The well respected Chrysalis team (based in Wicklow) are running a series of one day workshop retreats for people impacted by redundancy or the recession.
At only €20 including lunch and refreshments these will be well worthwhile. A nice gift for a person in your life who is stressed?
”A support day for people in transition from redundancy or living with the effects of the recession. The purpose of these days is to meet with others who are going through similar life challenges, take a break from your daily routine and recharge your body, mind and spirit. These relaxing days offer time to take stock, review where you are and set your intentions for the future. The nurturing environment of Chrysalis is an ideal backdrop for this day of retreat and renewal. We genuinely want to offer practical support for these times and the day is priced to encourage maximum participation.”
On first two of these days, five people will be able to volunteer for outdoor activity and have lunch free.
