The Ashram Experience 2017

When: 30 June – 30th July

Where: Stella Maris, Carrick Road, Baily, Howth, Co. Dublin

This community experience, within the natural beauty of Stella Maris, will offer you an opportunity to experience meditation, silence, simplicity, peace and inner stillness, to enrich your spirit and enliven your faith.

It will be led by Korko Moses, a Jesuit priest from India who founded Dhyanavanam, an Ashram in India inspired by both Christian & Eastern spiritual traditions.

He is a spiritual guide, counsellor, teaches meditation and yoga, leads retreats, and has worked with people with addictions. He also offers spiritual guidance for the L’Arche communities.

Ashrams are places where people of any faith, gender or nationality can stay and practice intense meditation, taking up an inward journey under guidance to realise the truth of themselves as divine.

Sr Stan On The Ashram

The prospect of visiting an Ashram in India has been growing in popularity during these busy times. It seems more and more people are looking for meaning in life, work and in relationships and for a way of slowing down and finding simplicity.

Thanks to renowned social campaigner Sr Stan people can now sample the Indian Ashram experience here in Ireland as part of an innovative offering by The Sanctuary, the mindfulness and meditation centre she founded in 1988.

According to Sr Stan, the Ashram is open to people of all faiths, religions, and those who are not faith orientated.
