brigid's day retreat
Workshops in the Woods!
Awaken, Attune & Align with a Two-Day Retreat:
+ Day 1: Sunday, Feb 5th (Brigids Day Workshop in the Woods)
+ Day 2: Sunday Feb 19th (Valentines Weekend Workshop in the Woods!)
This special weekend holds much magic as we celebrate the beginning of Imbolc, Spring and the powerful archetype of Brigid.
Brigid is the matron saint of Ireland and 2023 marks the first year of a national holiday in her honour.
Recognised as a Saint, a Goddess and a leader of Ireland, she appears in mythologies around the world as a protector of women and children, a symbol of power, creativity, passion, and great courage.
Let’s take this opportunity to embody all that she represents and to welcome the fire of creativity, courage and new beginnings within us all!
The Spring Awakening Retreat supports us to:
+ Align with the seasons, reconnect us to the cycles of nature, and the coming of more light,
+ Boost our energy and encourage our creative ideas to take bloom
+ Awaken us to the bigger picture, get perspective on our lives and the direction we wish to take forward
+ Reconnect to our ancestors, the gifts of the natural elements and the power of ritual
Our practices will create a living mandala for transformation & awakening through:
~ Mindful Walking, Tree Meditation, Forest Bathing
~ Elemental Chi Gung in the Forest, Embodiment Practices
~ Journey-work to empower your full potential, honour your past and align with your present
~ Connect with the powerful energy of Brigid
