A Midwinters Dream.With Pagan Poetry Into The New Year

Hey, YOU!

Are you also not in the mood to spend new years eve in the city?

You actually don't like new years eve?

Are you annoyed of mainstream capitalistic Babylon holidays?

Don't you know what it's all about? Just the "coming together "makes sense for you?


Then come with us on vacation over New Year's Eve to France!...


We will enrol the whole thing, back to the point before commerce,

When it was still about contemplation, protection and new beginnings...

Come with us to the south of France from 28.12. - 02.01.2021!

We will honour the "Rauhnächte ", the twelve nights, the rough nights of pagan poetry, and celebrate rebirth!....


Which? Yours! The one of the light!

What is light? - It is clarity, joy, shining skulls and radiating hearts


We spend our time together here with


holistic exercise


clean vegan gluten-free food

Tibetan purifying practices


shiatsu massages or healing sessions (optional)

The days before New Year's Eve we are dealing with the old, the death, the letting go and honouring... and step into the new year (with what we have put down or dressed on new)


5 Elements Dance Meditation

cacao ceremony

vegan feast

The first day of the New Year is full of invitations, visions, creations and we finish the retreat on the 2nd of January, with great anticipation of all that is coming, after lunch …

Who Are We?


A native of Limassol, Cyprus with Greek nationality found his calling to gastronomy while being a Law student in the UK. He enrolled in Le Monde Institute of Hotel and Tourism Studies and embraced his new career with passion. 


Whether working and learning in 3 Michelin star restaurant  AZURMENDI, assisting in an organic farm in Tris Elies village or training under prominent world travelled sommelier such as Yiannis Kaimenakis his knowledge and appreciation for the culinary industry grew.

His work is driven by understanding deeper the values of Sustainability, Biodynamic Agriculture and Holistic Nutrition.


Sunny will be leading the practices in this retreat. The morning yoga will prepare the body for the meditations, assisted by Tibetan cleansing techniques. The highlight will be the 5 Elements Dance Ritual and some Yin, and Yang Yoga practises.
