Spirituality and the New Cosmology Study Group

Date:            First Monday of every month from September to May

Cost:             Free of Charge

Time:            7.30pm to 9pm

To book:       Sr Marian O’Sullivan:

This group has been in existence since 2002. It meets on the first Monday of every month from September to May from 7.30 to 9.00 p.m. Over the years the focus has shifted from learning the story of our universe now made available to us by scientists to discussing its implications for our spiritual lives. The group chooses its own study material and is self-directed. New members are always welcome. The only proviso is a willingness to study. We always end with a convivial cup of tea.

Circle dance is dance done in a circle to musical accompaniment.  Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures. It helps to strengthen community and it is often an experience of joy as well as the freedom of dancing. The music comes from around the world and the dances are generally very simple.  They can be full of fun and also can be very meditative and beautiful.
