"Your liver is the reason, after everything you've been through in life, that you're still alive."
- Anthony William, Medical Medium

Our very special retreat location is set in a private residence with its own exotic 20 acre wild woodland garden on the shores of Bantry Bay, offering beautiful sea views, a waterfall and direct private access to the water. Each morning rise with the sun, meditate and do some gentle yoga and pranayama practices.
Experience a gentle, wholesome, cleanse and detoxification of your liver to reduce its workload and improve how it functions.
Reset you mind, body and soul in a relaxed tranquil setting. Our guided programme will support you to set new intentions for a healthier and happier you. Create a healthy daily routine for wellness and healing that you can continue when you get home.
Imagine swimming in the sea, and floating in clear, still, saltwater.
Forest bathing amongst ancient trees, exploring the surrounding woodland.
Having space to rest, simply sitting quietly listening to the birdsong, with nothing to do.
Rejuvenate in nature, breath fresh air, feel the warmth of the sun on your skin.
3 magical days and 3 restful nights ensconced in a tranquil haven of peace.
The Autumnal Equinox is an optimal time for a reset. During this period of transition, we observe conscious eating habits and cultivate introspection to connect with these supportive energies. It is a time to honour your body, and rekindle the digestive fire (Agni) by eating lighter meals. All of your meals will be prepared with fresh, local, seasonal produce, providing you with optimal nourishment to create clarity and lightness in your mind body physiology. Derive subtle nourishment from your environment as you experience the life force enhancing, five elements in nature, allowing your body and mind to heal and restore as the seasons change.
Our retreats allow for much-needed respite, to mindfully embark on a journey to improve your well-being in many ways, allowing you to return home with a new sense of yourself and the world around you.
A sample of the daily schedule includes Ayurvedic Rituals to deepen your exploration;
Uniquely crafted ayurvedic rejuvenating herbs, oils and self-practices
Daily ‘Dinacharya’ rituals
Satsang for personal reflection
Fire ceremonies include a releasing fire ceremony.
Cleanse and connect with nature, the elements, and the spirit.
Fresh, organic, seasonal foods made with love using local produce.
In the evening you can cosy up by the log fire with your journal. Prepare for an early night of restful sleep with a magical, candlelit Yoga Nidra wrapped in a warm blanket. As your body moves into stillness, a deep feeling of tranquillity and relaxation occurs, you will effortlessly enter a deep restful sleep.

“It is a strange and wonderful fact to be here, walking around in a body,to have a whole world within you and a world at your fingertips outside you. It is an immense privilege, and it is incredible that humans manage to forget the miracle of being here. Rilke said, ‘Being here is so much,’ and it is uncanny how social reality can deaden and numb us so that the mystical wonder of our lives goes totally unnoticed. We are here. We are wildly and dangerously free.”
― John O'Donohue, Irish Mystic, Author: Anam Cara
