On the Celtic Way – Weekend Retreat

Friday, 12 April @ 4:00 pm - Sunday, 14 April @ 2:00 pm

Everything is essentially an utterance of the divine, a sacred sounding, each creature and life form a unique and unrepeatable expression of the One.  From “Sacred Earth Sacred Soul” by John Philip Newell


Celtic Spirituality invites an awareness to a unique belonging with one’s soul and with the soul of all of creation. This retreat will explore several of the main themes which can be found in the essence of Christian Celtic Spirituality, offering an ancient way to navigate life today. These include Blessing, Soul friendship, Thresholds, Dreaming and Life as Pilgrimage. 

Using imagery, music, story and creative expression, participants will be given time to reflect and consider these themes. Woven into the weekend will be Celtic music, song, and poetry.

 On the Celtic Way will offer you time to walk, relax, sit quietly, listen, and reflect on your journey with God and share with others.

Take some time with your own inner landscape to be enlivened by the beauty of creation through the Celtic Way with others!
