Awakening Series of Lectures

Our Awakening Wonder Series of Lectures

This is an opportunity to be awake to stillness, creativity and spirituality. The ability to wonder is a gift but we can miss it if we are too busy occupying ourselves.

Come join us for an evening with Professor Ian Roberson, Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Trinity College Dublin talking about mental balance, namely finding the equilibrium between taking action in the world and engaging in reflection and self-examination. We also welcome Padraig O Morain, Irish Times journalist and mindfulness practitioner, will be talking about mindful self-compassion. Frits Koster also joins us for a special evening on living with Heart: deepening mindfulness with heartfulness.
