What is Reiki?

Reiki is a holistic Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is both powerful and gentle. In its long history of use, it has aided in healing virtually every known illness and injury including serious problems like multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and cancer as well as skin problems, cuts, bruises, broken bones, headaches, colds, flu, sore throat, sunburn, fatigue, insomnia, impotence, poor memory, lack of confidence, etc. It is always beneficial and works to improve the effectiveness of all other types of therapy.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance and has many benefits for both client and practitioner, including altered states of consciousness and spiritual experiences. If a client has a health condition and wants to be treated with Reiki, it is recommended that they do so under the supervision of an enlightened medical doctor or other health care professional. Reiki will improve the results of all medical treatments, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress, and help create optimism.

Benefits of Reiki?

Reiki has many benefits, both in a physical way and in a spiritual way. Once attuned, the flow of Reiki energy gives continuous healing to the individual, on every level. Self-healing on a regular basis increases the flow and the beneficial effects of the Reiki energy. Generally, people tend to feel much less stressed, more energized, and much more focused. Life seems clearer, and life's purpose is more apparent. Reiki is a life-changing event, the start of a spiritual journey of self-discovery and enlightenment. Reiki gives the gift of attaining happiness.

Shatkarmas or Satkriyas

Shatkarmas or Satkriyas are ancient Vedic techniques for cleansing and detoxing not only the physical but also the emotional and mental body. It consists of the following six techniques: neti, dhauti, basti, nauli, kapalbhati, and trataka. All the above will be analyzed for you and you will practice or apply the techniques which are most suitable to the modern world.


Knowing the vital force that keeps the existence maintains life and expands it. How the flow of energy is crucial for the well-being of every person.


Stilling and balancing the body in certain positions permits the consciousness to enter fields very subtle, where lives the essence of existence. Far beyond "hand gesture mudras" publicly known. Their teachings have been kept secret for thousands of years.


Locking and holding in specific ways the body allows unblocking of the flow of energy restores vitality and builds up an accumulation of energy.

The course will take place in Mint Retreat Suites, which is located in Kallandra, Chalkidiki, up north Greece, almost 90 kilometers from Salonika (Thessaloniki). This beautiful place of the Kassandra peninsula witnesses history from antiquity. The city of Mendi was founded in the eighth century BC. It got its name from the Minthi plant, a species of mint that is still abundant in the area.

The city experienced great prosperity and had its own currency, while it was also known for its famous wine, the Mendai wine. At its port, Poseidi, on the beautiful cape, there is the famous Temple of Poseidon that overlooks Mount Olympus. The ancient Greeks had placed there side by side, the two Gods, Zeus, and Poseidon.
