$450.00 single occupancy; double occupancy $385; $275 commuters

“Journey with Celtic themes and perennial spiritual wisdom into a deeper awareness of the reality that we are ‘Living in the Presence’ and the great ‘I Am.’ With each passing day, I am living more consciously in awareness of the ‘I Am’ Presence. Nurtured by the spirituality of my Celtic ancestors, I am spiraling on a pathway that has for many years both comforted and stretched me. It has nurtured my soul, touched my heart with healing and inspired my spirit to sing, ultimately drawing me into the heart of the Divine.

I am Irish, I am Christian, I am woman, I am a singer, I am a spiritual guide, I am ... As an ‘anamchara,’ a soul friend, I will invite you in this retreat time into a contemplative prayerful presence, using story and song, so that each of us may become—as the Celts once were—a spiritually sensitive people living in the Presence. It is not a requirement to have Celtic roots to participate in this retreat, only to have an open Celtic heart. I invite you to join me in "Living in the Presence.”
