The Spiritual Care Centre

The Spiritual Care Centre at Dzogchen Beara provides a safe and supportive environment for guests living with life-limiting illness, recovering from treatment or experiencing bereavement, and for those who care for them. The team also welcomes professional care-givers seeking rest and renewal or who wish to deepen their knowledge and enhance their skills through our training programmes.

Spiritual Care
We use the word ‘spiritual’ to describe the needs which we all share, whatever our beliefs. The need to:

  • understand and transform suffering
  • find a source of comfort, peace or refuge
  • experience a genuine connection with others
  • find meaning in life, and illness and dying

Supported Breaks
It can be hard to know where to turn when we’re faced with the reality of death. Through Supported Breaks, the Spiritual Care team offers help by one-to-one listening and guidance in meditation and contemplations which come from the Buddhist tradition but which are universally meaningful. Before your Supported Break you are invited to speak with one of the team, to discuss what you would like during your stay.

We have seven en suite rooms, four of which are fully wheelchair accessible with conservatories offering spectacular ocean views. There is a beautiful meditation room with large windows, and comfortable common areas. Guests are invited to enjoy their meals together in the fully equipped kitchen area.

You can also avail of gentle one-to-one yoga sessions and reflexology, which you would need to prebook.

For more information or to express your interest in a Supported Break at the Spiritual Care Centre please email Andrea.

Venue Hire
The Spiritual Care Centre is available for hire by organisations that provide supports and services to people living with illness and those who care for them, and the bereaved. Your group can come and use the building for your own programme or talk to the Spiritual Care Team who will create a bespoke programme that meets your interest and requirements.
