X4 Self-Magic Live Play Sessions
Don’t-take-yourself-seriously-Dress-up party. Laughter. Light movement and color dance. Camera play. Indoors. Outdoors. Silliness. Red-est lipstick. Bring on your imagination and daring style. Green glitter and every other experiment you aren’t allowed at home! Ha!
We can take photos. Of ourselves and of others. Wear “pretty-sexy make up” and feel like the most gorgeous thing alive. Let loose some more adventurous versions of yourself. Think channelling your inner Madonna, Minnie Mouse, or Medusa. Miss Piggy or Magicka de Spell (Donald’s cousin.) Or whoever else that their name doesn’t start with an “M!”
X5 Self-Magic Circle Sessions
First hand guidance through the Self-Magic color archetypes and process. We will journal, make art for our photo-props and share our stories. Nothing like the eyes of another to help you see yourself.
“When we were small children we all played dress-up and everybody had a good time. So why stop?”
What you’ll get out of them?
- A solid foundation for your irresistible personal brand.
- Pictures of your most lively, dynamic and inspiring self, like wowa. Proof to help you remember who you are, loooong after the retreat is over.
- You’ll reveal sides of yourself, that you always knew were there, but were never seen or heard.
- A stronger voice and clearer vision of your desires and your future.
- A new sense of confidence and self-love. #priority
- A major life energy shift. You’ll feel inspired, connected, recharged (and more colorful.) #magnet
- You’ll leave loaded with plenty of ideas and visuals. For your business, website, social media, personal look-book and what not!
Hey, I’m Monicka Clio Sakki.
An award-winning Artist. Creative Director. Brand Expert. Self-Expression Coach. Publisher. Founder of Self-Magic School and The Art of Seeing & Showing Who You Are. Creator of The Sakki-Sakki Tarot – for the Artist in Each of Us. Co-author of its companion book Playing with Symbols. Trilingual with no mother tongue. INFJ. Married Mama of two. Magenta devotee.
I work with amazing, gold hearted, creative women. Through the Self-Magic process they come alive in their business and life. They get to be seen and build massive confidence. They also turn their creative expression into an evolving brand that stands out.
My fave tools are: The 6+1 colors. Parchment and tissue papers. Candy wrappers (ah, that coconut one). My daughter’s tutu. A “too much” long dress bought in Paris. Found objects anywhere (one’s trash is another’s treasure…) Camera. iPhone or iPad. Not waiting for the perfect mood.
“Finding Your Self-Magic” is my absolute dream, in-person, self-branding workshop.
Early bird price until May 15th: €999
Pay €500 upfront and the rest on site in October. For a private room, add €45 to the total.

The Complete Schedule
How can I get to Paros island?
You can reach Paros by plane from Athens (30 mins) , or by ferry boat from Piraeus or Rafina. In any case, book your flights, including to the island as soon as possible!
What day should I get there?
If you are coming from a friendly timezone, you can fly in that same day, Oct 8th. We meet only in the afternoon, so you have plenty of time to arrive and settle in. If you’ll arrive jet lagged, then you may want fly in a day before. Totally up to you!
What gear do I need for the workshop?
You’ll need a camera you’re excited to work with. At a minimum a smartphone would be ideal. If you have an iPad, pls bring it along!
Do I need to be talented or fit to participate?
We will get creative, and we’ll move, but no special talent or fitness level is required. Get ready to open your eyes though!
That said, if you’re looking for a workshop where you can sit on a pillow, and fill up your journal as you take notes, this is probably not for you…
Is this like a photography class?
Finding Your Self-Magic is not a photography class (although you will totally polish your photographic and “seeing” skills!)
In what language will the workshop be?
All communication is in English. But if you want to practice your Greek a little, I can help you here and there 🙂
I’m in Introvert. Is this for me?
I’m an introvert too!! It takes a safe space for us to come alive, and that’s why this workshop is an introvert’s heaven.
I got more questions. Can you help?
Yes! Shoot me an email!
“Monicka Clio Sakki is her own category.”
Whip-smart. Articulate. Hilarious & commanding. Plus mega mega creative. You can’t help but be in her presence and come alive with a jolt of excitement from your own electric self-magic. She’ll call you on your shit – and bake you a frosty cake in the same day. I trust her with my life & my business. (You will too.)
Erika Lyremark | Author, Think Like A Stripper & Creator of The Daily Whip
“Monicka is a modern sage.”
Don’t let her playful spirit fool you. She creates meaning by combining her natural strengths: Imagination, analysis, intuition, and creative expression.
At one glance, she’ll capture the essence of your true potential and the possibilities lying in front of you. She’ll do that by seeing through your bullshit and the stories you’ve been telling yourself. She helped me more than I can ever explain during the process of redefining my business. Her her x-ray vision, highly strategic questions, and direct, detailed feedback, helped me reach the level of clarity I have now. The power to step into the next stage in my business.
Cigdem Kobu | Founder of The Inky Path
“Holy moly, it has been transformation central for me.”
I have come to a much deeper sense of what I actually offer in my work and how I come across in the world. I was able to overcome resistance and discomfort. I found a way to show myself from a place of deep authenticity.
I have had a MONUMENTAL shift in the ease with which I let myself be me when I communicate in my photos and videos… You can (and should, PLEASE!) show this side of you to your audience. They NEED to see it.
Monicka is a generous, fierce, value-digging woman! Her process is deep and profound. This has been the most important work I’ve done for my business.
Susan Fauman | Jewelry Designer
“The best part was the freedom of showing myself who I am. It’s SO SELF EMPOWERING.”
In many ways Monicka brought out what I ALREADY knew I had inside of me. What was missing was my external expression of it. My photos are ‘familiar’ and ‘who I really am’ but in my living world, I haven’t come out with ‘who I really am’. I don’t know HOW to come out.
So… this was healing. To to see the real me ‘on the outside’ and it’s not surprising what I saw.
My pictures “talked back to me”, with business ideas! So unexpected!
I really loved the concept and the self love involved… I’ve never seen anything like it!
Anaa Mansouri | Your Heart Compass Guide
“This program gave me SO much confidence!”
This is different. It’s fun, personally engaging, but produces great business results. It brought positive energy into my marketing materials (and I haven’t felt so pretty in a few years!)
Monicka was great to work with: playful, creative, challenging. Always pushing me to the next level.
Elaine Bayless | Empowerment Coach
“Monicka takes people out of black & white and into color.”
As an entrepreneur, you can’t just blog anymore. She helps you determine how to express yourself in a creative way, and explore new ways to be seen. To have fun with it.
It was such a transition for me. It provided such a transformation in my level of comfort and where I could go for inspiration. That forever changed how I deal with people in the online environment.
Charlotte Spencer | Spiritual Docent & Soul Sherpa
“You are SO fun — that made it so much easier to Play and share.”
You are amazing… Wonderful energy, so very funny and engaging, encouraging without ever losing sincerity… I could go on…
And I hated any idea of video before — but I’m so coming around.
Did I mention exposure to her is super-motivating??
