Join Mari for a long weekend of yoga, mediation, walks in nature and delicious food!

 

 

The festival of Lughnasa, one of the 8 festivals in the Celtic calendar, was a joyful  time when the Celtic people gathered to celebrate the harvest.  They honoured the God Lugh, “the Samildanach or the many gifted one”.

Over this long weekend, at the start of Lughnasa, we will mark the festival of harvest by gathering to explore our relationship to joy today.  We will cultivate the practices of gratitude and appreciation as we celebrate and harvest the gifts and blessing in our lives.

The truth is there are many things in our lives to celebrate and appreciate but because we are hardwired for negativity, we rarely stop to count our blessings and experience the joy.

 

 

Hot tub

 

Over theses 4 days we will look at this habitual tendency and transform it through yoga, mindfulness and coaching. We will take the time to literally let the good in and begin to rewire our neurology for.

 

 

We will  take an early morning walk on the cliffs, sit under the sky in the hottub at sundown, we will seize any chance to jump off rocks into the sea at high tide and marking the Celtic festival and we will pay a visit to a holy well (a tradition at Lughnasa).

 

Doolin

Everything on the schedule is optional with the invitation to choose things that bring you joy over these 4 days.  Choose to sleep in or choose to get up with the sun to meditate. Go back to bed after breakie or jump on your mat, find a quiet rock with your book or plunge into the Summer buzz of Lahinch, take time to reflect or go explore this magic corner of the world.

What’s not to EnJOY!
