Malahide Castle, 8-9 December 2018

Two days to refresh, cultivate peace and rest in stillness

What a gift, to have two days devoted to your wellbeing! Through mindfulness, this mini-retreat offers us space to come home deeply to ourselves, listen to our needs and rest in stillness. We will explore guided meditation practices to rest in open presence and strengthen our hearts.

The weekend includes time to explore the Walled Garden and Butterfly sanctuary.  The retreat runs from 10am-4pm on both days, with a one hour break for lunch. We will practice to take good care of ourselves within the busy Christmas season, to stay connected to our heart and to protect ourselves from falling into old or unwholesome patterns.

  • Saturday: open to all (new or experienced practitioners)

  • Sunday: open to those who have taken part in Saturday’s retreat or who have experience.

Thank you, Orlaith, for creating an oasis of gentle peace, reinforcing how to stay in the present moment and treat oneself with loving kindness.

Practices include

  • mindful awareness

  • guided meditation

  • nourishing self-kindness

  • moving into stillness

  • deep relaxation

  • resting in open presence

  • chocolate meditation

mini-retreat cost: €65 one day / €130 weekend

The retreat fee includes morning and afternoon refreshments and complimentary entry to the Walled Gardens.

No experience is necessary for Saturday 8 December, as each practice will be introduced and there will be ample time for questions. On Sunday, we will enjoy a little more silence and stillness, and so Sunday is best suited to people who have participated on Saturday or who have experience of mindfulness practice.

A wonderful day. Deep relaxation was such a treat. Thank you!
Orlaith is amazing. She makes mindfulness so practical and accessible. A wonderful day of nurturing.

Q: I don't have any experience - can I still attend?

Absolutely. The practices will all be introduced and guided, so it is a very supported environment. Mindfulness is explored with curiosity, kindness and a good dose of humour!
