Revolutionize your Creativity, your Branding and Yourself
for more Life + more Business.

A Daring + Demanding Experience for Superwomen.

Paros Island, Greece.

Oct 9-12, 2018

What you put out there for your business, doesn’t reflect who you are now.

Are you tired of watering yourself down?
Of being unexpressed, overlooked and undervalued?
Of having no time and space for yourself to explore how far you’ve come and how far you’ll go?
Oh-so-ready to come alive in full color? Hope so!!!!

We will gather: biz owners, fun loving, spirited friendly women, with some serious talents and excitement hidden inside of you.

You’ll bring along: Yourself. And a few things in your favorite color.

Return to Self-Magic is a daring + demanding, hands-on creative coaching retreat.

We’ll dive into our Image, Visibility and Personal Brand Development through creative self-expression.

The setting:
A magical island. The perfect-weather season. The crowds are gone, and so is the summer heat. Intimate group. Greek hospitality. Yummy food. The best light for photographic adventures. Creativity. Self-Expression. Joy. Island exploration. Collective photo-shoots. Color dance parties. Reflection. Space for you. Time on your own, doing nothing! Circle sharing. Healing. Possible running mascaras. Your next YOU look.

Hosted at the serene Tao’s center, in Paros, Greece. Workshop, accommodation, most meals and shared car are included.



Feel invisible. You’re not being seen or heard, even inside yourself.

You’re caught in the middle: mature and forever young at the same time. How does that work??

You crave to Feel things. Especially your excitement.

You crave to See things. Especially your value to others.

You need to shake things up. More joy with your body and image. More dates, even if you’re not single.

You need a break from everyday life to do the things you never do.

BUT. You’re usually at the footnote of your To-Do-list. If at all.

You need a space for your new self, your new inside-out image to happen.

And you’re ready to give yourself an extraordinary, transformative experience. Hell yes!!!

What’s included?

  • 4 nights accommodation. Private or Shared renovated rooms at a family owned hotel at the near by village of Ambelas. Yes, they have wifi. And a swimming pool!
  • Most Meals. Welcome dinner + x2 meals for the rest 3 days. Healthy, delicious, vegetarian. Fresh and local materials.
  • Shared Car to explore the island. Yoo-hoo!

The in-person experience:

  • X7 Return to Self-Magic Sessions.
  • Daily morning meditation at Tao’s Center (optional.)
  • Play Materials. (I’ll bring my Mary Poppins bag–as big as they will let me on the plane!)

The pre-workshop:

A prep-styling-workshop which will take place online one month before the retreat. #getready

The after-support:

4 weeks of Self-Magic coaching, photo-feedback, and encouragement after the workshop ends. Keep your mojo going and my eyes on you… even after you leave the island. #priceless

The Self-Magic framework

X3 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! The result?
Your Inside-out Image.
And we won’t stop unless we get there.

X4 Self-Magic Circle Sessions

The Self-Magic process, delivered to you first-hand by moi.
We’ll also journal, make art and share our stories. We’ll each witness each other’s journey.
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?”

Iris Apfel

When you Return to Self-Magic

You create EXCITEMENT. 

A major life energy shift. You’ll feel inspired, connected, recharged (and more colorful.) #magnet

That brings fun, confidence, action and most of all momentum (which is followed by money…) 

You awaken your CREATIVITY. 

The more creative you are, the more ideas and value you can create for other people.

Creativity also makes you unique & allows you to stand out. (Copycats don’t stand out…)

Creativity saves you money. Big time!

And you bring out your PERSONALITY.

When you do that, you become and show up as the best version of yourself. You’ll reveal sides of yourself, that you always knew were there, but never allowed to turn on the volume!

When you show up as the best version of yourself, you attract the best version of others as well. #winwin

You attract love, beauty and friendships of other amazing and inspirational people. 

Best attracts best. Fake attracts fake. You know what’s better for business, right??

Also, when you show your personality that’s when you really start to get noticed. 

You open yourself to opportunities of spreading your message wide (through the media, collaborations etc…)

You’ll walk out with Pictures of your most lively, dynamic and inspiring self, like wowa.

Loads of ideas and visuals. For your business, website, social media, personal look-book, dating profile and what not!

“Something in my heart opened. I could finally breathe.”

During the Self-Magic workshop I felt that “This is ok. I can do this.”
I can laugh more. I need to laugh more. Way more. I can have more joy. I can let my voice be heard. I can let everything to be seen and heard.

Now, at age 59, I feel legit to own my beauty, my wrinkles, all that I am, inside out.

Your Self-Magic Coach

Hey, I’m Monicka Clio Sakki.

I’m a devoted Wife and Mother, with another, not-so-secret, devotion to Creativity.

Space of my own and time alone are crucial to my well being. Self-Expression is my medicine. Creating and sharing my life’s work, is my happiness. Bonding with like minded humans, is my fuel. Coloring the world, is my calling. 

I work with open hearted, crazy-talented women, building a business and a personal brand. Craving to create their own change, their way. Through the Self-Magic process, they get their mojo moving and bust through blocks. They come alive and transition from their old self to their new self.

“Return to Self-Magic” is my absolute in-person, dream workshop. (because we really need to get out of the house for a few days to allow ourselves the playful freedom we have no longer time for!!) See ya at the “The Black Dance”!

“It all felt natural and not forced.”

It takes a certain level of openness and confidence to allow change to take place. Monicka brought softness. Flow and lightness. That created a special connection between the women.

Brouria Versano 

“Monicka creates an excellent vibe that encourages immediate connection.”

There was unity. I saw how the other women brought out hidden talents of playfulness, creativity and flow with what is. The experience was truly a shared one. I’m so grateful to be a part of it.


“I couldn’t wait to share. To share the pictures and my experience.”

I see how I look theatrical and powerful in the pictures, but I am so not. Now I see that I AM…Sometimes I am modest because I‘m afraid. I am now inspired to share more of myself on social media. Not just these pictures, but also about what I do professionally.

The group turned so intimate within a couple of hours. I felt so close, interested, and curious, and it was so pleasant for me.

Orli Zahor 

“I have never seen myself that way.”

At the beginning I didn’t enjoy taking my pictures so much. But little by little, within the hour, I grew into loving looking at myself.

I noticed that I’m never “available” to get a picture taken. And now I ask myself “why”? I do enjoy looking at myself in the pictures.

The Self-Magic workshop was something for Me. I realized that I need to do something for myself on a regular basis.

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 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!

“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??

Dr. Karen Shue | Brain and Health

“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.)
