From the Desk of the CEO
What a great start to the year and we’ve had a very busy Spring Term here.
It’s good to connect with you coming up to Easter time and just ahead of the new Summer 2019 programme. This is a short term because of the two Bank Holiday weekends, two Tara events and a weekend where Mary Gormley has booked the Great Hall at Tara for a Midsummer Angel Workshop with Chrissy Astell, tickets are available for this 1st June event from Nature Trail, in Omagh.
In the hurly burly of all that is happening around us in the world, what better way is there to focus on the present moment and consider what we do here at Tara and how it can be of real interest and benefit to you, mindful of the opportunities available for personal enrichment. Also, notice our ‘look ahead’ to the rest of the year with our advance notices of events, for Autumn/Winter 2019 and beyond to Spring 2020. We are confident there will be something happening here at Tara to suit you and we are well prepared for the richness of Autumn.
Tara has been nominated as a beneficiary to the funds raised through the Darkness Into Light (DIL) Walk, organised by Brian McCarron, Dromore. The Walk takes place from Dromore on May 11th starting at 4.15am. You can register to take part by visiting the Darkness Into Light website www.darknessintolight.ie. We are delighted and most grateful to be associated with Pieta House, who do such great work in the area of suicide and self-harm.
Many of you will already know that part of Tara’s services on a holistic basis, has always been and will continue to be suicide related, both in prevention and in support for those bereaved in this way.
And finally, we end with an image (on the back page) of the black hole, previously unseen by anyone, a mind blowing symbol of what making connections can allow us to see, an homage, of course, to Einstein.
My best regards to you all, wishing you a peaceful Easter break.
