It's a 30-person group (like Mexico) and will have some really wonderful facilitators:
your very own Paul Kuhn Aristotle Loumis, founder of Ellison Eyewear (HQ'd in Greece) Deb Courtney (from Mex!) for emotional processing & support Jordan Daly & Ramesh Narine, wellness/bodywork/medi
The group will start in Athens, staying in airbnbs & hostels and doing 3 1/2 days of intense but rewarding streetwork with Syrian Refugees, alongside Emfasis Foundation. They've recently won awards for the quality of their work, which combines grassroots relief (supply delivery, emergency services) with real compassion and humanity: playing games with kids, and bringing light into an often dark reality. We'll hear from speakers, and learn more context for this challenging issue playing out in Athens.
Then you'll head to the port and hop on a charter to the Island of Naxos, where you'll have 3 days to process the experience in the beauty and serenity of the Greek islands. Yoga, meditation, and shared meals, outings and hikes will be woven into these integration days with your 30 new friends.
