Laura Shannon

My name is Rachel Thomas and I will be your wellness retreat hostess. I have spent the past 25 years discovering and teaching about how humans have depended on the earth for their health.

Consultations with Rachel

I first fell in love with the goddesses of Antiquity as a Greek-American girl growing up in Brooklyn. For me, being in Greece unlocks my passion to understand these powerful, and currently vanquished, queens of heaven. Tasting the ancient recipes for health, standing on the sites where the mother earth was worshiped and seeing the millennia of artwork with clues to how ancient people survived using only the tools that nature gave them.
