We invite you in a transformative journey of conscious dreaming and reach a source of unlimited creativity and wisdom. Our eco-luxury hideaway in sun-kissed Mykonos will become our serene home for 8 days while we unfold our rolling flow practices in Delos island, one of Greece’s most powerful sacred sites.
During our Full Moon retreat week by the birthplace of the Gods, we will meticulously guide you to become a Dreamer of Dreams, so that you can invoke this untapped source of spiritual guidance and manifest miraculous events for yourself, your loved ones, and your community.
This holistic journey is for you, who are longing to embody your dreams through breathwork, meditation, yoga, dance, storytelling, chanting, journeying & journaling.
If this call excites your spirit, see below all the details about this once in a lifetime journey that we have prepared for you with an abundance of love.

Full Moon Cacao Ceremony
The key to Happiness is maintaining a healthy body while you honor your soul calling. All of our daily sessions are carefully designed to cleanse your body, restore your nervous system and elevate your energy flow with pleasure and joy while creative experiences and heartfelt group gatherings will open the space for a deep connection with your Dreamer self.
Our Hatha Vinyasa Yoga practice, in conjunction with the principles of Biomatic Anatomy, is linking movement with breath and awakens your body/spirit awareness. You will learn how to develop a daily practice of graceful movement sequences, details of physical and esoteric physiology and therapeutic relaxation techniques.
Guided meditations and drum journeys will lead you into the deepest self-insights and most powerful dream states at the end of our morning Yoga class.
Spirit Contact Dance
We begin by grounding ourselves, shaking and pulsing to release tension, increase blood circulation and connect with the cosmic energy of the Earth. Our breath expands into sound and our voice can be liberated. We enter a state of profound soul connection establishing a deep level of freedom - we reach our euphoric state of being.
Water Spirit Contact Dance
An aquatic bodywork that will enable you to embody the art of true belonging and trust oneness in the fluidity of the sea. Water is conductive so it can help us remember our true nature, it can facilitate a rebirth experience. While floating in the water, the absence of gravity releases our vertebrae and allows our spine to move in ways that are not possible on the land.
Myths and Dream Journalling
For the Ancient Greeks, dreaming was an opportunity to understand existence beyond the “awake” state and connect with higher divine energies capable of inspiring miraculous healing.
You will learn how to explore the untapped potential of your mind and spirit through the art of dream journaling and the power of Myth. Dive deep into the well of your inner being, and bring it into the light. You can write your world into being, too!
Our Sharing Circle, a sacred inclusive space that will support you to feel free to express your deepest longings, release old patterns and fears, shift perspective and activate new decisions, while simple yet profound Rituals will teach you how to fully enjoy your experience and be grateful to yourself, your community and the earth.
