Contemplative Weekend Retreat - Holy Wells and Thin Places, the Wisdom of the Celtic Saints

The Celts - the early Christian saints - were a people of a vibrant and deep Christian spirituality, rooted in a deep love of nature and anchored in a joyful sense of Divine Presence. On this silent retreat we will celebrate the stories of the Celts and explore prayers and practices — including the distinctively Celtic approach to contemplative prayer.
