Birthlight tutors in Donegal

Recently Liz who is based in Northern Ireland invited several tutors to gather together to share techniques and ideas on our new Nurturing baby massage course. I was already in N Ireland and had enjoyed some of the sights of Belfast including the amazing museum of the Titanic. I also had the privilege to offer the first Birthlight Aquanatal course in the country, which was very well received.

I met Liz, Kirsteen and Bryony in the oldest pub in the city and after refreshments we joined with Francoise, Shawn and Marion at the airport and our road trip began..

Liz had found a lovely house for us on a quiet bay in beautiful Donegal, with the fresh air and sounds of nature we all slept soundly. Many of the group (not me!) braved the cold and had an exhilarating morning swim in the sea.  The morning was spent discussing the needs of very young babies and their parents, how we can support them and the benefits of touch and massage. Birthlight baby massage gives simple and enjoyable massage techniques; recognition of baby cues and promotes bonding, drawing on parent’s deep intuition. The afternoon we walked and talked taking in the extraordinary scenery. Of course the evening was spent in an Irish pub with much singing and dancing!

The weekend was a lovely mix of study, discussion, walks and fun. Thank you Liz for your hospitality. I am now thinking of more Birthlight gatherings for everyone, it’s so good to meet up, hope to see you at the conference.
