With practices of devotion and dissolving, this ancient, Celtic, esoteric Christian path invites us to shift our awareness from the mind to the heart. The physical world becomes both our vessel and our companion on a sacred journey that can take us beyond the senses toward a transformed life of greater awareness and balance, warmed by Love.
Our time together will include:
~ Regular prayer times/meditation practices every day
~ Learning ancient Gaelic sacred chants
~ Spiritual practices that engage the body in transformation
~ Finding inspiration and teachings in Celtic legend
~ Working with energy centers that connect body and soul
~ Sacred work with Nature, the Face of God
Although this event is intended as a follow-up to previous teachings, there will be frequent reference to what has been taught before, so newcomers are welcome and will find there is plenty of opportunity to catch up.
Hallowood Retreat & Conference Center
We are returning to Hallowood Retreat & Conference Center, in a wooded setting about one hour north of Washington, DC, but only 15 minutes from I-270. Click here for more information about Hallowood, including transportation and accommodations.
We are expecting to fill all of Hallowood's rooms, and some attendees will need to find their own lodging. For commuters only, your $100 deposit will be fully refundable if you cannot find reasonable accommodations nearby and cancel by September 21. Here is a map of nearby B&B locations managed on the AirBnB web site. Most are 15 minutes from Hallowood, in Boyds and Clarksburg, MD. Conventional motel rooms also are available along I-270 in Germantown and Frederick, about 25 minutes from Hallowood.
Some B&Bs may offer a discount to attendees of this retreat. Please contact us (address below under "More Information") for discount details or if you'd like help in finding a roommate for off-site accommodations.
Newcomers will have the opportunity to consider becoming a part of a Céile Dé group in various locations on the East Coast. Ongoing practice within our Céile Dé community offers a powerful container for those who seek a path that invites commitment and openness to real inner change.
