Spiritual Practices

These practices are offered freely to anyone. You may use them in, and adjust them for, your own life as you see fit. If you share them with others please be kind enough to say where you got them from. These practices are created with a Celtic contemplative spirit in mind. They are of a monastic flavour, though meant to be used by by people living in the world. They are well suited to a person with a job and a family. There will be more added as time goes by and you are invited to contact Justin for guidance if you choose to practice them. He can usually be found in the Virtual Chapel.

Why Have a Spiritual Practice?

A brief explanation of the need for a spiritual practice which guides and teaches us. A rule of life can shine the light of truth into our soul and fasting can show us how much our physical comfort impacts our ability to love. If you’re wondering why you would even want to follow a rule or observe an office click the title above.

Contemplative Prayer

Contemplative prayer is an essential part of what we do. In the silence we are free and in the silence we are one. Our community currently meets weekly online for shared live silent prayer and discussion around the mystics, contemplatives, and poets who inspire us. You are more than welcome to join us every Monday at 8:30 pm EST.

Lenten Office

A three fold practice for Lent designed to engage mind, body, and spirit. We also have a Facebook group where people observing Lent together can discuss their experience with others and learn from one another. It is called Carghais Clochán and you are invited to join us!

Rule of Life

This rule is based on the scriptures, the early church, and the Celtic Christian tradition. It is broad but difficult attitudes towards life and God and others more than it is a code of specific rules and regulations. Yet, to live the life Christ has called us to is no easy task. Join us as we try our best to live in Christ’s image.
