Mindfulness New Year Unplugged Retreat
Join us for our New Year Retreat in the beautiful grounds of Maheramore, Co. Wicklow. This is a retreat with some workshop elements, is based in the beautiful grounds of the Bobbio retreat centre in Maheramore Co. Wicklow, right beside the sea. All the food is vegetarian and cooked to work on and energise the major organs in the body. The day will be a mixture of mindfulness, meditation, silence in the mornings, walks, rest, healthy food, with a special emphasis on ritual designed to let go of the year and welcoming in and setting our intentions for the New Year. Energy healing and bodywork will be available at a reduced cost during the retreat.
"My wife and I really enjoyed John’s recent mindfulness and meditation retreat in Wicklow. This is not my first time attending one of John’s retreats and won’t be my last. He is a great teacher and facilitator and the food, they don’t tell you enough about the food, it’s just fantastic. Well done Joe, what a treat. John is not just a very good facilitator though, he is also a very good teacher. His 25 years’ experience as a teacher and meditator comes from him very naturally. For instance, I welcomed his distinction between ‘Mindfulness, Meditation and Contemplation’. As he explained, with Mindfulness you are developing your observation of yourself, others and the world around you. With Meditation you are letting go of the habitual thoughts and feelings, moving from thinking to sensing, from head into connecting with the heart. And with Contemplation you are investigating at a deeper level, listening into yourself and your underlying patterns, while also connecting into to something other than yourself. I look forward to the next one.” Dr. Ed Kelly
