RETREATS ~ Guided retreats are offered throughout the year. These retreats combine insights from psychology, the wisdom of ancient and modern teachers and saints, qigong, and a variety of spiritual practices.
I also create and facilitate personal ~ solo retreats based on the Celtic night of prayer and designed uniquely for each individual.
HOUSE BLESSINGS ~ Physics, Chinese medicine and religious traditions agree that our world is surrounded by and filled with energy. Sometimes, a painful incident, such as illness or death, an act of violence, or an unhappy or abusive marriage ending in divorce, leaves residual unhealthy energy that can linger in a home or business affecting your own energy and emotions. Most spiritual traditions use a blessing or cleansing ritual to remove or change this undesirable energy. I will meet with you to discuss the reasons you desire a blessing or cleansing ritual. Then I will prayerfully create a ritual targeting your specific situation.
CELTIC CHRISTIAN AND INTERFAITH CONTEMPLATIVE GATHERINGS ~ I celebrate Celtic Contemplative Communion and Interfaith Gatherings a few special times during the year. (see news and events for dates, times, and places) While these liturgies are grounded in the Celtic Christian tradition, they express a deep ecumenism and utilize readings from ancient and modern writers and thinkers as well as scriptures and ritual from other spiritual traditions. These gatherings are...
~ A place where the Holy Writings of all religions are viewed as truth inspired by the Divine, but are not interpreted literally.
~ A place where ritual engages and stimulates the senses, uplifts the spirit and captivates the mind.
~ A place where you are encouraged to live a life that follows the Way of Jesus, the Way of the Tao, and the Golden Rule expressed by all faiths. ~ A place for spiritual growth where we remember "Our times of religious observation and meditative practice are not alternatives to encountering God in the ever-flowing stream of life. Rather they are moments of preparing ourselves to be alert to the One who is always and everywhere present, closer to us than we are to ourselves.” (John Philip Newell, The Book of Creation: An Introduction to Celtic Spirituality). ~ A place for healing, where no one is excluded from Holy Communion. In addition, I am available to celebrate a Communion Service - Holy Eucharist at your home or special event with a small gathering of friends and family.
