Spring is Coming 2018 | A beautiful day at the farm

Spring is Coming 2018 | A beautiful day at the farm

Warming up to Spring 2018

A warm hello from Crann Og!

With the days getting longer, our bones warming (just a little) and the life popping out of every corner of the farm it feels like spring has arrived – allowing all of us here at the farm to be out reconnecting and soaking up the sounds of nature.

We have just hosted our first workshop of the year and would like to take the opportunity to thank all the participants of the Living Willow workshop who braved the elements and brought the laughter with them – thank you!

We have a busy year planned with our Forest School, Nature Therapy, ReNature Retreats and Eco Holidays all focusing on returning guests to their roots through connecting with the animals (domestic, farm and wild), breathing the fresh country air and taking the time to unplug and slow down in to the rhythm of nature…

We are currently building a database aimed at all the music lovers out there, or in other words, everyone out there! The surrounding regions are rich in musical tradition and 2018 has some festivals that are worth stamping our feet about… and we want you to have the craic and dance along with us! This will help any Crann Og guests to plan their stay around the happening festivities.

Watch this space!

We are set for the coming year and hope to welcome you down on the farm.

All the best,

The Crann Og Crew

Just what my body & soul needed

Just what my body & soul needed

Most nourishing natural retreat

Relax, Walk, Stretch & Enjoy – our ReNature Yoga Natural Retreat from 6th to 9th of April was a wonderful, relaxing experience. Quite a mixed and international group of people joined us for 4 days to unplug, relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

This wonderful retreat was lead by Marion Edler-Burke and Flor Burke, owners and creators of Crann Og Eco Farm.

Participants attended from Ireland, UK and Germany…a lovely bunch!

Days were filled with yoga, nature therapy guided walks, mindfulness practices, good food, lots of laughter, singing and plenty of time to relax and do nothing, to just enjoy the beautiful nature surrounding us.  Not to mention lots of gorgeous vegetarian food prepared by Brigid O’Leary, Paul King and Merle Diekmann.

We also had a storytelling night around a warm campfire, were we shared many of our adventures and experiences with nature.

The retreat included tactile activities such as nature arts and crafts with gentle yoga classes, mindfulness walks and meditation and breathing practices to deepen our connection with nature as well as our inner self.

We were treated to a Sound Bath by Fiona McDonagh of Lamh Clinic on Saturday afternoon.

It was such a joy for us to see everyone drop down deep, slow down and relax.  They were all beaming smiles and bonded deeply.

Here’s what they said:

‘Fabulous retreat, really enjoyed the yoga and woodland walks.’

‘It was just what my body and soul needed.’

‘Thank you all so much for the most nourishing retreat for the soul.’

‘It has been a truly wonderful retreat, thank you for the delicious meals.’

During our retreats, each moment, each experience provides the opportunity to reconnect with nature, yourself and the essence of community.

If you would like to get unplugged & back to nature and experience such a restorative and deeply relaxing weekend yourself, we will host the next ReNature Yoga Retreat from 28th September to 1st of October 2017.

You can find out more and book your place here.

For the next retreat we will be offering yurts, a super big bell tent and our private eco cabin for private accommodation, couples and/or close friends to share…totally glamped out, luxury off grid eco accommodation…to really get back to nature!

Nature Therapy Benefits – Feel Good Factor

Nature Therapy Benefits – Feel Good Factor

Back to Nature

 

 The Connacht Tribune has run a feature on Crann Og Eco Farm promoting the importance of Nature and the positive effects it has on our daily lives.

Connecting with nature through guided Nature Therapy Walks, Nature School and ReNature Retreats helps us slow down and relax, reduces stress, strengthens our immune system and lifts our mood.

We have been talking about nature therapy benefits since 2004. Visitors and participants emerge from Crann Og reconnected, restored and relaxed. Their shoulders drop, their smiles broaden and they sleep deeper.

 

 

It was fantastic to have such a lengthy feature written about Crann Og and Marion, helping to promote the cause of getting people back to nature for well being and health, emotional and physical. Many thanks to Judy Murphy of the Connacht Tribune for such a good article!

Marion will be giving an introduction to Nature Therapy Walks at the BurrenBeo Landscape Symposium on 10th – 12th March 2017.
