One Day Silent Retreat 

Silence is Golden” are the words that comes to my mind when I think back to my day long Silent Mindfulness Retreat with Una Keeley in September at the Amber Springs Hotel. Set at a really gentle pace, the day held no agenda, “doing” was on pause and simply being was celebrated through each mediation, poem read, meal shared, rest taken and movement made. All the ingredients needed to allow the mind and body to rest, giving permission to allow the inner voice to reflect and move through the ebb and flow of one’s emotions in a very dignified and respectful shared space. 

The learning in the here and now compounded and my own mindfulness practice was refreshed and brought to a deepened level, which I’ve been able to bring more often into my everyday life. I was really grateful that I got the opportunity to spend the day on this Silent Mindfulness Retreat. I would highly recommend the day to anyone who needs some “me time”, along with anyone who wants to deepen their practice at a very personal level. Thank you Una for a really super day.

One Day Silent Retreat

My experience of Una’s Silent Mindfulness Retreat, was a magical treat for my soul, which covered so many forms of practices on the day … From anchoring the mind, to breath-work and working with the senses, to mindful walking in a beautiful setting, and a trip to the fabulous local beach setting. 

The reminder of the pillars of mindfulness were so impactful and calming to the mind. I highly recommend this retreat as a beautiful self care day, that I am so grateful for. Thank you Una

One Day Silent Retreat

I attended the Mindfulness Meditation Silent Retreat on a Sunday in Sept. I had previously attended Una’s fantastic MBSR 8 week course in Mindfulness last year and now I attend the once a month Mindfulness Support Programme. I was a bit anxious about attending the retreat, as I had never attended one before (I had missed the one which was part of the MBSR course). This retreat was so relaxing and enjoyable that I will be keeping my eye out for the next one. We did lots of different types of meditations as well as some relaxing yoga exercises and listened to some lovely poetry which was quite fitting and related to everything we have covered in all the classes. 

I think Una is a wonderful person and has a very calming yet professional approach. I highly recommend Una. Through the use of meditation it has helped me make some very strong decisions in my life and also guided me in a completely different life direction. I now follow my true path in life and only do what I truly want to do. Thank you so much Una, you are an inspiration!”

Gorey School of Art One Day Retreat

I recently took part in the one-day Mindfulness & Creativity retreat at the Gorey School of Art, having previously completed the evening course.  It was an amazing day with a very open and creative group of people; I even got to meet one of the students of another of Una’s classes whom I had been connecting with ‘creatively’ in the course participants’ Facebook Group!  The relaxed environment Una creates really fosters an atmosphere of acceptance and play, which allowed us as a group to ‘let go’ and allow our creativity surface!  I thoroughly enjoyed the vast variety of exercises and approaches to exploring both mindfulness and creativity, from meditation and body scanning to mixed media creative exercises and mindful yoga.  Una provided us with various tools to anchor our awareness in the present, which we can use in our daily lives to continue the practice following on from the course.  Furthermore, I came away with new creative techniques that I’m already exploring and developing further since the course, not to mention lots of new creative buddies!  As ever, a massive thank you to Una, whose expertise and experience in this field are second to none.  The adventure continues!

Gorey School of Art One Day Retreat

Recently I participated in a one-day Mindful Create retreat. Una creates such a safe space for people to become present in themselves and feel relaxed to explore new territory creatively. Through her gentle guidance and focused intuition, her generous and stimulating materials, her imaginative and spontaneous activities the day’s events moved seamlessly and effortlessly. Una is a skillful facilitator who applies such effective resources to the practice of both disciplines. I came away with an understanding and better knowledge of what mindfulness is and gained clarity on how many blocks I stack in the way of my creativity. There was a real sense of non-judgement and support from Una and within the group and I think we all felt nurtured and minded to continue on our journey of awareness and expressing our unique selves. Thank you, Una and Mindful Create.

AFTER YOUR RETREAT

And After your Retreat, why not take a 15 minute Drive out to Cahore pier for a mindful walk around the head and down onto the beautiful sandy beach of Old Bawn. Then stroll back and enjoy refreshments in the Strand Bar overlooking the pier … It’s absolutely Gorgeous … and well worth a visit…!!!
