Serving the Community of Leixlip, Co Kildare

RSS 2.0


The entire community of Leixlip is grieving following the tragic death of Ana. Here at LYCC we knew Ana well as she was a member of many clubs at the Centre and was regularly in and out. We at the Community Centre sympathise deeply with all of the Kreigal family at this time.

In Leixlip the events of the last few days have greatly impacted all of us, those who knew her and those who did not. Ana will remain in all our hearts and minds as we try and come to terms with this tragedy.

Friday Mindfulness and Meditation 16 & 23 Mar

Mindfulness is the art of becoming aware of things as they are rather than as we wish they were, with a sense of gentleness and kindness, rather than judging ourselves, as we so often do.

Friday morning Mindfulness is an introduction to Mindful practices such as:

– What is Mindfulness?
– Mindful breathing meditation
– Guided meditations
– Mindful walking meditation
– The attitude of gratitude
– Encouraging a nourishing relationship with yourself
– Creating a deeper sense of peace, calm and relaxation

These Mindful practices will help us learn to approach our life with a Mindful smile :). Mindful practices can help with reducing insomnia, reducing stress and anxiety levels and increasing our levels of peace and happiness, plus so much more. A truly great addition to your week.

This event will be facilitated by Danielle Scanlon, a Mindful Meditation Facilitator and Healing Therapist since 2014. This course is open to all, experienced, novices, and the curious.

Cost is €30.00 for two weeks or €20.00 for one week, payable on the first morning. Contact me for more information or to book your place. Booking is essential. Looking forward to hearing from you.
