Wild Ivy Retreat
with Breakaway Greece

9th - 16th September 2023 - Epidavros, Greece

Rosie & Caroline are so excited to announce that we are offering a weeks retreat in Epidavros Greece with our friends Chris and Helen at . 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 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.

Wild Ivy's Creative Flow Retreat

It will be a week of surprises - sprinkled with Wild Ivy magic. We will be offering daily group sessions, trips, nature walks, morning swims, creative nature making, meditation and picnics.   

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 other. We hope this playful week will leave you physically refreshed, and mentally inspired.

Your Hosts 

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 were so thrilled to see them last week on Channel 4's A New Life In The Sun which documents Chris and Helen's journey of setting up their villa to receive guests, focusing on cycling holiday's which is Chris' passion. But also creating a home from home for other types of holidays such as ours! 

We look forward to welcoming you to our first Wild Ivy on tour great adventure and Greek Odyssey.
