Interspecies Communication
and Nature Reverence Retreat

A 5-day Transformative Journey
Dedicated to Nature and Interspecies Connection

Interspecies Communication
and Nature Reverence Retreat

MAY 22 – 26, 2024

The Time is now !

There has never been a greater and more critical time to walk upon our Mother Earth !
This is an opportunity for humanity to awaken to a deeper sense of interconnectedness with all living beings and the planet itself.

Many spiritual traditions teach that everything in the universe is interconnected and that our actions have consequences not just for ourselves but for the entire web of life. Therefore, it is our collective responsibility to take care of the Earth and all her inhabitants.

…We are the ones we’ve been waiting for !
~ Hopi Elders’ Prophecy, June 8, 2000.

If you feel

  • Disconnected from your true Self and Nature
  • Overwhelmed by the daily stresses of your life
  • Blockages in achieving your higher purpose
  • The need to deepen your relationship with animals and all of Nature…

This Initiatory Retreat is for you !

  • Learn to communicate with animals, plants, minerals, elements and elementals.
  • Commune with the ancient ones and seek their guidance and healing.
  • Reactivate your inner compass and step into your purpose.
  • Expand your heart and co-create a new future for yourself, all species and all of Nature.
The following itinerary is not set in stone, and may change depending on the weather, the people and most important of all, the animals.

Meet Eleni

Eleni’s work through Interspecies Peace Foundation is focused on reconciling and restoring human and non-human relations. For over two decades, she has been dedicated to deepening her Interspecies Communication practice and to continue to offer the world the foundations for Interspecies Peace. She envisions and works towards a world free of geographical, cultural, social, or ecological barriers; a world free of fences and borders.

Meet Nilufer

Nilufer and her family arrived twenty years ago on the island. They came upon this hidden and abandoned paradise in the middle of Tinos. Carefully and slowly, they have restored the land, listening to and co-creating with all the elements of nature there: the linden tree, the olive grove, the orange orchard, the herbs and water sources. In time they planted a vineyard. This adventure still continues, and they look forward to see how it will evolve in time.

Tentative Itinerary

Our days will start with a meditation and/or connection exercises. Eleni will offer teachings and experiences from her shamanic and interspecies communication training and her travels into the wilderness.

We will have a delicious healthy brunch, after which there will be personal time for journaling, integrating, hiking, swimming…

The afternoons will be filled with animal and nature related activities, to practice what we learn and to get back to our roots and inner self.

Our days will end with sharing around the dinner table.

Day 1. Opening Circle

You will be welcomed by our wonderful hosts, and you will gently settle into your cottages. Take your time to explore your surroundings, switch off your mind and devices and start emerging into the rhythms of the Nature that embraces you.
We will gather at 3:30 in the afternoon to open our circle.

Day 2. Animal Communication​

Intuitive Interspecies Communication is about connecting with the energy and consciousness of animals and other species on a deep level and recognizing the interconnectivity and sacredness of all living beings. It can be a powerful spiritual practice that allows us to connect with animals, deepen our understanding of the natural world, and cultivate qualities that are essential for personal growth and spiritual development.

Day 3. Reverance

As your journey progresses into the depths of your ancestral intuitive abilities, you will remember the magic of communicating with all of life… all of creation; the stone people, the tree people, minerals, plants, even the elements and elementals!
The day is filled with Appreciation, Gratitude, Awe and REVERENCE!

Day 4. Communicating with the Element of Water and the Sea Beings

Weather permitting, we will have the opportunity to hire a boat and visit the places where the seals and/or the dolphins may grace us with their presence. Feeling reverence and gratitude for our reawakened intuition and expanded hearts, we celebrate the union with our relatives in the sea. We practice silence and without any expectations we make our loving presence known to those who live in the waters.
It is up to them to show themselves. And up to us to receive their messages and guidance regardless…

Alternative option: A pilgrimage to connect with our ancestors.
Our pilgrimage will involve visiting ancestral lands, sacred sites, or places of historical or cultural significance. It may also involve rituals, ceremonies, or practices that intuitively connect us with our ancestors and their traditions, such as meditation, prayer, or offerings.

The purpose of a pilgrimage with our ancestors is to deepen our connection with our lineage and heritage, and to gain a deeper understanding of our identity and purpose in the world. It is also a way to heal ancestral wounds and traumas that may have been passed down through generations, and to cultivate a sense of gratitude and reverence for our ancestors and their contributions to our lives.

Day 5. Closing circle

Our closing circle marks the end of our intuitive retreat and the start of a new community. We come together to reflect on the experiences and insights gained during the retreat, to express gratitude and appreciation for one another, and to offer support and encouragement for continuing our service to animals, Nature and all our relations.
