Deirdre is a psychotherapist/spiritual director and singer/composer. She is in Australia for a short time in October and will offer a retreat/workshop Saturday Oct 19 (9am – 3pm) at the Archer Mountain Earth Community (AMEC) and an afternoon of music and song from Ireland in the church hall at Woodford for the local community and beyond on Sunday 20th October (2.00pm – 4.30pm) .
The Celtic Spirit travels widely and seeks to retrieve what the heart has been lost and longed for in these current times. The experiences offered through music, ritual, reflection, sharing, poetry and song invite participants into connecting with their deepest desires for peace in a spirit of relaxation, enchantment and joy. The Celts spoke of crossing ‘thresholds’ that took them into places where they were able to connect deeply with the natural world and with those who shared their life’s journey. It was referred to as a ‘thin place’. Please come, enjoy and learn more about Celtic music and song and its special gift to our world that struggles to live in the way of love and harmony.
