Celtic Christianity and Spiritual Ecology with Lynda Morrisey in August 2023

This workshop is ONLINE

Workshop Description:

Celtic Christian Spirituality is rich with an awareness of the sacred inter-related nature of all of life.

It celebrates the good news that Divine Love and Light is the core essence of every human being, every leaf of grass, every star in the sky.

It also affirms the need for Divine Grace, along with compassionate inner transformation and service to further release the integrity and goodness of the True Self.

The Celtic Christian heart has reverence for the transcendent, unnamable, unknowable aspect of the Divine, and the immanent, Divine dance of creation, manifest in the world around us, in every taste, touch, sight, and sound.

This is a contemplative Christian gathering with a focus on direct experience, and the cultivation of the heart through prayer, meditation, dreamwork, and engaged spiritual ecology mindful awareness practice.

At this time of climate and ecological crisis, there is a need to transition away from a human centric paradigm, to one that recognises the interbeing nature of all of existence. 

We will explore how we can become more rooted in love and peace, and how our faith and spiritual practice can contribute to the wellbeing of the whole.


Week 1: 30 minute meditation/prayer of the heart/centering prayer.
Prayers for the earth and humanity.
Introduction to group dreamwork.

Numbers 12:6 ” I will speak to them in dreams.”
Working with dreams has long been a source of guidance and healing in all cultures throughout history.

Dreams can teach us about ourselves, and reconnect us with the soul as it speaks to us in this ancient language of images and symbols. Some dreams have the potential to point us towards wholeness, integration, and our souls’ destiny in service to Divine Love.

About The Facilitator

  • I’m an ecumenical contemplative Christian with a grá for spiritual ecology. I live a new monastic home life balancing a rhythm of meditation, prayer, blessed
    Sacraments, study, and community climate action, alongside a consultancy career in human rights, humanitarian, and environmental protection organisations.

    My contemplative journey started with John Mains’ Christian Meditation and in more recent years it has deepened with St Teresa of Ávila’s Prayer of the Heart and with Centering Prayer.
    I’m particularly interested in engaged forms of faith and spirituality in response to the global climate and social crises present in our world. I also lead self empowerment workshops for change makers and career change coaching programmes.
    I’ve been involved in Sufi-Christian dialogue for the last 7+ years. I facilitate Celtic Christian spirituality meditation circles, and interfaith gatherings for peace.
