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. Afternoons are a similar shape, but there is more time available to spend in quiet reflection, either in Nature or indoors, as you wish.
  • There is another meditation, or some other spiritual practice, before dinner.
  • 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 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.

The Practical Bits

Exact times will be shared with attendees closer to the date, but plan to arrive no later than 4 pm on Thursday, March 22, in order to settle into your room and be ready for the opening session at approximately 5 pm. The retreat will conclude about 2 pm on Sunday, March 26. Once you have booked your place, you will receive occasional emails with further information, both practical and otherwise, to help you prepare for this gathering.

Our Venue
We will be meeting in a 200-year-old house overlooking Lake Erie in the lakeside community of Mitiwanga, west of Cleveland. Places are very limited. All rooms are shared. Breakfasts are self-serve; lunches and dinners are catered. We will share preparation and cleanup tasks. Please note dietary needs on your registration form; we will do our best to accommodate them and also allow room in the refrigerator if you need to bring special food. 

Ongoing CommunityNewcomers will have the opportunity to consider further, ongoing teachings and practices within established Céile Dé groups that offer a powerful container for those who seek a path that invites commitment and openness to real inner change.
