Healing Waters QiGong Retreat Details
16 - 21 October 2023 in Loutra Edipsou, Evia, Greece
Bathe in the healing hot waters, enjoy the benefits of QiGong practice for body mind and spirit and feel yourself rejuvenated, balanced and calm!
There will be two spa sessions and two QiGong practice sessions each day (apart from the day of arrival and departure when there will be time for only one). Weather allowing, the QiGong practice will be done on the beach but if it rains it will be hosted at the hotel’s seminar space.
Each morning we will begin our day with a morning spa session followed by breakfast. After some free time we will have our morning practice starting with a semi supine lying down session followed by an hour of QiGong. Lunch and after lunch will be free for you to enjoy your time as you wish. Each afternoon practice session will start with QiGong and end with seated zen meditation during sunset. Then we will enjoy our second spa session of the day and have traditional dinner in a local restaurant.
On the third day we will visit (with a coach organised by the hotel) the Drimona village and its beautiful waterfalls. We will do our practice there and enjoy the scenery with an option of individual lunch or just tea at the local village.

All the above at 175 € per person for a double room**
** There are other accommodation options at different prices, such as single room (275€), 3 bed room (125€ per person), 4 bed room (105€ per person).
We have planned for a group dinner every day at a local restaurant (Select Option 5)
Cost: €15.00 per meal, per person
Menu: a la table, meat or vegetarian by arrangement (includes main course, side dish, starters, salads and dessert). The price doesn’t include drinks.
If you do not wish to join us for the dinners then you can opt out of this. (Option 6)
Getting there and back
Because the location is 3 hours away from Athens International Airport, the hotel provides transportation from and to the airport scheduled in relation to our flights. (Select Option 2)
The coach can seat 12 people and if we reach this number then the total cost of transport will be 50 € per person. If we are fewer than 12 then the total of 600 € (for both ways) will be divided by the number of participants.
It is important for me to know if you are interested in coming on the same flights so I can organise the transport from the airport to Loutra Edipsou where our hotel is.
If someone prefers to stay and see Athens before or after and travel independently, then they should either have to meet the coach at the airport when the others arrive or to arrange private transfer services as there is no easy way with public transport. (Options 3 or 4)
You can see the area on Google maps here: https://goo.gl/maps/D7DhsE7zkoRzpwL26
You can opt out of the dinner option, the group transportation or the QiGong practice. Just let me know your preference by selecting numbers from the list above.
Please express your interest as soon as possible because that would ensure that the flights can be booked in a low price.
