In ancient times, Nemea was the site where athletes used to prepare for the rigors and labors of the Olympic Games, which took place in nearby Olympia. Known for its vibrant and restorative energy, athletes, beginning with Hercules, chose Nemea as their fertile starting ground for charging themselves with vitality, strength and all resources necessary for excellence and victory.
However, nowadays, we have all in some way become ‘athletes’; only that our modern ‘Olympic Games’ are the challenges, complex demands and tribulations of contemporary everyday life. The most challenging amongst all our ‘olympic labors’ is to discover ourselves and find peace and inner tranquility while staying active, creative and innovative in an ever-changing world which calls upon us to transform it.
We all aspire to leave a footprint in this world, we all seek to make this world a better place. But to do that, we must first start with ourselves.
In the footsteps of the ancient athletes, we are now also given the opportunity to benefit from Nemea’s nourishing qualities and energetic exuberance in order to prepare ourselves for the biggest challenge of all: our lives. In our community, individuals can nourish, heal and improve themselves on all levels—physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual—simply by being present in Nemea’s powerful and positively energized surroundings.
