Temporarily closed due to the pandemic

Hello and thank you for your interest in retreating to Anam Cara. From where I sit in my cocoon, it seems that the best we can do at the moment is wait each day to see what the latest developments and instructions are. Because of that, I think we will have to postpone booking retreats until we can find a time that will work safely for everybody. Right now, it sounds like none of us should be going too far from home as well as we should still be spending as little time as possible in close proximity to others. Please let me know how best to reach you, and I'll be in touch as soon as it will be safe to open the retreat for residencies and workshops. In the meantime, I send my best wishes for your safety and good health, Sue

Sacred Living Sacred Dying, A Pilgrimage
Led by Meghan Don

In Life there is Death and in Death there is Life. Our explorations take us into the Celtic Wisdom of Living and Dying, the mystic death of the moment, and what is being asked of us to come fully into our lives here and now. The land herself is one of our greatest teachers in living and dying. With our excursions we will allow the land to become our teacher.

We will also open to the Crone of Beara herself, the most ancient of ancients -- she who is known as ordering the very process of Life and Death. We will use writings from Druidic and Christian mystic wisdom texts, and poetic sources to inspire our contemplations.
