Anafi remains a pure island, still untouched by mass tourism
with one small traditional village and amazing trekking trails
leading to the most beautiful unexplored beaches.
The clear landscape and the endless view of the horizon
offer the ideal environment for our retreat.
The absence of awareness on our everyday life in the city
often leads to physical, emotional and mental strain.
For the few days that we will share on this beautiful island
our practice will include a combination of yoga classes and
meditations inspired by the mindfulness practices of Buddhist teachings
for cultivating inner peace and presence.
Mindfulness is knowing what you are experiencing, while you are experiencing it.
The practice of mindfulness “gives rise to understanding and liberation of the mind”.
It is the total awareness of the moment, simply being in the now, with a sense of freedom, of perspective, of being connected.
It helps to regulate our emotions, reduce stress, lower judgmental attitudes, improve memory and focus.
“To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still”
