Courses & Workshops

In keeping with the HSE guidelines concerning the Covid 19 virus,  I’m currently offering mindfulness sessions online exclusively.  See below for dates and times. 

Online Mindfulness Circles

During these sessions we practise mindfulness together as a community as we continue to navigate this time of uncertainty and change.  It’s an opportunity for you to experience stillness,  awaken the senses, and come home to the body through heart-centred mindfulness practices.

Whether you’ve been practising for some time or are new to mindfulness, you’re welcome.

Sunday, Online Mindfulness Circles October, November, December, 2021.

Practising mindfulness  helps us to tune into and familiarise ourselves with our reality, discerning what’s  important in our changing lives, while also responding to challenges more skilfully, instead of reacting to what we don’t wish to experience.

Compassion – sometimes described as “a lubricant for the heart”   allows us to meet our experience with greater acceptance and care as we deepen into more conscious and tender relationship towards ourselves and others.

I hope you will join me again for some or all of these upcoming sessions.

Join us for a morning of mindful self-compassion  – an opportunity to take time out from the demands of busy life, especially at this time of the year.  Gift yourself with a morning of silent practice and learn how self compassion can be a valuable resource in your life.

During the morning we will practice sitting and walking meditations,  and some gentle yoga- based mindful movement, all with an attitude of mindful self-compassion.

To book your place and for further information, please contact me at 086/8622012 or, eilis@mindfultherapy.ie.

Mindfulness Course

8 Week Mindful Self-Compassion Course, Spring 2022. Dates TBC 

What is Self-Compassion?

Self-compassion involves treating yourself like you would a good friend who is having a hard time, whatever the circumstances.  Our western culture places great emphasis on being kind to our family, friends and neighbours who maybe struggling. But typically we don’t treat ourselves as well as we do those who are close to us.

Self-compassion is a practice in which we learn to be a good friend to ourselves when we need it most – to become an inner ally rather than an inner enemy.

Although a simple way to think about self-compassion is treating yourself as you would treat a good friend, the more complete definition involves three core elements that we bring to bear when we are in pain: Self-kindness, Common Humanity and Mindfulness .

How well we have lived
How well we have loved
How well we have learned to let go
