Ireland Yoga Retreat 2017: Light of Nature & Mystic Path of Fire

In this yoga immersion & retreat, June 15-23, we will study of the nature of fire (Agni Vidya) & the Healing Force of Nature (Lumen Natura) tracing the sacred back to pre-Christian Celtic and Vedic history. As we explore the mystical & elemental fire, we will delve into the many levels of spiritual transformation and illumination, using ritual within as well as outside of the body, and rooting experience and theory into daily practice. 

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 hopefully (depending on weather and Mother Nature), fields of wildflowers. The region is known for its otherworldly “Lunar” escapes, the Cliffs of Moher, Saint Brigid’s holy well, and structures predating the Great Pyramids of Egypt.
