Who is the Creative Nest for?

The sessions are held spaces to allow you  to engage your head, hand and heart, using movement, music and meditation, allowing you to re-centre your body, re-focus your mind and inspire your creative practice. No experience is required in dancing or any creative practice in order to join. 

What happens after I register?

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the session.

How do I prepare for the session?

Take time beforehand to prepare any materials you might need to work (paper, paint, pens, pencils etc), create a space so that you can focus on one project.

Clear space for dancing: making sure you have space to move and stretch a little. You don’t need lots of space but it is good to have space to stretch your arms right out and above you at the very least. 

Dress comfortably, have water or a cup of tea ready and ensure that your phone is on airplane mode.

You are responsible for the care of your body: always pay attention to your bodies needs and limitations, taking rest if you need it, stretching a little before hand if it helps you warm up. Movement medicine is a conscious dance practice,  it is primarily based in bringing greater awareness into your moving body and is a powerful practice for learning to listen to your physical needs and bringing them into authentic movement.  

When can I join the session?

Please join the session 5mins before it starts so you can check that Zoom is working well for you and so that we can start together on time and please stay for the duration of the class.

What people say about the Creative nest 

“I really love your cozy creative nest. It is inspiring and safe. I am able to let go and immerse in my art. Beautifully held.”

Birgit P. Cologne

“Creative nest is one of the highlights of my week. This is my chance to play-to let go of the “should be’s and have to’s”, To hear the music and Sinéad’s gentle guiding voice, to feel soft breezes around me created by movement of my own making, Then to take my selection of art supplies and a blank page to do what I want, seeing something come to life on the page-it doesn’t matter what. It’s a space that simultaneously feels my own and yet is part of a safe, undemanding, supportive group. The positive effect has extended beyond the nest and has oiled some rusty creative cogs that were almost seized.. It has restored some joy.” Brenda

Creativity and Movement medicine

“Dance connects us – with our bodies, with our souls, with each other, with the space within and around us and with the spirit of life. It gives us breathing space away from the noise of our busyness. In that space we come into deeper alignment with ourselves and our own intuitive knowledge…Once we enter the flow of our movement we learn to trust the natural creativity of the life force inside us.”
