This two-day immersion on the mermaid shaped Island of Kerkyra, Greece is a deepening collaboration between two Greek “women of the water”
Apostolia Papadamaki and Sophia Michalopoulou
both of whom explore and specialize in their own unique ways, the potential of water to help us remember more of who we are.
WATER REMEMBERS is a form of aquatic bodywork that will enable you to embody a sense of true belonging and develop trust in the fluid oneness of the water element. We all come from the womb of our mother, immersed in amniotic fluid. Water is conductive so it can help us remember our true nature, and it can facilitate a natural re-birthing experience.
While floating, the absence of gravity combined with conscious breathing and witnessed by our full presence brings us into a dream-like state, a deep meditative zone. We can release stored emotions and patterns, heal trauma and «dance» in union with “Thalassa” our mother sea. The workshop is open to all, no previous experience is needed.
