Content of this workshop:
An important cradle of Christianity lies in the early Middle Age Irish civilisation and a deep fascination emerges from these ancient Irish days of old. In Great Britain, but also on the Continent a new awareness of the wisdom and richness of the Celtic interpretation of the Gospel grows for people wanting to have a more sensual and holistic approach to faith. In this workshop we try to get to know basic Celtic insights and will evaluate which of them fit for us and our journey towards a sensitive way of living. Of course, some Celtic chants and the sounds of the Celtic harp will get us in the right tune.
