Contemplation and the Celtic Spirit
In this retreat we will be taking a deeper look at the sacred around us and within us and how we can create spaces for both. If you are seeking more of what is sacred in your life, then this is a great place to start.
This introductory retreat will give you the tools to ground your spiritual life in the wisdom of trees and rivers, to explore the universe which is within you, and to live with compassion and integrity in a world which is far too often dark and unhealthy.
You can see what the retreat will look like below, several videos are available for preview. In the "Read me first" section there is more detailed information which you can peruse.
We hope to see you soon!
Justin Coutts is a contemplative teacher living on the beautiful and mysterious Manitoulin Island. While his practice is primarily Celtic Christian today his religious life has been very diverse. He spent many years as an apprentice to an Ojibwe elder helping people on vision quests deep in the Canadian wilderness. He was also raised in a traditional rural Quaker community which is still an important part of his contemplative practice.
Today, Justin is the author of In Search of a New Eden and is working to find the intersection of these traditions and lineages. Through Celtic Christianity he hopes to bring people closer to the natural world and closer to their own souls – that we all may return to Eden like the Prodigal Son and live once more in harmony with wind and waves, trees and moss, rocks and stars.
