Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a difficult and traumatic experience. A diagnosis can bring up many deep emotions, fears and questions. Why me, What will happen and can I survive this?
From the Shamanic perspective this trauma leads to a Soul or Power Loss. We become disconnected from our soul to escape the painful feelings. All this, right at a time when we need really need inner calmness, strength and to be fearless. Instead, we feel lost, isolated, powerless and unable to stay grounded to directly face the illness.
Transcend the Storm is a unique weekend residential retreat designed to support the you through a cancer diagnosis. We use ancient shamanic techniques to enable you to face the associated spiritual and emotional challenges.
We emphasis the importance of Nutritional support. This food served at the retreat is the finest quality Organic and local produce. The healthy menu has been designed for maximum to those dealing with battling cancer, by Nutritional Therapist and Natural Chef Nicky Halliday.
The weekend is held in Dunderry Park in Co. Meath. This beautiful country house on 25 acres of mixed meadows and woodland offers a tranquil environment to connect to your heart centre. Dunderry Park offers comfortable accommodation in shared rooms.

Gerry has been on the Shamanic Spiritual path for 25 years since spending a month in a coma with multiple near death experiences and acute physical trauma. This opened pathways to the spirit world and he initially studied Spiritual Healing (Chelation Method) with Thomas Jordan of the Hands of Light Institute. This gave him deep insight into techniques for channeling energy to the chakra centres as well as understanding past life relationships with trauma . A decade ago he experienced a second Near Death Experience this time of an ego death which guided him towards studying Shamanism and Transpersonal Therapy. Gerry is also self taught in aspects of herbalism particularly focussed on pain management. In recent times he has healed himself through yoga from chronic pain associated with spinal disc damage . Gerry, through his own life experiences, has gained incredible insight into the transpersonal healing potential of illness and trauma. He is the archetypal wounded healer. He has worked closely with many cancer patients in the past 3 years and it was through this experience that this retreat has been conceived.
