A regular day at Meraki

The (re)introduction of kairos

An ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment (the supreme moment). The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While the former refers to chronological or sequential time, the latter signifies a time lapse, a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens. At Meraki we honor Kairos. 

 

A rough idea of how your day could look like. Based on the life lived in Blue Zones.

you'll wake up with the note of the day waiting for you to be unpacked. A brand new day. Good morning! 

 

Before Sunrise

Join a fisherman fishing or wake up to see the sunset. It's magical - totally worth the early rising, promise. 

After Sunrise

Just before or after breakfast is a good time to exercise mentally and/or physically. The sun is not too high in the sky yet - your mind is still uncluttered, perfect conditions for a morning ritual.

Breakfast for a time span for about 2-3 hours. Wake up and get your simple Mediterranean breakfast. Some fresh fruit, Greek yoghurt and home made honey anyone? Home made warm bread with marmalade from Maria perhaps? Locally produced and organic products. 

Around mid day

This is a time span of about 3-4 hours. You can swim, have a light lunch, do some sightseeing, surf, read - whatever you feel like basically.

Siesta

We encourage going with the flow with the average Greeks' way of life. 

Before sunset

Get yourself something small to eat until diner is served in a couple of hours. Time between sunset and diner is perfect to do a workshop or a course. You can help in the kitchen if you feel like it or just relax, chat or read some more. However you want.

Sunset

Go watch it somewhere. It's as magical as the sunrise in Greece.

After sunset

We dine on a big table a couple of days per week. All together. Home made Greek food prepared for us by someone local.

With meraki of course - that just always tastes better.
