'Wisdom teachings for the practically orientated'  is an experiment as part of Cultivate's strategy for emphasising sustaining the individual in a sustainable environment.  We have created a brief four week forum for kindred spirits to gather, commune, and share with four experienced local teachers in Mind-Body therapies: Dr. Anthony Sharkey, Mary O'Callaghan, Sheila De Butiler and Sarah Bird.  

So, how about injecting some Light into these early Autumn months?

Keep yourself inspired, healthy and on the path!


Oct 23rd | Dr. Anthony Sharkey | Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) | Why wait until the latest developments in Medicine trickle down to your GP's surgery? Did you know that you can learn some of the most potent self-help techniques known on the planet in just a few minutes? Read more about EFT in a recent Irish Times article: Free your mind of pain

Oct. 30th | Mary O'Callaghan | Mindfulness Meditation | Sustainable ecology emerges from a heart connection to myself and the world around me.  The practice of mindfulness and mindful meditation is a powerful pathway to a truly embodied ecology that enhances our felt awareness of the connection between our inner world and our environment.  Mindfulness is a simple practice that connects us to our natural sense of presence. Learning and practicing mindfulness helps us come to our senses in a very real way and live more fully in the present moment.  Mary's influences include Thich Nhat Hanh and Jon Kabat-Zinn.

Nov 6th | Sheila De Butiler | Transcending Ego and Fear Calibri (Body) |  Eckhart Tolle and Don Miguel Ruiz inform this workshop about connecting to our being, letting go of judgements and distorted perceptions and breaking free from the incessant babbling ego mind which is based on fear and separation.  Sheila suggests that awakening to the truth of who we are is the only chance we have for true happiness and freedom. This awakening can only happen in silence where love is born, where everything is born. 

Nov 13th | Sarah Bird | Nonviolent Communication | “The objective of Nonviolent Communication is not to change people and their behaviour in order to get your way: It is to establish relationships based on honesty and empathy which will eventually fulfil everyone’s need.” - Marshall Rosenberg - The Center for Nonviolent Communication
