Why does the Celtic world captivate us so?
It seems to tease us, like the mist that swirls on the edge of the sea.
Beckoning, with ancient wisdom, to consider a more unified life.
If you’re here, you’re probably one of us who are just done with plastic, surface level living.
Feeling disconnected from ourselves, our bodies, the earth, and each other has launched us on a search for so. much. more.
The good news is–we don’t have to look for anything new.
While your social media feed is filled with guarantees of enlightenment, cutting edge technologies, and life hacks, the truth is, millions of our ancestors were experts in this search.
They can serve as guides for us in our disconnected lives, walking with us as soul friends, leading us down the paths that led them to divine union–and wholeness.
The Christian Celts are some of these wise guides.
Their lives may seem like a dream to us:
Imagine a time when the divine spark was recognized (and revered!) in every creature.
When monks and lay people shared hearth and home.
When wanderlust fueled journeys into unknown waters,
And foreign people were held with curiosity and honor.
A time when mysticism mothered morals,
And when feminine strength was welcomed and assumed.
When thin spaces–places where the veil between heaven and earth seemed to be drawn back–were everywhere, from sacred sites to sacred thresholds in life.
When prayer was much more expansive, embracing song and color and movement and verse as equally important ways of connecting with divine Mystery.
When oak trees and kindling fires and baking bread were part of their daily liturgies.
When the Spirit - often portrayed as the wily Wild Goose - roamed free, untamed.
