Reconnecting with our self

throught ancient Greek Wisdom

Chiron Retreats is an endeavor to reunite the human soul with the Sacred Mysteries of Life, the Inner Self and the Cosmic Order. It’s a transformational experience based on Greek Ancient Wisdom to support awareness in everyday life.

“Returning to Greece is our psychological response to a threatening collapse … Our culture has the tendency to look to Greece, when it refers to the glory of the past, perfection, grace and spiritual clarity, as well as when it seeks its own “beginnings,” since Greece is the cradle of our civilization. Our goal is to turn to Greece, looking for psychological insight, to understand what this “Greece” has to offer that is so attracted to the soul and what it is exactly that the soul finds in Greece.”

(James Hillman, Initiator of Archetypal Psychology)

Our retreats promise you an unprecedented experience of reaching a state of natural harmony with your Self. Something already imprinted within each one of us, yet sometimes neglected.

The Golden Verses. A manual on Well-Being by Pythagoras.

«The awareness that we have a magnificent and superior character disorganizes us more than the awareness that we are petty and unworthy. Naturally, we are both. However, we usually do not discover these two aspects at the same time. Gold is associated with the higher calling… Ignoring our golden part is equally destructive to ignoring the dark side of our soul».

(R. A. Johnson)

Unlocking the treasury of the ancient Greeks, Chiron Therapy brings back a long forgotten tool, deeply engraved both in the Greek soul and the collective soul, necessary for the extraction of the highly valued golden aspect of ourselves: the daily self-examination, as displayed in the Golden Verses of Pythagoras – the “purified extract” of Pythagorean philosophy. Pythagoras’ Golden Verses are characterized as “golden” because they reveal to us how to transform the “heavy”, dark and unrefined parts of our Self, the lead of our soul, into gold, i.e. into refined and noble qualities – the “Divine Virtues”.

CHIRON THERAPY is a modern psychotherapeutic approach based on the activation of three important therapeutic tools of the ancient Greek thought: a) Philosophy b) Language Etymology c) Myths/Symbols/Archetypes It’s aim is the ultimate therapy, “KNOW THYSELF”, which leads the individual to reconnect with the “Virtuous Intelligence” that resides within him / her. It is rather an attitude or stance to life as it reminds us how to honor and celebrate “Living” (ΖΗΝ) by moving to the sacred art of “Well-Being” (ΕΥ ΖΗΝ).
