Sound Bath Therapy:
In an increasingly busy and stressful life, there is a need to be able to switch off and tune into our self, our body and our mental health through relaxation.
It has been identified by healthcare professionals
that stress is one of the most common underlying causes of illness. The benefits of sound healing occur on a cellular level, rippling out to also impact the physical,
mental, emotional and spiritual layers of the energy system. It can support better sleep, a reduction in
anxiety and stress levels, physical and energetic blocks, and personal development.
Sound sessions in both group and 1:1 settings can provide a safe environment to both experience
deep relaxation and the opportunity to learn how to manage our stress levels more successfully. 1:1
sound sessions are individually tailored to the client making for a unique experience for each person.
Sessions should be booked in advance to ensure availability.

Fr. Michael Rodgers offers a unique catholic mass and take on Celtic Spirituality based on the Creation Model in Glendalough.
The Care for Carers retreats at Tearmann will provide an opportunity to explore and express the difficulties and challenges all carers encounter in their personal and professional lives. There will be time to share and debrief in a safe and sacred space, through unconditional listening and an authentic connection with others who have similar experiences of working and caring deeply for others.
Contemplative practices such as meditation, guided visualisation and reflective writing will be utilised to assist carers to reconnect with their initial heart-felt motivation to care for and alleviate the suffering of others. Self-care and self-compassion are intertwined and assist us in maintaining our emotional and psychological well-being.
Self-compassion is a skill that can be learned and developed, assisting us in gaining perspective of our personal and professional world, and building resilience in these challenging and uncertain times. Time to reset, rest, reflect and walk in the beautiful surroundings of Glendalough with the support of experienced educators/trainers in the field of end- of life and spiritual care.
