The Commitment of Membership

Membership in your Térmonn chapter is a commitment to give back to the Céile Dé tradition in return for the wealth received for your personal soul-growth.  Traditionally, it was customary to offer a pledge to symbolize one’s deep and growing heart-commitment to the Tradition.  In ancient times, the surrounding communities practiced this heart-commitment by giving back gifts from the land to the monastery.  Today, this energy exchange is made with our annual membership fee to our Chapter of $20, and a regular financial pledge and/or service to the tradition through their Termonn Chapter.
