Quarterly Gathering – School of Celtic Consciousness (February)
February 17 - 18, 2020
Theme – Peregrinations pro Christo
Participants will be invited into the call of wandering in search of the Christ in the world. We will delve into the concept of pilgrimage as an openness to being led by the Divine in our wandering search. Like St. Columbanus and other Irish monks of his time who might have declared that they would “rove to rest”, we will explore the idea of pilgrimage, in itself, as a spiritual homecoming.
These day-long events are an opportunity to gather with others who have been part of the annual school, as well as those who would like to take a day to explore the themes and practices of Celtic spirituality in community.
The quarterly gathering can include an overnight ‘mini-retreat’. Guests can arrive the evening before the event, stay overnight in our Main Building in single or shared rooms. There is time to slow down, read or journal by the fire, meditate or pray in our interfaith prayer space, or go for a walk in the forest. The Gathering takes place between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm (check-in between 9:30 and 9:45, then 10 minutes of silence together before beginning). You can also just come for the day and not include an overnight.

November 5th, 2019 (Threshold Moments)
February 18th, 2020 (Peregrinations pro Christo)
