Mandala is the ancient Sanskrit word for circle, and is seen by Tibetans as a diagram of the cosmos. It is used by Native Americans in healing rituals and in Christian cathedrals the labyrinth is a mandalic pattern used as a tool for meditation. An archetypal symbol of wholeness, the mandala was used as a therapeutic art tool by psychologist Carl Jung, who believed creating mandalas helped patients to make the unconscious conscious.</p> <p>In creating a mandala we open ourselves to all the possibilities that exist inside and outside of us.<br /><br />During this Mandala Workshop each of us we will concentrate on creating our own personal mandala that will help us deal with a particular issue, or help us to uncover our deepest hearts desires. This gentle workshop is open to anyone, no previous experience of Mindfulness, or Mandalas are required.<br /><br />Please bring a notebook for journaling</p></div> Thu, 19 Jan 2017 11:31:17 +0000 deehennessy01 43777 at Dee Hennessy providing supervision, facilitation and support to the Voluntary Sectors.

The Wheel featured in the piece making some general observations from the perspective of good governance principles. &nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The good news is that prior to the broadcast the <em>Charity Regulator</em> issued a statement noting that "concerns were raised in relation to...[charity name]...and following our initial assessment...of a number of issues regarding the governance and financial management of the charity...we formed the view that this is an offence under the charities act 2009".</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The <em>Charity Regulator</em> has also announced that it has instructed "the charity trustees to take immediate steps to ensure that proper books of account are maintained and that procedures are introduced which will facilitate them in providing the relevant scrutiny and oversight of the charity's financial management".</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The Wheel greatly welcomes this course of action by the <em>Charity Regulator</em>. We would also like to draw your attention to the very positive fact that we now have an empowered regulator in place to take early action when such incidents arise in the charity sector. We believe that this kind of action will make a big contribution to restoring trust and confidence in the sector - hopefully preventing stories such as this one from running on and on and becoming focuses for unfair generalisations about governance practice in the sector.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>We will continue to keep our members informed of further developments should they arise.</div></div> charities governance Ivan Cooper regulation RTE One Sector Big Picture Transparency Tue, 17 Jan 2017 14:38:18 +0000 femi 43767 at 9th International Dementia Conference Dublin (15th and 16th May, 2017).
