You may remember last year we had some important visitors around this time…
Both Queen Elizabeth and Barack Obama created a very positive buzz – most would agree that they lifted our hearts in a time when positivity was in short supply.
This Spring again we are priviledged by two important leaders – not political leaders, not figures of power on the world stage, but leaders of hearts, and inspirational figures for humanity’s inner journey….
MARTINE BATCHELOR ….. a delightfully humourous, skillful and compassionate meditation teacher with whom I did a 7-day retreat in Devon last summer, is leading a 2-day retreat in Oscailt, Ballsbridge on 26 and 27 May.

Check them out. If you want your heart to be lifted in a different way this spring. If you are looking for some inspiration/ encouragement to keep your inner life on track, they may be just what you need. But even if you don’t get there in person, I am sure their presence and the practice they lead will have a ripple effect on all of us!
