In a magical retreat in Crete we dived into the history, culture and transformations of women over the centuries
“The tour guide and speaker of the retreat, Ioanna Kalypso Glypti , talks to us about Orthodox iconography, about its influences from the Egyptian Fayums, but also about the depiction of the Virgin through the centuries. The woman as the mother of God.
The guided tour by Ioanna Kalypso Glypti is another strong card of this experience. Even more important than her knowledge, which turns her into a living encyclopedia, and the way she connects culture with politics, economics, history, women’s rights and folklore, is the theatricality of her narratives, with contagious passion for every subject she tackles.”
