About the Event

Welcoming the turn of the seasons with movement, breath, cacao and stillness - accompanied by poetry and original songs - co-created by Débora Gonçalves, Lena Younes and Lucy Wylde.

Join us as we weave our favourite modalities into a half day retreat - a journey of embodiment and presence, supported by ceremonial cacao and our own creative offerings.

'Whispers of Summer' will lead you through...

  • 'Shake the Dust' flow 
  • Full Transformational Breath Session
  • Ceremonial Cacao
  • Yin Yoga & Relaxation
  • Poetry & Original Songs
  • Time in Nature

This workshop is open to all - you do not need experience in any of the modalities we offer - and is intended as a personal journey within as well as a collective celebration as we prepare for the more vibrant part of the year.

This particular edition of 'Whispers of Summer' features special guest Lucy Wylde to hold the cacao ceremony, support us in the breath session and share her beautiful music with us.

€35-65 sliding scale. Booking essential as spaces are limited.

...a little more about the different practices:

Shake the Dust 

This is a transformative and embodied practice of the bodyheartmind.

Through a guided poetic universe with a theme related to each practice we journey between perpetual movement, rest, release and free movement.

For Whispers of Summer there’s the invitation to move freely - tapping into gentle containers and allowing the body to receive the warmth of the sun.

Transformational Breath

Breath is life and forms the heart of yoga and many other somatic practices. The way we breathe reflects the way we live - so when we learn how to breathe differently, we can create transformation in other parts of our experience.

Transformational Breath is a powerful self-healing tool which combines full conscious connected diaphragmatic breathing with movement, sound and hands-on facilitation in order to help us integrate on a physical, emotional and mental level.

'Whispers of Summer' will feature a full dyadic breath session - beginning with eye gazing as we connect with each other and ourselves... and breathe.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga works with the body's connective tissues - fascia, tendons and ligaments - as well as the meridians of traditional Chinese medicine to create change through acceptance and letting go. Poses are held for several minutes at a time and are all on the floor, with or without the use of props depending on your needs.

Yin is a very personal practice and you will be encouraged to listen to your body and your intuition.

This particular Yin Yoga practice will be accompanied by poetry (Debora) and original songs (by Lena & Lucy), taking you on a journey into your inner landscape of being.

Golden Web Retreat
