Align with the Seasons: Samhain
Nov 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This Samhain, Roseleen & Ellie invite you to join them to mark this occasion and turning point in the cycle of the year.

According to the ancient culture of this land, Samhain is the end of the year, New years as such and the last gasp of summer…….. a time of release; a time to let go of all unwanted baggage, fears and attitudes, just as the trees let go of their leaves.

We live in a busy world, constantly on the go never being able to find the time to just be. Thisevening is an opportunity to breath, to be,to connect and create timeout for yourself to step away and switch off from the world and come back to your soul.

So let’s join in circle and welcome the energies of Samhain.We will be guiding you through 2 healing meditations as well as group discussions and meeting like minded people.

We invite you to join us in this especially poignant time for planting new seeds as we take time to pause, discover and plant the qualities we wish to cultivate within. It is in the darkness and stillness that seeds are planted, nurtured, cared for and left to grow.

Date : Tuesday 1st November
Time: 7-9pm
Location:Blackrock Village. Directions are available here: http://thexhale.ie/
Investment €25 (no previous experience needed)

Limited places available so please book your place.

Mindfulness, Meditation & Yoga Weekend Retreats



Urban retreat, Blackrock Village
Dec 3 @ 10:00 am – Dec 4 @ 5:00 pm
Urban retreat, Blackrock Village

“Without darkness, nothing comes to birth; as without light, nothing flowers” – May Sarton

As we begin to move toward the changing of the seasons (Winter Solstice 21st Dec), nature is at its darkest and the earth is in a state of rest and renewal. Solstice means ‘to stand still’ and we too can feel the need for a quiet space to reflect and even hibernate.

Words will never do justice for what can be experienced, released and welcomed in when we gather in circle for healing as it’s pure magic. However, here’s an idea of what you will go home with:

– Feeling clear, calm, centred and inspired.
– A spring in your step as you re-ignite the light, courage and aliveness within you
– A deep sense of well being as you refuel yourself and your own energy
– A blossoming and deepening of your connection to yourself
– An expansion of the energy deep within your heart
– A clear vision of how to integrate all that you’ll learn into your everyday life
– Practical tools to bring the essence of the retreat into your life
– Beautiful heart centred rituals to enrich your daily life
– Feeling focused, present and connected to something greater than yourself – aligning your spirit to your life
– Space to connect with and learn from two experienced teachers with over 20 years experience between them.
– Recording of some of the tailored made healing meditations used during this weekend
– A workbook full of your ideas, visions, values and intentions for the year ahead

This retreat is an invitation:
– to nourish and tend to your body and soul
– to explore your inner and outer world away from and before we are drawn into the hustle and bustle of shopping centres and the stress and obligations of the Christmas rush
– an opportunity for reflection and self-discovery as we stop and pause for a moment,
– to revisit the year before we step into 2017,
– to sit with what has been and what is to come,
– to listen to the whisper of what wants to be born within at this time of returning light.

When we really give ourselves permission to take this pause, we can deal with the frenzied pace of Christmas, feelings of being out of sync, being lost or racing too fast in a much healthier way. This reflection time also helps us to be present and grounded so we can move forward with confidence and clarity as we greet 2017 in the weeks to come.

The Urban Retreat offers a flexible combination of healing practices, meditations, mindfulness, life coaching exercises, energy work, workshop-style activities, and personal development work. We will hold an open and safe space where you will have the opportunity to share, reflect and move inward…… The pace during the retreat will be purposefully relaxed and is suitable for anyone who is open to self reflection. Everyone is welcome.

Date: Sat & Sun 4th & 5th December 2016
Location: 7 Carysfort Avenue (above GSM), Blackrock Village
Time: 10am-5pm
Investment: €195 early bird to 4th November (€225 after 4th Nov) €100 deposit secures a place. Email me at Ellie@xhale.ie to book your place.

Reiki level 2
Jan 7 – Jan 8 all-day

Reiki Level II was a beautiful weekend of like minded friends sharing a lovely atmostphere, the ultimate treat! the difference between my practice from Level I to Level II is really tangible and I found it really worthwhile in terms of self development. Marie

Went back to Ellen for Reiki Level 2 having done Level 1 with her a few months ago. I had high expectations for the weekend and I wasn’t disappointed. I can’t recommend it enough. Ellen creates a lovely relaxed atmosphere where you can ask questions at every stage. She provided really useful manuals and allows plenty of time to practise what she taught us and ask any questions we had. Can’t wait to use all I have learnt!! Paula

I always enjoy Ellie’s workshops. Ellie’s is a wonderful tutor and has always been there to guide, support and encourage me. She is a true inspiration. I am so glad to have met her. Thank you Ellie.

Judgement and acceptance

Mindfulness is the practice of coming to the present moment, with full acceptance and non judgement. In our mindfulness practice we continuously come to the present moment. Why? Well it’s the only moment that we have. The future is but
