PHILOSOPHY

At Green Spiral we believe that every human being has
a capacity for compassion and that
by cultivating practice as individuals and as a collective
we can remember our most kind and loving essence.
 
It is our intention to share our path as a family
and our growth with those who wish to make
compassionate lifestyle choices. 
We see Green Spiral as a creative journey,
learning to listen to our true nature.

Enjoy nature

An Tionól Cottage
It is the stone farm house we rebuilt as the place
we wished our family to grow up in.
This is a wild place, surrounded by lakes and rivers,
forest and wildlife.
An Tionól is an open door for those
who search for more harmonious living.
Connecting with Nature

Our senses awaken to the breath the
living forest and the pulse of the river.
Pausing to listen to our ancestral friends.

A Collective Journey

This is an invitation to stand in community, solidarity, and connection.
A celebration toward our internal individual and external collective freedom.

Integrative Learning
It is through direct experience with our environment and with others
that humans learn best.
Conscious Eating & Cooking
Food prepared slowly and with love. Gathered from our organic garden or
sourced locally where possible.

Let’s Play!!

Taking life seriously
delimiter image

Play isn’t just for kids. Running, dancing, meditating, playing games and being silly with playful touch and body play: It’s how we harness our inner spirit and feed our imagination.
Play is a primal part of us. It helps us to connect with our creative more authentic nature and with others inner beauty.
When chidren play they need free, unstructured,
child-directed and adult-uninfluenced Play.
As adults when we play we improve cognitive functioning, being able to deal with stress with greater ease and flow, generating creative thinking, childlike exuberance, and laughing more often.

Stay always updated
