Our Shrine Mont Retreat theme this year is a continuation of our study of Celtic Christianity and its title is Markers on the Journey. This is an exploration of how we create Sacred Space and what is meant by Thin Places, High Standing Crosses, Sacred Times and Aligning Coordinates. We will discuss early Celtic Monasteries, New Grange and how nature's rhythms affected Celtic Christianity. We will of course have the opportunity to do some more Celtic crafts and form bonds of friendship and fellowship. Come join us on the wonderful journey! We will be staying in Crenshaw and Gibson Houses and I will try and grab a few more room if needed as they become available (see house diagrams below). I am currently researching another book like last year's Anam Cara that will enrich your experience at Shrine Mont and will let you know which ones is chosen once we are a bit closer to the date! Go raibh míle maith agat! (This simple Irish blessing is used in its original Gaelic often in Ireland -one of the few expressions that almost everybody knows. It means 'Many thanks' (literally 'That you may have a thousand good things') and is pronounced Guh rev mee-lah maw og-ut)
