Jun 17 2017 - Jun 24 2017

- £425
Facilitated by Hilly Spenceley
Tuition week 17 – 24 June.
With option to extend your holiday period over a full two weeks 14 – 28 June.
Hilly invites you for a holiday of tantra, relaxation, fun and sun in south west Crete.
Hilly ran tantra workshops at Azogires for seven consecutive years in the 1990’s, she is delighted to return to this strong and spectacular landscape in recent times.
During the tuition week we are proposing to include six days offering some facilitated time in the group space, to include tantric structures, meditations or chanting. On most days these will be run in the mornings or evenings with free time in the afternoon, to enjoy the lovely local beaches, shops and restaurants of Paleochora. One full day will focus on a ritual at the ruin of the temple of the Snake Goddess, at Lissos. This will involve boat trips, a picnic lunch, and the opportunity to see more of the amazing local scenery. Some moderate walking. There will also a night time ritual in Azogires, taking us on a journey inside the mountain by candle light, where we meet the Great Mother in the cave of the 99 Holy Fathers.We have booked the retreat centre at Azogires for two weeks so you are invited to extend your stay to enjoy some further holiday time.

About the resort:

Azogires is a small unspoilt village in the mountains overlooking the coastal town of Paleochora.  The retreat centre has a group space, ensuite twin rooms with balconies, shared kitchen and outside dining area with stunning views. Paleochora, with it’s lovely shops, restaurants and beautiful beaches (one is nudist) is about ten minutes by car, with occasional public transport also available.


We will arrange accommodation for each participant once you have made your booking. You will need to organise your own flight, car hire and insurance, and pay for accommodation on arrival.

Feedback from Tantra in Crete:

“I thought the accommodation was perfect for what we wanted to do..enough privacy and close enough to the beach. I’m trying to think if id have wanted anything else or done anything different..but i can’t. Your idea of using our environment to learn in was very powerful and more time in the workshop space would have meant less time outside and I really enjoyed being in my body and outdoors – whether walking the gorge or on boats.”

“As always, the feeling of inclusiveness in the group – everyone was welcomed to join in with what was going on, for example meeting up at mealtimes, spending afternoons at the beach. That there were suggestions available for things to do without them being “compulsory”. Being able to spend time around Hilly and Sue in a more relaxed context was lovely! The sense of support and listening and caring within the group when people had difficulties.”

“I loved the tantra holiday and can’t think of anything that would have made it better. Waterfall, cave and Lissos were deep experiences that I will never forget. We all got on so well together that it was like belonging to a family.”
