The pursuit of euphoria—connecting, growing, and savoring life's experiences

Our Euphoria Series events and retreats are designed to combine gastronomy and wellness in specially selected environments and with people that inspire us. 

At the heart of this project is "euphoria" which for us means: connecting with like-minded people and practicing personal growth, while sharing delicious food and wine experiences.

 

​For our next event, we are travelling all the way to crete, to spend 3 days in the beautiful village-hotel Kapsaliana. The hotels story begins in Crete at the time of the Venetian Occupation, circa 16th century. Kapsaliana in Rethymno was a small settlement -“metochi”, part of the Arkadi Monastery estate. Arkadi, the island’s most emblematic cenobium, existing from the Byzantine times played such a heroic and dramatic role during the Cretan War of Independence that UNESCO designated it as a European Freedom Monument

The FOOD

DINNER

The welcome dinner will be inspired by the purity of the land surrounding the hotel. Michelin-Star Executive Chef Pavlos Kyriakis has curated a menu to reflect the fine ingredients at our disposal. Thrilled with the quality of local produce, the freshness from the trees, vineyards, indigenous and ancient grains, and both old and modern varieties of vegetables from our orchard, he has devised a gourmet yet refined concept of Cretan cuisine.

 

 

GASTRONOMY PICNIC PARTY & WINE TASTING 

We will enjoy a private picnic party in a secluded spot in the hotel gardens, pairing local delicacies with a wine tasting experience from top Greek biodynamic producers.

We will explore how the fundamental principles of the biodynamic approach and sustainable well-being, when intentionally integrated, can elevate our sense of euphoria both in our glasses and in our everyday personal and professional lives. This experience will be led by Mr. Vertigo and Executive Coach Penelope Dimitrakopoulou.

Also come for the music and the vibe <3

Soundbath

With Manolis Zografakis, Sound Therapist, Meditation Practitioner, Music Producer

A sound bath is an enchanting journey into sound, where you're invited to lie down, relax, and let the healing vibrations of instruments wash over you. Imagine being immersed in soothing sound waves that gently lead you to a place of profound calm, helping to ease stress, chase away fatigue, and lift the clouds of depression. It's a simple, yet incredibly powerful way to connect with your inner self, even if you've never meditated before.
