About the event
Northwest Céile Dé Teaching Retreat
Oíde Sue Mosher will be joining us again at St Andrews bringing material that she and Sr. Fionn have selected for us.
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 there is more time available to spend in quiet 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 because 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.
We will continue to follow COVID-19 safety protocols as required, with possible enhancements to mitigate whatever changing risk landscape may emerge nearer the time of the retreat. All attendees must take a rapid-antigen test within 24-hours of arrival at St. Andrews. Masks will be required during indoor singing/changing sessions. We will have extra masks on hand, as well as rapid-tests in case anyone starts to feel unwell. If someone should have a positive test during the retreat, they would of course be expected to return home for everyone’s safety – taking our love and good wishes with them. We will review additional guidelines on the first day of the retreat and will reach out in advance if we learn of any changing conditions or requirements.
