Join us on a journey of discovery on the magnificent isle of Crete, the center of Mediterranean Diet research. Our base is in the foothills near the Minoan Palace of Knossos, where olive oil and wine has been produced for over four thousand years.  This historic region is bustling with small-scale agricultural production in communities striving to sustain cherished traditions. We’ll explore the region during private, expert-guided tours of amazing archaeological sites, natural parks/botanical hikes, organic farms, olive oil factories and wineries. We’ll learn more about “food as medicine” during cooking classes with professional chefs and presentations by health professionals and alternative medicine practitioners. Over 20 teachers will present during this 7-Day Mediterranean Immersion.
