Bealtaine Celebrations at Croi na Gaillimhe – John O’Donohue workshops
Monday afternoon 13 May was the start of our Bealtaine celebrations.
Elaine Scahill, Movement and Drama Therapist facilitated the first of two
workshops inspired by the writings of the late John O’Donohue.
This workshop was a wonderful introduction to the works of John O’Donohue
for those unfamiliar, and a lovely gentle reflection for those already well acquainted with his works.
It began with gentle movement and warm up, and continued with an introduction to working
with imagery through the body and voice. We then looked specifically at John Donohue’s
writings; Elaine read from selected material and invited participants to become aware
of their own individual response while also offering a collective response to the works.
Elaine certainly helped us reveal the enriching words of John O’Donohue in a most creative way….
