Awakening your Senses in the Magic of the Ring of Gullion

About

Your journey in ‘awakening your senses’ begins on Slieve Gullion Mountain. This sacred mountain is a mythological sleeping giant where you will rest, reconnect and re-energise over the next 2.5 hours. Forest Therapy Guide & Meditation Coach, Ann Ward, will support your forest immersion through guided mindfulness meditation - she will offer you creative invitations to deepen your connection with nature. You will begin to gently slow down and disconnect from your busy life, while awakening your senses. A perfect chance for a digital detox and to relieve techno-stress.

Forest Bathing is an evidence-based wellness practice which originated in Japan in the 1980’s as a stress prevention intervention. 2 hours in the forest boosts your immunity for up to 10 days. https://www.xhale.biz/shinrin-yoku-forest-bathing/ Your forest experience will end with a tea ceremony with warm foraged elderberry cordial which is full of vitamin C and home made short bread.

We will travel a short distance to Meigh village to Ann’s quirky, creative healing space, a cosy 2nd World War hut. Relax and continue to awaken you senses over a locally produced, sensory, seasonal three-course lunch: Spring Greens Soup with barley, spinach, kale, celery and scallion & home- baked wheaten bread; a vegetarian salad with local goats cheese, walnuts with a beetroot and mint chutney. And for dessert, apple and cinnamon tart served with cream/ custard with tea/coffee, including herbal teas. Recipes for the bread & soup will be available to take home. After lunch we will explore how you can bring the practice of forest bathing/nature connection into your everyday life. We will gently end the event with a guided meditation, taking the gift of mindfulness home with you.
