Luisne Offers a space for Meditation, Mindfulness, Sound Baths, Yoga, Tai Chi, Sacred Dance and Massage Therapy
Our approach is holistic, inclusive, and welcoming.
The word ‘Luisne’ is an old Gaelic word meaning the first blush of light before dawn breaks.
We chose this name for the Centre as we work towards the dawn of a new consciousness of our sacred and deep interconnection with all life forms and the sense of respect and responsibility that results.

To explore this we will use Kum Nye movements as well as specific breathing practices.”

Meditation with Sacred Mandalas with Marie Andre
Taster Session to be announced
Mandala is Sanskrit for circle and in its most basic form, is a circle contained within a square and arranged into sections that are all organized around a single, central point.
In Hinduism and Buddhism, the belief is that by entering the mandala and proceeding towards its centre, you are guided through the cosmic process of transforming the universe from one of suffering into one of joy and happiness. The mandala can be understood in two different ways: externally as a visual representation of the universe or internally as a guide for several practices including meditation. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention of the practitioner and as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space and an aid to meditation. Marie Andre will gently guide you into relaxation and meditation as you complete the mandala template.
Cost: €20 for taster session 90 minutes
Usually offered once per term
Saturday July 1st
This session begins with quick walking outdoors, followed by 20 minutes of sitting meditation Zen practice. Then we practice mindful walking followed by another 20 minutes of meditation. After a brief silent tea break, the pattern is repeated. Many participants find this group meditation session rich and empowering, as well as affirming of their own meditation practice.
