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.
Mindfulness teacher Fionnuala Gill is delighted to offer this day of mindfulness practice, music and reflection as an opportunity for those who have an established mindfulness practice or have taken part in an eight-week mindfulness course to reconnect with practice in the company of others.
With Dominic Cogan, this is an 8-week programme delivered by a trained Mindfulness for Teachers: .b Foundations teacher. It is designed for teachers, staff, and parents who want to develop their own mindfulness practice and enhance their own wellbeing. However it would also enable participants who develop a practice to qualify for further training in order to teach .b or Paws .b to young people.

Each participant will be invited to work towards forming habits that are kinder, gentler, more compassionate and mindful, leading to a lifetime habit of mindfulness and compassion for self and others. Mindful practices and mindful eating will be an integral part of the day.
