Full Circle Awakening - Fran Bennett


Full Circle Awakening ~ Transcending and Including Your Personal Self

Francis Bennett is a former Trappist Monk who spent many years in monastic orders in contemplation, surrender and service in search of the presence of God. Since experiencing a radical shift in perception during mass, Francis left the monastery and has been teaching around the world. Francis lives a life of devotion to the compassionate heart of pure being and it is this lived freedom that provided the foundation for her to begin a very personal transformation, coming out as transgender in 2016.

Fran’s signature teaching is Full Circle Awakening, through which she guides and encourages us to truly live the wisdom of the compassionate heart. Her own journey of transformation is an example of a life lived in deep acceptance to the truth of her heart. Francis has recently said that it would not have been possible for her to transition gender in a public teaching role were it not for the abiding foundation of an awakened heart.

Much of post-modern spiritual teaching about awakening has focused almost exclusively on transcending our personal self and dwelling in the absolute. However, full-circle awakening not only transcends but also includes the personal sense of self.

In this event we’ll be reflecting on this integral journey of transcendence and embodiment; the transpersonal that always includes the personal.

Join us for an evening of talks, guided practice and Q&A.

About Francis Bennett

Monastic Life and Training
Francis Bennett was a Roman Catholic, Trappist monk for a number of years. She lived in two monasteries of the Trappist Order in the US and was also a member of an urban, contemplative monastic community originally founded in Paris, France in 1975. She has lived in France at several monasteries, including Saint Gervais et Protais in Paris, at Mont Saint Michel along the coast of the English Channel and in Canada at a small monastic community in Montreal Quebec. She received a five and a half year monastic/spiritual formation with the Trappists before she made her vows as a monk at Gethsemani Abbey in Trappist  Kentucky. She graduated from the Pontifical College Josephinum with a BA in Philosophy and completed a two year residency in Clinical Pastoral Education with Ohio Health Hospital System in Columbus, Ohio in 2004. She has worked in ministry in the area of pastoral Care in the hospice movement, as a hospital chaplain and in pastoral care of the sick and dying in parish settings.

Buddhist Teaching and Practice
She has lead retreats in both the Vipassana Buddhist Tradition and in the Christian mystical/contemplative Tradition. She has been offering spiritual direction and helping guide people in their spiritual quest for a number of years. She was an avid spiritual seeker throughout her entire time as a contemplative monk and studied deeply in both the Theravadan Buddhist practice of Vipassana, working primarily with Mahathera, the venerable Bhante Henepola Gunaratana (from whom she received a temporary monastic ordination  in 1999-2001) and with several western Vipassana teachers. She studied Zen and  practiced with Soen Sa Nim, the founder of the Providence Zen Center, in a kind of “correspondence course study” via the telephone, with Charlotte “Joko” Beck of the San Diego Zen Center and briefly with several other Zen teachers in both the Rinzai and Soto traditions of Japanese Zen.

A Radical Shift in Perception
In 2010, while in the middle of a Church Service in her monastery in Montreal, Francis suddenly experienced what she has come to call, “a radical perceptual shift in consciousness”, in which she discovered the ever present presence of spacious, pure awareness. She came to see that this awareness is actually the unchanging essence of who she really is and always has been; the Supreme Self, talked about by many sages and saints from many spiritual traditions down through the ages. She also came to see simultaneously, that this vast, infinite sense of presence at the center of her being (and at the center of the being of everyone else on the planet) is actually not at all separate from the presence of God, which she had been looking for during her many years as a monk and spiritual seeker.

Spiritual Teacher
Francis is now living a “new incarnation” as a spiritual teacher. She offers a blend of the Buddhist Traditions she studied, the contemplative Christian mystical tradition which she lived during her many years in monastic life, as well as the Hindu Advaita-Vedanta teaching of Sri Ramana Maharshi, who has had a profound influence on Francis.

She is also interested in offering spiritual accompaniment, encouragement and teaching to the LGBTQI  community in light of her recent coming out as transgender.

