Tending the Wild – An immersive wild food and medicine journey on the Wild Atlantic way

April 8 - April 13
Foraging break in Donegal

With Lucy O’Hagan

Follow the path of your ancestors and learn how to gather and process wild foods and medicines from coast to forest, river to field and all the hedgerows along the edges.

Join ethnobotanist and ancestral skills teacher Lucy O’Hagan on this 5 day journey to explore our inner and outer nature. We will rewild our minds and bodies as we explore a new environment from which to harvest nature’s bounty each day. You will learn how to safely identify and sustainably forage from a range of plants, trees, fungi, seaweed & lichens. Autumn is perhaps one of the most exciting times to be a forager. The abundance is overwhelming as the fruits of the year ripen, the nuts fall to the forest floor, the roots swell with medicine and the fungi burst through the carpeted woodland. Our ancestors surely would have filled their stores in preparation for the long wir ahead. So too you will fill your basket and process plants into salve, syrup, vinegar and pickles to take away with you.

Family Constellations Facilitator Training

8 module facilitator training with Róisín Fallon

Training as a family constellations facilitator will open up your life fully and authentically. It is a deep self-experience on one hand, while on the other hand transmitting all the basic theoretical and practical principles of Bert Hellinger’s healing work.
Setting this residential training in the beautiful hills of Donegal and Immersing the group fully in the elements and the holding of the land will further enhance the journey.

In this safe space we can look deeper into our own patterns and our learnt dynamics and entanglements, and open up to see them through a systemic lens. Moving through this learning, we can then bring this powerful healing work back to our families and communities.
