... A mythical and legendary mountain, home of the centaurs and Chiron, the wounded healer, located in Thessaly in central Greece.

Kissos Centre...
... part of the Kalikalos Holistic Network.

Exploring movement through the sensing body and the thinking mind. Learning about the philosophy of the Alexander technique we invite the dynamic of integrated balance while addressing our postural behaviour. We will learn to experience sensations through set forms of movement. The forms will encourage the physical body to open, connecting our inner feelings to our outer relationship with the environment, re-aligning our intentions and our actions. The thinking mind will respond to these forms of movement according to ingrained habitual patterns of reaction, so prior to movement we will invite the body and mind to rest. This will bring attention to the present moment and allow our awareness to develop through stopping, the use of inhibition and directed energy in movement. In this way we will challenge those habitual patterns and allow a new experience of freedom in movement to develop, freeing ourselves from patterns causing aches, pains and stress.

The group will meet for a minimum of 4 to 5 hours each day. Morning and late afternoon. Our aim is to encourage awareness, as the mind let go of preconceived ideas of how to be, the body reawaken to the present moment and the healing we seek naturally occur.

The workshop itself will consist of 20 hours of group lesson during the week, plus one to one 40 minute lesson one evening of the week after the beach at 18.15, to be scheduled with the karma yoga timetable.

Many other activities are included and the schedule to your day will be filled if you wish from 7.30 am with Qi Gong or Tal chi plus meditation. The workshop session will start at 09.45 and run to to 13.00, when there will be free beach time with picnic.

In the evening the center is filled with activities such as healing circle, dance, film, village pub and a fireside community meeting on Thursday.
