Welcome

Greystones Cancer Support

Your local support group covering Greystones, Delgany, Newtown, Kilcoole and Newcastle

Can we help you or someone you know?

Everyone has a Story to Tell.....

They say everyone has a story, or even a book inside them. Or it could be a poem, short story, flash fiction, even a play. Whatever way you want to write it, it’s not always that easy, Words don’t come in a wave of inspiration. There are ways to tap into our imagination or our autobiography, there are techniques we can learn.

Why not come along to our class and we will help you get it out onto the page. A group of like-minded people meet every Wednesday in a  careful and caring way.

Please join facilitator, Frances Browner, at 7 o’clock for one and a half hours of story and fun.

Mindfulness Class – on Zoom

This class creates a space where we come together to practice, to share and to support each other throughout the challenges of daily life as well as to celebrate and appreciate our blessings. Everyone is welcome and no previous experience is necessary.

A short description of the Benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation in the words of a senior Teacher:

Pema describes how “just leaving a little gap” is the key to working with our minds

“One of the most effective things we can do when we see the gathering storm of our habitual tendencies is the practice of pausing, or creating a gap. We stop and take three conscious breaths, and the world has a chance to open up to us in that gap. We allow space into our state of mind. Meditation practice itself is a way to create gaps. Every time you realize you are thinking and you let your thoughts go, you are creating a gap. Every time the breath goes out, you are creating a gap. If you don’t fill up your practice time with worrying and obsessing and all that kind of thing, you have time to experience the blessing of your surroundings. You can just sit there quietly. Then silence will dawn on you and the sacredness of the space will penetrate.”
