It’s a fabulous surprise gift for yourself or a friend. Please note each book has been pre-loved and pre-read for you. Yes they’re 2nd hand but they’re all for upcycling in Australia and especially at the Etsy shop “Six Things.”
We’ll spend our days eating long meals together outdoors, learning photography & the art of visual storytelling, and enjoying conversation & discussion with one another as well as exploring all the island has to offer—sailing, fresh seafood, and gorgeous beaches. The villa we’ll call home during the retreat is a few minutes walk from a beach, and tapas, cava, and sun promise to be plentiful.
We plan to allow plenty of down time for reading & writing, napping, swimming, discussions, photo editing, sun bathing & sipping, or simply doing nothing at all. There will also be a watercolor painting class with a local artist, a sunset beach picnic, and a paella cookout.
The purpose of this retreat is to recharge, rejuvenate, relax, and reconnect. Creativity can only blossom if we allow ourselves to be still once in a while; we see more clearly when we slow down & ideas come fresh.
What this won’t be is a hectic, highly structured “workshop”—it’s truly a retreat.
The days will largely be spent painting; lingering over meals together; learning & practicing photography; having group discussions; relaxing at the villa; and exploring the island. This is a retreat devoted to creating community & inspiration over slow food shared, creativity, and intentional discussion all while recharging in this luxurious perch nestled in the hills above the ancient Pyrgos village & surrounded by striking views of the cobalt Aegean Sea.
