Weekend Retreat Cork

Join us for another series of Weekend Retreats in Cork!

Weekend retreat, Cork, Michelle A. Hardwick, Release...Peace, Mallow, Cork, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness retreat facilitated by Michelle A. Hardwick of Release...PeaceLife is filled with a variety of stresses, challenges and distractions. So easily we can get side-tracked with work and family routines that we forget to (or more importantly don’t) schedule time off for ourselves. The more stressed we become, the more difficult it is to pull away. The harder we work, the more we start to come out of balance – not only mentally, but physically, emotionally and spiritually. As our “to do list” increases, the more we get lost.

Attending a weekend retreat gives us chance to detach and get away from work, TV, wifi or our cell phones – and find ourselves again.

Benefits of a Weekend Retreat

Retreats can be enjoyed by everyone at different stages in their lives and are a gift we give to ourselves.

When we take time out, we take care of ourselves and take a step back. Traveling away from home means everything (that needs to be done) will be done by others.  We can sit down, enjoy meal without having to buy, plan, prepare (nor tidy up afterwards!); bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and tidy; breakfast is prepared and served to us; even a variety of delicious tasty snacks and teas/coffee await our taste buds.  All we need to do is sample and enjoy!

A weekend retreat is also a perfect opportunity to also meet new friends and join a community.

Weekend Retreat Cork: Topics

Our retreat is open to anyone interested in personal growth, and no prior experience is necessary. In a safe environment over two days, we’ll experience a variety of ways to help develop new beliefs about yourself. During the weekend there is space for self-awareness, self-nurturing and self-discovery helping you to experience life differently.

Weekend retreat, Cork, Michelle A. Hardwick, Release...Peace, Mallow, Cork, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness retreat facilitated by Michelle A. Hardwick of Release...PeaceThis weekend retreat is not a workshop. It includes an opportunity to engage in deep personal work through experiential activities in group format. Our retreat includes group discussion, the sharing of group wisdom, as well as meditation and relaxation experiences – all designed to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself.

In addition, you’ll share in deep connections with facilitators and retreaters helping you to become more empowered and feel supported physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You will also be supported by others on a similar journey.

Throughout our weekend we use a range of potent tools to:

  • increase your courage to take new risks
  • allow you to understand the nature of a variety of burdens or encumbrances of the past
  • help heal and let go of old hurts or old ways of relating
  • enhance your inner strength and self-trust

The topics throughout this weekend are focused toward establishing a firm foundation on which we can build (or rebuild) ourselves, as well as:

  • Weekend Retreat Cork with Michelle A. Hardwick of Release...PeaceAn understanding of grounding, belonging and being grounded
  • Discovering (or rediscovering) our self-confidence,
  • Enhancing our self-esteem and self-worth
  • Creating our inner stability, security and safety
  • Developing and enhancing our happiness
  • Exploring the root causes of loneliness, depression or people-pleasing tendencies
  • Learn more about feelings of negativity and/or addictive behaviours

Be Prepared for Change

These Weekend Retreats in Cork are transformative, inspirational, and pragmatic. Michelle creates an atmosphere that is supportive, safe to share and discuss. The wisdom in the group, the honesty, the amazing minds working together all offer a powerful gift of investigation and examination – unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
