OurPlantPowerWorld Ireland

July 2017

Transformation is ours when we gather together as a tribe in the lush green lands of majestic Ireland where magic forests and intricate wild flowers beckon our remembrance of our deepest connection with nature and spirit. We are spiritual beings having a human experience...

Join Julie Piatt/SriMati, Rich Roll, and the Happy Pear in Ireland for The Heart & Soul of Plant-Based Living!


From July 24th through the 31st 2017, we invite you to share an intimate week of yoga, meditation, exploration & transformation in a luxury accommodation at a magical and historic Irish country house, Balleyvolane.

Ballyvolane is a magnificent country manor with glamping accommodations situated in the countryside of Southern Ireland. There is an inescapable air of frivolity at Ballyvolane - the name itself means 'the place of springing heifers' and is testament to the fertility, richness and natural diversity of the land on which the estate lies. A uniquely warm atmosphere pervades throughout the gardens and grounds of Ballyvolane, created largely by the mixture of mature deciduous trees, formal, semi-formal, walled and woodland gardens, not to mention the wide variety of wildlife that thrive therein.

A long time in the making, we are thrilled to launch PlantPower Ireland with an expanded platform focused on the heart and soul of plant-based living. Plant-based deliciousness is on the menu for the entire week with cuisine designed by Julie and the Happy Pear and prepared by the expert chefs at Ballyvolane. Over the course of seven days, we will share and intimately explore the tools, insights and inner work required to optimize your relationships, amplify your creative voice, integrate holistic wellness into your daily life and access your highest divine purpose to achieve wholeness. 

We will share, laugh, cry, sing, and dance our way into our best, most authentic lives! Each one of us was created from a divine design and if we all play our parts well and true, then the world will truly be a much better place.
