I am waiting for you with Love

Samothraki sits alone in the northeastern Aegean, halfway between the mainland port of Alexandroupoli and Limnos. This lush, forested island boasts one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece: the ancient Thracian Sanctuary of the Great Gods. Also, here stands the Aegean’s loftiest peak, Mt Fengari (1611m), from where Homer recounts that Poseidon, god of the sea, watched the Trojan War unfold.

Another important aspect of this island is that here was the place of gathering of a very important spiritual mystery. The Cavirian Mysteries (similar to the Elefsinian Mysteries). In these mysteries people who were ready would be initiated into the esoteric path from the priests and mystics.

Samothraki’s mountainous interior, filled with massive gnarled oak and plane trees, is ideal for hiking and mountain biking, and the island’s waterfalls, plunging into deep, glassy pools, provide cool relief on hot summer days. Remote southeastern beaches are pristine, while the north offers hot baths at Loutra (Therma). Inland from the main fishing port of sleepy Kamariotissa lies the former capital, Hora, bursting with flowers and handsome homes, all overlooking the distant sea.

The island’s remoteness means that it’s often forgotten by island hoppers, but devotees of ancient archaeology, unique cuisine and superb hiking will find it worth the effort to get here!!

 

In this unique place we will spend 6 days & 5 nights in Ktima Holovai appartments. in a beautiful place in frond of the sea http://www.ktimaholoway.com/#!/eng-home

The island is a unique energetic and spiritual place where from ancient times greek priests, kings and other important persons were gathering for initiations and finding their path in life. The island has kept it’s wild and unique energetic structure through the ages and it will be available for us to discover it and experience the Spirit of the island.
We will do special hikes in places of power like Fonias, gria vathra, paradisos (paradice), kipoi, palaiopolis and many more.
There exist natural ponds inside the mountain which governs the center of this island.
We will swim, meditate in the Aegean Sea, and explore the spirit around the arheological site of the Sanctuary of the Great Gods. Here is a very ancient Greek spiritual site where many famous people around the world were gathering to celebrate the Cabiri (or Cabirian) Mysteries. It is also the place where the statue of the Victory of Samothraki (now at the Louvre, in Paris) was found.
Our purpose is to discover the spirit of ancient myths and awaken the power of the Greek mysteries.
