Summer Solstice Evening Retreat – Fully booked

Summer Solstice Evening Retreat – Fully booked

Solstice literally means ‘light standing still’….and this evening retreat will allow you to stand still as the light fades on the longest day of the year guided by Gullion Ambassador Ann Ward. 

Ann is a meditation coach and a member of the International Society of Nature and Forest Medicine. She teaches a secular practice drawn from a number of ancient traditions and contemporary sources including the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and other famous exponents of mindfulness such as Jon Kabat-Zinn and Sharon Salzberg

This retreat will allow you to immerse yourself in the stillness of Slieve Gullion forest and experience the gifts of mindfulness and forest bathing…

Refresh yourself with mindful eating and drinking practice with summer strawberries and water infused with lemon and lime…….in Ann’s quirky meditation space ‘the Hut’.

You will reconnect with the turning year through a summer solstice healing white light meditation…

and rest during a body scan, supporting deep relaxation and a peaceful night’s sleep…….

Booking is essential by contacting Ann on 078 1683 5147 or by email [email protected] the cost of the evening is £20 including refreshments.
