About the Event
Investment: Euro 144
It will be a really intimate group for the day to enrich the individual experience. Learning to mother ourselves, simply means cultivating a kind & loving inner voice, being gentle with ourselves as we meet the smaller aspect that lives within us all, spending time with yourself, creating a loving connection to you. Its an inner experience and so potent to spend time with other women as we nurture ourselves in this way.
The Spring Equinox represents the half way point between the winter solstice just passed and the upcoming summer solstice. It is the point where we are on the cusp of half dark and half light on the land.
By honouring our earth's seasons, it also helps us to honour the different cycles we go through each month as women with our moon cycle, regardless of whether we menstruate or not, our energy is cyclical like the seasons & the moon cycles. The more we move into harmony with our own cycles, the more we work with the divine feminine energies available to us all.
This retreat held up high in the Wicklow mountains for an intimate circle of women in Glendalough Sanctuary, it is my second retreat offering this year and it feels so special to align it with the Spring Equinox.
I will guide us through a gentle yoga movement practice including breath, relaxation in the morning. After a really delicious vegetarian lunch we will take a walk to St. Kevins Way River Walk where we can take a swim or dip our feet in the water. In the afternoon I will serve rose tea or ceremonial cacao we wrap ourselves up in a cozy cocoon of blankets to immerse ourselves in a deep guided relaxation.
My aim is that you will leave the retreat, feeling refreshed, renewed and nurtured with a beautiful connection to yourself and your inner light.
Ceremonial Cacao is a healing plant medicine, if you haven't experienced it before, please read here for more details https://www.mindingmewellness.com/learn-about-purchase-cacao/ I will also serve a rose tea for anyone who wishes to have tea instead for the afternoon ceremony.
Note: if you are on anti-depressants, have a heart condition or are pregnant/breastfeeding - please let me know so I can reduce your dosage accordingly if you wish to have cacao.
No previous experience is required, I will create a safe & loving space with lots of alternatives for postures provided, just bring an open mind & open heart.
