Summertime in Ireland. Retreats starting next week at the Nano Nagle Birthplace. Nano Nagle Birthplace, Ballygriffin, Mallow, Co. Cork is a centre for Heritage, Spirituality and Ecology. Learning to rescue ourselves from our sense of separation and isolation through connecting and working with natural systems forms a major part of the ethos of this place.
We will practice yoga asanas, adjusted to suit everyone who comes, pranayama, meditation and yoga nidra. After lunch, we will gather at the silver ball of the world and when we see our reflections, we will become aware that we were here at the very beginning. The chemicals – hydrogen and oxygen, the water which make up your body – were those which emerged in that first Big Bang.As we reflect on our evolution from the first “flaring forth” to the present day, we will walk around the Cosmic Walk and stop at each sculpture. This meditative time will inspire us to connect to our own creativity and we will write or draw in response. The final meditation will lead to a time for discussion.
