(IN SITU) GLENDALOUGH RETREAT - SAINT KEVIN RETREAT AT GLENDALOUGH, IRELAND -THE CAVE, THE BLACKBIRD & THE MONSTER
The stunning monastic site of Ireland’s Glendalough was founded by the 6thC Saint Kevin. Imagine going deeper on a journey with this wonderful Christian saint in Glendalough itself - just a few minutes’ walk from Glendalough heritage site is the lovely Glendalough Sanctuary, 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 offer 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 dramatic 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 with a slow motion walking meditation in the sacred place of Glendalough.
Wednesday 12th July 10.30am-4.30pm (Coffee from 10am) Cost 85 euros (includes vegetarian lunch)
