Warm wishes – with the hope also of warmer weather! –

Embodied Presence – The Wisdom of Rest – a weekend 5 rhythms workshop with Caitríona Nic Ghiollaphádraig
If resting was as important as activity we would all be more at peace with ourselves. We would all prioritise being good to ourselves.  Shifting life-long patterns of going, going, going can be a one step forward two steps backward dance, yet giving ourselves time to deeply rest, and embody stillness can improve our health and well-being.

In this workshop, we will move towards rest over and over, as we use the wisdom of the 5 rhythms to guide us towards the art of conscious relaxation.

When: Sat 26th & Sun. 27th May 2018. 10.00 – 5.00 both days.
Where: The Granary, Bessborough
Cost:     €75


Learning to listen to the body – an Introduction to Rosen Method Bodywork - morning workshop with Íde O'Carroll.
Experience this unique path to physical and emotional well-being through embodied self-awareness. Discover the points of holding in the body, where tension resides.  Begin to sense the body’s response when attention is paid to these points of holding.
In Rosen Method Bodywork, healing comes from within ourselves, supported by the practitioner’s touch, words and presence.
Rosen Method Bodywork (RMB) involves gentle, direct touch to:
-          Relax muscle tension and chronic holding
-          Increase flexibility and vitality
-          Deepen physical and emotional awareness
For further information see: www.rosenmethodopencenter.com
The session will begin with an introduction to Rosen Method Bodywork followed by a demonstration and group discussion.

When: Saturday 9th June, 2018. 11.00 - 1.00 p.m.
Where: SHEP Centre, Ballincollig
Cost: €10