Over this introductory series of four weekends, your two experienced teachers will take you through the delights and discipline of telling true life tales, guiding you gently to explore what qualities and skills are needed to tell these stories. There will be time to discuss questions such as Has anything worth speaking about ever happened to me? Who would listen to my story? What makes it different from a casual reminiscence in a pub? Is it the same as telling a traditional story? Do you have to tell EVERYTHING?

Let's Address Bullying - John Lonergan with Dr Genevieve Murray


Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behaviour. It happens among school aged children, in the workplace and in the home and involves a real or perceived power imbalance. Victims of bullying and those that bully others may have serous lasting problems. Bullies often suffer from low self-esteem and struggle to maintain and develop social relationships.

Children who are bullied are more likely to experience depression and anxiety, increased feelings of sadness and loneliness, changes in sleep and eating patterns, and loss of interest in activities they used to enjoy. These issues may persist into adulthood and, at its worst, bullying has driven children and young people to self harm and event suicide

Bullying is all too common in the workplace. While there is plenty of legislation to protect workers, many employees can nonetheless feel nervous about acknowledging that bullying is happening, let alone reporting it.

In this seminar former Governor of Mountjoy Prison John Lonergan will shine a light on what causes bullying behaviour and how to deal with it.


Dr Genevieve Murray will talk about the importance of dignity and respect in the workplace

John Lonergan - In his talks John finds himself coming back to one theme: the importance of compassion. He entered the prison service in 1968 and in the years that followed, as he saw human nature at its worst - and often, unexpectedly, at its best. He developed a deep understanding both of human nature and of Irish society.

Now, after 42 years in the service, 24 of them as the most senior prison officer in the country, John tells his fascinating life story in his book, The Governor - from his idyllic childhood in rural Tipperary, to coming face to face with the darkest aspects of Irish life, to grappling with the politics of working in a service that was the plaything of officials and politicians. His description of life in the prison service is not only a gripping account of humanity at its rawest, but is also invaluable for anyone in a management position anywhere. Revealing, surprising and inspiring, his book gives a unique insight into modern Ireland.

Dr Genevieve Murray -  is a Consultant, Trainer, Researcher, Lecturer and Certified Mediator, specialising in workplace interpersonal conflicts. 
Genevieve works with both employees and employers whom express the need for support regarding workplace conflict issues. Often employees and employers are unaware of the effects of workplace conflict on both the individuals and organisations well-being.
Genevieve is available to assist employers in compiling and implementing their Dignity in the Workplace Policies.

Dr Tony Humphreys - Understanding Teenagers, Sometimes Wild Always Wise

Tony Humphreys2.jpg

Adolescence is about becoming adult. Depending on the teenager’s experiences in infancy and childhood, the teenage years can be a rollercoaster of emotional highs and lows or a relatively smooth ride into maturity. The level of maturity of the significant adults in teenagers’ lives – parents and teachers – is critical to how well teenagers manage the many challenges – physical, emotional, sexual, intellectual, behavioural, social, creative and spiritual – that come their way.

Attention to what lies hidden behind teenager’s distressing responses is required for teenagers to begin to make progress towards mature adulthood. Parents and teachers need to understand that when young people are troubled and troubling they are not trying to make life difficult for parents, teachers and others; they are trying to communicate how difficult life is for them.

Themes covered during the seminar will be:

  • The wisdom of adolescence
  • Teenagers’ search for identity
  • Parents’/teachers’ defensive behaviours that threaten teenagers’ wellbeing
  • Helping teenagers who are troubled and troubling
  • Identifying teenagers who are suffering inner turmoil
  • Parental ‘letting go’ and teenagers’ ‘leave-taking’

Mind Myth and Magic

andy austin.jpg

South Dublin Venue TBC

Fee: €199

This two-day practical workshop, facilitated by Andrew T Austin  is a Masterclass in the systemic organisation of the metaphoric environment and how we can use this to our advantage

When we elicit the metaphor and ask what is to the left, what is to the right etc, the way the information is organised follows some precise principles (i.e. systemic organisation). This isn’t something that is commonly taught on the Metaphor of Movement trainings but is something explored extensively in the sister project of The Historia Illius Itineris.

