Reboot | Recharge | Reconnect Retreat
September 2 – 9, 2016
Eumelia, Peloponnese, Greece
Imagine spending 8 days in a luscious olive grove in the middle of Greece’s pristine Peloponnese region with the exclusive intention of discovering and reconnecting with your authentic self in a select community of like-minded individuals.
The Reboot | Recharge | Reconnect Retreat will help you recharge your emotional, physical and spiritual self, reconnect with your highest purpose and reboot any areas of your life that need it.
Each day will include powerful group coaching, morning yoga and meditation, mindfulness practices (including an introduction to Noble silence), quiet time plus impromptu on-site activities such as a tour of a sustainable, bio-dynamic farm, a chance to hop on a mountain bike and visit the surrounding hills and farms, participate in a Greek cooking class, go for a walk in nature, visit farm animals or simply rest on a hammock under an ancient olive tree.
Off site excursions will give you an opportunity to swim in the nearby Laconic Gulf of the Mediterranean and hike in the local mountains. Each activity is carefully crafted to support your intentions to live mindfully and on purpose as you connect to your greatest and highest potential.
This Retreat is designed to give you a once-in-a-lifetime experiential process so that the greatest amount of deep transformation in your personal, spiritual, physical, financial and professional well-being can occur in the most intensive use of your time.
Daily opportunities will include learning in group coaching as well as spacious opportunities for individual inquiry, reflection and personal development work based on your goals and intentions.
Participants will delight in staying at the stunning and deeply peaceful Eumelia Organic Agrotourism Farm & Guesthouse located in the Peloponnese region of Southern Greece (Laconia), about three hours from the Athens International Airport, from which you will be transported upon your arrival.
Accommodations embody elegant simplicity with sustainable materials and are all double-occupancy for this Retreat, to provide for both the opportunity for quiet solitude and authentic, nurturing community.
Food and juices are prepared simply with fresh, organic ingredients from Eumelia and the surrounding area, offering the best of world-famous Greek cuisine, the cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet.
You will be one of only 6 hand-selected participants invited into the carefully curated community that will co-create the Reboot | Recharge | Reconnect Retreat.
You will be eager to dive deep into your self, cultivate your own spiritual fitness, invest in your well-being and the impact you have in the world, participate in an authentic community to support yourself and others, be in reasonable physical, mental and emotional health and begin to craft a MASSively(MASS) fulfilling life through Mindfulness, Authenticity, Spirituality and Sustainability.
And you must be totally committed to having fun while exploring the magic that is Greece!
Felina is an international, multi-lingual (sometimes goofy) coach whose life purpose is to help you own your authentic power and recognize that you, too, are a force of nature.
After a prestigious career in international development and consulting in the sustainability industry, working for such organizations as the World Bank and the European Union as well as multi-national corporations, her own breaking open moment came when she witnessed a traumatic car bombing while working in the field in the Balkans.
She is a dual Greek-US national who has lived in Greece as well as other countries in Europe and the U.S. and is passionate about bringing her unique, eclectic approach to cultivating spiritual fitness to individuals, groups and companies.
Since then, cultivating her own spirituality - and coaching and teaching others to do the same - has brought her to teach mindfulness and spirituality within organizations such as the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, the Betty Ford Center and in the Buddhist community near her home in Palm Springs, California.
Her impeccable left-brain credentials, honed at Georgetown and Johns Hopkins Universities, are a perfect complement for her ability to dive fearlessly into the deep waters of the spirit and willingness to share her own journey of healing.
Felina is fiercely passionate about bringing people to her beloved Greece to show them how a change of pace and slowing down can help them savor the simple pleasures of life, and hear the still, small voice within.
Retreat Coordinator and Yoga Instructor
Suzi Rice is an international certified yoga instructor and health & lifestyle coach who works with individuals to create radiant transformation to live more authentically vibrant, meaningful, and energetic lives.
Suzi had the serendipitous opportunity to complete a work-trade at the Omega Institute between her college graduation and entrance into Fordham’s Graduate School of Social Services, opening her to a holistic and spiritual way of being upon entering the “real world.” This experience propelled Suzi to complete her 200-hour yoga certification at ISHTA yoga NYC while simultaneously earning her Masters degree and recognizing early on that her life purpose was working with individuals, families, and communities utilizing an integrative approach that combined movement, nourishment, and all things spiritual.
Following her intuition, Suzi left NYC to travel the Southern hemisphere to immerse herself in Ancient Eastern culture and traditions. During this time, Suzi studied Vipassana meditation at a Thai Monastery in Chiang Mai, earned her 300-hour certified yoga instruction at the Aarsha Yoga Vidya Peetham Tradtional Haltha yoga center in India, earned her Pre-Post and Active Birthing yoga certification in Perth, Australia along with her Yin Level 1 certificate, and acquired her status as a Certified Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Suzicreated her personal yoga and health and lifestyle coaching business while living in Perth, Australia in 2015 and has since moved to Richmond, VA where she works as a Health Coach for the Virginia Commonwealth University and teaches Power Yoga in the community, while building her personal yoga and coaching business in the United States.
Suzi met Felina long ago while working at the Omega Institute, Suzi is thrilled and honored to co-create the luxurious space for Eumelia participants to reboot, reconnect, and recharge with their highest self.
Before, during and after the Retreat, she will serve as Retreat Coordinator, primary contact person for logistical, travel and other questions you may have and share her passion for yoga each day, to beginners and experienced yogis alike.
