These home retreat collections are gifts of radical self love, discovery, and wHolistic wellBEing for the mind, body and spirit. Based on the Earth’s natural cycles and seasons within the framework of the Celtic wheel of the year, and drawing on aspects of Niamh’s residential retreat programs, The heART of Ritual MOONCARDS™and MOONWHEEL™, and BIOPHILIA Mentorship™ program, her home retreat collections beautifully assist you to remember, reconnect, reclaim, and re-embody your natural state of Divine BEing. It is the ultimate expression of restorative time, the opportunity to slow down, to nourish and nurture on all levels, and to do so in a way that respectfully honors both this planet and yourSelf, as ONE.
Each of these unique handcrafted collections represent a bond and trust in the wild and natural world, one that is deeply rooted in sustainable ritual and living ceremony. Working with native ingredients to enhance your connection with the land, each collection that you receive contains mindfully curated offerings from all five areas of her ‘Stone Mad Healing Star’ - ALCHEMY, APOTHECARY, SkinFOOD, SoulFOOD, and CEREMONY & RITUAL. Each collection is complemented by an extensive selection of audio and written files which include guided meditations, visualizations, mindfulness exercises, wisdom offerings, tutorials, wild seasonal recipes, insights, and more, gifting you the opportunity to dive deeper and cultivate the sacred, within.
From the comfort of your own personal space, these collections will assist you to establish your roots, seed inner knowing, build awareness, foster skill sets, cultivate personal ceremony, deepen connection, and support the great remembering along the journey home...to yourSelf.
RECLAIMING SACRED SPACE & THE GIFT OF PRESENCE
Each collection is dedicated to a specific theme which uniquely relates with the energy of that cycle within the wheel of the year, and the corresponding levels of BEing. While the theme is announced and insights shared into the creation of each collection, the collections are not fully revealed until you receive it at home. The reason for this approach is twofold; it deeply nourishes the inner child through the magic of wonder, joy, and enchantment, and it relates with the gift of presence, the art of letting go, and developing trust at a core level. These are powerful catalysts for personal healing on all levels, and vital skill sets for modern living.
Both of these home retreat subscriptions are expertly facilitated for you and should you choose to dive in, this journey will assist you to develop new awareness and appreciation in every moment and begin to experience both your surroundings, and yourSelf, through new eyes.
ETHICALLY & ENERGETICALLY SOUND
Each offering you receive in your collection is lovingly co-created with nature, by Niamh, for you. Everything is 100% natural, organic, wildcrafted, sustainably harvested, biodynamic, cruelty free, ethical, created ceremoniously, and handmade with LOVE. All offerings are made with real ingredients, by her own hands, with native ingredients grown in her own garden and sustainably gathered in the wild. Everything is small batch, raw, vegan, sugar free, GMO free, palm free, wheat free, soy free, and essential oil free. Just pure natural goodness, offered up for your healing experiences, wellBEing, and ceremonial pleasure.
SEEDING SELF EMPOWERMENT & CONSCIOUS CURATION
Every act you make in partnership with the Earth is an act of peaceful resistance. Every seed you plant, every cup of herbal tea you drink, every natural remedy you take, and every wound you heal with a homemade ointment is a powerful declaration of independence, resistance, and resilience in the world today. It is the mindful choice to reclaim your power to reconnect (to Self and the ALL), and fully embody your ability to self heal.
Niamh’s way of sharing this and gently raising awareness of symbiotic interconnection is to consciously bridge the divide between spirituality and activism by bringing sustainable green ceremony and living ceremony to the forefront. Doing so not alone honors the whole, but honors the Self, as a unique contributing part of the whole. By honoring that which is around us, our external landscape, we allow ourSelves to nourish and honor the altar within...our inner landscape.
This is the golden thread that interconnects and vibrates through Niamh and her unique service, and what she lovingly weaves through ‘The heART of Ritual’. Her expert curation of each collection, the potent native ingredients she gathers, the way each offering within a collection is ceremoniously crafted, how it is lovingly presented as a feast for the eyes, and the accompanying sacred narratives are a nod to these ancient healing ways and beautifully reflect her approach to full sensory holistic experience.
This is her love song to the world and simultaneously a call to personal adventure and activism, for within it lays the invitation to the path of Self discovery, Self empowerment, and sacred reconnection with the ALL.
GREEN CEREMONY & THE ENVIRONMENT
As a nature lover and responsible human, Niamh does all that she can to ensure all that she does is as environmentally friendly, zero waste, and sustainable as possible. This is her mindful expression of love and gratitude for this planet, and her way of offering up respect to all those who call Earth their home.
Her home retreat collections are no exception and great care and consideration is given to all aspects of these offerings. All glass is recycled (or upcycled) and locally sourced. Paper, paper tape and labels are 100% post consumer recycled fibers and are processed in a totally chlorine free process using soy-based ink. The clear bags are made from vegetable cellulose and compostable, the inks are non toxic, and only natural materials are used as packing materials. Her aim and promise is to continue developing this further so that this is fully aligned with, and part of, these ceremonial offerings.
In the spirit of sustainable ceremony, her commitment to earth stewardship, and personal goals for zero waste, all written and audio materials are shared digitally, which saves paper, cuts back on waste and allows her to make ‘The heART of Ritual’ an even greener offering. This actively empowers you by offering a choice in how you choose to receive the files with the download versus print option, and also gifts her the opportunity to share even more without having the limitations of physical space in the box!
