A Fun Filled Family Holiday For All Ages
Joan Wilmot and Robin Shohet, 25 July – 1 August, €400, (Children age 8 – 12, €200, age 4 – 7, €100) (Kissos Campus)
The Family holiday week is a place for families any kind of family, nuclear family, extended family, be they grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins as well as husbands and wives, single parent families, blended families, step parents step children, adopted children neighbours, friends…
Each family group will be held in a family constellation and appreciative inquiry framework and have the opportunity to cook together and garden supported by the community we create together.
Appreciative inquiry and family constellations (Lots of stuff about them on the Internet) are ways of looking. They will be a major part of our lens and container for the week. Appreciative Inquiry (AI) says we can either look at our families and ourselves ‘as problems to be solved’ or ‘as mysteries to be embraced’. Which makes you smile? We will start the week with asking each family member what works in your family; share a ‘sparkling’ moment from your time together.
The days will include walking in the mountains and bathing in the waterfalls, exploring the beautiful Pelion peninsula and going down to the wonderful beaches of Damouchari, Papa Nero and Plata. There will be options for improvisation drama, poetry, music and an introduction to the Greek language and whatever wishes, interests and talents people bring with them. We meet on the first morning to create the week together.
Come for a creative, nourishing, inspiring and fun family holiday !
What Will we Do
Each group is different and the activities can change depending on the ages of the children and the different needs of the parents and children, therefore affording us a flexible programme. Our community rhythm helps everyone to feel relaxed.
There are the times for community clean-up, cooking and gardening together. There are times at the beach and there is time to simply be.
It is our intention to design the activities of the week with your input so we can be flexible and responsive to the needs of the group. So although there is some structure and routine, there is also lots of room to create the kind of holiday that you want and need for you and your family!
