MERAKi

Meraki, from Greek, means to do something with all your soul, creativity and love. Create from the essence with passion in your heart. On this trail we learn how a director from the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece, a local Island herbalist, a dance teacher and a dive instructor, rely on their day to day practice to connect with nature. Seeking balance in ever changing worlds we visit lessons from sea turtles, listen for the guiding rhythms of plants and travel immersed in the transformative power of dance.
