(ONLINE) JOURNEYING ON A LEAF | A Retreat on the inspirational Christian Saint Ia...

11-09-24 6:30 pm -9:00 pm
20.00

The Irish Saint Ia, at a young age, literally missed the boat when her companions left Ireland, heading for Cornwall. Fearing crossing the sea alone, she prayed and saw a small leaf floating on the water. She watched it and it grew larger and larger. She trusted God, the leaf became her coracle and carried her across the ocean. Ia’s story will be the creative ground from which to draw from in order to deepen your own spirituality. Using Ignatian guided imaginative prayer, you will explore the journey of surrender, solitude, the leafy coracle and the wild elemental ocean, wind and sky. Her incredible odyssey across the sea will also offer beautiful material for your own creative writing. We will explore this beautiful journey in the reflective space of this retreat. All are welcome and no writing experience is needed.

(IN SITU) THE CAVE, THE BLACKBIRD & THE MONSTER |  A Journey with the Christian Contemplative, Saint Kevin. (2)

20-09-24 10:15 am -4:00 pm

A RETREAT ON SAINT KEVIN - AT GLENDALOUGH

20th September 2024 10:30am - 4pm

THE CAVE, THE BLACKBIRD & THE MONSTER |  A Journey with the Christian Contemplative, Saint Kevin.
Imagine going deeper on a journey with the 6th century Saint Kevin... Just a few minutes from the stunning Monastic Site of Glendalough, Ireland, is the Brockagh Resource Centre (close to Glendalough Hermitages / St Kevin's Church) and it’s here that the day retreat will take place. We will use presentation, music, stillness, discussion, to explore the compelling spirituality of this famous hermit including the profound image of Saint Kevin’s Cave, which offers us rich ground for considering contemplative silence and why our hearts often yearn for stillness. The unforgettable story of Saint Kevin and the Blackbird will be presented through storytelling and we’ll explore questions such as: How does this story show the relationship between prayer and creation and prayer and spiritual birth? Space for inner soul work will be offered; the startling symbol of the monster of the lough can be an aid to looking at our own shadow sides and how we can bring these gently to light as well as noticing the hidden treasures we may carry. The day will end (weather permitting) with prayer in the sacred place of Glendalough itself, at St Kevin’s well.

Venue: Brockagh Resource Centre, Laragh House, Ballard, Glendalough, Co. Wicklow, Ireland A98D3H1

Please arrive for 10.15am, we'll start promptly at 10.30am. The day finishes at 3.30pm  Please bring a packed lunch.
