Soul Space – More than just an event

Soul Space is an inspiring new event happening on 22 September in Claregalway, Galway. I’ve written about it a little bit already here on Happy Magazine, and today I have all the details for you. I hope I might inspire you to attend for yourself. I bought my ticket a few months ago and am really looking forward to the day.

What is it?

Soul Space is a one day experience that will deliver a synergy of workshops to bring you on a journey of the body, mind and soul.

On the day you can expect to:

  • Learn to heal and refocus the mind to unlock your true potential
  • Understand, adapt and stand up to anxiety and stress
  • Awaken your best self through practicing guided yoga, meditation and mindfulness
  • Learn to nourish the mind and body and explore your relationship with food
  • Discover, explore and enhance the relationships you have with yourself and with others
  • Have powerful conversations with leading minds in the fields of health, wellness, sport and performance and meet other like-minded people

“The insightful topics at Soul Space will be a source of human openness, light and genuine support. I promise we will deliver something very special that speaks to the hearts of individuals and communities.” Gerry Hussey, Co-Founder of Soul Space

Why is it?

In our fast-paced modern world of noise and distraction, our health is being challenged like never before. We tend to give priority to looking after others and often end up neglecting ourselves.

We need a space. A space to breathe, to nourish, to reawaken. Soul Space is that space.

The aim of Soul Space is to help individuals discover the skillset to create an energised body, an awakened mind and an inspired spirit and to help remove the misunderstandings and stigmas surrounding stress, anxiety and mental health.

A place where people can explore, grieve, let go, smile and be empowered. • Soul Space is their vision brought to life.

Soul Space is founded by husband and wife duo, Gerry Hussey (performance psychologist) and Miriam Kerins Hussey (Pharmacist, Health coach, and integrative health specialist), both of whom are experts in performance and health sciences and have been at the forefront of human health and performance for over 20 years.

You all know I am a huge fan of Gerry and Miriam. They have both contributed articles to and so generously give of their time and expertise freely to help others. They are two truly authentic people with a real passion for what they do.

Soul Space will bring to life Gerry and Miriam’s vibrant, passionate and innovative approach to human health in a truly bespoke and personal manner. Co-hosts on the day are some of the biggest and best known names in the fields of medicine, psychology, wellbeing, professional sport and high-level business. They include, Brent Pope, Sile Seoige, Kathryn Thomas, Jessie Barr, Alison Canavan, Brendan Maher, Tony Og Regan, Dr. Clare Kambamettu and Dr. Mark Rowe. The day will also be opened by the sensational O’Neill sisters who will take to the stage for the opening ceremony.

Together, these powerful and inspirational minds will aim to engage hearts and minds, ignite inner potential and uncover and unlock the very best of your true self through a mix of insightful conversations, psychology, mindfulness, meditation and nutritional wellbeing.

There is no doubt in my mind that the day really will have the potential to change people’s lives if they’re open to it.

One speaker I’m really looking forward to hearing is the very lovely Sile Seoige. I had the great pleasure of meeting her a few weeks ago (when I made a total embarrassment of myself by telling her all about Happy Magazine 🙈) but she’s such a lady that she took it all in her stride.

All the way back in February I started following Sile on Instagram. She put up one of her regular daily posts one day and mentioned she was going in for hospital scans. She was so confident and strong in the way that she spoke about them – how she knew she was doing fine – and wasn’t worried about the scans. She had such a positive approach to them and it gave me such a boost at the time. That one single post really inspired me to be a strong woman, to embrace my life and my circumstances and be as positive as possible. Even thinking back now, it still inspires me.

Back to the event. It looks like it’s going to be a truly great day. The complete line-up of speakers is incredible for a single event – there is so much inspiration to be had.

From a ‘health and wellness after cancer’ point of view, the speakers I am most interested in hearing on the day (in addition to Gerry and Miriam) are:

Sile will speak at Soul Space about this journey, and how she overcame adversity and used meditation, Yoga and lifestyle to help her on her healing journey. Through her practice, she has become more aware of her body on all levels; physically, emotionally and mentally and has learnt to deal with the challenges she has been faced with, listen to her body and to appreciate the gift of living an authentic life.
