“Why you should go to Greece for Erasmus“

Impressions of the Slovak volunteers, that stayed at the Hostel Elisson during their EVS Project in September 2019:

We left Slovakia as a group of four 17-18 years old unfledged teenagers. After we left the gates of the airport in Athens, we still did not realize the distance between us and everything back home. At this point there was no turning back, just the vast and beautiful sunny Greece in September and our confused faces trying to read departures of trains in Greek.

EXCURSION on: Nonviolent Communication (NVC) & Nonviolent Physiotherapy (NVB)


Μια εκδρομή με επίκεντρο τον άνθρωπο και την επικοινωνία του με το σώμα, τα συναισθήματα και τις ανάγκες του μέσα από μια ολιστική προσέγγιση αυτογνωσίας και ψυχοσωματικής εξισορρόπησης.

Αποφασίσαμε να πραγματοποιήσουμε αυτή την εκπαίδευση σε έναν ξενώνα με άποψη, ψηλά στα βουνά της Κορινθίας. Θα γνωρίσουμε μια νέα γλώσσα επικοινωνίας με τον εαυτό μας και με τους άλλους και η υποστήριξη της φύσης κρίθηκε απολύτως απαραίτητη.
