The ancient tradition of Céile Dé leads us through the gap between our highest aspiration and our everyday reality. Even as we seek that which lies Beyond, we remain grounded in reverence for the Earth that gives us life and ever-births the Incarnation in our surrendered hearts. Suspended between Heaven and Earth, we follow our deep desire to unite the two in Christ and experience the transformative power of Love. 

This experiential introduction to the tradition’s philosophy and time-tested practices for spiritual growth, offered by Sue Mosher, an ordained Céile Dé teacher, will explore powerful Gaelic sacred chants, the ancient holy days and seasons of the Gael, and a way of life that supports real transformation through meditation, devotion, and inner witnessing. 

ONGOING COMMUNITY: 
Newcomers will have the opportunity to experience further, ongoing practice within a local group that offers a powerful container for those who seek a path of commitment and openness to real inner change.

LOCATION AND COST:
The retreat will take place at Wisdom House Retreat & Conference Center, located near historic Litchfield, Connecticut, on 70 country acres, from Friday dinner through an after-lunch session on Sunday. Both commuter and residential options are available. Commuter cost $270, residential $315/365. Register at www.termonn.org

Who Is Minding the Gap?

  • Universalist National Memorial Church

A great gap seems to lie between our understanding of the elements of spiritual life and our actual practice. Is it a black hole swallowing all our good intentions? Or is there something in that gap to help us across? In a sermon for the 3rd Sunday of Advent, Sue Mosher, a deacon at Universalist National Memorial Church, invites Mary, philosopher Jacob Needleman, and an unidentified Russian pilgrim to venture with us into that opening.

John Philip Newell lecture

The great spiritual quest of the Western world today is not about belief in God. It is about the experience of God. It is about seeking to encounter Sacredness now—in the earth, in our relationships with one another, and in the simple disciplines of contemplative practice. 

In a Friday night lecture and a Saturday workshop under the auspices of the Shalem Institute, John Philip Newell—drawing on the ancient insights of Celtic Spirituality—will explore a spirituality of intimacy with the natural world, a spirituality that opens to the treasure of other religious traditions, and a spirituality that grounds its commitment to justice in the daily practice of prayer and meditation.  Friday night's talk will include meditative chanting; the Saturday workshop will be more experiential, with silence, meditative practice and small- and large-group sharing.