There are various religious, spiritual occult and magical traditions that embody these organisational principles which are often then celebrated through ritual and ceremony, often without conscious awareness by anyone involved.

In this experimental workshop we will be taking one such set of rituals, that of Solomonic magic known as The Goetia.  We will learn how the formulas embodied in this practice are relevant to the metaphoric environment and the manner in which information is organised within it.

The workshop is split into two halves:

First Day

·         An outline of the Hermetic principle of magic.

·         Elemental attributions and positions within the metaphoric environment.

·         An exploration of Goetic principles.

·         Design and layout of the physical working space.

·         The tools and techniques of evocation and invocation.

·         An in-depth examination of the formulae of Goetic evocation and invocation.

·         A walk-through of the Goetic evocation process.

Second Day

·         Quick review.

·         Adapting the Goetic formula to an application of Metaphors of Movement.

·         The anthropomorphication of experience in metaphor taxonomy.

·         Evocation and mastery over your own personal demons.

For those of you who have studied Metaphors of Movement level 2, you will be familiar with the taxonomical grouping of “anthropomorphications.”  This is where there is a creature, person or living thing that exists within the metaphoric environment that appears to have a life of its own.  You will be aware that this is representative of both the thing itself and an organisation of people to whom the owner has the same relationship.

The easiest example is if I were to be in my metaphor of standing at a crossroads and in front of me stands my wife.  It is both my wife, and an organisation of people to whom I have the same relationship. i.e. I am married to my job and regard the people at work as family.

The monster to my left might be both the monster and all my ex-wives, for example, and so on.

The problem is that most people tend to be at the mercy of their anthropomorphications in their metaphors. This workshop aims to change all that with a bit of witchery and lots of jiggery pokery.

I am certain this will be the most unusual workshop you have ever participated in.

It is highly advisable that attendees read the Goetic text prior to attending this course. See: This text may seem like a lot of nonsense, but on the first day we will decode the formula from the Goetia.

Making the Leap: The Journey of Spiritual Awakening

What does it mean to be spiritually awakened? What are the main aspects of spiritual awakening and how can we cultivate them? Poet and spiritual psychologist Steve Taylor will explore some of the themes of his recent books The Calm Center and The Leap.

Steve Taylor PhD is a senior lecturer in psychology at Leeds Beckett University and the author of several best-selling books on spirituality and psychology, including The Fall, Waking From Sleep and The Leap. For the last five years he has been included in Mind, Body, Spirit magazine’s list of the ‘100 most spiritually influential living people.’ Eckhart Tolle has published Steve's last two books and describes his work as 'an important contribution to the shift in consciousness that is happening at this time on our planet.'

Dr Edward Kelly - The Third Act

  • Talbot Hotel (Stillorgan Park) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This is for those who are in transition or who are contemplating a transition from their second to third act in life.

In this interactive seminar, Dr Edward Kelly describes how advances in human longevity over the past 100 years have created a whole new third act in our lives, one that is now as potentially different to our second act as our second act was to our first act. Living on average 30 years longer than our great-grandparents, this new gift of time has ‘political, social, economic and personal’ implications that we are only beginning to understand. 

Collectively for instance, we can observe how few structures there are to help us transition to the third act and yet how absolutely necessary it is for society that we do so. This is in sharp contrast to the multitude of structures that accompanied our transition from the first to second act when it seemed like everyone had a stake in our development; our family, peers, society and organisations we worked for. Currently we are left to do this transitionary work alone and without help many people never make the transition.

As part of this seminar, participants can look at what stage they are at in their own transition to the third act.

  • Stage 1 The Wake Up Call – and the realisation that something has changed or is about to change in my life.
  • Stage 2 The Search – to find some new meaning or purpose to this next stage of my life.
  • Stage 3 The Struggle – to let go of my old identity and that which defined me in the second act.
  • Stage 4 The Breakthrough – and the humble emergence of a new self, better adapted to my changed circumstances.
  • Stage 5 The Integration – of the old and new self back into my everyday life and relationships.

