Summer Solstice Evening Retreat – Fully booked

Summer Solstice Evening Retreat – Fully booked

Solstice literally means light standing still.  This nurturing midsummer evening retreat is a perfect time to allow your mind and body to rest.

Reconnect with the healing gifts of nature during our mindful walk within the haven of Slieve Gullion forest.  Ann Ward, local Meditation Coach and Shinrin-Yoku (forest-bathing) practitioner will introduce you to forest-bathing and the many holistic benefits of the practice.

Tessa Ann Greer, founder of the Sound Healing Spa and Associate Teacher with the Colour of Sound Institute will introduce you to Sound Healing. This is an ancient tradition that uses the powerful properties of sound to assist with balancing our physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Sound has been scientifically proven to have a positive vibrational impact on the body and is often referred to as vibrational medicine. Tessa Ann will support you to tap into the power of your voice as your own sound healing tool. She will lead a sound bath workshop at Ann’s cosy meditation space ‘the Hut’ in the village of Meigh.

Our sensory experience includes fresh summer strawberries and water infused with fresh lemon and lime, tea (including herbal) /coffee and shortbread.

Accommodation is available at an additional cost within the perfect setting of Killeavy Castle or Blue Bell Lane Glamping
