The very colourful and welcoming door of the Drogheda Meditation Centre in Clogherhead.
The Drogheda Meditation Centre is actually in Clogherhead but they have been running drop-in sessions at the Barbican Centre in Drogheda for some years which will be resuming on Monday July 6 after a break caused by the Covid 19 pandemic.
One of the Centre’s mindfulness teachers, David Culver, told Drogheda Life that during lockdown they are doing what they could to carry out their courses using Zoom technology but he was looking forward to getting back to “business as usual” on July 6.
There is no set fee for the drop-in sessions at the Barbican, they are run on a donation basis. “We are seeking to provide a service to the community to help reduce the levels of anxiety and stress that many people are feeling right now” David said.
David is also hoping to get a five week anxiety and stress management course going, also in the Barbican, which will teach participants mindfulness practices that will help them to manage anxiety and the daily stresses of life.
