Event Description: A retreat of coming together to explore the experiences in our lives which have touched us most deeply and which have opened us to the sacred. This retreat is a continuation of an evening event where we both together shared moments in our lives which had contributed to our spiritual unfolding. We would very much like to extend this invitation to others so that we can be inspired together and benefit as a group from the deeper understanding and support which arises from this. It is our belief that we are all a part of a greater emerging sacred wholeness, and that the calling at this time is to recognise and affirm this wisdom and acknowledge and honour all of our lives.
The retreat will combine times of sharing, along with opportunities for quiet reflection, and through writing, art, music and poetry exploring creative ways to express and share some of the gifts of our innermost experience.
Phyllida Anam-Aire is a native speaker of Gaelic who was brought up in a small mountain village in Donegal, where she learned Celtic mythology and rituals such as singing for the dying. She studied to become a Catholic nun, but changed course to learn humanistic psychology with Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. She is now a bereavement counsellor and the author of A Celtic Book of Dying.
Sara Trevelyan is a counsellor/psychotherapist and graduate in Barbara Brennan energy medicine, who has been living and practising in Edinburgh for 30 years. She was brought up in Australia, but returned to London to train in medicine in her early twenties.
