What are you doing with what you learned during the Great Pause?
Looking for a place to ripen, restore, find connection with yourself, with nature, and to endeavour your dream?
ReSISTERS is a 5-day holistic and immersive retreat that brings women together to find connection and support each other as they rest, recreate and regenerate. Harvest organic wine while sharing stories and creating community. Our retreat is a sanctuary, safe space and healing portal for women who want to dig deeper into their lives, spiritually and creatively, explore a new venture, or just get away to relax, while taking vinyasa, hatha, yin and restorative yoga classes, hikes in nature and swims in the glorious, cerulean blue Ionian sea. AND you will walk away with your very own bottle of wine, harvested by you! Meals are vegan or vegetarian and organic, cooked by a local chef with ingredients from our 18-hectare ego-farm, where we make our very own olive oil and herbs.
Connect with nature
Connect with other women
Connect with yourself

On my thirty-plus years journey working globally at the intersection of media, development and social justice, I’ve learned the simple art of listening is one of the most precious and powerful tools we have to drive deep change. I believe powerful and surprising things happen when people searching find themselves in a room with strangers, discovering together new ways of seeing, new ways of being. Even in uncertain times, maybe especially in uncertain times, our stories help cement our values and strengthen our connections. Sharing them shows us the way forward. Listening internally to ourselves first and then widening out in broadening circles (as Rilke so beautifully expressed) to our family, community, universe.
I have purposefully crafted this retreat for women who are considering making a life turn, changing careers, starting a new business of social enterprise, leaving a relationship or entering a new one, or simply just needing to deeply relax. We welcome all who are seeking and want to make a safe space for you to explore your wonder. I am a certified yoga teacher, and also work as a professional documentary filmmaker, journalist and NGO leader for over 25 years.
