    Special Events

    From Friday 11 May 2018 -  18:00
    To Sunday 13 May 2018 - 17:00

    A transformative residential weekend retreat full of profound spiritual teaching, supported self-inquiry, meditation, chanting and prayer in a beautiful, peaceful setting within 75 minutes' drive from Dublin and Belfast.  

    Let Miranda Macpherson take you on a journey through and beyond the habits of mind to access the deeper dimensions of your being. 


    Miranda Macpherson transmits an integrated and feminine approach to non-dual realisation, within a tangible atmosphere of unconditional love. Inspired by Ramana Maharshi, A Course in Miracles, the Diamond Approach and extensive study of the world's mystical traditions, Miranda is known for her depth of presence and refined capacity as a guide into direct experience of the Sacred.  At the age of 26 Miranda founded the "OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation", where she trained and ordained over 600 ministers and spiritual counsellors.   Author of "Boundless Love" and the "Heart of Being" mantra CD, she is presently working on a new book "The Way of Grace".   Today, Miranda leads the "Awakening Love & Wisdom" sangha in Northern California and guides mature seekers on retreats internationally. 

    While you may have heard other non-dual spiritual teachers, we can assure you that Miranda is quite unique. She is generating excitement around the world as a spiritual pioneer who has steeped herself in the world’s mystical traditions and developed a unique body of teachings. She has a down-to-earth, no-nonsense directness that flows from her Australian upbringing, which is paired with a honeyed voice that calls us tenderly home — her words like a mother’s lullaby (and it’s no coincidence that she is a beautiful singer weaving chanting mantras as well as profound meditations throughout her teachings).  Miranda’s work is a synthesis of self-inquiry, spiritual psychology, devotion and meditation practice offered with a feminine grace that embraces our everyday human experience as a gateway into the depths of our true nature. Through a blend of silent transmission and articulate teaching, she leads retreats and on-going programs oriented to guiding people into direct spiritual experience while providing a practical map for actualizing our realization into daily life. Drawing from the ancient lineages of Advaita and mystical Christianity, along with more recent wisdom teachings such as A Course In Miracles, Miranda leads from the ground of unconditional love and compassion for our humanity — emphasizing receptivity, discrimination and surrender.
