Shekina Sculpture Garden

‘Catherine turned a visit into a little therapy session on the senses:  being told to take time to be on your own, go barefoot to feel the grass, sense the air, hear the birds and listen to your senses.  Tune in; turn on; drop out – without the drugs or the mess’
Rose Martin – Irish Examiner
