For over 25 years I have been an independent workshop leader in the fields of nonviolence and community arts, helping people, young and old, reconnect with creativity and compassion. For 10 years I have taught compassion-centred mindfulness meditation to thousands of people. More recently I have been studying body/mind healing through the nourishment and detoxification protocols of Medical Medium.
I have experienced over 20,000 hours on silent retreat in the Buddhist tradition and lived and worked in many monasteries and retreat centres. My daily meditation practice and reverence for God and Mother Earth are the ground on which I stand.
I grew up in Northern Ireland during the war. In my twenties I left an MA in Fine Art to move to the Donegal Gaeltacht, then travelled all around the world to diverse cultures and landscapes. Since then Donegal has been home: where I live an ecological and healthy life.

Dana means 'generosity of spirit' in the Buddhist tradition. It is one of the core foundations of a spiritual life.
From my simple home I offer all my healing work as dana, which means that I do not put a monetary price on it. I have been helped by my teachers in this way and now I help others.
The tradition of dana recognises our interconnectedness and is meant to strengthen community and personal integrity. It is important that teachers not withhold support due to financial circumstances, nor encourage people to take without giving something in return.
Therefore, if you have money to give, give what you would for an equivalent 1-1 therapy or retreat, and if you do not have money to give, give in other doable ways.
