A guided botanic walk, where we will learn and sense the herbs, the plants, and the trees that grew in Sappho’s time.
The Greek myths that manifest each plant’s individual qualities will be narrated to you. You will get to know which plants Sappho might have grown in her garden, used as elixirs or in her kitchen.
We will end up in a Skala Eressos restaurant, where we will experiment and enjoy a light meal of ancient Greek aphrodisiac recipes.
There is a cost toward the meal, please sign-up at the Festival Office

About Dimitra Kamarinou
My initial goal was to delve into Greece’s spirit and nature. Therefore, I have studied Archaeology at Ioannina University, Greece and in Germany and I have hiked on the Greek mountains to explore the habitats of the wild flora. Conducting my PhD in Heritage Education (both environmental and cultural) I have developed the skills needed to develop experience-based programs. I have carried out a post-doctoral research (post doc) at the British School of Archaeology in Athens and in 2006 I was honoured with the prize of the Academy of Athens for my work in Archaeology.
My life path led me to realise the importance of the excavation into one’s self get into a 4 years study of Somatic Psychotherapy. Today, combining the knowledge from the three fields (Archaeology, Ecology and Somatic Psychotherapy) I lead experience-based workshops in archaeological sites and in the nature for international public with the aim of soul healing, embodied spirituality, women empowerment, connections and self-awareness within a group and communicating ideas from the ancient Greek culture that are meaningful today.
