The Haelan Retreat unfolds today in the cradle of Ireland’s Burren, a region in County Clare where the limestone hills meet the sea. A region where the negative ions from the sea water, the water beneath the limestones and the rain water unite with our physical bodies of water and a sense of peace, calming and familiarity begin.
The week of prep for the retreat was met with grey skies and lots of rain. Yesterday there was 40+ mm of rain and at times horizontal with the winds, but even when the days are dark the patterns of hues in the vast expanse somehow warms the heart. And sleeping amidst these fertile hills with its fresh breeze is simply medicinal.
Michele and I have enjoyed a few adventures in our preparations, heart warming community, good food and plenty of laughter.
The sun is rising, the birds are singing, let the retreat begin.
I’d love everyone to be able to experience what we unfold in these retreat weeks in the Burren. The opportunity to hear the call of the inner voice to simply BE all that we really are. Let the merit of what we unfold here this week be for you.
BE present, BE loving, BE kind to yourself this day. If you want to know more about the Ireland retreat in 2020, visit the link below.
I am stoked and grateful to have this amazing human and author Eilis Haden-Storrie share a day with us at historical and sacred sites to touch on the traditional and folklore healing and wellness through the ages.
I’m equally excited and grateful to Dr Michele Chaban to share her wisdom, teachings and life on Haelan - (to make whole) approach to healing and balance.
