Human Relationships And Marriage

When I first heard Jack Dominian speak, I was both fascinated and mesmerised by his voice.  He had a unique quality and a commanding tempo that made his listeners sit up and take notice.   He spoke with authority.    When I attended his talk in Cluain Mhuire some years ago, I sensed we were in for a special treat and it was truly a night to remember.   As he confidently delivered his talk, the silence that fell on the room seemed to trip those lights in the mind that urges us to seek what is good, one, true and real and for many, this is what shows us the face of God.

Jack Dominian, my hero, had huge credentials after his name.  He was the former senior consultant psychiatrist in The Central Middlesex Hospital  in London and he was also a lay theologian and author of 32 books.

In the latter weeks, I knew this same lecture was recorded in Cluain Mhuire many years ago and I quietly wondered if these same cassettes had survived the ravages of time.  Maybe this recording would forever remain shrouded in mystery, a lost treasure, undiscovered.   One day I decided to call in to The Galway Diocesan Pastoral Centre in Newtownsmith and I was allowed permission to conduct a search.  I knew exactly what I was looking for and through the grace of God I located this same recording in less than five minutes.  I was both surprised and exhilarated and knew in an instant that I had discovered spiritual gold. 
Thankfully, I was able to get these old cassettes transferred on to CD's for future editing purposes.  My immediate thinking shifted to who might benefit from this magical find.  I thought about young people, those preparing for marriage, married people and anyone with an open mind who might value the brilliant insights from this man.

Finally, in this fundraising venture, I would like to appeal to all people reading this story to make a donation.  All donated funds will go towards the following:  CD storage,  advertising, the cost of stationery, stamps, and primarily the cost of CD duplication.  I will be dedicating all my available time free of charge towards making this project a success.   I am working towards achieving my fundraising goal of € 5000 before March 2021.  Your support would mean a great deal to me and will ensure that the teaching and insights of Dr Jack Dominian, coupled with his marvellous sense of humour, will touch many lives.  Anyone donating €10 or more will receive a free, complimentary Double CD provided they e mail me personally with their full printed address accompanied with their Eircode.

Lastly, many years ago on the east side of Galway city a lady paid me a great compliment:  She said: "Everything he touches turns to gold"  Let's rise to the challenge and prove her right in this instance.  In the latter years I have discovered that I get my greatest fulfillment in life  through inspiring, supporting and helping others.  Jack Dominian,  in his simple speaking style, has helped me navigate the various stages of my own life.  Through your help he can touch many more lives.  Help me achieve my dream by supporting this venture.
