IDEAS ABOUT HAPPINESS
Did you know that the best-preserved ancient Greek temples cannot be found in Greece but on the Italian island of Sicily and that numerous Greek philosophers lived in Sicily? To this day, this island is still a truly mind-opening place – you can’t help but think and experience more deeply.
The next trip to Sicily is coming up in 2024! Join my email list to stay tuned.
We stayed at a beautiful, clifftop villa just south of Taormina, with breathtaking views over the Mediterranean Sea and Mount Etna.
Celebrated the Summer Solstice with a special guided meditation.
Explored the Ancient philosophical writings by Aristotle and Plato (who spent most of his life on Sicily). Study the Philosophy of Happiness and compare it to the teachings of the Baghavad Gita. These Greek and Indian teachings are about the same old and are remarkably similar in their approach to happiness.
This is a retreat that combines yoga, healthy living, positive affirmation of life, cultural studies, and spending time in nature. Besides visiting archaeological sites in Agrigento, Siracusa, and Taormina, you will also visit a fifth-generation winery and enjoy a fabulous Sicilian dinner!
Every bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and access to the balcony. This venue allows the quietness and space for a yoga retreat. And it comes private access to swimming in saltwater or to seek a silent meditation spot.
