  • “What Ireland Needs To Nurture Its Soul” With Mark Hederman in Smock Alley

    Running from 7:30pm to 9pm on Weds Nov 22nd in Smock Alley. If you are a student please contact the office for a €15 discount.

    The Sanctuary is hosting an evening of dialogue about how we are, individually and collectively, to nurture a relationship with that most important and indigenous part of us, our soul, as we move into the 21st century. We are fortunate to have one of Ireland’s most eminent thinkers, Mark Patrick Hederman, to give his perspective on key factors that have shaped us since the founding of our Free State and what we now need to sustain our inner lives and find meaning as we move forward. Emma Farrell and Justin McAleese will respond to Mark Patrick’s paper from the perspective of the challenges facing young adults in modern Ireland, for whom traditional religious practice has little, if any, relevance. The evening will then be opened up for dialogue with the audience, facilitated by Tony Bates.
