Hour of Calm


Hour of Calm

A cancer diagnosis can bring stress and noise into your life. You may find it difficult to find the time or space to sit in quiet with your own thoughts and feelings. 

At Cork ARC Cancer Support House, we offer an hour of calm to allow you this time to process and reset. This hour offers a quiet space led by an experienced meditation teacher, offering techniques of progressive relaxation, breathwork, meditation, visualisation and compassionate kindness. 

Our Hour of Calm is a drop-in group, and all those affected by cancer are welcome to join. No appointment is necessary.

If you would like to find out more about our hour of calm, visit our events calendar to find out details of upcoming sessions.


We welcome you to our weekly guided practices which are being held online every Monday evening at 9.30pm and Wednesday morning at 11.30am during our Covid-19 restrictions. 

Our Monday evening live guided practice will be led by Marie O’Mahony who has been volunteering with Cork ARC as a Counsellor since 2014.   Marie is a trained teacher of Mindfulness Based Interventions and has been leading the Hour of Calm in Cork recently.

Our Wednesday morning live guided practices will be led by John Douglas who has been volunteering with Cork ARC as a Counsellor since 2015. John regularly leads meditation weekends at Dzogchen Beara Buddhist Centre near Allihies and has led the Hour of Calm in Bantry and in Cork many times.
