An exploration of our relationship and connection with the natural world.
A space to reconnect with self and others giving time for silence, reflection and deep conversation in a semi rewilded setting in North County Sligo.
This day retreat will offer participants an opportunity to explore our relationship and connection with the natural world in the wider global context.
We will also give space to examine the struggles and desires we have in our relationship and connection with the natural world.
Time will be given to envision how we want to create more life-giving and sustainable ways of engaging with our natural environments, challenging dominant narratives of progress and development with a more sustainable and equitable future.
The day will allow flow between solo time in nature, facilitated group conversation, and options for creative expression. The aim is for participants to engage with our own inner resources, the natural environment around us and experience the benefit of face-to-face engagement with others in a respectful and encouraging environment.
There will be a maximum of 6 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.
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. She has worked as a psychosynthesis psychotherapist for the last 30 years in a variety of statutory and voluntary settings, with individuals, couples, families, groups, and young people.
