When Cath is not recording or performing on one of her Celtic harps, she is immersing herself in the fascinating and diverse world of spirituality. Cath facilitates workshops, seminars and retreats in creative spirituality.
These can be tailored according to the wishes of the participants - secular or non-secular, in all their combinations.
Combining her love of both Celtic harp and spirituality, Cath's topics include:
- Celtic Spirituality (introduction & survey)
- Celtic Spirituality (in-depth)
- Spirituality of Sufficiency
- Being Present to Presence
- Brigid, Goddess and Saint
- Creative Spirituality
- Relaxation & Meditation
- Life & Spirituality of Hildegaard von Bingen
Of course, the harp becomes an integral part of these workshops!
In November 2013 Cath accepted the invitation to become the Co-Director of the Living Well Centre for Christian Spirituality. This centre is actively engaged in the ministry of Spiritual Direction.
