Retreat

Re-emerging from the pandemic experience

New Date for Autumn TBC.

This day retreat will offer participants an opportunity to reflect on the challenges and growth gifts arising from this pandemic experience.  We will also give space to examine the struggles and desires we have in relation to re-emerging from and living with the restrictions of the last 16 months.

Time will be given to envision how we want to create more life-giving and sustainable ways of engaging with others in our work and everyday social environments.

The day will allow flow between solo time in nature, facilitated group conversation and options for creative expression.  The aim is for participants to re-engage with their own inner resources and experience the benefit of face-to-face engagement with others in a respectful and encouraging environment.

There will be a maximum of 8 participants.  Every effort will be made to ensure that participants feel safe and that adequate social distancing and hygiene guidelines are facilitated.  Group conversations will be held in a well-ventilated geodome with plenty of opportunities for being outside weather permitting.  There is also a landscaped polytunnel that is available for participants.

We aim to be as inclusive as possible within the space available to us and will always engage participants in a creative conversation with the facilitator and the land to make attendance work successfully.
We see inclusion as a living process and will agree within the group a process that meets all needs within the space available to us.

For hygiene reasons, participants are invited to bring their own lunch and snacks.  Tea and coffee will be provided.

Cost:  €95.  There are some subsidised places available for those who are unwaged or on low incomes. Please contact Celia or Imogen if you would like to discuss this further.

A note on my co-facilitator Imogen O’Connor:

She sees healing as a co-creative collaboration which brings self ever more alive. She seeks to live this in her relationships with herself, her partner, family, clients as well as the land surrounding her house which has offered much solace and joy over the years.
