Summer Retreats 2020

Summer Guided Retreat: When the soul longs and the heart sings!

Date: Sunday, June 14 – Saturday, June 20, 2020

The sickness of our times is ‘forgetting’ who we are. This retreat will inspire remembering the truth of who we are and to whom we belong. Carmel Boyle will guide this retreat, drawing on Celtic and contemplative wisdom, that will expand the heart center with a sense of belonging. It is an invitation to attune our hearts for deeper relationship with the Holy One and contemplate our soul’s longing for the Great Mystery.

Carmel offers an experience of praying together, with gentle guidance, a sacred contemplative space, pondering questions, inspiring stories and her unique original sacred songs. Participants will hear the song in their own hearts and let their hearts sing. Themes for the retreat are inspired by the Celtic and Christian Mystical Traditions that have inspired Carmel’s own heart and contemplative spirit. Her songs are the basis of her presentations and incapsulate her spiritual message. Participants will be invited to journey with Irish saints and mystical women. Participants will listen to songs and engage with the stories of Celtic saints and women mystics.

Breakfast and lunch will be shared in prayerful silence and conversation will be enjoyed at dinner.

Presenter: Carmel Boyle MMin hails from Monasterboice in the Boyne Valley at the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East. She is a singer/ songwriter of spiritually orientated and contemplative songs. She is a spiritual director, supervisor and co-founder of An Croí Wisdom Institute, a centre for psycho-spiritual training and wellbeing. She is a contemporary Beguine and is co-founder of An Croí Beguines in Ireland. Flowing from her training in theology, spirituality, supervisory practice, expressive arts, holistic modalities and of course her songs, she offers a contemplative space that nurtures the creative healing spirit. Her work places a focus on recovering the Celtic Christian Spiritual Tradition and the Mystical Tradition. Her work is influenced by her belief that the expressive arts can be a doorway to Divine encounter and spiritual growth.

Summer Preached Retreat: Christmas in June: The Hallmark Channel versus the Prophet Isaiah

Date: Sunday, June 21 — Saturday, June 27,2020

Millions of people, including me, are caught up in the many Hallmark Christmas movies. The Prophet Isaiah creates Servant Songs to have us get caught up with Emmanuel. Isaiah conjures up mental images while Hallmark lances our hearts. Over five days and ten presentations I will pray to merge the heads and the hearts of all participants. That "Emmanuel: God with us" is less an expression and more an experience.
