We’re so excited about April’s new workshop on Friday 10th August; Intuition for Health, Business & Life. It’s about accessing our own intuition that may have got lost in the mayhem of everyday living. We all have this six sense of knowing what’s right for us (and what’s not), but modern living encourages a more mental approach to figuring things out and the value of tuning in to our intuition is at best overlooked and at worst scorned. April has programmed Intuition for Health, Business & Life workshop to coincide with the imminent New Moon solar eclipse to enhance our connection with nature and therefore ourselves.
The workshop takes place up in the hills in Caheragh above Skibbereen in West Cork on Friday 10th August from 10.30am until 4.30pm. All notes, a workbook and an organic lunch is included.

'2018’s theme is Alchemy – the art and act of transformation. We believe that every person that joins us in celebration has the power to positively affect the lives of others and transform the world they live in year round. Simple acts of kindness, new viewpoints and discussions, a scintillating conversation or an inspiringly bonkers outfit – we’ve seen great stories evolve out of moments shared over those three days and nights. We invite everyone to interpret what Alchemy means to you, be it through your mindset, your energy, your costume or your ideas. Be the change you want to see.'
