Mary said, “Know when to retreat and when to live. When you retreat be silent and die to yourself, so that you might be alive in the Spirit. When you live, be alive and vibrant, and rejoice each day in the presence of the Divine -Gospel of Mary Magdalene, (v100) Gnostic Gospels
Those who have done a retreat in the past need neither explanation nor encouragement – the benefits are simply phenomenal (in the true sense of the word!) For those who have never experienced it a retreat is a major growth point on the path; a safe place and time to explore who and what you really are away from the madness of the daily grind.
This retreat will include an informative talk by the owner of Gouganne Barra Hotel, outlining the history and interesting anecdotes on the hotel. Neil is full of knowledge on the area and hotel and this is the first time he will address the group in this nature.
Also, for the first time, there will be head and shoulder massages on offer at a nominal extra fee. As well as a pop-up surprise guest.
The retreat will be co-hosted by Mary McCarthy, Aideen O’Brien, Colm McGowan, and, subject to demand, Fiona Briggs will travel out for a couple of days to present a mini-workshop on The Art of Building Lasting Relationships.
As always there will be time for stillness and introspection. Those who want specific topics covered are welcome to e mail Mary McCarthy prior to the retreat and these will be included in the lectures. If you would like to contribute to any of the sessions please contact Mary to arrange such.
Please bring a cushion /yoga mat, note book, torch and heavy-weather clothing as well as any book that you have found inspiring.
There are only a few rooms available so timeous booking is necessary.
It is helpful to focus on stillness, in your daily life, as much as possible for a few days prior to the retreat.
As always there is an early bird discount

I don't know the right words to say something better about Rod Briggs' Seminars, Courses and Retreats: I've tried just a few of them, and I am A-M-A-Z-E-D by every single phrase, concept and detail. I said in the past that it did MORE than changing my life, that it surprised me with the deep understanding it gave me: well, it did that for me again, and more - limitless possibilities awaiting in a boundless, pure, authentic, loving World. Just THANK YOU for your Work, Rod; THANK YOU for having changed this week in a Work of Art, a Masterpiece - Luca Poli
