Gregory DamaskosGregory is the founder and director of Authenticity Health and Wellness Retreat. His own path and awakenings have led him to study Naturopathy, Psychotherapy, Massage, Nutrition, Herbal Medicine and Yoga.

His therapeutic practices as  psychotherapist and conscious evolution facilitator have a wide range of applications. He focuses on assisting individuals in their major transitions and crises through life, as well as helping them to regain their control over their health and wellbeing.

Gregory’s vision, anchored through Authenticity is in the creation of a fully functioning Spiritual, Alchemical Sanctuary and Wellness Centre. To that purpose he has gathered a team of highly skilled practitioners in traditional and revolutionary therapies to facilitate healing of mind, body and spirit and for planetary healing through ethical decisions, respect of natural resources and sustainable technologies.

Drawing inspiration from teachers such as Jose Arguelles Stanislav Grof and many esoteric teachings and philosophies, Gregory is committed to facilitating an evolutionary process of healing and self-realisation, functioning as a spiritual guide, teacher and healer for those who seek to evolve and expand beyond the realms of the mundane.

“To transcend one’s limitations and reach Authenticity, one must be prepared to question everything and anything that defines the realm of norms, accepted realities and conditionings.”

“Who is the prophet but a madman awakened from centuries of sleep?”

Margaritis is a practising Remedial Massage Therapist and Healer. He specialises in treating injuries, chronic pain and releasing stored tensions. He also teaches basic Tai-Chi principles and bio-mechanics as well as Remedial Yoga for counter-balancing the body after a day’s long work and to treat old persistent injuries and for general wellbeing.

Personal experiences and knowledge in self-healing led him to follow a career in the Health industry. It is at that when he met with Gregory Damaskos, founder of Authenticity, who offered him to join the Health Retreat team.

His personal Healing Journey began at age 29 during his days as a music performer, song writer and teacher. After, what he sees as “an imbalanced life style of an entertainer” in which he felt extremely old for his age (tired, lethargic and in constant pain) he faced a transformative life crisis. With the assistance of several natural modalities, (fasting and scientific dieting), physical exercises like Yoga and Tai-Chi as well as many personal development seminars, personal research and studies he became his own Physician.

After further Tertiary studies in Remedial Therapy he now is one of the Senior Massage Therapists practicing at Authenticity for nearly two decades.

You will find his treatments thorough, effective and soothing.

Margaritis is truly a wealth of insight which he happily passes onto those who seek it.

A desire to lead a more healthful, balanced and rewarding life personally drew Georgina to naturopathy, along with a deep love of nature and a strong belief in self-empowerment to make positive change.

With an emphasis on food as medicine, using healing extracts from plants and introducing beneficial lifestyle choices, she equips individuals with knowledge and tools to progress their journeys towards greater health and wellness.

Naturopathy is complementary medicine, founded upon “nature cure”. It recognises that health and wellbeing are inter-dependent upon our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual environments.

Georgina’s passion is to help people enhance their inherent healing ability, by working with nature to restore balance.

As a bachelor-trained naturopath, Georgina is fully qualified to treat a range of conditions, acute or chronic, mental and/or physical. No problem is too great or small!
