Are you truly following your path? Do you know how to listen to your inner guidance? Are you longing for a life less ordinary?

You are far greater and more powerful than you think. You have access to a source of immense wisdom to guide you through life. When you learn to tap into it, you find a deep knowing of yourself and your path. You recognise your own natural power instead of bowing to external authorities and structures. And you allow a flow of inspiration and creation into the world, of service to all.

This retreat is a call to return to your hearts guidance and loving embrace. It's a space to get out of your day-to-day 'box', awaken your natural gifts, inner intelligence and creative powers - and rediscover who and what you are.

'Awaken The Spirit Within: Crete Retreat' will be a 5-day adventure for diving into the present moment, connecting to your body, breath, emotions and pleasure, and rediscovering the beauty of your deeper nature and the wonder of your life's calling.

We will connect as a circle and move through meditation, movement, ritual, group sharing, journeying, silence, and partner/group exercises.

The retreat will be led by transformational leader Edward Pike, assisted by Rob Hamilton and local healer Ingrid Margarita. Guests Shaman HoniB and Michael Abraham will also lead a couple of sessions throughout the week - see full schedule below for details.



  • How to use your intuition and imagination to create your heart's desires
  • How to step into your role as channel of creativity and service for the good of all 
  • How to access, embody and open to your highest intuition, purpose and creativity
  • How to take action on your deepest desires in spite of fear and doubt


  • A space for transformation and healing through movement, meditation, sound, energy work, shamanic practices and group sharing 
  • A place to tune-in to your inner self and find clarity on your longings and desires as well as your blocks and patterns
  • Practices to ground in the body, open the heart and find pleasure in movement, emotions, sensations and impulses
  • Tools to develop and integrate energy work, access to higher consciousness and spirituality into your daily life


  • Be more present and aware of your breath, body, thoughts, feelings and intuition
  • Feel and communicate your needs, longings and desires with more clarity
  • Develop your emotional and intuitive guiding systems including accessing your higher wisdom at will 
  • Increase your pleasure, creativity, wholeness, joy, vitality and balance 
  • Develop a deeper sense of connection and desire to interact with others and the world





The workshop will take place in the beautiful Orizon Center, a stone’s throw away from the stunning little beaches of Kalami and with views of the Souda Bay.

Created by Ingrid Margarita, Orizon is a place of serenity, wellbeing and peace, in which every aspect is designed for you to relax, connect with your soul and with the surrounding nature.

The workshops will take place in the seminar room and in the spacious covered terrace just outside, as well as locations in the surrounding nature. You will stay in shared bedrooms in shared apartments (single accommodation is also available for extra cost).

Each apartment has its now private balcony with views of Souda Bay and access to the swimming pool. Organic local food will be served for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and refreshments available throughout the day.

'There were so many amazing moments throughout the week. I loved the collective healing that took place, the group sharing and beautiful insights. The retreat was a completely safe, caring, fun and supportive environment in which to do our inner work work and connect with ourselves and others.'

'I attended Edward’s workshop and had no idea what to expect. I loved the space, the music and the group. Edward's presence and guidance through movement felt nurturing, safe and freeing. I left feeling connected to my essence which feels sweet, wild and powerful.'
'The retreat was wonderfully safe, creative and open. I was so grateful for such an inspiring space to explore and connect, dive deep, move and express what was in my heart and life at the moment. Thank you for providing the support and guidance, and so much love.’
