Celtic Pilgrimage 2019
On this Pilgrim journey you will be invited to experience the beauty of the ancient landscape of Ireland, touch its sacredness and stand in its richness and solitude;
Be present, mindful, open, attentive…
…walk in the footsteps of the Celtic mystics and saints and allow their spirit of courage and trust give you strength and healing;
…hear the stories that shaped their lives and journeys;
…listen to the music and songs that moved them to dream, fired their passionate longings and brought them to stillness;
…imagine and reflect by megalithic tombs and high crosses where they found meaning, comfort and peace;
…be silent on the sacred pathways that will give you space to awaken to the dreams and longings of your own heart.
In the evening you can enjoy relaxing times by the fire with a ‘drop of cheer’ as well as special gatherings in the company of local musicians, singers, dancers and storytellers.
Neart – meaning the creative energy of God in nature, in humanity, in the heavens – invites us into a contemplative understanding of God’s spirit, enabling us to appreciate and enter the oneness of everything in God. There is communion between the visible and the invisible, a wholeness where there is no separateness.Hilary Musgrave
