Receiving Danu’s Blessing – Sound Healing and Therapies and Retreat in the Sacred West of Ireland

This is a very, very special invitation for you to come to what surely is: the Great Goddess Danu event of the decade!

The weekend that I am inviting you to in this blog post, runs from Aug 23 at 6 PM – Aug 25 at 4 PM, and it’s going to be held at The White Hall, Keash, nr Ballymote, Co. Sligo, in the beautiful, mystical West of Ireland.

Danu is the Great Mother of the Tuatha De Danaan, the People of the Goddess Danu, and she is the Mother of their Gods. In Her you can find vibrant insights as to the deep spiritual meaning of Mothering – a key issue for all of us – and about nurture, healing and personal growth. Danu wants us to succeed. She sends her people forth willing them to manifest their destiny, their passion ignited, their creativity expressed.

Hurry. There are only nine places left. This residential healing empowering event is run by Claire Louise Knifton, and there’s details how to contact Claire to book, at the foot of this blog post.

The spiritual and healing methods offered to meeting and gaining deep understanding and connection with Great Goddess Danu include the following:

Vision Meeting in one of the Carrowkeel Megalithic Tombs offered by myself, Michael Conneely;

Clearing work: clearing blocks to your greatness and your receiving, with my wife Maggie Pashley;

Family constellation and dance work with Claire, and therapeutic artwork with Tracey Jean Yappa.

And there’s the deepest and most powerful sound healing from Andy Taylor White.

So, this weekend is truly spectacular, inspirational, visionary, magical and healing, all held amid the beautiful mystical landscape of the sacred West of Ireland.

Meet Great Goddess Danu, Mother of the Tuatha De Danaan. Experience the sacred energy of the Mother. Heal wounds to Mothering. Share in the inspired, magical and creative energy of her People.

We will also work with our ancestral lineage, inviting healing for any entanglements affecting us now, clearing blocks to receiving this.

There’s two trips out to site visits, as well as the wonderful experiences in the Hall:

On the Saturday, we take a sacred guided tour to the megalithic site of Carrowkeel to hold a vision meeting within the tomb to meet Great Goddess Danu.
And we relax afterwards, with a beautiful Soundbath.
Then we free ourselves with movement and dance, exploring our potential for growth and freedom, as an individual or as part of a group, and our expansion into ​joy and harmony through spirit teaching.

And on Sunday morning take a silent mindful walk to Keash caves for personal contemplation and recalibration of our life’s journey creating a unique and personal totem of Danu, of what we have learned about mothering and about ourselves, and what we have healed, all through connection to this sacred landscape.

And lastly, to deepen and consolidate our vision and healing work, we use artwork to clarify and record our vision work and our healing.
