The Path of Céile Dé
Céile Dé ~ Servant… Companion… Friend of God.
The path of Céile Dé travels through God, to God. It is a 'journey-less journey' towards the realisation that we are One with The Divine. Rooted in a Native Gaelic Spirituality, it has a deep reverence for our Mother Earth and all Her children... branching into Christ-consciousness, it fulfils itself in Unconditional Love.
The spiritual life of Céile Dé is largely contemplative and nurtures a deep and devotional relationship with that Great Mystery we call God - The Invisible Beloved, Whose Face is Everywhere...
It seeks a balance between devotional practice and transformative work, releasing us from the tyrannical hold of the unconscious, conditioned, illusory self, so that it may return home, in a state of True Being, to the Belovèd Divine.
It seeks to heal our broken relationship with Matter… Mater... Mother Nature, as well as developing the imaginal faculties, the language of soul, through observing the Celtic Holy Days that mark the “Wheel of the Year” and through creative study of Celtic mythology, the 'Old Testament of the Gael'.
When we create and inhabit the right conditions for real transformation then awareness grows: gradually, it feeds and fills every moment in every day with the fruit of Spiritual practice: increasingly, Something More shines from everything we perceive and everyone we encounter. We are digging deep inside ourSelves to discover that The Saviour is there… has always been there... and we are, at last, awakening from an unconsciousness and powerlessness that causes, at best, our gnawing discontent, at worst, the gradual destruction of our world.

It is understood through the testament of the Earth
