Join Niamh for an immersive mini retreat in the wild country of heart of Ireland to ignite your emotional remembrance through creativity, mythology, psychosomatic transformation and a celebration of Celtic and indigenous culture.
Friday 8th -10th May 2020
In Celtic Calendar Bealtaine marks a very significant time in our biological, seasonal and cosmic rhythms. Traditionally this time was marked by lighting a sacred flame to signify the passing of time from the darkness of the winter into the lightness of the summer. It also marks a significant time in our biological calendar too. As we choose to live more in harmony with the rhythms and seasons of nature we will recognise that this is also a powerful opportunity for inner alchemical change and transformation.
Within ORIGEN we recognise that we are in a very symbiotic relationship with all of natural life. The process of transformation and growth is akin to alchemy. We move through many cycles of internal alchemical change throughout our lives. In order for us to grow emotionally and spiritually we move through constant periods of contraction and expansion. Through this process we extract meaning and inner wisdom in our lives. This is the natural process of internal growth and it is very symbiotic with all of nature.
As we move through our internal emotional processes in life we engage with our internal elements. The elements are very symbolic representation for the stages of growth; This is emotional alchemy. This weekend we will be specifically focusing on the element of fire in personal transformation and how it can be one of the most powerful tool we have to catalyse our personal growth. Transmuting old beliefs, old programs, dense emotions freeing up your Qi. energy and life force so you can access heighten states of potential.
This Mini-Retreat includes 2 x nights shared accomodation in the Ballymclodge Retreat, 1 x evening meal upon arrive, 2 x breakfasts and 1 lunch. (All fresh healthy locally sourced produce).
This retreat is centred around the Bealtaine Fire Ceremony which will take place in Uisneach on 9th May. We will gather in a beautiful sanctuary of Ballymclodge for opening transformational workshops, ceremonies and intention setting followed by a "crafternoon" where we adorn ourselves and dress in traditional mythical costume in preparation for the festival.
This retreat is for those who wish to reconnect with their indigenous heritage and be part of a global celebration of cultural and ancient wisdom. It is for those who wish to experience the power of transformational change working with the element of fire. This gathering will ignite emotional remembrance through transformative workshops, creative arts, storytelling, mythology and Celtic wisdom. This is for the youthful modern mystic who wants to integrate this ancient wisdom in modern context, making it translatable to everyday life.
Last year I was invited to be one of four people in Ireland to light the sacred fire at the Bealtaine Festival in Uisneach. An invitation I did not take lightly and it was such a huge honour to represent the South of Ireland in this celebration. This is a memory that will hold in my heart forever. The intention last year (2019) was to symbolically unite the people from all four corners of Ireland around one fire to celebrate unity, despite our differences in beliefs. This year 2020 the intention is to unite the four corners of the world, inviting people from all different cultures and indigenous backgrounds to come and unite around this fire in the heart centre of Ireland. A place renowned to be the mythical meeting place of the high kings, the fifth provence of Ireland.
