The Art and Healing Centre is nestled in the heart of Ireland, in North Tipperary. It is a peaceful spot, the perfect setting for connecting with nature and relaxing away from it all.
The Art & Healing Centre students in the weekly art classes regularly exhibit their work. There is a great selection of subjects, landscapes, seascapes, horses, flowers etc. There are paintings in oils, acrylics and watercolours. Please visit the website for details on upcoming exhibitions.

Dancing the Rainbow
Dancing the Rainbow is a powerful healing system using dance, movement, colour and aromatherapy oils. We always start from stillness. We then do a gentle warm-up. We work up through the chakra system (energy centres) starting with the base chakra. Here we are grounding and connecting to the earth with African drumming music. It is important to have a sound foundation before we work with the other chakras. The creative/sacral chakra is next moving and freeing up the hips. This helps to unblock our creative skills. Then the solar plexus, here we are working to build self esteem and to focus on the things we wish to achieve. The heart is giving and receiving. We work to open up our hearts. We do a little voice work at the end to help us to speak and hear our truth. The higher chakras are unblocking and healing while we work with the lower ones. All this is done in a very light hearted way in a beautiful peaceful setting. I create a safe space where we draw back criticism and judgement of ourselves and others allowing each person to be themselves. It is freestyle dance and you only do as much or a little that feels right for you.
