Dublin in November, anyone?!
Welcome! Warm warm welcome from us, Nikki and Atieno, the facilitators. And on behalf of the Irish people, I know from experience you are welcome there!
We have lots planned: beach and country hikes, cultural attractions, good food, free time with art-making options, morning yoga, and of course good circle time with us women.
Please send me an email if horseback riding is of interest to you.
Nikki and I will be offering the following themes in our circles: trusting self; opening to Presence.
We can’t wait to spend time with each of you!
Dates – Nov 4-9, 2022.
The weather will not yet have gotten cold, but the crowds of tourists should have thinned. (We also avoided Halloween, for those of you who have kids – or are kid-at-heart Halloween lovers!)
We can take up to nine participants.
Location is an amazing house near Castleknock close to downtown Dublin but with a rural feel. Adjoins a huge park. Has an indoor heated pool!
Note that any profits after we cover expenses will go to www.OnTheInside.Space. (Check it out and jump on to one of the classes for women on the outside.)
One important piece of registration is that this time we are asking you to sign up with a roommate with whom you are willing to share a King bed. There is one triple room, with a Queen and single, to the first three to claim it.
I can help facilitate this if you have any questions. Nikki and I usually room together but of course can help make things work for everyone.
It’s actually already time to put down a deposit, so that we can make sure we get the house.
Please Venmo me $1100 (the total cost) at Atieno-Bird.
Unless the retreat is canceled by us, the deposit is officially nonrefundable. (Although any refunds we would get we’d pass on to you. The very kind woman who owns the house has already said she would refund us in case of covid cancellation.) You should have no trouble finding someone to take your place if you have to drop off for personal reasons, judging from the response we have gotten so far.
This $1100 fee includes the planning/scheduling of a full itinerary of group activities and (lightly facilitated) conversations for the five days (we build in plenty of down time), lodging for the five nights, some snacks and wine for the common kitchen, transport on day trips, and morning yoga. So you will incur some food expenses; there will be at least one up-scale dining experience. If we add an outing destination with a fee we will cover it or make it optional.
Please reach out if you want to talk it over.
Really looking forward to this one!!
Atieno and Nikki
