Residential Retreat in Ireland West
Thursday, March 21st to Sunday, March 24th
Ireland particularly the West of Ireland was a place of pilgrimage for thousands of years. Journeyers came to gain clarity and let go of burdens. Some came with questions and used the time to align and attune to their true essence. They left empowered with clarity about their purpose and passion for life.
To this day the land of Connaught and County Mayo has been a place to pilgrim. This part of Ireland holds the mystical part of Ancient Land, where the Tuaithe De Dannan arrived. The veil is thin thus offering opportunities to open more fully to a multi-sensory way of being and seeing the world
The Heart holds much; This particular retreat offers opportunities in a safe and held space to connect and feel and allow some of the holdings to go, to open to what it can receive in new and fresh ways.
There will be rituals to heal and bring light to the ancestral line, to connect to what needs to be wished for and felt, and to awaken to the joy of living and life's purpose.
We will work with the elements of earth, fire, and water to bring gifts of deep connection, expansion, and growth
This time of Spring Equinox is a time to turn to the light of your being and be with your story any losses or family story that requires releasing, healing, and restoration to Love and Light.
Let the ancient land of the west of Ireland bring transformation.
