From the Desk of the CEO
Friends of Tara
Happy New Year to you all. The end of the old year and the start of the new, can bring with it reflections and feelings about endings and new beginnings alike, letting go of the old and welcoming in the new. The excitement of the unknown and what the future may bring and, in equal measure, the feelings of discomfort of leaving behind the familiar and what feels ‘safe’, often called the ‘comfort zone’.
As Jim Cogley says, “Life is lived at the edge of your comfort zone”.
I am aware of the significance of 2020 – a new decade, a new vision, ‘twenty-twenty’ often being the phrase we use to talk about having clear and accurate vision, being ‘keenly or acutely perceptive’.
Life is about growth and renewal and, at times when we look back, it can be clear to see where the difficult, challenging times occur, often turn out to be where the greatest expansion of our own personal awareness has taken place.
Moving into the New Year, here is your Tara Centre Spring Term 2020 Brochure detailing the range of Therapeutic Services, our upcoming Workshops and Seminars, our ongoing Programmes of Meditation and Yoga, and the Support Groups who meet here regularly at Tara.
A special January highlight has been organised for Tara by Rachel Mallon, ‘An Inspirational Talk’ at St Enda’s, Healy Park on Friday 24th January 2020 with Declan Coyle, a great Friend of Tara and author/creator of The Green Platform. All proceeds will go to the Tara Centre.
A quick mention that Bernard Henry of the Irish Anger Management Society will be returning to Tara to deliver his specialist 3 day Programme called ‘Temper Your Anger’, see p9 for more detail.
I want to acknowledge the strength, energy, hard work and dedication of the whole Team here at Tara for what has been a very busy and fruitful year, thank you. All of us together working in the service of …”peace, healing and holistic wellbeing”.
My best wishes to you all for peace, prosperity and contentment in 2020.
