In the early Christian church, the well was seen as a place of healing. Held deep within the earth, a journey to the well nurtured and refreshed the pilgrim who drank of its healing waters. Through this journey of the heart we open to the well within. The call to remember with this ancient civilization is to retrieve that which we have lost and longed for in these current times. Deirdre is renown for her work and and is gifted in providing an opportunity to creatively reflect on the personal and collective journey. Through music, movement , prayer and poetry, this retreat will guide a return home, to the Spirit of God within.
