Good Friday 25th March 2016 – Gleniff Horseshoe
Time: 10 am-3pm approx
Meeting Point: The Old Mill at the base of the Horseshoe, Ballintrillick
You are very welcome to join me on a Good Friday journey around the beautiful Gleniff Horseshoe – I invite you to create a pocket of space so that you reflect on the cross or crosses in your life. This will be a slow walk with plenty of resting stops.
Most of us long for joy and happiness. Sometimes what prevents us from feeling happy is our unwillingness or fear of feeling the other less attractive emotions of fear, sadness, anger, guilt and shame.
Good Friday celebrates and acknowledges these unpleasant emotions and experiences. The walk will finish with a little ritual of buildig a fire and offering little symbols of our cross to nurture the flame. It is not necessarily about getting rid of our pain but transforming it…
You might like to bring a snack and hot drink in a back pack – or you may choose to fast. Please bring raingear! It is Ireland…
Easter Sunday 27th March 2016 – Sunrise at Streedagh Beach
“When you properly align attention and intention, you will discover that focusing on joy is not an accident, but a powerful choice that is within your control.” (Donald Altman: The Joy Compass)
Time: 06:45 ( please note clocks go forward on Saturday night so this will feel like getting up for 5:45!!) until about 9:30
Early Bird: Listen to the birds greet the morning, smell the freshness of the sea air, feel the cold and the comfort of a fire, feast on the natural beauty of this environment, taste a nourishing outdoor breakfast provided by all who attend ( please bring some food to share).
The heart of the event will be to uncover and celebrate the joy deep within us, the joy of being loved and of belonging.
For further information, contact me Peter Devlin by email or on 0863663276. Children are welcome.
Please let me know if you’re hoping to come to either event so that I can prepare.
