Meditation and Drumming in Crete
Celebration For All Your Senses 
7 August - 13 August 2022
with Anja Hertkorn and Peter Christl

Do you want to slow down, tap into your creativity and feel the excitement for you and your life in every fibre of your body?

Then you are in the right place!

We are pleased to be able to offer you a special combination of

  •     Restorative holiday with delicious food, blue sea, lots of sun
  •     Meditation and Drumming and a
  •     Creative process that will inspire you and take you in a new direction

Meditation is the key to letting go of the old, opening up paths to creative thinking and finding out who you really are.

Only when the mind comes to rest are we connected to the larger whole, to our soul, to what makes us what we are.

As long as we are mentally occupied with the past or the future, the spirit always falls back on the past, something it knows, every time it tries to bring about a change. There is no room for inspiration. Creativity can only arise in the here and now.

Imagine you could create something new, something you have always wanted, but which you have not been able to achieve due to the old programs?

"If you can begin your practice with the understanding that all you’re doing is relaxing your body (just like when you’re falling asleep) while keeping your mind conscious and awake—and if you can continuously move deeper into this state of relaxation while focusing on nothing (or not thinking)—you’ve just opened the doorway between the conscious and subconscious mind. If you’re not trying to change anything, you can simply open yourself up to receiving unknown possibilities and create something new."


Dr Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden and many more report again and again how strongly our subconscious influences our thoughts, our feelings and our body. Depending on what we think and how we feel, we draw either happiness, health, wealth, helpful friends, fulfilling partnerships or unhappiness, disease, financial problems, loneliness or challenging people into our lives. Thoughts create feelings. When we feel bad, we have negative thoughts.

If we manage to change our thoughts, life energy and creativity can come back. Watch Bruce Lipton's video, in which he explains what can be done to reprogram the subconscious responsible for learned beliefs, entrenched behaviours, sabotage and the feeling of being a victim:

As you have seen in the video, it is quite possible to change old habits or adopted patterns.

What is important for you?
Would you like to
find fulfilment in your relationships?
Earn more money? Change your career? Cultivate loving friendships? Improve your health? Or is there another
problem you want to solve?

The Meditation Retreat in Crete is for you,
if you

  • Want to change yourself to live what you're here for
  • Want to get out of old thought patterns to leave sabotaging behaviour behind
  • Are always confronted with the same topics and you've had enough of it
  • Want to redesign your life and everyday life with inspiration and joy
  • Want to open up paths to creative thinking and express the enthusiasm you feel inside

  • Are ready to embark on an inner adventure and a leap of growth to trust in yourself and follow your inner guidance
  • Want to take new ideas and strategies with you in order to be able to implement necessary changes at home
  • Want to be lovingly accompanied for a week because you know that it is impossible to break out of old sabotaging behaviours alone
  • Like to meet nice like-minded people who are on the same path as you, in search of inner peace, joy of life, energy and happiness

What others say about the retreat:

Dear Anja! As I said at our last drumming session, words cannot express how replenishing, inigorating, liberating and truly transformative this past week has been. You and Peter are a truly magnificent couple exuding the kind of equanimity, harmony and loving kindness all partnerships should aspire to and emulate. Anja, you are a gift and an inspiration. K.H.

What we - Anja Hertkorn and Peter Christl - intend to do

Anja will give you the opportunity to experience the healing effect of chakra meditation and other forms of meditation in the morning. Meditation is the first step to allow our thoughts to become calm, so that we can open ourselves to inspiration, enthusiasm and creativity.

You will learn how to listen to and act upon the unlimited possibilities that lie dormant within you, so that life can be reshaped according to your own wishes. The freedom and lightness that will then arise is a feeling that no one who has already worked with Anja would want to miss.

Anja is an Energy Therapist, EFT Expert, Emotion Code Practitioner and has her practice in Brussels, where she has successfully supported many people in achieving their goals for decades. Anja offers seminars and workshops on topics such as: Chakra Meditation, EFT,  The Law of Attraction,  Relationship Issues, My Body - My Friend and  Feminine Power. You can find out more about her work and her career here.

By meditative drumming on African djembes with Peter, we dive into the universal primordial rhythm and are in harmony and flow with the other drummers. We feel attuned, alive, grounded and relaxed. This in turn opens the doors for this "magical power" - our individual creativity. It inspires and flows through us so intensely that words can hardly express this enthusiastic feeling of well-being. You can only experience it yourself.

At a body therapy workshop in Italy in 1996, Peter made the acquaintance of the djembe drum through a friend. Since then, under the name TAMTAO, he has developed various forms of drum playing such as meditative drumming - walking between the worlds for adults and the TAMTAO drum week for primary school children. You can find out more about his work here.

Location and Accommodation

Four great beaches around Paleochora

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 pure sandy beach (about 12 minutes' drive), on the eastern outskirts of the city there is a pure pebble beach (about 10 minutes) and the nearby mixed sandy and pebble beaches of Anidri (about 5-7 minutes), which are closest to our seminar centre.

Paleochora is a lively and entertaining town for going out and having fantastic food in typical Cretan taverns and restaurants, for sitting, looking and quenching thirst in cafés and bars.


The flights are to be booked individually and are not included in the seminar fee. You will receive exact details of how to get to the seminar centre after registration.
