The Beauty of Clare Will Renew Your Soul
After looking for months that ran into years, we have found the perfect place to host a women's retreat in Ireland. We will spend our week in Doolin, a fascinating village located on the edge of the dramatic Atlantic coast. The County of Clare, where we will spend our afternoons "adventuring" is beautiful and serene. Photographers, writers, painters, poets, gardeners, historians, thinkers and dreamers...all.....will be pleased.
I have had calls asking, "If we want to sleep in.....will that be OK?" The answer to that question is this, "You will be encouraged to do whatever you need to refresh your spirit." If you need to walk alone along a silent path ....we will find you that path. If you want to sit in a corner for hours and listen to music and just observe .......we will find you that corner, a comfortable chair and delightful musicians. We are here to help your vacation be just for you.
We have written a program that is designed to refresh, renew, resolve and replenish YOU. Our daily adventures are designed for this purpose. Our morning curriculum has this in mind. And, remember you will spend your days surrounded by like-spirits. Yet, if you need to be alone we will help you in any way we can. In order to accomplish serenity, sometimes we do need to have time alone, to have times when we are quiet and to be in an uncluttered space where we can think clearly and do mediatative thinking. County Clare, serene and undeveloped, is perfect for the goals of our retreat. Here you will enjoy plenty of fresh air,a beautiful wide-open countryside, and marvelouus opportunties to sit by the seashore and enjoy!
A Gaelic Blessing, circa 1150 *
Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and Stars pour their healing light on you.
Deep peace of the Light of the World to you.
