Celtic Spirituality Retreat on a wild and beautiful island off the west coast of Ireland.

Renew your spirit, kindle your soul, and stir your imagination on this one-of-a-kind, intimate, spiritual retreat in one of Ireland’s most enchanting places. We’ll retreat on Inis Mor– a small island off the west coast of Ireland– where Gaeilge (Irish) is the native language and Celtic traditions flourish. Celtic spirituality is the indigenous spirituality of Ireland. It is a gentle, nature based way of being that invites us to be our authentic selves and to live from our heart. On this retreat, experience the depth and profoundly simple inspiration of Celtic Spirituality through Irish blessings, songs, poems, stories, chants, music, meditations, rituals, visits to sacred sites, connection with locals, gentle candlelit evening yoga sessions inspired by Celtic wisdom, and free time to wander the island.

“Shared time with you two and our entire Pilgrim Family on the beautiful Island of Inis Mor has been heart soothing, mind calming and soul quenching. I came to the retreat open to its offerings and I leave the retreat more open to life, the internal stirrings and fire as well as the external. Feeling grounded, cradled and full of gratitude. Your guidance and this land – heartful blessings and full of gifts I cherish dearly.” – Tehroma

“It would have been more than enough to have only experienced the abundant, luscious sights, sounds, experiences and ideas offered to the group on Inis Mor. Mary and Sean invite everyone to come in and keep close, when folks wish to. But for me, in addition, my sense of understanding subtly changed and I can’t for the life of me explain; its purview lies beyond thoughts and words. You have to come here and wrap yourself around that Celtic Spirit, and identify that sense for yourself.” – Karen

“Thanks so much for the fully engaging and gentle retreat.  I was especially grateful to get to know you both in such a sacred setting along with the trips to ancient sites around the island.  I will take with me all of your gems of Celtic wisdom, stories , laughter, and Sean’s beautiful Irish songs which all are inside me.” – Mary

“For me it was the space created by Sean and Mary, the stories, songs, chanting, encouragement, shared experience, and genuine love for the Celtic way that allowed for such beauty to emerge in all of us. I keep looking at the pictures shared by others, the warmth in my chest, the quickening of my heart and joy in my soul are the result.” – Meg
