About the Open Heart Buddhist Group Weekly Meetings

Our weekly group meetings are held each Monday downstairs in the yoga studio. There is a period of meditation, then we continue with a period of discussion and finally a session of chanting or Kirtan (singing with musical accompaniment).

The session is not a drop-in evening so if you are interested in finding out more, please contact us first (see below for contact details).

We run a beginners/newcomers course (depending on demand) at Oscailt on Monday evenings to help introduce beginners and newcomers to the practice. It helps to read the following before attending the beginners course:

Tibetan Heart Yoga

Cost

The suggest donation is €5 for the Sangha meeting and €10 for the beginners course.

About Open Heart

Open Heart is a dharma-method that combines ageless principles and yogic knowledge with a modern and pragmatic approach. Our system unifies the ancient and modern to help our practitioners to come into deep understanding of themselves, for the benefit and liberation of all sentient beings. We do not claim to have invented anything new but we have looked into and explored the old ways. We hold the teachings of Buddhism, Buddha dharma, in high regard but do not wish to carry ritualistic or cultural traits from other times and places with us. Instead, we think that people of each time and culture need a way that they can relate to and understand, with a concrete outcome.

As Buddhists of the great vehicle (SKT. Mahayana) and Vajra vehicle (SKT. Vajrayana) we subscribe to common Buddhist principles such as The Four Noble Truths, The Cycle of Rebirth, Refuge in the Five Jewels and Bodhicitta-motivation. Through commitment and regular practice of our teachings we can gain faith and confidence that full liberation, attainment of Buddhahood, is possible in this single lifetime, no matter who or where you are.

Mindful­ness Teacher

Fidelma Farley

Fidelma is an accredited Breathworks Mindfulness teacher (since 2008) and an accredited Life Coach (since 2016). My mindfulness and compassion practice, as well as my Buddhist practice, have sustained and nurtured me through life’s ups and downs, including family life and periods of mental and physical health difficulties. As a coach, I am regularly coached myself and find the process invaluable in keeping my life and work in tune with my values. No matter what your circumstances, I believe strongly that living a life that is meaningful to you is the foundation of wellbeing. In my mindfulness, compassion and coaching work, I help people to become more self-aware and kinder to themselves, and to grow, develop, thrive and flourish in their own unique way. I run courses and workshops (online and in person) in mindfulness; mindfulness for chronic pain and long-term health conditions; mindful eating; one-to-one mindfulness; one-to-one coaching and coaching in nature.

Abi Beri

Integrative Holistic Therapist

Hello, I'm Abi. With certifications in Integrative Holistic Therapy and Family Constellation Therapy, my journey into the realms of energy dynamics has been driven by a deep-seated passion for understanding its influence on our lives. From a young age, I've been attuned to the subtleties of energy and have dedicated myself to exploring its healing possibilities. I staunchly advocate for the transformative potential of energy work, viewing myself as a channel through which life force energy is directed to foster healing and well being in others.

My approach as a Holistic Therapist is to leverage various energy healing methodologies, aiming to rectify imbalances on physical, emotional, or mental levels by addressing the root energy discrepancies. I am devoted to creating a supportive and nurturing environment for my clients, guiding them towards holistic improvements in their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It's a collaborative effort, where I empower clients to unlock their healing capabilities and personal development.

If you're navigating challenges like chronic pain, stress, or emotional hurdles, I'm here to support your journey back to equilibrium and vitality.

I offer the following therapies:
