Garter Lane

Ryuichi Sakamoto: Opus 12th of April

In March 2023 the legendary composer Ryuichi Sakamoto lost his battle with cancer. During his last few years, he was unable to perform live concerts, and so he allowed his son, Neo Sora, to film one final performance. Recorded over a week in late 2022 at NHK Studio in Tokyo, this breathtaking concert features only Sakamoto and his beloved piano. Sakamoto himself chose the twenty pieces he performs and also the order in which we hear them—he guides us on a memorable journey of his musical career, whilst also revealing his own emotions as he plays.

Glenshelane Wood Wellness Walk Saturday 13th April 10am

🍃Join Pure by Paula for a Wellness Walk on Saturday 13th April at 10am in Glenshelane Wood, Co Waterford.

✨I’m a Holistic Therapist and Lowland Leader with qualifications in Reiki, Meditation, and Forest Bathing, as well as many more qualifications.

I provide Wellness Walks with a holistic twist, in various locations around the country.

Step away from the chaos of daily life and discover the harmony within, as you connect with nature on a profound level.

Delve into mindfulness practices that extend beyond the walk, leaving you with enduring mental clarity and resilience.

This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in nature with Forest Bathing (no swimwear needed and no clothing removed !!!…we are simply immersing ourselves in the atmosphere of the forest ), a Guided Meditation, Reiki Healing, Card Pulling, and heart opening Cacao. Let’s create positive vibes together! 🌿✨

Please note – my Wellness Walks are deliberately set at a slow easy relaxed pace. They are mindful walks in nature so if you’re looking for a workout or to reach ‘X amount of steps’, my Wellness walks are not for you!

🌿 This is not just a walk; it’s a journey to rejuvenate mind, body, and soul🌟
