Mandala Creative Visioning Retreat 17 - 19 November 2017 (2 nights/3 days )

Lisnavagh House offers the ultimate mix of homeliness and grandeur, making it a most appealing destination for those seeking somewhere unique. I could not imagine a nicer and more relaxed place to do the work we will be doing on this retreat. Having previously hosted retreats in the ancient city of Fez, Morocco, it is nice to be doing this on home soil for a change. Situated on the Carlow/Wicklow border about an hour or so from Dublin, there are striking panoramic views of the Wicklow Hills, Blackstairs Mountains and Mount Leinster beyond the estate’s 600 acres of woods and farmland. Here you will gift yourself with wellness on all levels. 

Join Patricia Fitzgerald for a 2 night retreat at this unique venue. The eve of the 18th November will be a new moon and is a wonderfully powerful time to set intention. During the weekend we will look back with gratitude on all you have accomplished in 2017. Perhaps you have accomplished a lot, perhaps you feel it is a little. Giving gratitude even from the smallest things is so very energetically powerful.

Mandala art is an energetic tool to free your expression and awaken your creativity and vision. Creating mandalas brings about a relaxed mental attitude and frees internal dialogue so that you can be in touch with your own inner self. On this retreat, we will be creating a personal mandala to embody all that you wish to manifest in the coming year of 2018.

Through our mandalas and meditations, we will look at various aspects of our ‘selves’ and come to realise that all we do is connected. Each section of our vision mandala will reflect an aspect of ourselves according to the Feng Shui principles:

  • Wealth & Abundance
  • Admiration & Reputation
  • Relationship & Love
  • Family & Stability
  • Children & Creativity
  • Skill & Wisdom
  • Career & Life Path
  • Travel & Helpful People
  • Health

Working within a circle requires wholeness, it makes you look at the full picture. We begin to get a sense that all is connected, and indeed that all of these parts of our lives are inextricably linked. Helping one, will help the other and so on. There is absolutely no need to be artistic in order to create a mandala. They lie within each and every one of us.

You will return to the outer world transformed, refreshed and rejuvenated and filled with new ideas and focus on where you want to go in your life.

From this retreat you will:

  • Come away with a beautiful personalised vision mandala
  • Reflect on the past year, your achievements, learning, and challenges
  • Set an intention for the next year, name your vision and connect with your purpose
  • Step into the next year with trust and faith in your dreams and desires
  • Gain clarity first and foremost how you want to feel in your life, which in turn leads to what you want to manifest in the physical world.
  • Enjoy reflective meditations to explore & create your vision
  • leave feeling prepared, empowered, motivated and inspired to create an amazing year in 2018.
  • Share, connect with like minded people, have fun and enjoy the creative process in a safe space.
  • Feel energised and connected to yourself and your purpose

Marcus Aurelius quoted: “You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” When we truly get in touch with our true nature, we gain clarity; we are in total peace. Imagine you are sitting in the eye of hurricane, you feel the sense of peace, stillness and calmness. If you begin to move away from the centre, everything will fall back into chaos and distortion. And when you can get to the place of your true centre, you begin to gain true perception.
