What you'll do

I'll meet you at the reception and we'll take a leisurely drive along the riviera, to the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, one of the most breathtaking places you'll ever visit. The drive is about 45 minutes. The transport is NOT included and must be arranged by you. We will walk the Temple grounds, and I will share with you my knowledge about Greek philosophers, we will talk about philosophy, history & mythology. We will then have lunch at a nearby restaurant of your choice (there are several - cost of the meal is not included). After coffee, we'll return to your resort. You can expect to: - ENJOY a short introduction on the Greek philosophers & their teachings. - EXPLORE the Temple & the surrounding area while we discuss philosophy and history. - EXPRESS share and discuss your thoughts & ideas in a relaxed setting. - EXPAND your mind and soul to new ways of thinking & being. As Socrates taught "An un-meditated life, is not worth living."
