The Butterfly Barn Experience – 31 March 2016

What a day!

I met a wonderful group of ladies who invited me to Clodagh House, a beautiful old house in the village of Portlaw, Co. Waterford where I hosted the very first Butterfly Barn Experience.
In my imagination Butterfly Barn is a place where people come to rediscover their strengths, try out new things, and have fun. Since I don’t have a physical place, I thought why not bring the concept to other venues and low and behold it happened.

So what did we do all day?

My aim was to share my experience as a personal development trainer in how to rediscover skills and personal qualities that have sometimes been left lying dormant or unappreciated. We do it unconsciously. For example someone might say, “that cake you made is fab” and we answer “sure anyone can do that” when the reality is often different. The day is about valuing who ‘you’ are and appreciating it. Warning – it’s not therapy it’s all done through fun and laughter and as you can see from the feedback below that’s exactly what happened.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the ladies for taking part and for the lovely lunch provided, everybody brought along a little something and made the day great. Here’s to many more fun-filled days.


and some feedback.

“A really lovely, fun enjoyable day. I didn’t want it to end.” Emer

“It made me personal feel that I could take time to think about my skills and qualities, left me in a very positive “feel good” mode. Thoroughly enjoyed it, thank you.” Conchi

“Life does throw challenges at us from which we struggle to get through but meeting today was another exit from the tunnel. Loved the fun shared. Well done Karen.” Anne

“Really enjoyed the day with Karen. Time went too fast was so relaxed I could have spent another day there.” Rita
