The Invitation

Halcyon Days are mythical days of beautiful, calm weather amongst winter storms. Born of the story of the goddess Alcyone, who threw herself into the sea in despair at the death of her beloved husband Ceyx. Recognising her devotion the gods re-united the pair as sea kingfishers. Alcyone’s father, the God of the winds, calmed the stormy, mid-winter seas for two weeks every year to allow his daughter to raise her young.

Spring and summer drive us to growth, output and action, sow the seeds, enjoy the sun, grasp every moment and make it count. Autumn comes, a shift towards longer nights and the tilt towards darkness. This slower time offers a different opportunity in the reckoning and growth of self. A time to dive, to allow the softly or stormily growing dark to reveal depths hidden by summer’s bright activity.

Cooler and changing weather invite us to step into quiet spaces and a more reflective and inward way of being. The back to school energy of this time balances retreat, there is time yet for action to blossom, to complete on intentions established through the year.

Corfu, the home of our Halcyon Days Retreat, allows us to move into the autumn cycle in a last warm embrace of still-summer temperatures, the land and the sea holding the heat of months of sunshine. In this beautiful environment there remains time for wandering, curiosity, exploration and adventure.

But Halcyon Days is not just about warm sun. It is a retreat that is dedicated to the richness of life, richness that comes from a deeper place than superficial pleasure. And so this retreat comes with a particular invitation.

Come to Corfu, enjoy this wonderful island, sunshine, beaches, olive groves and ancient history. Come to Corfu and take a deep dive to gather in new insights from the quieter, darker and forgotten spaces within you. Use the time of this season to explore beneath the surface of who you think you are to discover the hidden pearls within that are calling to be brought into life to influence and guide your next steps.

Halcyon Days exists to facilitate the transition from myth to reality.

  • “In every moment there exists an infinity of wisdom and awareness. In every being there are hidden depths and deep desires to bring to life. The moments must be invited to deliver their gold. The being must be honoured and explored to reveal its layers”

    Thea Allison, Intuitive Leadership Coach

  • "Imagination is the paintbrush of the soul"

    Anne K. Scott, Imagination Technologist

You Will Take Away

However fully we work on ourselves we always hold secrets within. Skills, ambitions, abilities and desires tucked safely out of sight and mind so as not to disturb our perception of what is possible.

The space that is created by Halcyon Days, our beautiful villa, the mythical island, our gentle hosts and us, your facilitators, allows a deep exploration to restore that which has been carefully and deeply hidden. Intuition will reveal it to you.

We will support you to embody and anchor your desires in new practices and ways of being. This conviction and embodied action will restore the richness of your life to you and to the world.

You will take away:

A deeper relationship with, and confidence in, your own wisdom and inner knowing

Clarity on your next area of focus to live a fully-expressed life

A personal blueprint to progress your plans

Easy to use tools to keep you on track

A fun, relaxing and restorative holiday

The Programme

The early morning is yours; perhaps a meditation or morning walk with the sunrise, a dip in the ocean or a luxurious lie-in. At 8am we recommend a gentle yoga session. Whether you are new to yoga or a yoga ninja, the session is designed to ease you into flow for the day.

After breakfast we will gather for shared learning and creative exploration sessions facilitated by your leaders Thea and Anne. The sessions will guide you through an arc of discovery, of letting go and re-alignment. Naturally and with ease you will inhabit the essence and energy of what really matters to you. We will plug you into your imagination so you can breathe life into your dreams and creations.

The afternoons are spacious; there is a shuttle to the beach and local restaurants. Walk through the olive groves or stay in the dozy silence of the B&B to dream in a hammock, journal, write, paint, rest or book the luxury of a massage in your room.

As the sun goes down and before supper we will reconnect to share and reflect on our learnings. We can continue the evening enjoying each other’s company or you may choose time on your own.

You will be welcomed at our Villa with a delicious local meal. During the week we will have a sunset drink & dinner at a beautiful panoramic location on the cliffs. On other evenings we can enjoy the lively beach-front restaurants at Arillas, Agios Stefanos and Agios Georgios.

You will embody what is coming to life in your imagination in ways that are true for you; campfires, sound baths, skinny-dipping under the stars, natural mud baths, contemplating the sunset from the beach. There are many ways to bring what you love home to thrive in you and birth into reality.

The myth and magic of Corfu are the backdrop for a wonderful combination of fun, exploration and revelation.

  • “And invisibly the air (cool as the breath from the heart of a melon) pours over the window sills and mingles with the scent of the exhausted lamps.”

    Lawrence Durrell, Prospero’s Cell

  • “Anything like the splendour of olive-groves and orange-gardens, the blue of the sky, the violet of the mountain, rising from peacock-wing-hued sea and tipped with lines of silver snow, can hardly be imagined [...]”.

    Edward Lear, Landscape Painter, Nonsense Poet

The magic of possibilities that unfold in this mythical land.

  • Halcyon Days enabled me to dive into the deeper aspects of my heart and soul. Compassionately and intuitively led by Thea and Anne. The astounding beauty of the Corfu landscape assisted in the transformative process of enhancing personal awareness and expansion into the greater and long hidden aspects of my self. I recommend this retreat highly.

    Shelley R Derby, UK

  • Halcyon Days is a magical retreat - like no other I’ve attended. The warmth, love and guidance received from Thea and Anne was a joy to behold. They created a safe space to share their wisdom and learnings, and held us all tightly. Truly transformational and inspirational.

    Sally K. - London, UK

  • Anne and Thea were incredible hosts for Halcyon Days. They took me on a deep journey, helped me to uncover old insights in a new and practical way, were knowledgeable, funny, kind and supportive. I would recommend Halcyon Days to anybody looking to learn more about themselves, and create life changes in an intuitive and holistic way. I can't recommend them highly enough, if you are on the fence about whether to come then I say just do it!

    S. J. H - Hampton, UK

  • Halcyon Days is a rich experience which allows one to dive into the deep end of the adventure of this "one wild and precious life" with guidance and support. (Mary Oliver quote). Anne and Thea are a magnificence facilitators - they sit in the same circle, with all their questions and doubts, as the group seeking knowledge. The nature of the Halcyon Days retreat is one of co creation between the unique group of people who attend - no one retreat has a set formula and every retreat is a unique creation.

    Susie S. - Adelaide, Australia

  • Halcyon days, magical ways...an outstanding, transformation and restorative retreat - highly recommended!

    Siobhan H - Ireland

  • Halcyon Days was a blessing for me: the deep, powerful combination of imaginative processes, wonderful warmth and the wild nature of Corfu is a perfect recipe for a real retreat. Anne and Thea, together with hosts Sacha and Ben, have created something very magical.

    Thurstan C - Cornwall, UK

  • Learning to work with my intuition and to follow my heart (and not my head) are exciting challenges for me. The retreat gave me some powerful insights and a "taste“ of what is possible with this way of living and creating. Exciting!
