We welcome the spring with a three-day (29-30-31 March 2019) excursion to the historical hot springs of Edipsos and dedicate some time to our body, mind, and spirit. We will stay in the luxurious spa hotel “Τhermae Sylla,” and follow a mild program with philosophy, physiotherapy, yoga,
The mineral springs of Edipsos have been famous for their healing properties since the 4th century B.C. The Ancient Greek writers and philosophers such as Aristotle, Strabo, and Plutarch wrote about these springs. In Edipsos the mineral spring water springs from natural wells as deep as 3,000 m at temperatures of 75-85ο C.
Heracles is said to be visiting the hot springs of Edipsos after every feat, and he stayed for a few days there to heal his wounds and regain his supreme powers.
In over the last 8-9 years, several Russian cosmonauts are visiting the Thermae Sylla spa for Space Recovery Treatment, having a special team of Russian scientists and athletes watching them daily and training them.
Our three-day retreat program starts on Friday afternoon and lasts until Sunday afternoon. It includes:
- 2 speeches by acupuncturist and holistic doctor Vassilis Tritakis
