“May you awaken to the mystery of being here and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence. May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.” -John O’Donohue
Some scholars have said that the “first testament” of the Celtic world (Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Isle of Man, Cornwall, Galicia) was Nature. As those ancient poets and saints reflected on the landscape they inhabited, they were keenly aware of the work of the Beloved, bringing forth all that has been created. Drawing from the poetic prayers offered by the Celtic Christian tradition, our time together will focus on these expressions of faith, hope and love as a means for truly beholding and honoring the creation as divine habitat.
