothraki Island, Greece

Sunday 18th - Saturday 24th June 2023

I invite you to join me for a week-long retreat across the Summer Solstice on a magical & wild island in Greece.


slow down & listen

immerse in nature

come home to your truth

a creative re-wilding & remembering for the body, mind and soul

of myth and magic


the retreat.

a pilgrimage for the senses on a remote greek island

We start each day with slowness and some silence.  

An early morning guided practice in gentle embodiment and meditation on the beach or at the villa, to support you to tune into your body and allow receptivity in connecting to the wild natural environment.  Followed by a traditional Greek breakfast at the hotel, overlooking the sea.

Mornings are spent as a group on a guided land journey to one of the many natural wonders of the island: natural pools "vathres", waterfalls, volcanic beaches, the ancient sanctuary of the great gods, old oak forests & mountains.  

Afternoons are free for you to have self-exploration time or to indulge in a siesta. 

In the evening, we will meet together at the villa before tasting the delights of fresh local cuisine at some of my favourite tavernas.

We open & close the retreat with a gathering around the fire, sharing ceremonial cacao in a sacred place in nature. 

On the Summer Solstice ~ 21 June ~ we will make a pilgrimage to a remote beach or up the mountain with the option to spend the night sleeping out under the stars in nature.

The sea-view villa at the hotel is our communal space to share stories, drink tea made from local herbs, read, journal and relax.

Throughout our week together, I will be offering invitations for self-enquiry to support you into coming back home to yourself.

We will be moving with the internal rhythm of the group, together with the external nature & weather, therefore the daily schedule may change.  In the afternoons, optional group sessions, workshops & ceremonies may also be offered from local herbalists and other practitioners on the island. 


For the one with an adventurer spirit ~

The one who wants to connect deeper with the natural world ~

Who wants to tune out the external noise for a moment ~

Pause, take a breath, watch for dolphins ~

And listen consciously to the voice within.


the island.

An island of myth, initiation and mystery.

Homer wrote that Poseidon, the god of the sea sat on the top of the Fengari mountain (meaning "moon" in ancient greek) to watch the Trojan War.  Locals believe that Harmonia, the goddess of harmony was born and married on the island.  Once an island of great fame, travellers came from afar to be initiated at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods.  And the land holds many more stories.  



The ethos of the retreat is to support you to listen deeply and connect to your heart, truth & wisdom.  To nurture & empower you to feel your innate essence and gifts.  The invitation is to tune out from as much of the outside world as possible.  The island has much medicine to share and sometimes we are invited to slow down so that we can feel, hear and receive.

I have been on a deeply transformational & re-wilding journey with this land. I will be guiding from my heart,  intuition & experience supported by the many human, animal and plant teachers living on the island.


Our home for the retreat is the Samothraki Beach Boutique Hotel  located on a beautiful 30-acre hill on the south side of the island, overlooking the sea & sunset.

This will be an intimate retreat with a group of up to 8.

You will have your own Sea-View suite to allow for solo-time & spaciousness for your experience. Seven of the suites are located in their own separate block surrounded by gardens & one is next to the villa overlooking the pool.

The Villa at the hotel will be our communal area. It has a large wrap-around terrace with views of the sea and mountain, it's own private garden, spacious kitchen and relaxing living area.



Retreat cost: €1850 (euros) per person in a private sea-view suite (with an en-suite bathroom).  Non-refundable deposit of 500 euros to secure your place.

Inclusions: 6 nights accommodation with all meals. All group activities. Basic camping equipment provided if we sleep out in nature.
