Nature Healing Meditation WEEKEND RESIDENTIAL


There is a part of all of us that feels at home in nature, which allows our brain, body and soul to function differently. Science shows that being connected with nature results in changes inside our hearts that calm and soothe nerves, fight depression and reduces stress. This gentle and organic weekend residential workshop will connect you with the many beautiful nature elements that the Glenmalure Valley has to offer, in the heart of the Wicklow mountains. Through mindfulness & guided meditation practices, deep relaxation sessions, and personal process facilitation, combined with a deeper understanding of the cycles of nature: birth, growth, decay, death, and rebirth, you will be guided on a journey of self-discovery of the innate wisdom of nature both within and outside the self. When we connect with Nature’s cycles with awareness, the natural cycles within our own experience awaken and deepen, and our soul-directed impulse towards growth can be grounded and integrated into daily life. This allows for life experiences to take on new meanings with greater significance and any personal struggles can then be experienced as a reflection of the continuous movement of nature, from darkness to light, rather than a disruption or disturbance of your own personal mind, body or spirit. This will allow you tap into the strength and support of nature through difficult times, instead of feeling weak, disempowered or broken. You will learn tools and practices that can be applied to daily life, relationships and circumstances outside the workshop to allow you to awaken our soul’s innate connection with deeper joy, creativity and wellbeing. This flexible programme incorporates reflective engagement with Nature in the outdoors and indoor sessions. Through conscious resonance, we work co-creatively with Nature, and each other, toward mutual healing.
