with facilitators Rachel Dempsey & Felicity Ananda (Kirtan)
A Co.Wicklow weekend retreat in May 2020 to experience singing, sisterhood, sustainability, self-care and spirituality. The perfect gift to yourself or a women in your life who needs to nurture herself. This is a weekend eco-retreat for women, full of chanting, harmony songs from around the world, improvisation, chakra toning and healing through the voice all in a beautiful sustainability centre, Sli Na Bande, in Newtownmountkennedy, Co. Wicklow. Our special guest facilitator is Felicity Ananda who will lead sublime Kirtan chanting sessions accompanied by guitar and harmonium, as well as morning yoga to help awaken our physical bodies and ready us to create harmonies together. We will enjoy group harmony singing and chanting, voice and sound healing work, movement & breath work, walks in nature, outdoor hot-tub and home-cooked vegetarian food. As well as voice work and singing Rachel will teach various holistic self-care techniques from the Capacitar
tradition, such as tai chi style movements, head holds, polarity work and mindfulness exercises. You will leave thoroughly uplifted yet profoundly relaxed after a healing weekend of singing and connecting with like minded women. Switch off from daily life and enjoy nature, creative expression, good food and conversation.
