Breathe Easy

A relaxing week in the garden, on the farm and in the landscapes of West Cork

We start the day with some easy, relaxing stretches. After a healthy, nourishing breakfast we spend the mornings on the farm and in the garden, engaging in relaxing and rewarding activities like baking bread and making cheeses from fresh hand-milked goats milk, preparing our own individual tea mixtures with fresh herbs straight the garden and other gratifying land and nature based activities. Short guided outdoors meditations connect us with soil, plants and animals.

After a hearty lunch, prepared together, from ingredients, picked fresh from the garden, we will continue our day by exploring the mountains, the coast and some of the enigmatic prehistoric stone monuments in the area.

The evenings can be spent by the fire or learning and practising Irish set dancing.

Among us.
A week for MEN only

with Gerd Neubeck

Walking and meditation will be an essential part of the week. Immersing ourselves in the power of nature and engaging with challenging landscapes, here in West Cork, we want to explore how we function in this world.

By experiencing other perspectives and ways of life, we hope to get hints and ideas as to where our own personal journey might lead us.

In a circle of men we want to find inspiration for our own lives.
Can be arranged for groups of 8.


Walking & Meditation/Quiet Days at the end of the year

A relaxing time around the end of the year with meditation, sitting at the fire, drinking tea and going for walks in the mountains and at the sea if the weather permits.
