Good Food: Better Health – Wise Women Female Health Weekend

23, 24, 25th October 2020 – An Tobair, Navan, Co Meath

This is an all-women retreat, creating a safe space for sharing and healing. There will be Conscious Cooking Classes, Chi Gong for building and flowing energy, guided Self-Shiatsu, ancient Taoist practices, and simple meditations that will effortlessly improve your female health. There will be time for resting and retreating with wonderful walks through tree-lined avenues.

Through the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine, you can address symptoms of feminine hormonal health without medication, just using the food you eat, gentle exercise, and potent acupressure points.  Some of the symptoms addressed will be insomnia, dizziness, palpitations, loss of libido, painful heavy breasts and periods, weight gain around the middle, dryness, hot flushes, night sweats and mood swings.  You will go home with a toolbox of different practices to balance your body and improve your mood.

In a simple weekend, understand the clear connection between our emotions, the food we choose and how that directly affects our health. I will show you how to prepare fantastically easy dishes that will add to your culinary skills – this is ancient wisdom at work in a modern kitchen. Take time to develop and nurture a loving connection with your body and mind.
