Celtic Spirituality Retreat: Learning from the Turning of the Seasons

Saturday, October 29, 2016 | 10:00am

As we move deeper into the heart of autumn, enjoy a day apart to explore the heart of Celtic Christianity and how this ancient tradition can nourish us in today’s world. Explore the Celtic calendar and consider how we mark the turning of the seasons in our own lives. Learn how the Celts looked to nature as the first book of revelation, and notice for yourself how the landscape has valuable spiritual lessons to teach.  Morning sessions combine discussion and reflection exercises, while time apart in the afternoon allows you an extended period of silence to go deeper into the wisdom that speaks to you.

Dr. Terri Lynn Simpson is the founder of Anam Cara Retreats. Celtic spirituality is her path, writing is her practice, and inviting people into thin places where they may share their stories and experience the presence of the Holy is her work. In addition to having a graduate degree in theology and a doctorate in Spirituality and Story, Terri is a long-time student of Celtic spirituality. Grounded in the three-fold practices of prayer, pilgrimage, and poetry, she weaves strands of these Celtic influences into the retreats, pilgrimages and workshops she leads in the US and in the UK for churches, healing ministries, women’s groups, and faith based non-profit organizations.
