We travel to the Carpathan Mountain region of Ukraine, where an ancient tradition of herbalist shamans, the molfar, is still practiced by a select few who help villagers using vegetation from the mountains.

Kiev Perchesk Lavra

We travel to the Kiev Perchesk Lavra, a sacred location in the Ukranian Orthodoxy. Often called a birthplace of Western Christian Orthodoxy, a number of monks traveled to the Lavra to die in the caves, where devotees go to meet and kiss their corpses.

Davelis Cave

We travel to the Davelis Cave in the mountains of Attica in Greece, once said to be the home of Pan, god of the wild and his nymphs. The site contains an abandoned Church and is named after a bandit who hid his treasures there. What is it about the cave that draws so many people from so many different backgrounds in?

Cave of the Apocalypse

We travel to the Cave of the Apocalypse, where St John had his vision of Christ and saw the Apocalypse, his inspiration for the Book of Revelations. Residents of the cave’s island, Patmos, feel as much influence from the site in their daily lives as their religious practices.

Arkadi Monastery

We visit the Arkadi Monastery, a Greek Orthodox temple hidden in the mountains of Crete. Arkadi is a holy site surrounded by natural beauty, but an age-old story and sacrifice has made it something more.


We travel to the prehistoric caves on Matala Beach, where famous hippies including Joni Mitchell lived for a while. Hippies still live in the caves today, taking an easy lifestyle with the land and taking advantage of the knowledge of our ancestors from long ago.
