How to Switch Off

How to Switch Off

with Derval Dunford www.sui.ie


·            Would you like to switch off completely?

·            Would you like to experience a sense of space?

·            Would you like to experience s sense of peace?

·            Would you like to just lie down?

Derval Dunford’s simple yet rich creative practices have the capacity to allow body and mind to switch off and rest deeply.

Stop running on empty! Relaxation is a necessity, not a luxury!

This session is experiential, it will be guided sitting down and later lying down.

  • For this workshop it is essential to be cosy.
  • Have a warm comfortable place to sit and/lie, warm blankets, pillows or cushions.
  • Please wear warm comfortable clothes.
  • Turn your phone on silent and place it outside the door.
  • Place a ‘Do not disturb’ sign on your door.
  • Give yourself permission to Relax & Recover
