Celtic Prayer Circle
"Nature remembers what we humans have forgotten: Every cycle must return to stillness, silence, the dark; Every out-breath requires an in-breath: Every outer endeavor turns back inward to its origins, its center, and begins again; From death comes new life, and from the darkest night, the new dawn is born.”

Join us as we continue to celebrate and journey through all eight Celtic seasons acknowledging their individual qualities and energies, gifts, symbols and significance. In the Celtic tradition, the changing seasons were considered “thin places” where the veil between heaven and earth lifted or was nearly transparent. In such thin places, the Celts experienced a deep sense of God’s presence especially through awareness of and alignment with the natural world.
As a community, we seek to cultivate a sense of God by celebrating each season’s special energy through prayer, reflection, chant, ritual, poetry and music, honoring the Sacred in all of creation. The Celtic Wheel of the Year offers an inspirational model and context in which to place the reality of our joys and sorrows within Nature’s rhythms: The continuing birth, death and resurrection of life.
Please note that our prayer gathering circles coincide with sunset. Mark your calendars now for:
- Thursday, December 19, Yule/Winter Solstice, 4:00 - 5:00 p.m., begins the journey of continual sinking and letting go, deeply surrendering to the Holy present in the darkness.
