Wild Ivy Retreat
with Breakaway Greece
9th - 16th September 2023
Rosie & Caroline are so excited to announce that we are offering a weeks retreat in Greece with our friends Chris and Helen at www.breakawaygreece.com . The week is designed to relax, unwind, and destress you in a magical coastal setting with views, sounds, smells, and authentic Greek flavours that will elevate your spirit. Wild Ivy & Breakaway is all about connecting back to nature, ceremony, ancient wisdom, taking time amongst spring flowers, secret picnics, early sunrising swims, late night star gazing, foraging and re-aligning our bodies to break through creative blocks. Through storytelling, music, poetry, art we will do some self- discovery and see the bigger picture of our lives, meeting our most creative selves and taming our inner critics through play, art and creative exploration.
Creative Unblocking Retreat
If this sounds like your cup of tea. Be whisked away to spend a week in the outdoors paradise of the Peloponnese. It’s like the Greek island of your youth – beautiful, quiet and a place where simply life itself feels rich - rich with history, culture and the taste and smells of local cuisine.
Only ninety minutes from Athens, we are at the centre of Ancient Greece.
It will be a week of surprises - sprinkled with Wild Ivy magic. This playful retreat will shed light on any inhibiting emotions, dissolve them and leave you with a new and joyful confidence.
We are inspired by being at the site of the world’s first-ever health sanctuary. Through connections with nature, storytelling and relaxation meditation, we will daily connect to the physical and emotional aspects of a different element each day. We explore what happens when we are out of balance as we devote our days to different nature themes,
With amazing scenery and weather, we offer plenty of time to relax, on your own or with others, and leave us, physically refreshed, and mentally inspired.

At Wild Ivy Retreats together we, (Caroline and Rosie) share a deep love for nature, art and creative mindfulness. In designing each event, we as always allow nature to lead the way so we can be present in the moment. When we are fully present, our senses expand, we see more, we hear more, we feel more, time slows down, we remember who we are, we remember what is important.
Our hosts Chris & Helen makes sure each guest enjoys their very best trip but being from a Greek family, and with a lifetime living it, Helen oversees all hospitality!
We look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful Adventure. Please message us at hello@wildivyretreats if you have any questions. For direct booking go to www. breakawaygreece.com
