Creacon Wellness Retreat: Luck of the Irish
By the Fuddhist
While I never found any pots of rainbow gold, my stay at the award-winning Creacon Wellness Retreat was one of the most magical experiences in my life.
Far better than finding a pot of gold, I found a golden pot of love and connection.
My first moment at this idyllic Irish wellness retreat in Wexford, Ireland happened one cold November evening. It had been raining all night, and I was driving in from Dublin. Before enjoying my magical wellness stay, I had to first manage how to drive on the left while sitting on the right and shifting with my left hand. After driving through the country roads and those pesky roundabouts, I was ready to call it a night.
I was a little worried that because the rain and back roads delayed my arrival, I might arrive at a closed retreat. Instead, the second I pulled up, a light came on, and Marcela and Jonathan were there to greet me with a warm smile, a nourishing meal, a cozy fireplace, and a wonderful conversation. I immediately felt at home.
The healing had already begun.
The late night menu consisted of ginger, lime, and ricotta quenelle, with baby pears and sun-dried tomato “sand” along with a large glass of refreshing pH 7.0 Kangen water and a healing elixir. The dining room was so lovely and inviting, with simple décor and beautiful furnishings. The hallway was dressed with a stunning framed picture of Sai Baba, and while I stared at it, one of my favorite quotes of his came to mind:
“Love one another and help others to rise to the higher levels, simply by pouring out love. Love is infectious and the greatest healing energy.” – Sai Baba
Back in the dining room, I met one of the yoga instructors, Sharon, who invited me to a cup of delectable lemongrass mint/ginger tea. We had a lovely conversation and before heading to bed, she gifted me with a beautiful Mala she had recently handcrafted. A priceless transfer of loving energy to deepen my mantra and meditation practice.
