'Deerc' - The Love of God
It is said that a Céile Dé has two pillars that support him on his journey: The Pillar of Knowledge and The Pillar of The Love of God. It is also said that we can only truly know anything of spiritual importance according to the degree of our love of God.
In this gathering we will explore both pillars and their interrelationship… but, as we move deeper into our time together, the main focus will become the Pillar of Love of God – called Deercc in Old Irish.
From out of the ancient hearts of our tradition, that were filled with Deercc, many teachings and practices have poured. They can open our hearts too, if we allow, to the reality of the presence of the Divine, both within us and around us.
Be prepared to leave your mask at the door. Be prepared to surrender. Be prepared to dissolve…
St Andrew's House Retreat Center
Newcomers will have the opportunity to consider further, ongoing teachings and practices within groups in both WA and OR, that will offer a powerful container for those who seek a path that invites commitment and openness to real inner change.
