Greek Island Retreat ~ 2017
25th September 2017 ~ 7 or 14 Nights
About The Island
Amorgos is the chosen Island for this retreat and a gem of an island that remains unspoilt and steeped in
traditional white washed houses with many local tavernas and Kafineos (local cafes) to explore.
The island still
today grows many herbs that are used everyday for various teas, theraputic remedies, therapies and medicines.
Places to visit and explore open your mind to the local way of life and give you an opportunity to explore this beautiful
island, amazing scenery, vegetation, idillic villages and scenery and many old churches..
This Island natually holds therapeutic
energies and is in the centre of the
Aegean Sea a cluster of 24 islands which the ancient Greeks named Cyclades because they compared it with a circle that surrounds
the holy island and place of adoration of Apollonas in Delos.
of Panagia Hozoviotissa
The 1.000-year-old Byzantine Monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa, built on the cliffs 300 meters above the sea, is
a landmark for the island.
Agious George Dimitris Monestry
A small monastery dedicated to St George the Valsamitis. The water oracle was mentioned “as one of the worthy curiosity of the island”l. The
“speaking water” of Valsamitis stopped being active in 1967. Up to then, before any act, travel, engagement, transaction,
studies, people should consult their Agios Giorgos Balsamitis to submit query and receive the blessing.
The water was read by a monk wearing the stole, he was filling drop by drop a glass of the sacred water, reading and
explaining the visible, auspicious or ominous signs. While the clarity of the water was auspicious sign for the questioner,
it was necessary to interpret those who had crept into the glass: powders, aquatic insects, hair, dried leaves, etc.
