Lunchtime Inspirations with Patrick Regan OBE

PREVIOUS EVENT On Friday 16th April 2021 12.30pm – 1.30pm approx

Kintsugi Hope was founded by Diane and Patrick Regan OBE after a series of events that took them to the brink; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. They faced illness and loss in their family and community. They are committed to working and supporting people whose mental and emotional health have been affected.

Patrick will speak about resilience. “Resilience can often be thought of bouncing back, but I am not sure I want to bounce back, we have all been changed, moved and challenged by living through a pandemic, how can we bounce forwards? Resilience is thriving in the midst of adversity, how can we practice and develop resilience? I learnt that being honest about my struggles not only helped me, but also helped open the door for many others to be honest too. It is so much easier facing difficult situations with others than on our own".
