The Celtic imagination sees the natural world as a revelation of the Divine. The Celtic way is a spiral path of unfolding that leads into the inner dream space of possibility where we move past our left brain preoccupation with planning and list making, and into a place where we can begin to tend to the slow ripening of our souls, and see what new fruits are emerging.
The Irish landscape is sacred and offers many opportunities to both give and receive healing. Our early monastic history integrated Christian teachings with earlier Druidic wisdom, creating a spirituality that was more indigenous to the way we live. We will meet these energies strongly in many of the sacred sites we visit.
