The space and silence make Lough Derg a truly extraordinary place.
It is an oasis of calm and safety we arrive at before we cross back to the hurly burly of everyday life. Come out of everyday life gives us the distance to establish perspective and focus on what really matters. The Living with Suicide Day Retreat invites those who have been affected by suicide, either through personal loss, those who minister to the suicide bereaved or work in support services the opportunity to unburden ourselves from the expectations of others and the expectations we burden ourselves with. Being in this place apart we allow our spirits to have some breathing space.
