Eat Sleep Breathe Create - Connecting people with themselves, each other and with nature.

Activities

Meditation & Mindfulness

For those who wish to experience a sense of space and calm while exploring mindfulness practice carefully curated to nourish you, gently guiding you in ancient meditation practices that invite stillness, deep compassion and care for your mind and body. We embrace periods of blissful silence so that you can come fully into the present moment and the extraordinary beauty of this peaceful setting without distraction. The invitation is to let go of ‘doing’ and to allow yourself to simply ‘be’. 

Forest Bathing

Forest bathing is something we all need in our lives and can be enjoyed by all age groups with good mobility. Forest bathing is an experience offered to people who can de stress simply by going into the woods for a period of time and with guidance it can benefit our health greatly. Recent scientific studies in Japan have proven that forest bathing reduces our blood pressure, boosts our immune system, improves our sleep patterns and lowers our cholesterol.

Somatics & Dance

Somatics is a movement therapy, a way of re-educating the way our brain senses and moves the muscles. It is an incredibly subtle but effective way of working with the body. Often in our minds we link dance with the subjective ideals of beauty, performance, sensuality, an art form, something to gift to others and the World. It can be, all of these things, but of equal and non-comparable value is the power of dance as a medium of individual expression, a place of freedom, presence and ultimately of joy. 

Sound Bathing

Explore a deeply-immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture your mind and body. The Brick Barn at Lisnavagh is a surrounded by nature and stillness that allows you to absorb the vibrations.

Yoga Philosophy

An opportunity to immerse yourself more deeply into the yogic life by exploring some of the philosophy and practices of traditional hatha yoga. Experience personal insight through guided discussion and reflection, and become conscious of how to apply the philosophy to your practice. 

Bee Therapy 

Including sleeping above the bees - An introduction to this new phenomenon with striking effects. It has been proven to those who sleep above bee hives that the best results were obtained with the upper respiratory illnesses.

Cacao Ceremony

A heart-opening sensation that ceremonial cacao generates, and the production process the cacao bean goes through to generate it, are the main reasons particular types of cacao is labeled “ceremonial”.

Live Music
