Meditation and Drumming in Crete
Celebration of Life Retreat 
6 - 13 August 2022

Isn't it time to recharge physically, emotionally and mentally after the last two exhausting years and enjoy life to the fullest again? What do you need to settle down and to find your balance?

The Celebration of Life Retreat offers you an unforgettable experience of self-renewal, enthusiasm and deep connection. Whether you've meditated or drummed before doesn't matter.

Guided FIND HAPPINESS WITHIN meditations will help you find inner peace and create an inner space to connect with yourself and hear the voice of your soul.

SHARE YOUR ENTHUSIASM - Drumming on African djembes will make your joy and enthusiasm vibrate in every fibre of your body. A colourful mix of drum rhythms will ignite your inner fire and clear your head.

A simple COME TO LIFE routine will wake you and your body up in the morning and make you want to embrace the day ahead.

Greek healthy pleasures will not only delight your palate but also nourish your soul.

Location and accommodation

The Celebration of Life retreat takes place in the seminar centre "Metacom" on Crete. Located near Anidri in the olive grove hills behind Paleochora, Metacom offers a wonderfully quiet location in nature, beautiful and simple rooms with air conditioning in ecologically built mud houses (cool in summer, warm in winter), a wonderful seminar room, a small meditation temple, a tippi tent and friendly and kind hosts.

The idyllically situated centre, which we have entirely to ourselves this week, invites you to ultimate relaxation, letting go, becoming more aware and enjoying. The popular beaches of Anidri and Paleochora are only a few minutes' drive away.

Accommodation is in single and double rooms. 

The fantastic beaches around Paleochora

The beaches around Paleochora are a dream with crystal clear water. The heat is well bearable, as the 7 winds of Crete always provide a cool breeze. The beaches are easy to reach by car or scooter; beaches that could not be more varied:

On the western outskirts of Paleochora there is a sand-only beach (about 12 minutes drive), on the eastern outskirts there is a pebble-only beach (about 10 minutes) and the side-by-side mixed sand and pebble beaches of Anidri (about 5-7 minutes), which are closest to our seminar centre.

Paleochora is a lively and fun town to go out in with typical Cretan tavernas and restaurants. The Greek Mediterranean cuisine is one of the healthiest in the world.  After a good dinner, cafés and bars invite you to sit, watch and quench your thirst.
