Wild Souls Greece: The Mythos and Magic of Hellas @ Atherns, Greece
May 19 @ 5:00 pm – May 28 @ 11:00 am

wilds souls greece

May 19-28th 2019

Walk gently in the footsteps of the Gods and Goddesses in the very place that created the term ‘mythos”.

Let go and surrender to the magic of Hellas…

Hellas, the ancient term for Greece, is a place of unparalleled archaeological and mythic importance. Zeus and Hera, Artemis and Apollo, Athena and her owl, Dionysus and the Muses, Poseidon and his sparkling oceans, Hades and Persephone in their underworld, Gaia and her snowy mountains: here, all come alive in a tapestry of magic, nature and mythos.

As with all Wild Souls Retreats, you won’t be inactive, instead, like the ancient pilgrims, you will renewed be journeying through the ancient city of Athens, to swim in the sea right by Poseidon’s own temple, to the sacred heart of the ancient world Delphi, and onto the very home of the Gods and Goddesses, Mt. Olympus. We will relax, learn, connect, and perform ritual in some of the most powerful sacred sites in the ancient and modern world.

We start our sun-soaked journey in the Hellenistic capital of Athens, where we start spectacularly with a walk, ritual and visit to the world famous Acropolis. We enjoy expert insights from an archaeologist and expert on culture. Then our adventure starts proper- the next day we swim with Poseidon and receive blessings in his temple. In days to come, we travel inland into the sacred highlands to Delphi and learn about the Pythia and her oracle and perform rituals dedicated to Artemis and her twin Apollo on their actual temple site. The home of the Gods and Goddesses, Mt.Olympus, receives us next and we hike along the wild gorge paths in one of the most spectacular places in the whole of Hellas.

And all the while we experience the food and hospitality Greece is famous for. All your breakfast, lunch and dinners are included and deluxe accommodation in which to rest your head.

If you have ever wanted to experience the real magic of ancient Greece, here is your opportunity.

What’s included in your Wild Souls Greece experience?

– 10 day/ 9 night programme.

– All Deluxe Accommodation:

3 nights accommodation in the elegant The Margi in the Athenian Riviera, Vouliagmeni, Athens.

Home

2 nights accommodation at the Amalia Delphi.

– Your Meals: Nourishing meals from our first evening in Athens through to our last breakfast in Athens. Our meals will be Greek style mostly, fresh local food, and please discuss any dietary requirements with us.

– Our activities and adventures:
As always on a Wild Souls Retreat, we immerse ourselves with the natural environment and the people who live there. As we will be travelling within Hellas to both urban and remote areas, we have the services of experts and guides who will assist us to get the most out of our visit.

Here is an outline of some of our adventures…

– We start with an early morning visit to the Acropolis which towers high above Athens city. We will do ritual here and set the intentions for our journey on the very hill that has held ceremony for countless millennia.

We will then visit the stunning new Acropolis museum. The museum displays some of the most impressive and precious ancient Greek artifacts and sacred art. A qualified archeologist guide who has taken part in major Greek excavations will accompany us.

– As we see more of the city, we will learn about the evolution of the theatre and dramatic arts from a specialist speaker from the Greek National Theatre.

-We will travel to Sounio to visit the Temple of Poseidon and swim at and do ritual at the beach honouring the God of the Sea, earthquakes, prosperity and flow.

-Travel to the Omphalos (navel) of the World, the centre of the ancient Universe, Delphi. We will visit the Museum and spend two days at this incredible area. Here you will visit the home of the famous Delphic Oracle who gave insights to King Croesus and Alexander the Great.

You will walk the ancient path from the Cave of Panas (Corycian Cave) up to Delphi itself. Perhaps the most famous place of power in the whole of Greece, the profound energies of Mt. Parnassus can be experienced with love and devotion.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corycian_Cave
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delphi

Parnassus is home to the God Dionysus and the Muses so we will ensure we have some fun in the evening!

– Perform Artemistic ritual with Stacey in the actual Temple of Artemis and make offerings to her brother Apollo, the God of Light and Music, in his home in Delphi.

– Visit and explore the home of the Gods, at the foot of Mt Olympus. We will travel to the village of Litchoro, on the east coast of Hellas, to see where Zeus and the Olympians make their home. For two days we will stay amongst the mountains and the deities. We will visit the Dion Archaeological site as well as pay our respects at the large Temple of Zeus. There are also sacred temples to Demeter, Isis and the Greek God of Medicine Asclepius.

– Experience the beautiful yet slightly challenging Enippeas Gorge Walk on the site of Mt. Olympus the way the ancients did, by foot, leaving small offerings and singing to the Gods!

