Meditation talk will be heartfelt

Brendan Keane

A heartfulness meditation event will take place in Enniscorthy on Sunday, September 22.

The event will be held in the Community House in Loreto Village, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

A spokesperson for the organisers said those in attendance will have a chance to experience heartfulness, relaxation and meditation with trainer Simon Sheridan.

She said it will also enable those present to channel their inner creativity during an art and meditation workshop with renowned artist Marja van Kampen.

The event will culminate with some light refreshments and a bite to eat.

Facilitator, Simon Sheridan, has been practising heartfulness for almost 15 years.

Last year he travelled to India where he became a heartfulness trainer and through this workshop he is inviting local people to experience and learn some simple, effective, relaxation and meditation techniques aimed at reducing stress, calming the mind and improving quality of life.

Ms van Kampen's art and meditation workshop will follow Ms Sheridan's event.

She is a fulltime painter and printmaker who has an art studio in Enniscorthy.

Her work has been exhibited nationwide and internationally.

The event is open to everyone over 18-year-of-age and no prior experience is needed to participate in the workshops.

Admission to the workshops will be free-of-charge, however, booking is essential.
