Receive NYE Retreat (2019/2020)

Yoga, Chi Kung & Cacao Ceremony
3 Days & 3 Nights – 29/12/19 – 01/01/20
Gyreum Ecolodge (Sligo)
Catering by Adriana Ballester

On the 29th of December, 2019, 6 of the most passionate Yoga, Chi Kung, holistic practitioners and culinary artists will gather at the Gyreum Ecolodge in beautiful Sligo for a New Year’s retreat.
The Gyreum’s design mimics that of a cairn or a megalithic burial tomb and is nestled into land rich in Celtic mythology. The sites of great battles between the Tuatha De Danann & the Formorians are within walking distance.
Since its inception Gyreum has grown organically, both in concept and operation, with more and more use of green synergies from geothermal and sunlight heating systems, to recycled rainwater shower facilities.

Retreat description

Arrive into silence, peace and quiet for the body & mind. 

Each morning will begin with a movement practice (e.g. Yoga, Chi Kung, etc.) after which  a hearty and nourishing brunch will be served.

Free time during the day can be spent reading by the open fire, exploring the wonderful surrounding countryside, availing of on-site treatments or taking part in various workshops which will be on offer.

We re-group in the early evening for an evening practice (e.g. Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, etc.) after which a substantial seasonal evening meal will be served.

We will be spend some time in nature during the day on Tuesday 31st December (New Year’s Eve) gathering prayer bundles. We will offer our prayer bundles to the fire that evening during a sacred fire ceremony where we will simultaneously let go of the year just passed and welcome the year to come. A heart-opening cacao ceremony will be followed by the sacred fire ceremony after which we will ring in the New Year with conscious dancing.

Each day will feature a special guest teacher / facilitator. Those confirmed so far include:

Optional workshops and Shiatsu treatment sessions will be available during the day.
