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 often with more time available to spend in quite 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.

St. Francis Springs Prayer Center
Our 2020 gathering will be housed at this modern retreat center on 140 wooded acres, about 30 miles north of Greensboro, North Carolina. All rooms have private baths; we will take our meals in the main dining hall. For more information about St. Francis Springs, including driving directions, you can visit

Ongoing Community 
Newcomers will have the opportunity for ongoing study and spiritual practice within existing Céile Dé groups that offer a powerful container for those who seek a path that invites commitment and openness to real inner change.