The third act is then much more than a new physical stage of life, to be enjoyed by an increasingly large number of people concerned primarily with their own amusement, it is also associated with a psychological stage of development and with becoming a wise and mature adult, capable of addressing the kind interrelated problems facing us all. One might even say we are living longer so that more of this level of consciousness can emerge. Either way transitioning to the third act is both a necessary step in our own personal development as well as a society wide requirement that third actors take up their roles and responsibilities as Elders in society.

Dr. Edward Kelly (56) is an entrepreneur, researcher and facilitator. In the past few years he has led over forty workshops in Intel, Accenture, Google, and others. He is a presenter on the MBA and Innovation programmes at University College Dublin (UCD) and has published articles on adult development in the ILR and JITP. More recently he has facilitated workshops, developed programmes and has run a conference on The Third Act. He is currently writing a book on the archetypal stages and transitions in adult development. Prior to this, he ran a successful telecoms business which he founded in 1995 and before that organized and participated in ‘The Great London to Sydney Taxi Ride’ in 1988, which entered the Guinness Book of Records for the longest most expensive taxi ride in history. He holds an ITC, BA, MBA and PhD.

Deva Premal & Miten, An Evening of Bliss, Mantra and Songs

Having sold out all of their London shows for the past 5 years, we are incredibly excited to announce Deva Premal, Miten and Manose will be coming to Dublin in September 2017.

"Our objective is to be open to the Goddess of music - to be true to ourselves, as musicians, as 'teachers;' as partners, and ultimately, as individuals - fellow travelers. We accomplish this by not 'trying' to accomplish anything. We take very little credit for what is happening around our so-called success (we have sold over a million albums now!) - we see our selves as messengers of a 5,000 year old, our part in the process is simply to show up and chant."

'...pure magic...' Eckhart Tolle

Kim Eng - Presence Through Movement Workshop

Our bodies are more than just a physical form; they can also be a portal into a new way of being in the world. Join Kim Eng, life partner and associate of Eckhart Tolle, to explore this new way of being and learn how to bring inner stillness into your life.

In Presence Through Movement, Kim Eng facilitates an awakening through the body and guides us in a harmonious synthesis of action and stillness. Using the ancient modalities of yin yoga, qigong, and tai chi, Kim weaves these three practices into a presence-infused flow, which helps to restore balance to your physical and energy body. This movement practice gives us an opportunity to observe, inquire, integrate, and release the old emotional wounds that Eckhart calls the "pain body".

Suitable for most ages and physical fitness levels, these movement practices stimulate and activate the body’s energy channels, clear energy blockages (including the pain body), and increase overall well- being and vitality. Through instruction, meditation, and movement, we access and learn to sustain presence in our everyday lives.

Prior experience with yoga, tai chi, or other body-based spiritual practices is helpful, but not required.
Please wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat and cushion.

Angela’s passion for discovering how to attain the “Divine Design” in one’s life has been a driving force for her since childhood. Angela, a Board Certified Naturopath, registered Holistic Health Practitioner and Energy Kinesiologist, has taught and lectured internationally. She developed a program known as Polarity Reflex Analysis and Nutritional Assessment (P.R.A.N.A,) and in 2000 was the guest speaker at the Medical Breast Cancer Conference in Grado, Italy, representing the alternative health care field. As a clinician for over three and a half decades, Angela brings to the teaching and lecture circuit all of the skills that actually work on clients in a clinical setting, as opposed to theoretical solutions that may or may not be effective. Angela counsels her clients that they are already whole, complete and perfect and are designed to be happy, healthy and prosperous.


The Karmic Cleansing System

We have been going about healing ourselves all wrong!  We have been spending our time identifying and attacking the disease, detoxing the disease or changing lifestyles, and we still have the same problems, only more of them.  My patients inspired the Karmic Cleansing System, through the discovery of the belief they were victims to their bodies instead of having dominion over it.  I discovered this belief was not a personal belief, but a collective belief.  This occurred because of imprinted patterned karmic thinking they inherited either through DNA, or past experiences from another time, or from early childhood. They did not choose these beliefs they just had them!

