New Year’s Message from the Chairperson

The Directors, Members and staff of the Tara centre wish to take the opportunity to wish you all a safe, healthy and peaceful New Year.

We enter another year when a new variant of Covid continues to affect the day to day lives of so many. In 2022 we at Tara will continue to support all those who come through our doors by developing and delivering a wide range of holistic, healing and life enhancing initiatives. We will also shortly be looking at our spring programme and when ready details will be published on our web-site and in the local press. The content of the programme will as always be influenced by factors such as any Covid restrictions which may apply and our own Tara risk assessments which include our capacity to ensure the safety and well-being of all involved.

As we move forward into this new year it is also worth noting that the Tara vision remains as relevant today as it did when its co-founders Maura Twohig and Mary Daly established Tara some 25 years ago. There are a number of important elements to the present Tara vision statement including that of:

“encouraging a deepening awareness of this amazing universe – manifest and unmanifest- which sustains and embraces the whole community of life and within which we, humans, discover and cherish our true identity and life’s purpose”.

This deepening awareness is reflected in the ethos of the Tara Centre which remains one of reverence and respect for life, compassion for pain and suffering and a conviction that what hurts can heal. Let us go forward in 2022 recognising the need to take care of ourselves, our family, friends, neighbours and the world around us.

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it.”

—Mother Teresa
