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. In 2019, the annual Ohio retreat takes place over our Easter Triduum weekend and will include more reflection time and fewer teachings, practices to mark the progression of the Triduum, and times for sharing our experiences of being in this sacred story. Because of the special nature of this retreat, it is open only to Caim members. Please email the address below if you wish to be placed on the waiting list.
The Practical Bits
Exact times will be shared with attendees closer to the date, but plan to arrive no later than 4 pm on Wednesday, April 24, in order to settle into your room and be ready for the opening session at approximately 5 pm. The retreat will conclude at midday on Sunday, April 28. 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.
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.
