7 Day Celtic Retreat at Samhain - The Celtic New Year

Our Retreat is at Anam Cara Retreat Centre,
Beara Peninsula, County Cork.
Saturday 27 October through to 3rd of November 2018

A very warm Failte (welcome in Irish) as you contemplate the idea of joining us on a Celtic Retreat on the wild and wondrous Beara Peninsula in County Cork…

During this seven day Celtic Retreat at the Anam Cara Retreat Centre I will introduce you to Celtic Spirituality as an ancient, yet very much alive, Spirituality.

Each day we will have Celtic Gatherings where I share with you the Wisdom of our Celtic Spiritual Tradition through Poetry, Stories, Blessings, Poems, Music, Song, Celtic Chant and Celtic Ritual and Ceremony.

We will have a Celtic Gathering introducing you to Brigid – our Goddess and Celtic Saint with Brigid Fire and Water Rituals to cleanse and inspire, becoming familiar with poetry, blessings, song and chants calling Her Spirit close to ours.

During the week you will also journey around this wild and beautiful peninsula stopping for earthing Rituals at some of the Sacred Sites.           On another day we will travel to a Holy Well and a Stone Circle and be part of Celtic Rituals at these Sacred Places.

You will experience mystical Celtic Practices – Practices that you can bring into your daily life.

There is time for personal inner reflection as you make a Journey inward with the Celtic Wisdom Tradition nurturing and inspiring you. Our Retreat takes place at a very special time in our Celtic Calendar….. at Samhain… the beginning of the Celtic New Year.

Following our New Year Gathering, and as sunset draws near on 31 October, we will stand within a Sacred Site on Beara and be part of a Ritual on this Sacred Day, and then a celebratory meal together and a personal reading on such an auspicious evening….

On another of the evenings we will have the pleasure of being joined by a local seanachai (an Irish storyteller).

As we part ways at the end of the week you will travel home or onwards in Ireland with the Celtic Spirit within your hearts and on your lips…..
