? 7 nights (6 full days) food and accommodation, ?420
? Biography and some emotional release experience recommended

2:00 - 4:00 Therapy sessions

Each day will start with a "go-round," and end with a "wrap-up," where you, as a participant, have an opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings and what you might need for your session work. Although the sessions will flex to the needs of the participants, generally you will receive a session in the morning and a session in the afternoon. When not in facilitated session, you are free to buddy with others in the session room or take the time to reflect, rest, journal, meditate, or walk.

Sli Na Bande can accommodate up to 30 people. Each living area has dorm style rooms with 2 and 3 beds. There are several shared bathrooms. The Primal Group Room is a freestanding wooden chalet overlooking the sea with bathroom, kitchen, and wood burning stove. All food is vegetarian and prepared from organic produce where available.


Sam is a Primal Integration facilitator, trainer, personal mentor, musician, and writer practicing a unified approach to growth and healing that is an expression of his extensive personal background in Zen, Taoism, natural living, and primal. Sam's private practice is both local and global with his home base in the vibrant community of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. His extensive writings on Primal Integration can be found on his web site: http://www.primalworks.com.

Clare is a Primal Integration facilitator and spiritual companion. She uses a contemplative approach within her practice, combining spirituality with deep feeling process. Clare is currently working full time in Enniskerry as an Anamchara, Primal Integration facilitator, and workshop leader.

Julia is a Primal Integration facilitator and psychotherapist. She has been in the helping professions in England since 1979 and is trained in psychodynamic analytic therapy and primal integration facilitation. Julia has recently moved to Ireland and currently lives and practices in Dublin.

Sheila is a Primal Integration Facilitator based in Scotland. Her unique sensitivity and creativity combined with 11 yrs Social Work experience, Pre & Perinatal training, and 14 years as an independent Person Centered Counsellor/Supervisor make her a gifted and empathic therapist.

The primal group itself will be held at Sl? Na Bande, http://www.slinabande.com. Sl? Na Band? overlooks the Irish Sea and the Wicklow mountains and is situated close to the village of Newtownmountkennedy in County Wicklow, Ireland. Its philosophy is to show you an alternative way of living. The growing of organic vegetables, the water cleaning system, the energy production through solar, wind and vegetable oil systems express a willingness to exist in a more environmentally balanced way. All accommodation has been built with environmentally friendly materials and over 3500 deciduous trees have been planted on the 7 acre site. Since 1991 at Sli Na Bande, the water has successfully been cleaned with a natural reedbed system and the house powered by wind and solar energy. With their latest project, both vehicles and central heating are powered by vegetable oil produced on the land.
At the moment Sli Na Bande is used by people for taking time out to reflect, to expose themselves to the healing power of the earth, to contemplate different ways of living and relating, and to explore what it means to live in community.

Participants will arrive on Sunday, October 21 before dinner, and have a group introduction and "go-round" that evening. Sessions will begin the next morning (Monday) and run through to dinner on Saturday, October 27. It is suggested that participants stay for an informal conclusion Saturday evening and depart the next day, Sunday, October 28.
