What to bring for Summer of Eros?

The general advice is to bring anything that you feel would enrich your experience and make your time at the retreat doing this work more comfortable. Consider the weather, and your personal needs and desires. You are asked to bring your own towels and bedding, if you prefer not to bring all that we have towels and beddings on the venue for 1 euro each per item (for laundry).

Here are some essentials to bring:
•2 TOWELS - one for washing and one large, whole-body size, for use during massages
•2 SINGLE BED SHEETS – one to protect the mattress from oil during massage rituals and one to sleep on
•SUMMER BLANKET or SLEEPING BAG (if for some reason you cannot bring one, please let me know as they have to be booked at the venue)
•TOILETRIES (only biodegradable shampoo, soap, etc - please avoid colognes, perfumes or scented personal care products)
•WATER BOTTLE (reusable) and/or closed cup for hot drinks
•LOOSE-fitting, comfortable shorts/trousers/dresses/scarves
•ANY MEDICATION, herbs, food supplement that you may need or enjoy having
•SHOES - comfortable and sturdy for walking through the mountains

Here are some other recommendations and suggestions:
•SACRED/ SYMBOLIC OBJECT - representing your journey (for the shared altar)
•NATURAL MASSAGE OIL (e.g. virgin coconut oil is suitable)
•SARONG/robe/wrap for rituals
•COMFORTABLE CLOTHING - lightweight, loose-fitting
•JOURNAL/notebook & writing utensils
•SUNHAT and SUNGLASSES (if you like them)
•SUN PROTECTION (please choose eco / organic options)
•MOSQUITO REPELLENT (if you are sensitive)
•YOGA MAT (if you like to practice)
•12v laptop charger (car charger) if you wish to use your laptop or any other electronic devise – there are USB charging stations for phones
