Sanctuary of Asklepios at Epidaurus - the healing Centre of the classical world. During an age where people believed that physical healing was deeply intertwined with the Divine, in a small valley in the Peloponnesus, the shrine of Asklepios, the god of medicine, was erected. The Sanctuary is a stunning testament to the healing cults of the Ancient World and witness to the emergence of scientific medicine. The site comprises a series of ancient monuments spread over two terraces and surrounded by the exquisite Greek landscape. Among the monuments of the Sanctuary is the striking Theatre of Epidaurus, which is renowned for its perfect architectural proportions and heavenly acoustics. The Theatre, together with the Temples of Artemis and Asklepios, the Tholos, the Enkoimeterion and the Propylaia, are a magnificent illustration the significance and power of the healing gods of the Hellenic and Roman worlds. This site has an heir of divinity, a deep peace, and an outstanding natural beauty. In a world that is now coming back to the realisation
that the mind/body connection has a powerful influence in our own healing, physically and psychologically, let’s explore/meditate/yoga in the ancient footsteps of some of the most innovative minds and philosophers of the ancient world.
