Greece Yoga Retreat on the Island of Lesvos  

We had such an amazing time in 2022  and there were so many discoveries of the Heart and Soul within our community of attendees. We want to share this experience with new friends and invite back our old friends as well for the 2023 Retreat. We (Katrina and Michael) have delved deeper into the ancient teachings of the Heart and  Spirit,  journeying with new teachers, and going further into the wisdom and practices. We will be weaving in new understandings of the ancient teachings of Greece, Egypt, The Yogic Path, Alchemy, The Hermetic Teaching, The Philosopher’s Stone, Heart Resonance, Astrology, Bhakti (Art, Music & Creation), The Native American Wisdom Traditions, The Age of Aquarius, Quantum Physics and Lessons of Time/Space & Spirit.  

A New Dawn,  A New Age is an Immersive Retreat to learn and live from the Heart. Our central focus is always building community and creating connections within the group. We all feel so much more Open Hearted and Authentic when we are supported by our community. Our Greece Retreat will be a beautiful place to connect with fellow Seekers. 

There are new and evolving states of Consciousness awaking within the collective now. Heart Intelligence, Intuition, Inner Knowing, Ancient Remembering, Expansion of the Senses, and Collective Expansion are all in the field. It is part of a great cycle of time called The Procession of The Equinoxes and the Aquarian Age. The Eternal Mysteries of are coming back to life and awaking in ALL of us. We are all One and all connected to the Unified Filed of Spirit. We are creators of the Heart. Katrina and Michael will guide you to remember and reconnect to your Soul’s Purpose and Your Awakening Heart Intelligence. All of this while in the beauty and magic of the  Greek Island of Lesvos

We chose this special place- or rather it chose us– 5 years ago when our teacher lead a retreat there and we got married at the Temple of Delphi. This awoke in us a remembrance of the ancient times there and the Great Teachings that are reemerging within each one of us. The Milelja Retreat Center is such a special place for the land, the sea, the air, and particularly for the beautiful people who have been stewards of it for 30 years. Detlef and Gisa are wonderful Souls and cultivated such stunning place for retreat and community.

Note on How to Fly to Greece

While you can research flights to Mytilene, Greece using Flight Search Engines or a direct Airline Website, we recommend you book your tickets in stages for the best price. You can fly into any major airport in Europe such as Paris, Rome, London, Milan, or Athens. You may find a significant variation in costs dependent upon the destination country and city. Then book your tickets form that city- for example Paris- to Mytilene, Greece. Your search engine will route you to Athens first (you have to go there) and there will be a layover at the Athens international airport, then a connecting flight to Mytilene on a Greek Airline such as Aegean Airlines.

You will do this same type of booking for the return flight. This type of travel may include a night stay in Paris on the way there for example- but it will potentially save a lot of money. There are a few International European Airports that you can bypass Athens and go directly to Mytilene- for a listing of those Airports go HEREIf you need assistance, please contact us for guidance.

Milelja Retreat Center

The Milelja Retreat Center is located on the Greek Island of Lesvos in the eastern Aegean, a ten minutes walk to the sea and the small town of Molyvos. The Milelja Retreat center provides a calm and intimate atmosphere for Workshops and Retreats. With a sweeping view of Molyvos and the sea, our three acre property with its old trees and flower gardens, natural stone buildings harmoniously set into the landscape create a truly lush and unique character.

Molyvos, Greece

This green island in the eastern Aegean sea is off the beaten track of mass tourism. It has the feel of authentic Greek life. Covered with olive groves and vast pinewoods, legend has it that this is where music first came to man. Poetry, Song and dance still play an important role.

Lesvos is the third biggest island of Greece with many different landscapes – a micro cosmos of its own. Many traditional villages nestle in the mountains, one visit is not enough to see them all. Lesvos is simply amazing and has been a favorite destination for romantics, artists and birdwatchers.

The island is blessed with healing hot springs, a big variety of birds and wildflowers, award winning beaches, a petrified forest, medieval castles, fine museums, and last but not least is famous for it’s unique cuisine with traditional dishes and local fish.
