Eastern and Midlands Regional Weekend

Posted on

Over 30 GROW members from the two regions attended the weekend, which focused on the theme of ‘Spirituality’.

Among the highlights was the planting of a GROW tree in the gardens of Dalgan Park symbolising growth and interconnectedness. GROW CEO, Michele  Kerrigan, Regional Manager Ruairi Powell and Finance Manager Audrey McLoughlin were among those who participated in the tree planting.20180512_133612

There were also two wonderful testimonies of struggle and recovery from Jacinta (Arklow group) and Helen (Tullamore group). Heartfelt thanks to both for sharing their stories.

Ger Clarke, a Spiritual Ecologist who works at Dalgan Park, introduced all to labyrinth walking on the grounds of Dalgan Park and also led an educational and spiritual tour to explore the beauty of nature.

Other activities included a ‘Blue Book Quiz’ on Friday evening and music by local musicians on Saturday.
