'Shamanic Adventures' Retreat (Crete)

  • Orizon Center for Life & Creation Aptera Crete Greece (map)

Would you love to find deeper connection, clarity and purpose? To come home to your true embodied self? To experience unity with Earth, Spirit and a tribe of kindred souls? To rediscover what it truly means to be a spiritual being having a human experience?


After the success of last year’s ‘Shamanic Adventures’, I am joining forces with Ingrid Margarita once more, and inviting you and a circle of kindred spirits to Crete for the journey of a lifetime.

This powerful retreat is an invitation to:

  • Go on a multi-dimensional adventure into the heart of your true interconnected nature
  • Give yourself the space and time to reconnect with yourself and the world you live in
  • Allow the sacred beauty and aliveness of Crete to awaken your own inner essence


For 7 days, we will live on the edge of the Aegean Sea and…

  • Move, eat, play, dance, share and journey together as one tribe.
  • Explore some of Crete’s most sacred and beautiful sites
  • Connect with the spirits of the island in all their forms (elements, nature, animals, plants)
  • Dive into the present moment together and into our bodies, breath and feelings
  • Hold each other in a powerful space of awakening, alignment and embodiment
  • Allow all that is inauthentic to our true selves to arise and be processed


Ingrid and I have a powerful soul bond: our combined energies create a beautiful space in which deep connection, healing and transformation are pleasurable and effortless.

Leading from our hearts, we will guide the circle through various processes and practices such as movement, meditation, sound, shamanic journeying, connecting with nature, writing, drawing, energy and bioenergetic work, and group sharing.

Our relaxed and grounded style allows for you to easily access your own unique connection with Spirit, and to be guided to rediscover the love, wisdom and beauty within. 


This retreat is an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. You will leave:

  • Feeling inspired and experiencing the world in a completely different way
  • Feeling more grounded and embodied
  • Rooted in your connection with Earth
  • With a new sense of innocence, wonder and joy


  • Group work with Ingrid & Edward and a circle of kindred spirits
  • One-to-one intuitive attention from Ingrid & Edward
  • Pre-start call with either Ingrid or Edward
  • Follow-up group and 1:1 calls
  • Day trips to some of Crete's most sacred places 
  • Art materials throughout the retreat 
  • Beautiful Cretan food and shared accommodation by the sea
  • A fun, friendly and relaxing atmosphere


Ingrid is a gifted intuitive healer combining shamanism, energy practices and earth healing. Her whole being resonates with a deep connection with nature and the elements, and her presence invites you instantly into deeper grounding and joy. Living in Crete for nearly 40 years, she has a deep understanding of the islands’ energy and consciousness and will be leading us on journeys to sacred and beautiful sites. She runs the Orizon Centre where the retreat takes place. 

‘Ingrid opened my eyes to a new dimension in my life and the possibility of being able, on my own, to break the chains.’

For more information about Ingrid, her work and her retreat center:


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.

Day trips will all begin and end at Orizon.

'I attended Edward’s retreat 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.’

“Ingrid opened my eyes to a new dimension in my life and the possibility of being able, on my own, to break the chains.”

“Ingrid has a way to facilitate that feels so 'home' and free. She has beautiful exercises to assist ones’ presence and awareness and to help see with new eyes.”
