Embracing the Light – A day with Celtic Spirituality teacher Julie Darling
Course Facilitator: Julie Darling
There are many Celtic traditions, but they all share a common vision – that the natural world is the face of the divine. This is a retreat day to deepen your spiritual journey through meditating with live sacred Celtic harp music, reflecting on how connection with nature can enrich our spiritual lives, and learning about the wisdom of the Celtic world. Weather permitting, we will spend time meditating with the harp outside in nature and reflect on how the natural world shows us our own divine aspect at work. There will be silent spaces in the day for walking, resting, journaling, drawing or writing. More information at www.spiritualharp.com
