To journey through the Celtic world is to travel widely. The call to remember with this ancient civilisation, our ancestors, is to retrieve that which we have lost and longed for in these current times. During this five day retreat, Deirdre will guide and explore themes of soul loss, disconnection and the return home to the Spirit of God within.
Celtic Christian Spirituality becomes our well source, as we journey through life, death and renewal, our connection to nature, the redemption of love and the splendour of creation.
There will be a strong element of personal reflective, meditation and prayer time both individually and in groups and crossing the threshold through music, ritual, meditation and prayer, we are invited to the union of one note, the song of who we are and can be, singing and praising the gift and glory of creation.
Deirdre Ni Chinneide is a trained psychotherapist, spiritual director and workshop facilitator. Deirdre has worked all over Ireland, the USA and Europe including Bosnia and Kosovo. The Aran Islands with its unique history, culture and natural beauty provides a special setting for the retreat work, and was the place of inspiration for Celtic passage, a journey of the heart which Deirdre leads through music, reflection and prayer.
Deirdre divides her time between the Aran Islands and the mainland offering retreats, workshops and performances of spiritual music. She also works part time with Partners in Faith, a Catholic adult faith education programme working in marginalised areas in Ireland.
