In this yoga immersion & retreat, we will study of the Healing Force of Nature (Lumen Natura) & the Mystical Paths of Sun & Fire tracing the sacred back to pre-Christian Celtic and Vedic history. Using Yoga Techniques and Practice, Meditations, Mantra and Vitalist Herbalism…we will delve into the many levels of spiritual transformation and illumination. Our retreat includes a potent Summer Solstice Ceremony, daily practices, delicious meals and tours to ancient sites.
Overview: We begin our journey in beautiful Dublin and travel to the rolling hills and mystic lands of West Ireland. Our time together will include story telling, yoga practices, meditations, magical walks, mini tours, delicious food, an optional bike tour of Dublin and personal tours with Treasa, our local healer/druid/guide and Dave, the hidden gem of the Burren. We will spend time diving deep in the studies of Tantric Hatha Yoga and Meditation at the beautiful Burren Yoga Centre, in the magical Burren Hills. Walks into the hills, stone forts and ancient monuments will be included, as well as fields of wildflowers and a shakti-fied cave.

Our itinerary: includes daily yoga practices and meditations on the light of Nature, or Lumen Natura, captured in the wildflowers, rocks, waters and fire, plus ancient practices handed down from the sages, our living tradition of Sri Vidya Tantra, Classical Yoga & Ayurveda. We will also have time to enjoy adventures with modern-day mystics in the heart of this sacred land and have some free time to go into town to shop or listen to the music &/or rest.
