Secrets of Natural Walking for Health & Wellbeing
Here's a super video introducing SONW! Please let me know asap if you're interested as numbers are kept small, and please ask if any questions... People have been describing the practice of Secrets of Natural Walking as like having a good massage or acupuncture treatment ... every day! It has wonderful effects on both body and mind: physically healing deeply and gently, and bringing peace and calm to our senses... and it's really, really enjoyable... Secrets of Natural Walking helps to correct how we walk, to improve posture & body shape, promote healing, calm the mind and open the heart. You will learn a Simple 6 Step Movement to reawaken your body's natural healing abilities. Every step in future will be towards better health and well-being. See for more information (and a great video!) Please call Darragh on[masked] or send a message for more information or to book. Price: €150 includes regular practice sessions and on-going support from your instructor. The Importance of Walking Properly and Naturally: Walking is so simple and something we all do many times a day, yet few do it properly. Over time, it is easy to pick up bad habits that make the way we walk not only less efficient, but possibly detrimental to our physical health and emotional well-being. By learning Secrets of Natural Walking™, each step in our daily life becomes a beautiful opportunity to improve the condition of our whole being, including our body, mind, emotions, and heart. Just like the food we eat is not simply to fill an empty stomach, the steps we take are not simply to move our body from one place to another. During the workshop, the theory of Natural Walking™ is combined with interactive practical exercises to help guide participants to enjoy the many benefits from walking properly and naturally. Eating properly nourishes our body with essential vitamins and nutrients while walking naturally and properly helps to adjust our muscles, spine, individual discs, and meridians. In addition to assisting the physical body, proper natural walking also helps our emotional health, mind and connection to the spiritual heart. Benefits of Natural Walking: Through Secrets of Natural Walking™, participants will learn to identify many common mistakes made in walking and how to fix them. Also, it is not uncommon for participants to begin enjoying the benefits of natural walking even before the workshop ends. Incorporating proper walking techniques addresses the root causes of problems, even those previously unknown, and naturally helps to correct them. Participants have reported: • Relief from back pain • Relief from neck pain • Relief from knee pain • Improvements in metabolism and digestion • A firmer, more toned body • Relief from pain associated with arthritis including swollen feet and joints • Improvement in blood sugar levels • Improvements in the quality of sleep

What we're about

"We are meant to be happy.

That has always been something we strive for in this life. In fact, if we look at the motivations behind our thoughts and action conscious and unconscious they are all to get us closer to the feeling, or at least the idea, of happiness.

Some of us have long asked why we cannot hold on to happiness. For all of the scholarship and human insights across the centuries, nobody has found a complete and enduring answer. Perhaps because it has been too close to see…

The answer, the key, is our heart."

~ Irmansyah Effendi, M.Sc., Founder Padmacahaya Institute

Open Heart Meditation is a very easy-to-learn, heart-centered meditation that helps you experience the peace and joy that is already within your heart, through the simple technique of relaxing, smiling and surrendering.

We have regular Meetups on Monday & Friday evenings, as well as other events throughout the year. At the Meetup we will walk you through the basic steps (relax, smile and surrender) of heart meditation so you can become familiar with the process, then we will do the Open Heart Meditation together.

Open Heart Meditation is a beautiful, guided meditation that connects our hearts to True Source, the Source of Love & Light (we use the non-denominational term "True Source" but you a free to use whatever word feels right for you- God, Spirit, Universe etc...). The Open Heart Meditation also helps cleanse negative energy and emotions from your heart and replace it with Love & Light in a very gentle, effortless way.

Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful after the Open Heart Meditation. With practice, as our heart becomes stronger, we become more peaceful, joyful and able to follow our heart's own inner guidance to be happier in our daily life.

Reiki Tummo is a gentle, yet effective, form of energy healing based on the heart. In Reiki Tummo we rely on our heart connection to channel Reiki, Divine Energy, to others and ourselves. With thousands of practitioners worldwide, Reiki Tummo has safely and successfully helped countless people all over the world. Reiki Tummo combines the Divine energy of Reiki with Kundalini fire for accelerated healing and cleansing of all the chakras. Reiki Tummo participants immediately have the ability to channel Reiki Tummo energy. In addition, the non-physical heart is accessed and strengthened. It is very good for relieving stress, clearing stuck emotions and energetic blockages, helping to bring balance and healing to your whole being.
