Odyssey - The Delphi Retreat!
Journey with us to Greece for Yoga, Meditation
Sunday, September 1, 2019 through Sunday, September 8, 2019
When Lara and I came to these sacred grounds last summer we knew we had to share them with you. My words will not do this justice, I can only say, You will be left in awe. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, the energy is positive and powerful, and the people friendly and beautiful. Walking through the sanctuary ruins in the footsteps of the millions who journeyed from all corners of the known world on this spiritual pilgrimage - awakens and inspires your mind to unforeseen possibility. ⠀
Enjoy Special Yoga seasonal sequence and meditation with Lara Alexiou and Julia Treat this awe-inspiring setting. We have acquired very special permits to host Yoga & Meditation at the Ancient Ruin Sanctuary of Apollo, Temple of Athena Pronea, and Corycian Cave Evi-Evvan to Dionysos & Nymphs.
Ancient Greeks believed that Delphi was the center of the world. To find the exact center point, Zeus, the king of gods, let two eagles fly in opposite directions from the top of Mount Olympus. They crossed paths in Delphi, which is how the omphalos (navel) of the Earth was discovered.
The Oracle of Delphi, or Pythia, was famous throughout ancient Greece. Millions of people from all across the ancient world traveled to the area seeking advice. The Oracle served the God Apollo, after he slew Python, the monster who protected the navel of the Earth. As a tribute to Apollo, the Pythian Games were held every four years, and became the precursor of the Olympic Games.
