CACAO CEREMONY AND SOUND RELAXATION

Sunday 24th of November @ 4pm-6 pm

Ceremonial grade cacao is a high vibrational superfood, loaded with antioxidants, magnesium & minerals which flood the body with nutrition, but it also has molecules (anandamide & phenylethylamine) which are natures' own 'anti-depressants' that release feelings of love and bliss that people often experience from cacao. This cacao is a safe ally to help deepen your meditation experience and also deepen your connection with yourself.

Once we have shared the cacao, Karen will lead a short meditation to help you settle into your space, before Kasia will bring the group through a beautiful sound relaxation using singing bowls and gongs.

Sound is a powerful healer and just by listening to these sounds, your brain can easily move to the Theta state which can awaken more awareness, intuition and bring more balance and harmony into your life.

Cost: €35

EMBODYING CONSCIOUS CONNECTION 

14th of December 2pm-6pm 

“Touch comes before sight before the speech. It is the first language and the last, and it always tells the truth.”

Margaret Atwood.

We long to weave meaningful connections into our lives. Conscious Touch brings an opportunity to transform that longing into a sense of belonging. Human Touch has the power to fill us with a sense of deep wellbeing. When we Touch, we experience an authentic, embodied the understanding that we are not separate.

We live in an era of technology and instant connections, yet many feel isolated and out of Touch. The result is a society of Touch hungry people who feel increasingly uncomfortable reaching out to one another in physically meaningful ways.

Giving and receiving conscious Touch builds trust and resilience within relationships. It is vital to develop respectful and appropriate boundaries while also learning to allow the Touch that nurtures our health, relationships and our spirits.

This introductory half-day workshop teaches :

  • Visualisation meditation techniques 
  • Movement practices for the embodiment
  • Practical ways to receive and offer conscious Touch
  • Techniques for voicing your boundaries with others 

Practising Conscious Touch will help you:

  • Enliven your senses
  • Feel more comfortable in your own skin
  • Awaken and embody the loving, empathic presence
  • Experience the restorative power of being held
  • Stop, listen and communicate your needs
  • Receive the gift of conscious Touch
  • Enrich your relationships