Learn how to identify how Karmic imprinted beliefs affect your health and vitality.  The mind is divided into two: higher mind and lower mind.

               •             Lower-mind frequencies are focused on survival – fear-based                                                 thinking.

               •             Higher-mind frequencies are focused on spirit – love-based thinking.

When you clean and release the lower mind karmic imprint frequencies, the mind becomes free to integrate and align with higher-mind energies so that optimal health is enjoyed at any age.  

Join us for a couple of hours of fun, discovery and enlightenment about how the frequency of the state of your health, is dictated by the frequency that you are vibrating at in your consciousness.  The frequency of your consciousness is dictated by your lower mind or your higher mind.  Enjoy the process of learning about your Real self, your Higher self.

The Third Act Transition Programme


  •  Are you in transition or contemplating a transition?
  • Are you or others in your organisation retiring soon?
  • Have you realised that you are not retiring but are transitioning?  

Following our successful Third Act Transition Programme in 2016, our first 2017 programme starts on Tuesday 7th February.

The Third Act  - The traditional arc of our lives, growing up, adulthood, retirement/old age has been completely altered by human longevity. We are now living 25-30 years longer than our great-grandparents, the equivalent of a whole new Third Act in our lives. If you are 60 years old, you have a 50% chance of living until you are 90. Read more… 

Why A Transition Programme? Because when you come to the end of your second act you are on your own. Society mistakenly assumes you are retiring, checking out, when really you are just transitioning, moving on, to a whole new stage of life that could last 25-30 years.    
An Eight Step Programme - Like signposts on a journey, the eight steps guide your through your transition. This starts with a realisation that The Third Act is real and finishes with an appreciation of what YOUR Third Act is about. In between are the highs and lows, the trials and errors, of any transition. 

Is This For You?  The concept may resonate with you but then another voice says, "I'll look at that later, when I've time". Realising the change has occurred (human longevity), a part of us knows that we need to change as well. Another part, often the more dominant part, wants to stay the same. The attached questionnaire may help you to decide if this programme is for you. Read here...

FacilitatorThis programme is facilitated by Dr. Edward Kelly, founder of The Third Act organisation. Other Third Act Transition Programme facilitators are also available.  Read more ....

The New Consciousness Children

Children seem to be coming into this world in a more evolved and heightened state of awareness.. Before they have been exposed to all of our incongruities and limitations, they are a immense source of wisdom and inspiration.

A mum told me of her little boy who looked at his new born sister and said “quick, tell me before you forget”.

These children are connected, congruent, coherent , present and authentic .They state precisely what they know to be true for them. They speak from a place of certainty and authenticity about something that they genuinely feel, and then, most frequently, simply are present. Love, light, and compassion are the dominant themes of their inner remembering. They need to feels safe and nurtured so they can to speak of their own unique inner knowing about the world beyond this physical domain. In order to do so they need to feel safe and in control of their bodies via being Physically Literate.

 Yet these children seem to be misunderstood, constantly labelled, struggling in the education system and emotionally.

This seminar is about the following:

  • What are they like ?
  • What is the role of these children?
  • How do we best support and nurture them ?
  • Why Physical Literacy is important?
  • How is Physical Literacy hindered?
  • What kind of education do they need?
  • and the way forward!

This information will be of value to teachers, educators, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and anyone linked children.

Dr Alweena Awan received her Doctorate in “Raising Children's Learning and Performance in Schools”, in 2008. She is the Founder of The Child Centre Method - Learning and Behaviour Program®. She is also the originator of CHILD, which is the Centre for Holistic Improvement in Learning and Development, which she created in 2004.
Her knowledge and application of learning and behavioural improvement methodologies for children is unique. She is a published author on the subject of using holistic methods to help children learn . Specifically, she holds the greatest expertise in the identification and rehabilitation of retained reflexes and Physical Literacy. 

