I invite you in a "paradise on earth" Greek island, in an Eco luxury villa, to join me in a transformative warm-hearted journey. You will discover the miracle of your authenticity, cultivate the art of belonging, re-design your life’s purpose, having plenty of time to enjoy the beach and the sun.

During our blissful holistic retreat week, as the Full Moon’s silver light rises from the Aegean Sea, I will playfully share with you the secrets of my own pathway, practicing mindfully, Yoga, Breath work, Dance and Meditation, detoxing with delicious vegan food. I will empower you to harvest the gifts of your inner beauty with simple everyday rituals, to celebrate your soul connection with Nature and to open the gate to a happier and more meaningful life.

If this call excites your spirit, join our Blue Bliss Retreat, a lifetime experience of abundant love and happiness.
