Paxos island Greece


(Or Laughter, Learning and Lounging in the Sun!)

"You can discover more about yourself and others in an hour of play than in a year of conversation" (after Plato)

Would you like to feel free to be more joyful, spontaneous and authentic? To find that creative, playful and open side of yourself, and to laugh, relax and have fun at the same time? This exciting workshop led by Clowning facilitator, Carol Thompson, on the beautiful Greek Island of Paxos, will help you do all this, and more.

There are so many things to discover by playing with your inner clown. This is not the 'big shoes' and 'squirty flowers' kind of clown, and there are no techniques or comic gags to learn; no trying to be funny or clever. This is about you being your own delightful self as you play with how you really are in the here and now, connecting to your authenticity as you relate to others.  It's a personal journey on which you will discover your own unique way of being a clown.

The workshop is experiential and through play, games, exercises and short improvisations we will learn to let go of our control over things and be surprised by what reveals itself to us. In a safe and supportive environment we will explore

    connecting to our spirit of play and joy

    coping with life without being concerned about getting it 'right'

    developing presence and building confidence

    finding the courage to be more emotionally available

    experiencing deep and gentle human communication

    improving health and well being

    laughing and having fun! 

Playing with your Inner Clown consists of five morning group sessions with an optional sharing before a small invited audience on the Saturday evening. No previous experience is necessary and the number of participants is limited to eight.

To find out more about clowning, visit

Where you will stay: Accommodation will be in lovely shared villas, each with its own pool and spacious terraces, set in the shade and tranquillity of the olive groves about a 20-minute walk above Loggos.

Holiday Cost:  The holiday costs 695 per person, which includes tuition, accommodation in a shared twin room, transfers between Corfu airport and your accommodation on Paxos, dinner with wine (or soft drinks) in a local taverna on the first and last nights, welcome and farewell drinks, breakfast, and any local transport required in connection with the clowning sessions. There is a supplement of 125 per person for sole use of a twin/double room. Any optional activities such as Greek cookery, Greek dancing, boat trips and walks, will be at additional cost.

For full details of what is included in the cost of the holiday and of the accommodation, please see 'Playing with your Inner Clown Further Information'.

Alternative accommodation and extending your holiday: If you already have your own accommodation, then it is usually possible just to join the group tuition sessions. We can also help you to find accommodation if you would like to stay somewhere other than our shared villas or would like to extend your holiday and spend a few additional days on Paxos or a few days on Corfu, either before or after the course. Please contact us to discuss the options.

To Book: Please read our Booking Conditions and the Important Information section of this website and then complete and submit an On-line Booking Form. Our holidays are open to people of all ages and abilities aged 18 or over. However, Paxos is a relatively hilly island and we therefore do not feel that they are suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

Second Holiday/Course Discount: We will give you a discount of 40 if you book any two holidays or courses in our current programme.

Further Information: Do have a look round our website and, if you would like further information about any of our holidays and courses or about Paxos more generally, then please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
