South Leinster VCs: Supporting Our Wellbeing & Resilience as Volunteers with Dee Hennessy

19/05/2021 @ 11:00 – 12:00
Supporting our Wellbeing and Resilience as Volunteers – Mindful Facilitation

The theme of National Volunteer Week 2021 is “Health and Wellness”.

South Leinster Volunteer Centres are taking this opportunity promote self-care and the positive wellbeing of our volunteers. Volunteers give so much of themselves for others but need to take steps to look after their own wellbeing too.

This workshop is designed to give volunteers the tools to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.

Facilitator: Dee Hennessy

Dee Hennessy is a Master Facilitator, Mindfulness and Spirituality Teacher. Having spent years studying both Eastern and Western Wisdom traditions, Dee’s work draws on these teachings and integrates them with the emerging evidence-based neuroscientific data that our wellbeing as humans is best supported by practices that nourish and support our ‘Be –ing’, never more so than in this time of over-emphasis on ‘Busy-ness’.
