Waiting in Mindful Hope

 Advent Journey


Four weeks of Video Reflections for the

Season of Waiting


We are delighted to be teaming up with Deirdre Ni Chinneide in offering this four week retreat based on the above best selling title. 

In weekly Videos sessions, we will explore the rich and beautiful season of Advent. 

Using Music, Poetry, Meditation,  Ritual  and Scripture ,we explore the call to walk each step in the company of Mary and her courage, fear, surrender and acceptance  of a  birthing that took her by surprise, but opened the world to the gift of Love .


We are excited to share this journey and to offer you the time and gift to receive again that calling and invitation to say YES to the gift of who you are and can be ...

We hope that our video presentation  (commencing on Nov 28), which can be accessed at your own time each week in the comfort of your home ,offers you a gentle stillness, to receive a very special gift this Christmas.


Facilitators  Martina Lehane Sheehan,  Pat Sheehan and Deirdre Ni Chinneide .

Martina, Pat and Deirdre are all trained therapists and spiritual directors with a passion and commitment to the spiritual path.


 We suggest you obtain a copy of the book ‘Waiting in Mindful Hope’ as a companion to the retreat

(available at www.veritasbooksonline.com )

Commencing on Sunday Nov 29th

Cost for the four sessions is 100 Euro.
