What We Do
Come Ye And Rest Awhile
CYARA is a non profit association founded in 2015
Based on christian values,
its core activity is pastoral care in its many forms.
CYARA is about people restoration, building connection and community.
The ultimate vision for CYARA is to have - or have the use of -
a centre, a haven of peace, where people can stay
during their restoration process, before returning home.
The prayer of St Francis beautifully describes what lies at the heart of CYARA

What We Do
The founders, Paul and Muriel Geraghty, both bilingual French-English, currently live on the Côte d'Azur
where they are actively involved in the community
Paul has successfully worked as a designer and project manager in the field of construction for 35 years.
For many years, his passion has been to see
people's lives reconstructed.
Paul is a qualified mentor, he guides individuals and small groups through tailor-made recovery plans using full immersion, good humour and compassion.
Muriel has run a successful medical practice as an Endocrinologist for 10 years in Beausoleil.
In 2009, Muriel gave up her medical practice for health reasons.
Moved by the desire to provide compassionate support to those suffering, Muriel qualified in both clinical and pastoral counselling.
People often feel powerless when they see or know of someone struggling.
Together we can offer hope, healing and lasting solutions to those in need.
