A gentle, guided walk with a focus on friendship and mindfulness

Walk of Wellbeing in Raheny

A series of events to encourage and support positive mental health will take place in the Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough this spring. Organised by the Revd Garth Bunting, Rural Dean of St Mary, and Canon Lesley Robinson, Rural Dean of Fingal, the events are part of the Church of Ireland’s MindMatters project.

Free talks, entitled ‘What is Mental Ill–Health? Signs, symptoms and what to do about them’, will take place in each Rural Deanery. The first, on Wednesday February 8 at 8pm, will take place in St John the Baptist Parish Centre, Seafield Road, Clontarf, Dublin 3. The second will be on Friday March 10 at 8pm in Castleknock Parish Centre, Castleknock Road, Dublin 15. The speaker will be Cariosa Walsh, ICP accredited individual and group therapist, and the talks are aimed at resourcing those struggling with their own mental health or who are supporting others who are.

Walks of Wellbeing – gentle guided walks with a focus on friendship and mindfulness – will take place in three different locations in April and May. On Sunday April 2 the Revd David White will lead a walk in St Anne’s Park in Raheny (meet at the Red Stables) from 3pm to 5pm. On Sunday May 7 the Revd Ruth Noble will lead a walk in the Phoenix Park (meet at the Papal Cross) from 3pm to 5pm. On Saturday May 27 the Revd Brian O’Reilly will lead a walk in Glendalough (meet at St John’s Church, Laragh) from 11am to 4pm. Walkers in Glendalough are asked to bring water and a packed lunch.
