Happy is the man, I thought, who, before dying, has the good fortune to sail the Aegean sea. – Nikos Kazantzakis

- Group Getaways & Corporate experience with your friends, family, or colleagues and create memories that will last a lifetime.
- WOMEN’S GROUPS – An Individualized Mental Health Program For Women (Offered only to women and Transgender/ Transsexual Women – survivors of trauma, PTSD or transitional stress related life issues). We believe that when a woman comes to The Metropolis Retreat Mental Wellness Center she is at her most vulnerable and needs a supportive and nurturing healing environment. Our program is a comprehensive treatment program that includes a variety of clinical program modalities but begins with the creation of a unique individualized treatment plan tailored specifically for each client. As women progress through the program they move from an initial focus on gaining insight and working on past issues to a more present-centered, “here and now” focus. Later as they advance further the orientation will shift to a more future-oriented focus as they begin the work on the more difficult piece of how to stay well long-term

The Metropolis Center is located in the beautiful rustic part of Crete (within driving hours from the main airport in Crete, Heraklion).
There is a kind of flame in Crete – let us call it “soul” – something more powerful than either life or death. There is pride, obstinacy, valor, and together with these something else inexpressible and imponderable, something which makes you rejoice that you are a human being, and at the same time tremble. – Nikos Kazantzakis
