The Tapestry of Life General location of project

"The Tapestry of Life is a book that takes you by surprise. It’s a deceptively simple story, about the lives of ordinary people. But through her characters Celine O’Donovan gives a sharp, and insightful commentary about modern society; our treatment of mental illness, our disregard for older people, and the safety net of community. It’s a book about bravery, discovery, and most importantly, friendship. Roll on the sequel."
Sarah McInerney, RTE broadcaster and journalist

The Tapestry of Life is available to purchase in Dubrays and Charlie Byrne's Bookshop in Galway or online at Tribes Press or Amazon (paperback and kindle edition) or click on the button below.

SPEAKER

With over 15 years’ experience as a public speaker, my focus now is on using my life experiences to help anyone who is struggling or looking for a different approach to life. Dark times can be the catalyst to grow and create a better life. It took time but that has been the case for me. There are no limits, only the limits we impose upon ourselves.

HOLISTIC COACH

I know that it is possible to overcome great challenge and create a meaningful life. When we connect with our inner wisdom, we rediscover the life we always intended to live and we know the steps to take to make it a reality. This is my experience and this is what coaching is about for me. I call it Insideout Coaching.

I salute you General location of post

I wrote I salute you a couple of years ago as a way to honour and thank all the amazing women I met while going through breast cancer. I share it now to honour all women and to mark the rise of the divine feminine on the planet.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month reminds me of how far I have come General location of post

It is hard to believe that it is more than four years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now every year as October approaches, I am reminded of how lucky I am to be healthy and well. I am also reminded of how shell-shocked I was when the consultant first broke the news.

Back to nature General location of post

I owe much to nature. It has been a great teacher to me, particularly during the quiet days of lockdown. As I took time to stop and look around on my daily walk, my body relaxed as it sensed the stillness that is at the heart of everything.

Taking centre stage in your life General location of post

Have you ever felt that the best version of you is just waiting in the wings for their cue to come on stage? For many years I did. I held a very limited view of what was possible for my life, dismissing many long-held dreams that called from deep within.

The power of community General location of post

I'd never really thought about community or its importance in my life until I got sick. I moved through life unconscious of the environments I was in, the company I kept and the impact it had on me. Now more than ever I value being around like-minded people who lift me up.

Discovering the value of having a daily practice General location of post

I wrote this post just before Covid-19 reached our shores but it is now more relevant than ever. In a time when our world has been turned upside down, having a daily practice can help us get centred and give us some semblance of normality. It has made all the difference to me.
