A LIGHT IN THE EARTH: MYSTERY SCHOOL

OF ANCESTRAL CELTIC WISDOM

If you and your community are interested in a custom-tailored workshop or retreat, of whatever duration, I would be happy to create a special program to meet the specific needs and interests of your group.

November 22-24, 2019

La Foret

Black Forest, CO

Cost: $420 (lodging and meals included)

Join healer, spiritual teacher, author, storyteller, and poet-seer, Brendan Ellis Williams, for an immersive and experiential exploration of Gaelic and Welsh ancestral traditions. Together in the bonds of community, participants will explore deep-rooted threads of Celtic story, spirituality, theology, and contemplative practice.

Brendan teaches his ancestral Gaelic and Welsh traditions through a lens of rewilding and reclaiming, by experiential immersion of head and heart, body and soul, challenging popular assumptions regarding 'Celtic Christianity' and the oft romanticized traditions of his archaic Ancestors. He is author of the forthcoming book, Seeds from the Wild Verge: Myth, Nature, and Theology in the Border Stream of Celtic Wisdom (Ancient Oak, 2019).

 A LIGHT IN THE EARTH 

MYSTERY SCHOOL OF ANCESTRAL CELTIC WISDOM

A seven-month, immersive experience of deep spiritual formation, learning, and community, framed by the wisdom of indigenous Celtic myth, folklore, spirituality, and lifeways.

Are you ready to embark on a journey of profound spiritual transformation with the rich support of indigenous European wisdom? Are you hungering for deep roots, for connection to chthonic depths of Beauty, to a restored sense of interbeing and interrelationality with the sacred, living Earth? Are you drawn to an immersive experience of ancient Gaelic and other Celtic myth, spirituality, and lifeways? Do you long to be part of an intimate community of spiritual learning, healing, and renewal? 

 

If so, then perhaps you’re being called by the Ancestors, by Spirit and the spirits to explore a new and ancient pathway of spiritual formation and initiation, to pierce the veil between worlds, to connect with the tutelary souls and mythic wisdom-streams of the great Celtic traditions, and with the vital, unseen dimensions of the sacred Land on which you walk.

 

You are, in that case, most warmly welcomed and invited to embark on a seven-month sacred journey with spiritual teacher, counselor, author, scholar of Celtic traditions, priest, healer, herbalist, and poet-seer, Brendan Ellis Williams. In this immersive journey of formation and transformation, you will be shaped both experientially and conceptually in the sacred lifeways of Brendan’s ancestral traditions of Irish, Scottish, and Welsh spirituality, and prepared in heart, mind, and soul for a culminating experience of sacramental initiation. This will be a journey of profound connection, healing, restoration, learning, re-rooting, rewilding, and re-membering.
