Mindfulness And Recovery Workshop at The Sanctuary With Joan Flannelly & Mary O’Grady

Mindfulness And Recovery Workshop at The Sanctuary With Joan Flannelly & Mary O’Grady


This workshop is Onsite

Workshop Description: Join us for a recovery focused re treat in the healing space of the Sanctuary.  Wherever you are in your recovery journey, you are very welcome. Recovering from what? From any – and everything. We live in an increasingly complex and challenging world. It is not surprising that we develop many unhealthy dependencies which can so often come with an overwhelming sense of powerlessness. You may be recovering from alcoholism, drug addiction, unhealthy relationships, compulsive habits, anxiety and stress, work habits, disordered eating. You may be curious about recovery or supporting a friend or family member on their recovery journey. You may be many years in recovery or just beginning your journey. The space will be inclusive and suitable for everyone.

The day will be spent in gentle compassion-based mindfulness practices. There will be space for personal reflection, as well as sharing in community. There will be time to walk in the beautiful Sanctuary gardens. There will be an opportunity to rest and reflect on what recovery might look like in your life and how you might get there.

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm is all about”. Haruki Murakami

Day & Date: Saturday, 13th August 2022

Time: 10am to 4pm
