Fancy a two-day mindfulness retreat in the heart of Connemara? The elegant and charming four-star Lough Inagh Lodge is facilitating a special mindful, self compassion getaway in the peaceful surrounds of Connemara's Twelve Bens.
Hosted by Caitriona Nic Ghiollaphadraig, the two or three day workshop will take place from November 7 to 9.
Guests will gather at the hotel on Tuesday evening for dinner, followed by an introduction to MSC, which is the first step in emotional healing - being able to turn toward and acknowledge difficult thoughts and feelings, such as inadequacy, sadness, anger, confusion, with a spirit of openness and curiosity.
On the following two days, two sessions will be held each day, including a guided walk to the pilgrimage site at Mámean, guided meditation, and walking meditation techniques. Other sessions will include mindfulness breathing practice, loving kindness practice, self compassion, mindful eating, compassionate body scan, giving and receiving compassion, and how to use MSC to handle difficult situations.
Meals, including breakfast, light lunch and dinner are included in the package, with after dinner entertainment in the hotel bar.
The three day packages costs €530.00 per person; two day package is €415.00 per person.
