ONGOING COMMUNITY :
Newcomers will have the opportunity to consider joining one of our Céile Dé groups in the Edinburgh and Stirling area, offering a powerful container for those seeking a path that invites commitment and openness to real inner change.
Sr. Fionntulach belongs to the Céili Dé (The Servants or Spouses of God), a Celtic Christian spiritual Order based in Scotland.
She is both a teacher of the tradition and an Anam Chara (‘Soul Friend’ or Spiritual Guide). Her life is divided between leading a contemplative life, serving her community and giving teachings to the growing community, both in Europe and in the USA, who feel called to walk the Céile Dé Path in these times.
Sister Fionn, as most people call her, describes the Céile Dé tradition as “a glorious blend of Celtic reverence for Nature, disciplined practice, great beauty and Christ-consciousness - the transformative power of Love.”
Marion Wilson has been following the Céile Dé Tradition for about 7 years. She is a member of the longest-standing Céile Dé group in Scotland.
She teaches the Foundational teachings and loves sharing the beautiful teachings with newcomers. Serving the Céile Dé community in whatever way she can is a joy and a privilege.
