The journey begins in the ancient city of Istanbul...

The city of Mosques, of chanting, of Sufi dancing, of exotic markets filled with spices, and mosaic lanterns, boho decor, colorful rugs and the winding alleys of the souks. Watch the golden sun as it sets over the city, seeing the ending of another day, only to awaken to more adventure tomorrow. With the rising sun, the city awakens, the morning prayers begin and the city begins to bustle. We will explore the enchanted city of Istanbul visiting The Blue Mosque, the grand bazaar, and become mesmerized at the fragrant spice market as we spend time with our sisters, our eyes are opened to the foreign culture and ambiance.

We will then fly to Greece, ancient Mesopotamia, the land so old, you can hear the secrets whispering in the wind. The land of Greek Mythology, of the Goddesses Athena and Aphrodite, of the ancient scholars like Plato, and Socrates, awakening our own inner scholar. In our explorations, we will go to the Acropolis, in Athens as it towers over the city, high up on a bluff, still watching, guarding as it did in days of old. As we walk through, we can tap into the energy of that time, we will meditate together, breathing, sensing the wisdom from those times. 

We will travel to Delphi, the home of the Oracle High Priestess who in ancient times would guide, and purify her visitors on their quest for understanding. We will explore the glorious ruins, in awe of the mysteries that lay dormant on that land. But as you sit and still yourself you hope to tap in and grasp a pearl of wisdom that may seep into your vibrational space as you connect into the energy of these mysteries.

Next, we move on to Meteora, meaning suspended. This mystical place of sacred monasteries perched precariously on pinnacles of rocks suspended between heaven and earth. A symbol of our interconnectedness to our own spiritual essence. The celestial landscape glistening with the ethereal glow of the sun at sunrise and sunset. This place is like no other, and the quiet silence of the mountains echoes back at you as you wander the old buildings and surrounding villages.

We then embark to Santorini, the island of pristine white buildings nestled on the cliffside above the deep blue Aegean Sea. There we will process all the wonders and experiences of the days before. We will take in the sights and observe the villagers going up and down the paths, as the ferries leave the port, off to other Grecian islands. See the colorful fishing boats, out at sea, and watch as they come in at days end to unload their daily catch. The fresh smells of Mediterranean cooking wafting from the windows of villager’s homes. Beaches inviting you for a stroll to dip your feet into the cool waters and see your reflection shining back at you. See yourself in a fresh light, one framed by the golden Grecian sun. This magical journey with your fellow sisters is a journey to awaken to your Goddess essence, as you come together in community to grow and explore.
