Celtic Wisdom in Changing Times

Join The Rev.

We will be exploring the stories of the Celtic saints, delving into unique spiritual practices, wrestling gently with creative theological perspectives, and creating a “crane bag” of gifts from our Celtic ancestors to help see us through these troubled times. 

No theological training or previous experience necessary … just bring an open mind and heart!

All sessions are on-the-land, accessible (drive down), and participants please bring your own lawn-chairs.
