The Vitality Retreat: February + October
The 3-day retreat invites you to unwind in the serene settings of Lisvanagh country estate in Carlow (just over an hours drive from Dublin).
We will revitalise the body to its natural capacity for healing, learn from its wisdom, align with our true nature and develop greater self-awareness.
Opening the body we open the mind.
Through the body, we will experience space, stillness, e-motion, sensation, vibration and bliss.
