Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy, a religious Sister of Charity, is the founder of the Sanctuary. Her vision for the Sanctuary was to provide a reflective contemplative, beautiful place for people in the midst of our frantic busy, world. A place and space where they could be re-energised and nourished in body, mind and soul.
Since 1998, the Sanctuary has been developing a range of courses and workshops in the area of mindfulness and meditation, yoga and movement, creativity and well-being. In particular, it has developed a range of programmes working with young people and those who are a vulnerable stage in their lives.
The Sanctuary, located in Dublin city, now has a complete programme of day, evening and weekend courses and workshops from both secular and spiritual perspectives.