Dr Awan has  trained teachers, chiropractors, health care professionals, therapists and parents in her methods, and in the process has helped children to overcome a variety of challenges and to live more fulfilling lives. The Child Centre Method has been used in schools in the UK , Ireland, Brazil and Malaysia.

Film Screening of Awake, The Life of Yogananda

€10.00 pay on door

AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. (Apparently, it was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad.) By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and inspiring the millions who practice yoga today.

Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, the documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, east and west and explores why millions today have turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization.

Archival material from the life of Yogananda (who died in 1952) creates a spine for the narrative, but the film stretches the dimensions of a standard biography. The footage includes stylized interviews, metaphoric imagery and recreations, taking us from holy pilgrimages in India to Harvard’s Divinity School and its cutting-edge physics labs, from the Center for Science and Spirituality at the University of Pennsylvania to the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. By evoking the journey of the soul as it pushes its way through the oppression of the human ego and delusion of the material world, the film creates an experiential immersion into the unseen realms. AWAKE is ultimately the story of humanity itself: the universal struggle of all beings to free themselves from suffering and to seek lasting happiness.

Burgundy vs Bordeaux Debate


Among wine lovers, there is no greater divide than that between Burgundy and Bordeaux. These are the world’s most celebrated wine regions, different places producing different styles of wine. What separates them and why the great rivalry?

Jancis Robinson MW - Making the Case for Burgundy

Award-winning wine critic whose books Vines, Grapes and Wine (1986), the hugely successful Oxford Companion to Wine (1994, 1999, 2006) and Wine Grapes (2012) are landmarks in wine literature. She and Hugh Johnson co-author The World Atlas of Wine which is now in its seventh edition. Jancis is the Financial Times wine correspondent and her award-winning website has subscribers in more than 150 countries.

Dr Alweena Awan: Primitive Reflexes - Module 1 Day 2



Primitive Reflexes - How They Effect Children's Learning - Module 1  Day 2

 This is the second day of the Introduction to Primitive Reflexes workshop. The information will be of value to teachers, educators, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and anyone linked children.

Primitive and Postural Reflexes are a cluster of programmed automatic movements which develop for our survival. An example is the Moro reflex, which allows a new born to take its first breath. Problems arise if the Moro reflex is retained, as the body is held in “fight / flight” mode. When the process of integration is not complete, the reflex will have an adverse effect on a child’s emotional well-being as well as how the child learns and behaves

ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, difficulty with reading and writing, concentration, focus and emotional problems, behavioural problem are examples of issues related to retained primitive reflexes. 

  • Learn more about the reflexes , in particular how they integrate to Postural Reflexes.
  • Complete the Child Centre Assessment training .
  • Practice testing for the reflexes and completing the assessment.
  • Learn how to use the Home SIMPLE programme with individual and groups of children.
  • Learn how to completed the Bilateral Integration sequencing exercises.

Pre-requisite - Module 1 Day 1 workshop

Dr Alweena Awan received her Doctorate in “Raising Children's Learning and Performance in Schools”, in 2008. She lectures part-time at Leeds Beckett University and works as an Educational therapist and Kinesiologist. She is the Founder and International Director of The Child Centre Method - Learning and Behaviour Program®. She is also the originator of CHILD, which is the Centre for Holistic Improvement in Learning and Development, which she created in 2004.

Her knowledge and application of learning and behavioural improvement methodologies for children is unique. She is a published author on the subject of using holistic methods to help children learn . Specifically, she holds the greatest expertise in the identification and rehabilitation of retained reflexes. Retained reflexes create neuro-developmental issues and can be identified by careful examinations of physical, emotional, mental, and social behaviours. Retained reflexes create great challenges to students at any age and can upset natural abilities in reading, writing, speech and language, behaviour and emotions.


 Dr Awan has run her own private practice of over 10 years. She has also trained teachers, chiropractors, health care professionals, therapists and parents in her methods, and in the process has helped children to overcome a variety of challenges and to live more fulfilling lives. The Child Centre Method has been used in schools in the UK , Ireland, Brazil and Malaysia.
