Celtic Spirituality Gathering: Honoring Samhain
Online Celtic Spirituality Gathering: Honoring Samhain – The Celtic New Year
Guided by Mary Meighan, founder of Celtic Journeys, live from Ireland – with songs & chants by Seán Johnson
(Time Zones: 11am-1:30pm Pacific/ noon-2:30pm Mountain/ 1-3:30pm Central/ 2-4:30pm Eastern)
Celtic spirituality is the indigenous spirituality of Ireland. It is a gentle, nature based way of being that invites us to be our authentic selves and to live from our heart.
This soul-nourishing ‘time out of time’ gathering will take place during the revitalizing and potent time of Samhain, which marks the Celtic New Year. You’re invited to experience the depth and profoundly simple inspiration of Celtic Spirituality through Irish blessings, songs, poems, rituals, stories, chants, music, reflection, and Celtic wisdom. Samhain is a special liminal time carrying a powerful energy, inviting deeper connection to our ancestors, to our intuition, to the mystery of the unseen world, and invoking release and renewal.
Whether you are someone who knows very little and is curious about how the living spiritual tradition of Celtic Spirituality can nourish our lives; someone who has always been inspired by the Celtic world; or someone who has ancestry from the Celtic world who wishes to deepen your connection to those roots– all are welcome.
Mary Meighan, a native of Ireland, is the founder of Celtic Journeys who offers soul journeys steeped within her native Celtic Spiritual Tradition. Mary has traveled to sacred sites across Ireland for decades renewing, sustaining, and sharing her passion for the Celtic world. She also visits the U.S. and other countries introducing Celtic Spirituality through talks and retreats, sharing her lived experience of this mystical and earthy Spirituality. Mary will be joining the immersion live from her home in Ireland.
