CENCA is a small estate/farm on Pelion Peninsula, the ancient living place of Centauri. Run by a nonprofit organization, CENCA hosts seminars, workshops, and mini-retreats, exploring holistic health, and alternative health practices of prevention and treatment. We live in harmony with nature, cultivate herbs, fruit trees and a small farm that provides most of our veggies, and we have 3 dogs and plenty of cats. We also offer work-exchange opportunities to like-minded wandering travellers.
At CENCA we cultivate ecology, balance, peace and harmony. The community was created in 2018 with the mission to build favorable conditions for awakening and global coherence, through energy enhancement, insightful empowerment and development of inner harmony with ourselves and the environment.
Spirituality at CENCA is independent from religion and we honor all paths. You are not required to adhere to any specific religious or spiritual beliefs to visit CENCA. You are able to be yourself! No criticism, no violence, absolute acceptance of every different culture, in the borders of respecting everyone’s expression, freedom and dignity. Cosmic Energy Healing retreats open the consciousness towards spirituality.
The intention of the community is the development of our inner selves and Spiritual nature using Energy Cleansing and Self-Awareness tools. If you are interested in entering such a process, you are welcome to work with us on various projects.
It is a process of Inner evolution and Spiritual evolution, which has conditions and steps to which one needs to enter with an open mind and an open heart, if one really wants to move forward. We invite you to focus on the essence of Energy Purification and therefore, deal with your own issues, instead of criticizing others and making suggestions. New ideas, as solutions to some practical issues, are encouraged and welcome.
The first step of Self-Awareness is the Self-Observation of your inner and outer reality. Presence in the Here and Now. That is why we invite you to talk as much as is necessary for the interaction, and no more. Communicate openly and honestly your thoughts, the ones you consider important as a basis for interaction; with understanding, respect and empathy. “Why?” does not help communication. Curiosity is acceptable only as a stage of evolution. Answers are always there and given when the questions are asked in the right way, ie. with respect, acceptance and discretion.
The second step of Self-Awareness is Consciousness and Caring. Every thought, emotion, and action, has an energetic impact on you first, and then on other people, animals, and plants all over the Planet. So every moment one needs to think how their every action will affect themselves and those around them.
A constant prerequisite of Self-Awareness is Non-Judgment. Criticism is an attitude we learn from early childhood and aims to cultivate guilt. Through guilt, people become more manipulative and more easily controlled. During your stay here, you will have the opportunity to learn, and not to judge. First for yourself and then to others. Of all the derivatives of the verb “to judge” (in Greek) keeps only the Distinction. It is the one you will need to make your Choices. All other derivatives do not help you to move forward, to evolve.
There are specific rules that govern living in the Community, rules that support the Respect and Freedom of Thought and Opinion. There are definitely many alternative practices for everyone to move forward in their own way. We encourage individual practices, although a discussion with the Coordinator is requested, in order to apply some instruction to others. We are not an Alternative Research Group. We already have some specific practices to suggest. Anyone who wants to meet them, is given the opportunity. Whomever does not want to, is not obliged to do so.
Always remember, that whenever we do not want to look inside, we experience our outer reality as “Fate”. So, to avoid “fatal” surprises, learn to see others as your mirrors, which mirror your own issues, which could provide an opportunity for self-reflection.
Nothing is “Random” in your life. They all come with a purpose and for a reason, to “teach” you a lesson which you have chosen to learn in this incarnation. Souls that you may meet who make it difficult for you in some way, have a lot to teach you, and for that you should be grateful. Every incarnation is a class in the school. We are all classmates in this classroom and our Environment is our classroom. Remember to keep everything clean of “dirty” negative thoughts and feelings.
We thank you for your trust and cooperation.
If you are coming to our farm – retreat center for community living, you will find a beautiful model in action. Eco-practices are widely used in our every-day relationship with nature, to honor our environment.
All residents of CENCA are responsible for working it out among themselves to make a schedule for keeping everything clean, organized and doing what it takes to keep communal living areas neat. You will also be responsible for keeping your own room clean and tidy. The daily duties of cooking and serving breakfast/lunch/dinner are shared in rotation.
This work does not count as work exchange credit or any discount towards rental fees or retreats. This is just normal stuff you would do around your own home to keep things neat and clean!
Community chores everyone shares are fairly easy, it is not heavy work, just what is needed to keep the living areas in order, and would only amount to a small amount of time per week. This practice turns our perception to a new community model of living, more compatible to the global field coherence.
Visitors, guests, residents & volunteers may stay in the house, the guest house, the vintage trailer, and for the more adventurous we also have the option of the cob house or tents! Where you’ll stay will depend on the season and how many people will be here at the time. Please enquire with your interest & dates, and we will discuss the options.
these are some of the workshops we offered in previous years:
Natural Building – Natural Building with cob

CENCA is a small estate/farm on Pelion Peninsula, the ancient living place of Centauri.
In Greek mythology, Centauri were ancient Neolithic species (hybrid creatures, half-man & half-horse), who were displaced by the Achaens and Dorians and lived on the mountains. The most known Centaur was Chiron, a wise creature of divine origin, who acquired fame as a healer, scientist and seer. He raised and taught many gods and demigods like Asclepius (the ancient god of medicine), Achilles and Hercules. The whole area of Mount Pelion has healing energy spread out, derived from these ancient myths. Chiron is the archetype of the “wounded healer”.
We are in a rural area, a short 10-min walk from the sea, and a 20-min drive from the city of Volos, or you can get here by bus. We also have bikes you can borrow to explore the nearby area! During workshops in the summer months we swim daily, and go on small local excursions.
If you are interested in living at CENCA for a period of time, you can do that by joining our very rewarding work-exchange programme. We give like-minded people the opportunity to join us and live on the estate for free, with the exchange of a few hours of work per day, mostly helping out with estate maintenance, farming veggies, and taking care of our pets.
Workawayers will have the opportunity to swim in a marvellous clean sea, hike on mountain paths in the woods, explore beauties of nature around on foot or riding our bikes. We appreciate that the volunteers as well as our guests are of the same mindset and belief in respecting our environment and animal friends.
The programme runs from March to October, and our volunteers can stay in the guest house, in the trailer, the cob house, or in tents during busy periods. You can find more info on our workaway profile.
We look forward to hearing from you!
