Aegean Gathering 2023


After last year's Paros Gathering and this summer's UK Campout, we happy to announce that we are heading back to the Cyclades for a Five-Day vacation retreat on the wonderful island of Iraklia. This September, we are inviting you to join us to explore Cycladic serenity, island heritage, local food and drink,music, art, conversation, swimming, wellbeing, connection and transformation.


Iraklia is stark and beautiful, the most westerly island of the Small Cyclades, one hour south of Naxos. It’s quiet and traditional, unspoilt and an ideal destination for walkers and meditators alike. 

Leave behind the more hectic urban environment and bustling islands in favour of a relaxing few days enjoying the simplicity of small island life.

There are two settlements on the island, the tiny port of Agios Georgios and Pangaea, 4.5Km apart. Our accommodation is just ten minutes walk from the port and offers pretty much the best Cycladian sunrises you could ever wish for. 

The Five Day Programme will be very emergent include morning well-being activities such as meditation, yoga or Qigong.  We have an option to organise boat excursions (additional fee) to the island’s hidden beaches and coves, walks on traditional paths, imposing mountains, outings to stalactite caves and ancient ruins. We will immerse ourselves in local nature, history, myths and customs as we delight in the wild herbs, encounter goats living free in the mountains and and watch birds of prey circling. We will enjoy sharing stories, conversations and local fresh food and drink, cooking communally or at the local tavernas. 

Last year's Paros Gathering slide show / video will give an indication of the vibe...
