About the event

Introductory Céile Dé Retreat

Spend a full day on the shore of Lake Erie experiencing some of the teachings and practices of the Céile Dé tradition, which has been held quietly and steadily for many centuries, first in monastic settings and now in a form viable for anyone who is ready, willing, and able to be part of a community dedicated to inner transformation. Our community traces its roots to the earliest sharing of Christian teachings in the Celtic lands -- and beyond, back to where history shades into myth. Our gathering will include sacred Gaelic chants, time in nature, shared silence, and teachings to support one's growth as a true Human Being, in relationship with the divine Source, seeking to bring about Heaven on Earth.

This one-day, non-residential retreat for newcomers will begin with coffee and tea for early arrivals and end with a meditation session. The cost is $45 per person and includes lunch.

Opportunities to go deeper into the Céile Dé tradition will be available for those who want to embark on a path of spiritual transformation within a well-supported container.
