This evening with welcome Father Peter McVerry
He and Paul will have a chat this evening on positive ways to battle any addictions and help us be free.
At the start we will have the chance to listen to the series Reconnecting developed by intuitive healer Marie Angeline Lascaux. This series explores how addiction alienates and injures Irish families and communities and then reconnects us through a journey of healing and shared understandings.
There are many forms of addiction: how many of us reach for our electronic device as soon as we wake up? how many of us can’t function without caffeine or look for something sweet to bring our energy back up? how often have do we throw ourselves in work or other activities to fill a void when in fact what helps most at those times is to stop, make time alone, allow our feelings to emerge, cry of we need to and breathe consciously. With mindfulness, we can bring the breath to each and every cell of our being and we can let ourselves of the hook.
Father Peter Mc Verry is the founder of the Peter Mc Verry Trust and has dedicated his life to helping those in crisis. Through his tireless work with the homeless he has helped many addicts and their families. His words are filled with Love and humanity. You cannot but be moved and inspired.
We will have refreshing cold pressed juices at the break courtesy of Sisú

More about Peter
Fr Peter McVerry has been working with young people experiencing homelessness for more than 30 years. In 1974, Fr McVerry moved to Summerhill in Dublin’s north inner-city where he witnessed firsthand the problems of homelessness and deprivation.
In 1979, he opened a small hostel to provide accommodation for homeless boys between the ages of 12-16. Four years later, he founded The Arrupe Society, a charity to provide housing and support for young people experiencing homelessness as a response to the growing numbers of individuals becoming homeless in Dublin.
