The Shape of a Céile Dé Teaching Retreat
Céile Dé annual residential teaching retreats are intensive, deliberately so, in order to create conditions that people are generally unable to manifest by themselves at home and in their everyday lives. This also gives people who are following the tradition an opportunity to receive sufficient material to work with until their next annual teaching retreat...

  • Days begin with meditation before breakfast.
  • Generally there are two sessions of around one hour's duration every morning, with a break between for silent reflection. 
  • In the afternoons, we take more time for quiet reflection, either in Nature or indoors, as you wish, and a third teaching session.
  • Before dinner, we return to the circle for meditation and sacred conversation.
  • There is usually some free time after dinner, but optional events are available, giving retreatants the choice to rest a little - or stay intense!
  • Every day ends with a meditation around 9 pm, after which we go straight to bed and hope for rich dreams after a day filled with soul nourishment. 
We aim to hold silence at all times outside of sessions. 
Our annual gathering is a ‘Teaching Retreat’, because it is residential, the teaching sessions are supported by frequent contemplative practices, and because a peaceful silence is held at all times between teaching sessions in order to aid absorption of the powerful energies transmitted during teachings and practices. You can read more about the culture of silence at our teaching retreats HERE.
