Eco-Dromes is an idea, born in 2021, in an era where man needed more than ever his re connection and contact with Nature. With the rapid speeds and developments we face in our lives now and the alienation of our physical being that we constantly accept, we have lost our balance as we disconnect from Nature!
Eco-Dromes is a project which is carried out in collaboration with the partner and member of the Hellenic Ecopsychology Society, Vivian Karavanou, Psychologist/Psychotherapist/Ecopsychologist and Mindfulness Instructor.
It is a call to authentically connect people to co-create a life experience, joyful, unprecedented and meaningful,which will lead them to the best version of themselves.
The program includes experiential Ecopsychology, Ecotherapy and Mindfulness workshops, which aim to connect with the body, soul and spirit, with the elements of the surrounding nature, through innovative workshops in landscapes of unparalleled beauty.
How does it work?
We are going on hiking routes, easy and circular with special natural beauty, which has been determined by us, with a specific Theme and purpose in natural landscapes of the Prefectures of Crete.
We gather at the meeting point and become a group! The topic of the meeting is presented and the Eco-Dromes begins. Along the way, we take breaks for our practice and experiential workshops which aim to connect us with the Natural Environment, our Natural Self, Others and the have a good time!
The Eco-Rules are for everyone and for all levels, as the selected routes are passable and easy to access.
It is also addressed to English-speaking citizens of other countries, as it is possible to translate it into English.
Each Eco-Dromes can be independent but also in continuity with the previous or subsequent ones in order to deepen the practice of Ecopsychology. For example, one may want to participate in one or more Eco-Dromes individually or follow the entire program as designed, with the aim of in-depth self-awareness and self-development.
