VEGETARIAN COOKING HOLIDAY
& COOKING ARTICLE
annual holidays are normally a short-lived relaxation whereas
the benefits of holistic holidays last long after the suntan
Life is busy - fast paced, stressful and generally just a
lot crazier than it used to be. Stress has negative effects
on our bodies and minds and can ruin our health unless we
take occasional breaks from it.
The latest trend in holidays is holistic - holidays where
the focus is on the whole, body, mind and spirit.
It is the soul that enlivens all parts of our lives. When
we come home to the inner peace of our soul, we
feel inspired and fulfilled in a way that nothing else can
touch. We have more energy, enthusiasm and love to share.
The relaxed atmosphere and safe space which is created by
the retreat leaders at Kalikalos, is a perfect opportunity
to really re-examine your motivations, goals, and beliefs
in life. It is a great environment to become re-acquainted
with your self.
Broadening your horizons sounds like an old cliché
but has proven to be true. An opportunity to learn something
new in a foreign place such as different culinary experiences
can contribute to your creativity.
During the Vegetarian Cookery week at Kalikalos, between
cooking and lingering over long meals, theres plenty
of time for yourself, to explore and just unwind. Non cooking
companions will have plenty to do while you cook. From the
earthy character of rural Mt.Pelion to the bliss of the Aegean
beaches, there is something to suit all tastes. You are not
required to be an expert cook, the course is for enthusiasts
and the atmosphere is relaxed, educational and fun.
You just lean into your playful side, have a good time and
take home many happy memories.
holidays leave you feeling refreshed and in balance!
philosophy is simple - great cooking in a great place. Enjoy!
