Decoration for Luisne Centre

Luisne in Bray offers a space for Meditation, Mindfulness, Sound Baths, Yoga, Tai Chi, Sacred Dance and Massage Therapy

Luisne 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.

TaiChi/QiGong

Wednesdays 10:00am – 11:15am – Ongoing

Beginner Session & Intermediate Session, held in separate rooms

Taught by Siobhan Casey & Monica O’Loughlin. TaiChi/QiGong, using mind body awareness techniques, teaches us posture alignment and breath control to help us remember and restore our deeper natural breathing, leading to a more relaxed nervous system. This, combined with focused movements, leads to improved energy flow to the internal organs and so assists us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually in the movement towards greater health, happiness and enthusiasm for life’s goals.

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

To Book: Please contact Marie Andre at marieandrehelga@gmail.com or text the office on 086 051 7575.
