VOLUNTEERS FOR 2018 SEASON
Life change happened when I turned 30: after working as an interior designer in Paris for a while, I felt a call for adventures and challenges. My path brought me to Kalikalos 4 years ago and introduced me to community building. The combination of holistic workshops fitted my interest as I am a Watsu/Wata student (therapy in hot water) and Chakradance (intuitive healing movement). Moreover, the unspoilt nature of Pelion fulfilled my desire of hiking and I can offer to guide you on the famous "kalderimis".

Kate had no idea that she was interested in living in community. She was just following a kind of instinct when she applied to volunteer at Alexandros a few years ago. What she found was an amazing place that supports finding and following that internal voice. She lives in Normandy, France and spends a lot of time with her many gurus— all horses— under the guise of training them.
