Celtic Spirituality: Ancient Wisdom for Today’s World

Dr. Hilary Oxford Smith and Celtic harpist, Julie Saraswati

9 March 2019

The ancient Celtic Christian spiritual tradition is deeply significant for our times, offering insights and spiritual practices that remind us of the unity of our origins, nourish our deepest longings for serenity, peace and oneness and nurture our respect and care for the whole of creation.

We are glimpsing the imaginative stirrings of a Celtic soul, a Celtic consciousness - organic, grassroots and countercultural - a contemporary spirituality that more and more seeks to free itself from some of the shackles of organized religion. There is a yearning for new ways to belong and live in the world, to discover wisdom, beauty and love, and a sense of the sacred and of thankfulness restored.

On this retreat…

Be companioned by some of the greatest Celtic mystics, visionaries and saints;
Hear the music and songs, poetry, stories, wisdom and blessings that moved them to dream and write, travel and share prayer, pilgrimage and hospitality;

Discover the places where they found meaning, comfort and peace;
Warm your spirit, feed your soul, deepen your insight. Be gifted with peace, beauty and love to mind your life.
