Soul Sunday with Gerry Hussey @ Thomas Prior Hall
Join WellFest regulary Gerry Hussey for the first in his series of Soul Sunday workshops. This first workshop will be a powerful exploration and insight into the integrated connection of mind, body & spirit. It will show how each of us has the ability to heal, inspire and renew ourselves in a way that allows us to experience the best of our true selves.
The workshop will include talks; progressive self-insight exercises and insights into the science and questions of psychology, neuroscience, and spirituality. You can also expect powerful experiences of meditation, visualisation and follow up video and coaching tools direct from Gerry himself.

They will also be providing delicious treats to refresh & refuel during the break.
Saturday, 16 November from 9.30am – 12pm. Tickets are priced at €35 and are available here
The Earth Element Workshops @ Hot Yoga Dublin
These three workshops are taking place over the entire weekend and will cover earth, wind and fire in a unique setting with live music. All workshops are taught my Dulce Aguilar, who designed the Mandala Vinyasa System based on the elements. Dulce is also the Co-Founder and Course Director of The Yoga People.
The intention of the mandala vinyasa practice is to honour the creative energy in all its manifestations. It opens practitioners up to a deeper level of introspection as you move and expand around the mat. It allows you to access a deeper level of awareness than what you might experience through a more linear practice.
You will practice with the energy of the Earth when you want to become more steady and stable. With the energy of the air when you need to accept the present, and with the energy of fire for willpower and transformation. All three workshops will be conducted to live music.
From Friday, 15 November to Sunday, 17. Workshops are priced at €34.99 for one or €80 for all three. Tickers are available here
What’s on in Cork
Wreath Making Workshop @ Fota House & Gardens
This holiday season, treat yourself to enjoying some mindful creativity while learning the art of wreath making from The Flowersmith Studio.
All materials and tools will be provided for you to make your very own traditional Christmas wreath out of mixed evergreen, berries and pine cones. You will make your wreath on a moss base, ideal for ensuring it stays fresh for you to enjoy throughout the holiday period. You are also welcome to bring any other bits and bobbles of your own along which you would like to include.
These workshops are fun, relaxed, informative and a great chance to get all the Christmas feels whether you come on your own or with friends, family or colleagues!
A portion of each ticket sold goes direct to The Irish Heritage Trust to support the national treasure that is Fota House & Gardens.
Saturday, 16 November from 11am – 1pm. Tickets are priced at €70.25 and are available here
