Food for the Soul –Yoga & Nature Immersion
‘Come with me into the Woods where Spring is advancing, as it does, no matter what…..one of the forever gifts, and certainly visible’‘Mary Oliver
This deeply nurturing weekend is for anyone who would like to unwind into the healing power of nature. The content of this retreat is inspired by the practices that I love to share, including some techniques I use in my kinesiology clinic – Yoga, meditation, intentional connection with the wisdom & beauty of nature, simple ritual and stress release.
Our venue is the very special Glendalough Sanctuary so you will be bathed in prana as you sleep (this is a good thing 😉 ) and our walks will be in the magical deciduous woodlands nearby.
Numbers will be small so quiet time and individual attention are assured. A non residential option is also available. If you have any questions about the weekend please contact me directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dates : March 31st 6pm – April 2nd 1:30pm
Cost : Residential : €350 (excluding meals), Non-residential : €200. Please email email@example.com to book
Open to the Breath, Open to the World – Day Retreat in Glendalough
The first day retreat of 2023 is on 25th February. We will gather in magical Glendalough Valley to move, breathe and rest. As always, the day will include Yoga-inspired movement, delicious food and good company.
We will bring particular attention to the breath as a way to feel present and grounded in the body, and more alive to our own potential. The breath is always there; we can access it at any time and harness it to experience deep peace and expansion, even in times of contraction. This has been my direct experience and I look forward to sharing it with you.
There will be time to reflect, do absolutely nothing, walk, journal or do whatever you please. A delicious vegetarian lunch will also be provided. We will be a small group so please get in touch to secure your place or if you have any questions – firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Retreat space is beautiful Glendalough Sanctuary and it is also possible to stay overnight here before and/or after the retreat. Waking up in the Glendalough Valley, restored from a day’s practice is a very special experience – you have the place to yourself and a morning walk is truly magical! Please contact their team directly for more information about this.

An Online Course of 5 Evening Sessions over 5 Weeks
A course for therapists, teachers, coaches and anyone who facilitates a supportive or healing space in service of others. It is such a privilege to work in this field and while it is incredibly rewarding, burnout and exhaustion are a real concern. I have developed this course in response to requests from those of you in the caring field who would like to explore new ways of supporting yourselves while you support others. Informed by my learning over the years, topics will include:
- The difference between facilitating and fixing – putting this in practice for sustainable energy levels and a quiet mind!
- Creating and maintaining healthy boundaries from a place of kindness and respect.
- Dealing with imposter syndrome….who is that voice in your head and how can we encourage her/him to pipe down and let you enjoy what you’re doing?!?!
- Navigating your environment when you are very sensitive to the emotions of others.
- Rituals for opening and closing sacred space
- Simple meditation and visualisation practices for grounding and centering.
- Techniques for recovering your ground when triggered by an interaction.
- Trust in timing.
- Remedies that help
- Restoring your energy when you feel drained – how to ‘fill your cup’.
- The importance of community – many of us work alone, without colleagues or support. This is not sustainable or healthy for us or for our clients/students.
7:00pm – 8:30pm on Thursday 27th October, 3rd November, 10th November, 17th November, 24th November 2022
The course will be delivered online via zoom. Each session will be recorded and the recording will made available to participants for 2 weeks. Course material will be emailed to participants after each evening session and I will be available for support between sessions if required.
The investment for the course is €220. A non-refundable deposit of €80 guarantees your place. The balance of payment is required at least 3 days before the course begins.

Break Free from Overwhelm
An Online Course of 4 Evening Sessions
How would it be to feel more like ‘yourself’ – Steady, solid, grounded; even when life is challenging? You can’t always change your external circumstances but you can change how you respond.
“Absolutely loved the course, it was a great anchor during a stressful few weeks, and I’ve taken some really great tools away from it“
“Many thanks for an amazing course, I could honestly just keep going with this every week. It has been super helpful. “
“So since the circle last week, I’ve had no digestive issues at all. I’d been having a lot of issues for about a month prior to this. I’ve been very taken aback by the power of the group, thank you!”
“I am excited that I can control being more grounded and I am getting results. “
It is possible to free yourself from the ingrained, unhelpful patterns that contribute to feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. You can learn to identify areas where you respond to the world from a place of contraction and stress and you can begin to create the space to breathe and see possibility. This course is for you if you would like to
- experience more joy
- feel more positive and open to possibility
- feel like there’s time
- improve your focus and decision making
- sleep better
Inspired by my personal practice and 10+ years of clinical experience, this course is for anyone who would like to feel more at home in themselves, regardless of the ‘outer weather’.
You will learn and practice techniques to support yourself and stay steady and calm, especially in difficult times. This is not a generic course; it is tailored to the needs of the people who participate. I will use Kinesiology muscle testing to identify the tools that best support the members of the group; you will learn techniques to help you effect lasting positive change in your life. Each session will also offer enhanced self-awareness, deep healing, relaxation and lasting change. We will be a small group so I can pay close attention and offer maximum support. Areas of focus will include
- getting out of your way – how to break patterns of self sabotage so you’re no longer feeding anxiety, frustration and irritability
- healthy self-talk
- learning how to make decisions that support your wellbeing
- simple relaxation practices to promote better sleep and improved digestion
- nutritional support
As with all of my work, personal responsibility is key – no-one can do this for you but if you’re willing to commit to the process you will be fully supported throughout and it is my sincere wish that you will complete this course feeling more empowered and at ease in yourself than when you started.
How it works
We will come together online in a small group , exploring a different theme each week. I will use muscle testing to identify how best to work with the energy of the group. You will learn and practice simple tools that are unique to you and this particular group, at this particular time. No two sessions will be the same….ever! We will use some of the following techniques to address whatever blocks show up in a session:
- EFT (tapping),
- NLP (Neural Linguistic Programming),
- ESR (Emotional Stress Release),
- remedies to support the emotional work
- relaxation techniques
4 evening sessions that will take place on Wednesday evenings 7:00pm – 8:45pm across 4 weeks: 13 Jan, 20th Jan, 27th Jan, 3rd Feb 2021.
The course will be delivered online via zoom. Each session will be recorded and the recording will made available to participants for 2 weeks. Course material will be emailed to participants after each evening session.
The investment for the course is €190. A non-refundable deposit of €50 guarantees your place. The balance of payment is required at least 3 days before the course begins.