-You’ll honour the Gods and Goddesses at a dawn ceremony over the Aegean Sea and visit the archaeological site of Aigai, the first capital of the Kingdom of Macedonia. Here we see the royal tombs of Alexander the Greats father Phillip II, who paved the way for the incredible expansion of the whole of the Hellenistic world.

– Our last afternoon and evening will be spent back in Athens and our farewell dinner will have a view of the shining Acropolis. Full circle!

– All transport is included during the retreat, including chartered private bus.

– And of course, a mythos-rich spiritual programme with Stacey. This retreat will involve ceremony and rituals on the sacred sites of the Gods and Goddesses. Stacey will also be teaching the traditional way, “in situ” (within the places) and so you will be learning about the mythos, concepts and doing the transformational workings within the actual places that have harboured this energy for literally thousands of years.

Nature, as always will be your teacher too, and will work it’s magic to bring you back to your most authentic self. The sea, the sky, the earth, the fire of the sun and the air of mountains will transform you.

This retreat is designed to quickly clear away the everyday, inspire your spirit, connect you with your own continuing mythos, spark your innate creativity and to bring new flow and vitality to transform yourself.

With this retreat, you will be doing quite a bit of ritual and energy work, and whilst this is optional and you need no experience, you should be open to the workings and the earth-honouring learning to get the most out of the retreat.

.
***Remember, this is your retreat- all activities are optional, but travelling progressively is not optional.***

What’s not included:

– Beverages and alcoholic drinks
– Your return flights from Australia (or where ever home is!)
– Transport from the airport to the meeting place in Athens, the Hotel Margi, and your transfers back to the airport on the last morning.
– Any activities on your free days or afternoons.
– Tips and items of a personal nature.
– Your Travel Insurance (compulsory for a journey of this type)

As always, you will be supplied with an extensive packing list and further details well ahead of time and of course the useful and beautiful gifts you have come to expect.

The Priestess Path 2020 @ Via Zoom
Jan 20 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
There comes a time when we are ready to become who we have always wanted to be.

There comes a time to be still, to centre ourselves and feel out what we have really have inside of us.

There comes a time to build our resilience, our strength, our confidence as well as our capacity for joy, creativity and action.

There comes a time when we are ready to reject our reliance on the external for our pleasures and self worth, for this is such false power.

There comes a time when we are ready to develop real power.

That time is now.

We are in a time on this planet where we need more authentic and kindly powerful people who are ready to step up and model what living a life of clear intent is without being distracted by the external of gossip, drama and manipulation.

I felt the time has come for me to offer more advanced work based partially on  traditional priestess teachings for those who feel they are ready and can benefit from it.

The Priestess Path is a year-long teaching that will weave and work with the eight major festivals of the Wheel of the Year as an energetic guide.

The principals of stillness, the raising, holding and sharing of power, and the power keys of self knowledge, self love, self trust, self care and leadership (and more) will all be examined and taught through the filter of ‘the Priestess’.

The teaching will be 8 X 2 hour LIVE Zoom sessions, recorded skills videos, and you will be set with substantial personal work in between, including a ‘major project’.

There will be a bonus session, face to face, in Sydney in January 2021 for those who wish to undertake practical skills in person.

Side effects of completing The Priestess Path:
You can expect to be transformed by this pathway if you choose to be dedicated to the work.

You can expect a sense of capability, sureness, flowfulness, courage, discipline and confident expansion.

Things that used to bother you just will not be on your radar any more.

You’ll be able to handle difficult situations with greater ease and with a solutions based attitude.

You’ll be less fearful about making mistakes and you’ll understand that failure is  simply a step in success.

You won’t be so scared.

You’ll see and break old patterns that stopped you being powerful.

You might just let go of who you were and be who you are.

This is advanced work and so there is a level of knowledge and capability I am assuming. It is open to those who have successfully completed the 12 Goddesses and/or the 12 Gods Mentorships and additionally, to gain entry, you will have to complete an application which I will assess. Invitations will be extended after this.

I expect this to be a small but solid group.

Investment is $720. (gst inclusive)

Please speak to Richard in regards to payment, but in the first instance contact Richard for more information and for the application details.

First night 20th January 2020

The 12 Goddesses- A Year of Goddess Mentorship 2020 @ Via ZOOM on line
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

For a long time now, I have wanted to undertake some deeper work with groups around the transformative power of the ancient goddesses, somewhat akin to the temple programmes that I have experienced. 2018 was our first intake and frankly, I think it is some of the most powerful workings I have ever facilitated. I have enjoyed working with the participants so much individually and as a group and yes, absolutely, I was gratified to see so much real, beneficial change happening over time.

