Week of Inspiration
During the NATURE, BODY & SOUL week of inspiration at an unique location on the beautiful Greek island of Samos you’ll experience how mindfulness, yoga and qi gong can totally change your way of living.
By giving this week full attention to your body and mind, you can add more relaxation in your body, feel mentally connected to your inner self and make choices for a life that completely suits you.
On a beautiful spot overlooking the Aegean Sea there is next to the substantive part of the stay plenty of time to enjoy nature, beach and sea.
Experience of participants:
“Thanks for the nice week with many (new) insights”
“Thanks for your intense interference and the starters for change”
“It gave me inner peace on one side and on the other hand new energy”
“For me it was all inspiring and very well matched”
“I got the insight that I have to go my own way”
Program (subject to change)
During this week of inspiration we start every morning (except the free day) with hatha yoga, breathing exercises and meditation.
Every night (except the last day) we bring Qi Gong in practice. Qi Gong can heal your mind and body. We learn this week Shibashi: a form consisting of 18 movements. Through the slow, relaxed and conscious movements you gain the ability to internal harmony and balance. Your body is soft and thoroughly practiced, your emotions are calmed down and your mind is brought back in a peaceful state of wholeness.
During the two Mindfulness workshops you will learn to shift attention to the ‘here and now’ and leave other things to what they are. This way you can achieve some form of relaxation or discharge; in the head and in the rest of your body. And one day we will go for a mindful walk through the beautiful Nightingale Valley.
In addition, we visit the excavation of the Temple of Hera in Ireon. This will be under the guidance of Hillie Kuipers, the author of the book “Kélenóh, the last high priestess of Samos”.
The following optional activities are possible:
- personal coaching session
- Reiki treatment
- extra hike
During this week we stay in Villa Kambos, located on the green north coast of Samos.
The hotel is situated in gorgeous rolling countryside near the sea, surrounded by a breathtakingly beautiful garden.
The Greek-style villa has 10 atmospheric rooms and one luxury suite.
Start the day with breakfast on our special outdoor terrace, shaded by lovely almond trees.
Our delicious breakfasts consist of home-made pastries and jams, creamy Greek yoghurt and honey, and delicious fruit picked straight from our garden.
Villa Kambos is tucked away in vast green surroundings, perfect for hiking and biking. Stunningly beautiful walks can be enjoyed right from our doorstep.
The beach is a mere 5-minute walk away.
Regular bus services operate from the hotel to nearby villages and Samos Town.
Enjoy an evening meal in the nearby village of Agios Konstantinos, which is blessed with a variety of cosy sea-side tavernas, stretched out along the boulevard.
The traditional-styled rooms of Villa Kambos have large balconies with panoramic views of the azure-blue sea and the mountains with their beautiful green vegetation.
All the rooms are air-conditioned and equipped with a shower/toilet, a fridge, Wi-Fi connection and television.
