Who We Are
Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful even without looking for it. Julius H. Comroe once described serendipity as: “to look for a needle in a haystack and get out of it with the love of your life, the farmer’s daughter!”
Serendipity Institute was born in 2008 through a sequence of “pleasant surprises” for its supporters and this is the feeling it wishes to generate to you.
In Serendipity Institute we meet the needs of the new era, proposing you Meditation & Holidays , through a well chosen program of retreats. Serendipity Personal Growth Holidays are held in Europe and specifically in Greece. Here, you will find the best of Greece in one place and the opportunity to live next to a Sandy Beach near Athens.
Our vision is to spread the holistic ZORBA THE BUDDHA WAY OF LIVING philosophy, a creative way of living you are going to experience, through a joyful adventure that we named “All in One Experience“. The backbone of all our retreats and programs is living this holistic experience, through which you have the opportunity to discover and express the luminous side of yourself and life itself.
