RETREATS IN IRELAND
AS A JOURNEY TO THE INNER SELF
Fáilte – Welcome to Celtic Journeys. Hello and a warm Fáilte or Irish welcome to you as you visit our website here at Celtic Journeys in the heart of Ireland.
What is a Celtic Journey?
What is a Celtic Journey? A Celtic Journey is a personal peregrination – both an inner and an outer voyage which is woven into a Celtic tapestry of heart and soul. It is a call to reflection within the support, nourishment and inspiration of our Celtic Spiritual Tradition here in Ireland. It is an inner journey to one’s spirit through rich Celtic Gatherings which offer an introduction to Celtic Spirituality and an understanding of its Wisdom Tradition and Practices. This is a soulful way to be introduced to the Spirituality of Ireland and a gateway to the mystical……..
On a Celtic Journey you are invited to participate in Celtic Rituals to renew and refresh your Spirit and Celtic Practices that can become part of your daily life. In a deep, rich and authentic way it is a lived experience of Celtic Spirituality touching into the mystical, shining a gentle and kindly light on your spirit. Enjoy discovering the many facets of the Celtic Wisdom Tradition and its rich offerings for the human spirit. Hearing the music, poetry, blessings and stories express the openness and wonder of the Celtic imagination kindles your own inner fire. The Divine Feminine holds a fulsome place within the Celtic World in Ireland and I offer ways of honouring and being in harmony with the essence of this wise and powerful presence.
A Celtic Journey typically involves a Celtic Gathering in the morning which contextualises Celtic Spirituality and the Sacred Site to be visited in the afternoon. The number of Celtic Gatherings and the variety of Sacred Sites visited depend on the type and length of the Celtic Retreat. During all Celtic Retreats there is time for reflection and deepening of your personal experience.
Celtic Journeys embraces three interwoven parts – Retreat, Ritual and Pilgrimage.
“I highly recommend Mary’s pilgrimages, her sacred travel and her guided retreats…
may all visitors to ireland re-joyce in the revival in the poetic pilgrimages that Mary specialises in…”
— Phil Cousineau, author of “The Art of Pilgrimage” and “The Book of Roads”
