"To have the stars above, the land to your left and the sea to your right,

 to realise in a sudden, that in your heart, 

life has accomplished it's final miracle... it has become a fairy tale."

Take a Journey...

WRITING combined with guided MOVEMENT and MEDITATION is one of the most powerful tools of self-discovery, healing, and transformation. 

WRITING helps you to objectively explore the inner landscape of all aspects of your 'Self' through understanding Archetypes and Myths; symbolic mirrors of life and the universal patterns of human nature.

Through MOVEMENT and MEDITATION you open the treasures of your subconscious mind, awakening your intuition and igniting the true source of your power and creativity.

MOVEMENT and MEDITATION is an opportunity to fully embody the 'Soul Within' so you can live and create from a state of beauty, flow and grace.

ABOUT CORFU

image10

Corfu is known as the Venetian jewel of the Ionian and is full of picturesque villages, Venetian architecture, impressive traditional buildings, olive groves, lush vegetation and beautiful beaches.


Sunsets, sandy beaches and clear seas have made this Ionian island a favourite. Here you’ll discover what makes Corfu truly magical: the scent of pressed olives, monasteries draped in bougainvillea, and fortresses that rise above bluer-than-blue seas.


In addition to its picturesque setting, relaxed way of life and delectable food, the Greek island of Corfu is also steeped in cultural history.  The origins of Corfu can be traced back as far as Greek Mythology. The island’s Greek name, Kerkyra is related to two powerful water symbols: Poseidon, God of the sea, and Asopos, a prominent Greek river.


With its rich, mountainous landscape, Corfu offers a beautiful view to its visitors. Dominated by mountains, the island has a never ending expanse of rolling hills and blossoming trees, bursting with lush vegetation. Coastal areas offer tranquil white sandy beaches, while the shimmering blue sea provides a perfect backdrop to the green countryside.

From Marianna

This is my personal invitation to YOU...

IMAGINE yourself sitting on a beautiful villa balcony overlooking the golden horizon, where the deep blue-turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea meets the vastness of a starlit sky. 


The gentle wind brushes softly against your body reminding you to FEEL, to breathe, to take in the beauty and mysteries of this ancient land. 


You are given a glimpse into a time when gods and goddesses walked the Earth in sacred reverence; each one embodying a unique expression of the SOUL within them. 

 

Your senses begin to AWAKEN. You notice all the stress, mind-chattering thoughts, limiting beliefs, and the programs of every day routine melt away.


SILENCE enters your being, penetrating you so deeply that you hear the invitation; you hear it whispering in the echos of the wind and in the lullabies of soft crashing waves; it is a call from your SOUL, inviting you to...
