We, Anja and Peter,
would like to invite you to the MetaCom seminar centre, in the south-west of Crete, to help you find your rhythm and peace while being on holiday.
Let us tell you about how we came across MetaCom!
Last August we went on holiday for two weeks in Crete. The beautiful
landscape of the island and the Greeks’ hospitality always evoked a great
feeling. After travelling 5 days in the north and west of the island, we
arrived in a small coastal town called Paleochora (also known as “Pale” between
locals, which doesn’t do its landscape justice).
It was the 15th of August and the Greeks were celebrating a Christian national holiday, which unfortunately for us meant that there were no vacancies all around.
This had never happened to us before. For years we’d always travelled around Crete finding rooms spontaneously while being on the road.
Then we remembered
that Mario Sommer, whom we had met 6 years earlier, had founded a seminar
center in the mountains between Paleochora and Anidri called MetaCom.
We hadn’t seen him for a long time so it was to our great relief and surprise when he picked up the phone, confirmed a vacancy and offered to pick us up from ‘Pale’.
At six o’ clock the locals came out to the main square to prepare for the evening festivities. No more cars passed through.
We met up with Mario in a nearby cafe. With his tanned complexion and tied up, long hair he could have easily passed for a Greek himself.
He told us about the evolution of MetaCom during the past years over a cup of coffee and then finally hopped on his motorbike to lead the way out of the centre. After 10 minutes the scenery changed to a rich landscape full of olive trees and a beautiful view of the setting sun on the ocean. The road led uphill and after passing through a great valley, we arrived at MetaCom, which has been praised for its ecological construction, 10 minutes later.
We received our keys and were extremely grateful to have found a place for the night. Now all we still wanted to do was eat! Mario gave us the following tip:
A restaurant in Anidri, about 2km further away but easily reachable by car. In the full restaurant we were immediately greeted and shown to a table for two in the back by the chef and the food was delicious.
“Unbelievable! You are lucky people! On national holidays like these you usually have to wait for at least an hour before getting a table!” Mario exclaimed the following morning.
Before heading back to Pale we cooled off from the heat in Mario’s most recent construction, which he finished in 2013 with the help of a few friends: a small clay dome built entirely out of ecological materials. It was comfortably cool and quiet.
As we sat there Peter had an idea: “We should start a seminar here at MetaCom and share this wonderful place, with its sun, beaches and ocean, with other people”.
I agreed and added: “ And help them find their inner source of energy and tranquility”.
We decided to turn this idea into reality and therefore kindly invite you to our
For your holiday to have the long lasting relaxing effect you’ve always longed for, we’re offering you simple techniques, tips and exercises to help prepare you for your working routine.
To help you find yourself and get inspired with new ideas, we’re offering you a holiday far away from your usual environment during which you will:
With this meditation technique we’ll be focusing on setting your chakra energies in motion. Chakras have an empowering influence on our organs and fuel our bodies with new energy. They also affect our hormones, emotional and mental state, and spirit. A well-balanced energy household is the basis for our physical, emotional and mental health. You will learn, with help of the Chakra meditation techniques, how to heal your symptoms and get to a state of pure relaxation while simultaneously getting an energy boost.
TAMTAO - drum songs are easy to complex rhythms (but always playable for beginners) which are accompanied by a spoken text. Through our mutual concentration on the rhythm, text and drumming we'll leave our thoughts behind and arrive in the present. This process will enable us to open the gates to the "magical power" of our individual creativity. This power is so intense and inspiring that words can hardly describe the soothing sensation that comes with it. You can only experience it.
We'll also be drumming meditatively "between the inner and outer worlds". The state of awareness is created through concentration on drumming and consideration for what is happening in the moment within yourself and the group: a special experience which will increase self-awareness and lead to inner peace and relaxation.
A background in meditation and/or drumming skills isn’t necessary.
The workshop is for adults and not suitable for children.
We need at least 4 participants for the workshop to take place.
