Why Meditate?

These are some of the reasons why you may like to begin a regular meditation practice:

  • Brings clarity of mind
  • Promotes good health and happiness
  • Can reduce stress and stress related ailments and disease such as high blood pressure, heart disease and cancers.
  • Improves concentration
  • Gives perspective in difficult times
  • Provides a path to intuitive knowledge or a universal intelligence
  • Trains us to be the witness

Practice Tips

  • To meditate you must first have the desire to meditate.
  • Prepare a “sacred” space and make time for your practice.
  • Get the right seated position, be warm and comfortable.
  • You must make sure that you won’t be disturbed. But if it happens, try not to get frustrated … smile and be grateful for having got as far as you did. There is always later in the day or tomorrow.
  • Most importantly, have no expectations. Every day is different.

Meditation to ‘Mind Your Mind’

These were a series of meditation sessions that I ran in 2018/2019 giving you practical tips to develop your own regular meditation practice. They started with some gentle Yoga stretches to prepare your body for sitting quietly which is the first step in any meditation practice. There are well defined steps to develop the discipline to bring you to that quiet space and we explored them in these sessions.

Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and to improve the immunity of the body and the mind. Practiced regularly (15-20 minutes per day) it can bring greater clarity to your thinking and help you to gain perspective.

We will be adding, posts to our blog over time which might be helpful to you on your meditation journey.

Equinox on the Shannon Estuary.

Just 2 days away from the Autumn Equinox when the sun is over the equator and we have equal hours of day and night.

Bountiful Rosa rugosa... The large rose hips a treat for the birds and bursting with vitamin C if us humans would take the time to harvest some now and store in some honey for a rose hip tea some fine cold winter's evening ☕🔥⁣

One of the nice things about camping, is the gathering at the campfire. You can still do that in your own family groups.🏕️
What's your favourite campfire treat?⁣ 🔥

Getting time to explore our 2km limit with calm seas and blue skies. Brent Geese still hanging on to their winter grounds, Whimbrels coming through in small flocks and after some time, 2 Bottlenose dolphins came on the scene. ⁣
My camera is not good enough to capture these beautiful creatures but the @shannon_dolphin_project has some great stories. ⁣
This strange time has had some positives for us. We've slowed down and that's been nice. Take care and #staysafe ⁣

'Gallarus' style bender sauna being dismantled by Lughadh. First edition built Santosa Yoga camp 2011, second edition around 2013?
Many bodies sweated in this space, many laughs were had, beautiful songs sang, many shrieks during cold water showers. many star-gazing evenings.
We have time now for some projects. Watch this space.
Hope to see some of you this summer. Hope you are all keeping safe 🌿🐞🦋🐛🐝

Our new website is now live. We've tried to keep the same simplicity and natural feel of the old site. There were lots of pages that were probably never explored but we've tried to structure it a bit better now. Retreats are bookable now under the events. We're still tweaking it but what do you think so far?

This time 2 years ago I recorded a meditation for the 'Breathe' cd with #lukabloom. Luka recorded a beautiful piece, called #mindyourownmind It was a surreal experience and one I cherish. It came about through workshops I ran that year, called Mind your Mind which focused on establishing a steady regular meditation practice. .
