Emerging from the Celtic lands, the ancient Céile Dé tradition leads us through the gap between our highest aspiration and our everyday reality. Even as we seek that which lies Beyond, we remain grounded in reverence for the Earth that gives us life and ever-births the Incarnation in our surrendered hearts. Suspended between Heaven and Earth, we follow our deep desire to unite the two in Christ and experience the transformative power of Love.
Sue Mosher, an ordained Céile Dé teacher, will offer an experiential introduction to the tradition's philosophy and time-tested practices for spiritual growth, including:
- Practicing rùn, the main Céile Dé contemplative method
- Using the ancient and powerful Gaelic sacred chants
- Observing the ancient holy days and seasons of the Gael
- Exploring the role of silence in spiritual growth
- Learning about a way of life that supports real transformation through meditation, devotion, inner witnessing, and development of the imaginal senses, the language of Anam or Soul
The retreat begins with dinner on Friday evening and concludes with an after-lunch session on Sunday. Our time together will include a traditional ceremony to mark the Spring Equinox.
Newcomers will have the opportunity to form a local group for ongoing practice, within a powerful container supporting those who seek a path of commitment and openness to real inner change.
The retreat will take place at the Our Lady of the Pines Retreat Center in Fremont, Ohio, on 63 wooded acres. Both commuter and residential options are available. Rooms are singles with shared bath.
