About This Event

Join Master Yoga Teacher and Shaman, Elizabeth Flint (New York), on a mountain adventure in the remote villages of Northern Greece for a week of yoga, meditation, hiking and shamanic journey.

Venue Highlights

The mountain village of Papingo is truly magical. While all the other travelers are fighting their way through the crowds to get to the Islands, we will be spreading our wings and breathing in the spacious beauty of the mountains.

With three long hikes, yoga and meditation outdoors, dining al fresco and dips in the pristine waters, you will truly have a chance to commune with nature.


Retreat guests are accommodated in traditional Greek guesthouses in the tiny village of Micro Papingo. We offer either single rooms or twinshare. Each room has its own bath, fresh sheets and towels and a small writing desk.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
