The Celtic Center invites you to explore your life from a Celtic spiritual perspective. We offer personal formation teaching, retreats, and experiential learning as well as an 18-month training program in Spiritual Direction to assist you in your good work of guiding others to deep and meaningful life. The ancient and contemporary Celtic perspective provides a way into meaningful life, spiritual growth, and a path to connecting with God, Self, and Nature that trusts that the human soul has a rich history of living harmoniously in dialogue with Nature and with the Divine in order to create meaningful and substantial lives. Our programs assist the soul on its life-long journey and encourage an interconnection with the beauty of Creation, the vitality of thriving relationships with one another in community, and a contemplative encounter with the Divine.

You are invited to any of our seminars or retreat experiences as you desire to enhance your own spiritual and personal journey. Additionally, we hope you will consider a commitment to the 18-month program to prepare you to guide others effectively as you offer spiritual direction. As you complete the entire program, you will receive a Certificate in Spiritual Direction and the confidence and skills that enable you to guide others with proficiency, artistry, and wisdom.

Join us this January for the first in the seminar series. The Celtic Spirit is an invitation into several Celtic themes such as the dignity of the human soul, the dialogue with Nature as a source of spiritual wisdom, our responsibility toward all of Creation, the beauty of interpersonal relationships as the arena of spiritual growth and expression, and the poetic elucidation of the human soul as an expression of Divine beauty and creativity.

Visit our website at for more information and feel free to contact Dr. Kirk Webb with any questions or comments. Kirk’s contact information can be found on the website.

We hope to see you in January and further seminars in March and May. The entire program consists of six seminars as well as several other training experiences:

The Celtic Spirit (Introduction to Celtic Themes): January 4-6, 2018, Thursday – Saturday
Landscape of the Soul (A Celtic Conversation of Soul and Nature): March 1-3, 2018, Thursday – Saturday
