Well-Being Holidays in Eressos

ERESSOS TOURISM ASSOCIATIONWELL-BEING HOLIDAYS IN ERESSΟS, LESVOS, GREECE
25/6/2016 – 2/7/2016

Eressos, an enchanting location on the island of Lesvos with a history of centuries, is waiting for you to spend your WELL- BEING HOLIDAYS, organized by the Eressos Tourism Association. Homeland of ancient female lyrical poet Sappho and ancient scientist, philosopher and ecologist Theofrastos, Eressos presents animposing rocky landscape overlooking the deep blue in combination with lush green natural surroundings, unique sunsets and a virgin beach of 3 kilometers.

WELL- BEING HOLIDAYS aim at creating an alternative holiday atmosphere that offers benefits, such as spiritual and physical balance, inner peace, clarity of thought, stress relief, and awareness of our real needs and emotions.

We invite you to a journey of internal and external discovery through a variety of activities: experiential awareness workshops, philosophical walks in nature, laughing yoga, presentations and discussions, getting acquainted with traditional dances, the local cuisine and customs of the region. All the above under the guidance of our experienced instructors- psychologists, philosophers, writers, teachers and alternative therapists- who are more than willing to be at your disposal for 7 days.

WELL- BEING HOLIDAYS have been created for those who believe that tourism is not just an “organized package”, but a journey of emotional and physical energy combined with relaxation and entertainment.