It is my firm belief that working like this, with a small group and a guiding mentor and the Goddesses themselves intensively on a regular basis, can be positively life changing. Working with different streams of Goddess energy over time, in this case, a full year, means that real, measurable growth and true change can not only be observed, but enjoyed!

How it works:

Each month we work with a Goddess who will guide us. We will look at the mythos of this Goddess and how this Goddesses’ energy and power is a catalyst for her and the lives of others, in both shadow and light.

We use these lessons as trigger points for gentle but profound change and empowerment in our own lives, building one month to the next, for a whole year.

Half way through the year in July, you get a personal one-on-one session with Stacey to ensure you are on track with your intentions and pathway.

Go light, go deep, change in beauty, and transform with serious and loving guidance.

Who is this for?

Anyone who wants to feel more on-purpose, more relaxed, happier in their own skin and more in love with the life they are growing.

Anyone who wants regular support amongst a like-minded group and a mentor who will be fiercely dedicated to your growth through the power of the Goddess pathway.

Anyone who feels they would like to bust through some tightly held patterns or some old habits that have been tough to break previously.

Anyone who is curious about the power of the Feminine Divine or is already working with Goddesses and wants to go deeper into their practice in a practical way.

What’s included:

• Twelve (one per month) two hour live and interactive group sessions via the internet wherever you are. (These are recorded for your convenience).
* Personal 30 minute one-on-one phone consult with Stacey in July.
• Email support from Stacey for your homework undertaken in between sessions.
• Oracle Deck
• Notes, meditations, and assignments.
• Other magical supplies.

Total investment for 12 months is: $620

Quarterly payment plan is available for: $180 per quarter.

Please talk to Richard Martin about your options by emailing bookings@themodernwitch.com or by calling 0400345113.

Numbers will be strictly limited and first night is Tuesday, January 28, 7pm-9pm.

Dates: Jan 28, Feb 25, March 31, April 28, May 26, June 23, July 28, August 25th, Sept 29th,Oct 27, Nov 24th, Dec 22th.

Please note: Sessions will be recorded for those who might miss the session. You can conveniently watch these whenever you like.

The 12 Gods- A Year of Mentorship with the Gods 2020 @ Via ZOOM on line
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Last year was our first intake of ‘The 12 Gods” and it was transformational.

We are in a time where we are reforming, renegotiating and reforming our relationship with the energy of the Masculine. The “MeToo” movement for example, has changed for many how they think about and expect their relationships to be with the Masculine energy and perhaps, we have forgotten or are looking for guidance towards, what a truly positive an empowering connection with the Masculine looks and feels like in all areas of our lives. Whether you identify as female or male, this work has lasting benefit in your every day life.

It is my belief that working like this, with a small group and a guiding mentor and the Gods themselves intensively on a regular basis, can be positively life changing. Working with different streams of positive Masculine Divine energy over time, in this case, a full year, means that real, measurable growth and true change can not only be observed, but enjoyed!

How it works:

Each month we work with a God who will guide us. We will look at the mythos of this God and how this God’s energy and power is a catalyst for Him and the lives of others, in both shadow and light.

We use these lessons as trigger points for gentle but profound change and empowerment in our own lives, building one month to the next, for a whole year. Momentum really is magic here!

You’ll experience rituals, workings and learn from the group itself.

Half way through the year in July, you get a personal one-on-one session with Stacey via phone from wherever you are to ensure you are on track with your intentions and pathway.

Go light, go deep, change in grace and purpose, and transform with focussed, no nonsence, nourishing and loving guidance.

Who is this for?

Anyone who wants to feel more on-purpose, more relaxed, happier in their own skin and more in love with the life they are growing.

Anyone who wants regular support amongst a like-minded group and a mentor who will be fiercely dedicated to your growth through the power of the ancient pathways of the Gods.

Anyone who feels they need to or want to heal their relationship with the Masculine.

Anyone who feels they would like to bust through some tightly held patterns and old beliefs.

Anyone who is curious about the power of the Masculine Divine or is already working with Goddesses and Gods and wants to go deeper into their practice in a practical way.

What’s included:

• Twelve (one per month) two hour live and interactive group sessions via the internet wherever you are. (The easy to use Zoom platform allows us to record the sessions for your convenience too.)
* Personal one-on-one 30 minute phone consultation with Stacey
• Email support from Stacey for your homework undertaken in between sessions
• “Gods and Titans” Oracle Deck
