“Ô, SUNLIGHT! THE MOST PRECIOUS GOLD TO BE FOUND ON EARTH.”
– ROMAN PAYNE
SOMEGA is the home of pure, expertly formulated, effective health food supplements your body will welcome. Paul’s sister swears by these guys; not only do they provide top-notch health products, but also excellent service and sweet vibes. Their pleasant-tasting Liposomal Vitamin C, in particular, is a gem, crafted with natural citrus flavour and patented liposomal technology for optimum absorption. Enjoy straight from the spoon, or add it to your favourite cold drink to boost its nutritional value!
HEALTHCARE FROM HOME
If you’re not feeling tip-top, it may be due to a food allergy, and Peter, the man with a plan, has a rake of tests you can do to find out. Nutricentric Healthcare distributes diagnostics throughout Ireland, empowering people to understand their health in a world of conflicting information. Available at affordable prices, this range includes food sensitivity diagnostics, Vitamin D, monitoring of Intraocular Pressure, blood lipids (the 4 “cholesterols”) and HbA1c (to detect pre-diabetes).
Hempful, one of our favourite CBD companies, has teamed up with So27, an Irish award-winning skincare specialist, to create natural, highly effective CBD skincare products. We especially love their massage oil which is made from 100% natural ingredients and contains 1,000mg of Cannabidiol. This beautifully hand-crafted oil is blended with black pepper and clove oil to warm the body naturally. It also relieves tension and physical stress and promotes healthy skin!
We love the Biomedis Trinity, a device of electromagnetic correction for detoxication, harmonisation and increasing the body resources. In other words, it uses frequency to bring you back into balance, giving serious matrix vibes. It even improves the working capacity of organs and prevents premature ageing. Who wouldn’t want all these amazing benefits? Check them out!
Yarrow Lane Herbs is a lovely holistic brand created by the Irish herbalist Laura Darcy who’s all about “healing from the roots up”. We love the sound of her Banjaxed Balm, a great all-rounder everyone should have in their home first aid kit. This herbal healing balm can ease the pain from cuts, bruises, sore muscles, menstrual cramps and much more. To top it off, it smells incredible, thanks to the herbal-infused oils that Laura makes herself!
Flourish This Summer
After discovering the tools of Access Consciousness in 2017, Leandra Costa became an Access Consciousness Certified Facilitator dedicated to helping people make the desired change in their life or business. What’s different about this modality is that it focuses on your knowledge about yourself and the world around you. It is based on the idea that nobody except you can know what truly works for you, empowering people to help themselves like never before.
The ‘Made in Yoga Shop’ is a brand creating simple and fun messages to express yourself, centred around positive lifestyle choices. If you love yoga, meditation and having a good time, check out their unique line of products. Recently, we fell in love with their Alien Yoga Club t-shirts which give us serious yogi vibes.
If you find it hard to practice meditation sitting upright on the floor, give Yoga Nidra a try. This powerful meditation technique involves resting comfortably in corpse pose (Savasana) while a teacher brings you through five layers of the self, known as Pancha Maya Kosha. Our publisher Paul experienced this on a recent yoga retreat in the Burren and loved it: “I slept like a gem, and the Yoga Nidra made a huge impact.”
HEALTHY FAST FOOD
If you love organic food, like us, you’ve got to check out Honestly Farm Kitchen; they’re all about deliciously simple food made with great ingredients. With one restaurant in Carrick on Shannon and another in Strandhill, Co. Sligo, these guys are redefining the fast food concept across the country. Serving local, seasonal and organic food direct from their family
farm, this is the ultimate farm-to-fork experience.
The Latin Quarter is the place to be. The owner Sandra Fernandes, who is a native of Brazil, opened this charming shop in a well-preserved early Victorian terrace on the main street of Redcross in 2017. Redcross has a unique charm, and this place encapsulates that with its selection of quality local crafts and gifts, delicious fresh food and divine coffee. If you’re ever in the area, come and chill out at this peaceful and artsy café!
PREM RAWATS NEW BOOK
“Hear Yourself is a gentle, clear map to find our inner self. I ask: What do we need to listen to in order to hug a loved one? What loved one? The inner self. The self. The profound inner self (not fake personality). You cannot listen to a fake personality. It is empty. It does not exist.” Yes indeed we agree, reading this at present from the man himself Prem
Rawat, rumour has it he may be in Dublin this Summer, keep an eye out. A soothing summer read for your holidays.
BEGINNER’S ASTROLOGY COURSE
Nearly every year for the past 12 years, Danielle Vierling has offered a dynamic Beginner’s Astrology course, with 12 participants max, so each participant gets personal attention. Each time an amazing group of curious & magical participants come along. Her groups are highly interactive, inspirational, and engaging, with each person getting to learn about astrology through their own exploration and study of their personal birth chart. Her next Zoom course will start this June.
Positive Nights presents: Lee Harris. On July 26th at the Royal Marine Hotel, Dún Laoghaire, transformational teacher Lee Harris will bring his gifts of intuition to read the energy of the room and address the spiritual themes relevant to those in attendance. He will also channel his spirit guides, the Z’s, to bring forth their unique wisdom on how we can live a more heart-centred life. Finally, at the end of the evening, Lee will do a book signing.
We love the sound of the Lomilomi Retreat happening this August. During this five-day experience, participants will discover the essence of Lomi Lomi Hawaiian Healing touch and develop the skills to support them when working within the realm of healing. This five-day experience will include protocols, prayers, ceremonies, and a traditional Group Ho’oponopono session, helping you build your connection to the Source of Healing.
Creacon Lodge is one of the best retreat centres we know. Nestled in the gorgeous green hills of the Irish countryside, it’s an ideal spot for retreat, relaxation and rejuvenation. We highly recommend their Spiritual Awakening retreat taking place this August, which centres on meditation, yoga and profound personal transformation. Their Lughnasadh Celebration on August 1st is another great event for tapping into your sacredness this summer.
