An ICU nurse turned wellness educator who uses natural solutions to help people support their everyday lives is planning a health event this weekend.

Wendy Condon, who runs 'Wendy's Health Essentials - A Nurse's Guide', will host an wellness event in the Killarney Plaza Hotel and Spa this Sunday from 11am to 4.30pm.

Wendy was an ICU nurse for over 15 years but switched to a more natural method for treating health issues over five years ago as her children had different health challenges which resulted in them taking long-term medication which she found wasn't very helpful.

"I began using natural solutions and essential oils from doTERRA and I got amazing and life-changing results in many health areas including sleep, anxiety behaviour for my autistic daughter and our other girl had severe eczema, allergies poor immune system, and I wanted to share these and so many more with other families like ours," Wendy told the Killarney Advertiser.

"I am now a wellness educator for doTERRA Natural Solutions and help people to learn how to support their everyday and long-term health both physically and emotionally."

She explained that she was asked by her many customers to come down south many times to provide an information and training day to help educate on various topics, but lockdown prevented it from going ahead.

However, with restrictions now very much eased she is planning a day at the Plaza Hotel where she'll have a variety of speakers available to offer advice.

"I have many other leading and experienced wellness advocates joining us on the day to deliver presentations, demonstrations and advice covering all areas from women's health, hormones, children's health, sports fitness and injuries, mental health, sleep, emotions/trauma, digestive health, reducing toxic/chemicals in the home, skincare etc.

"We are really excited and looking forward to our first event in over two years. Many have had time to reconnect with themselves, with nature and important things during lockdown and I really feel people need and are looking for solutions for their health in so many areas that our healthcare system is overburdened right now more than ever," she said.

"Mothers can be empowered and have natural solutions that work in their own homes, we want to help with that and show them how easy it can be. I think there's a space for natural solutions alongside modern medicine and can work well together to get people the best results for their health."

Tickets are €20 and can be purchased on www.eventbrite.ie/e/259060947267 or contact Wendy for more information on 086 0674154.

There’s no language barrier when it comes to dancing – which is why one local group is organising classes to unite communities.

KASI, the Killarney Immigrant Support Centre, has teamed up with dance instructor John Moriarty to teach both Ukrainians and multiple cultures living in Kerry Irish set dancing steps from next week.

The first class will take place on Tuesday evenings, starting next week (September 27) at St Mary’s Parish Hall at 6.30pm and all are welcome to join.

The idea is to help Ukrainians living in Killarney and Kerry to come and have fun and get to know locals better, KASI coordinator, Marilyn Catapat-Counihan, explained to the Killarney Advertiser.

“We have a women’s group for all ages where we do crochet, sewing and art and crafts, where they can talk which is good. I had the music on and they were dancing. I asked if they would like to do dancing classes so I organised it with John Moriarty who is well known in Killarney.”

She added that the women are very excited to learn set dancing and get to know other people from the area.

“Sometimes when you meet new people the language can be a barrier and when you’re dancing everybody is moving. He will open it to everyone so there’ll be integration, it’s fun as well. They are all very excited.”

To find out more contact John on 086 1579381.
