About the training facilitator: The Sanctuary is a meditation centre for social change in the heart of Dublin City. It is a charity founded by Sr. Stan Kennedy in 1998, long before meditation or mindfulness was on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

Most importantly, it was inspired by Stan’s own personal practice of contemplation and meditation and its ability to sustain Stan in her commitment to work with homeless people and her other social innovations.

The Sanctuary has evolved organically over the years to include mindfulness programmes for schools, programmes for carers and those working on the frontlines of society. Moreover, it offers tailored programmes for commercial organisations, charities, workplace and management teams.

During this Covid 19 pandemic we have been busy offering programmes to hospital teams, youth workers and supporting the mental wellbeing of the Dublin community and beyond through its free online offerings of practice sessions and workshops.

All its courses are inspired by a deep and heartfelt wish and vision to change culture through compassionate action, ultimately helping to create a more resilient society.
