Your Facilitators 

The weekend will be hosted by Claire Campbell, The Life & Soul Coach and Joan Flannelly, Heart Space. Claire is an intuitive and empathic Life Coach & Shamanic healer. She ended a 25 year corporate career in Switzerland & the US and moved to the West of Ireland to follow the call of her spirit. Claire's shamanic work is deeply aligned with the West of Ireland and she will open The Great Reconnect with a Celtic whitethorn tea ceremony. The weekend will feature a fire ceremony and Ancestral Healing.


Joan has been teaching Meditation since 2017 and is well known from her work in the West with Heart Space and nationally through her association with The Sanctuary. Meditation has been life changing for her and she has a sincere wish to be of love & service to others and share the wonderful blessings she has received. Her life's work has been in the creation of Heart Spaces and in a deep belief in our own ability to bring healing and light to ourselves. We just need the Heart Space!


Claire & Joan will be joined by Melanie from Sidhe Sound Healing for a Sound Bath on Saturday evening. A Sound Bath is an immersion in beautiful sounds and vibrations that are healing for your body, mind and spirit. The term ‘bath’ signifies being bathed in sound waves.
