The Happy Heart Is True Irish and Celtic Wisdom and Spirituality in Story, Poetry, and Song

For everyone.

Join Owen and Mícheál “Moley” Ó Súilleabháin for an immersion into the greater Celtic tradition and contemporary Irish culture. At Easter time, we reenact the ancient story of death and rebirth, of moving through darkness into the glorious dawn of a new beginning.

Explore themes of Celtic spirituality such as St. Brigid and the Celtic calendar, and enjoy a unique and vibrant illumination of Irish spiritual and traditional song and poetry. These joyous teachings can touch the soul of anyone, regardless of their background, reminding us that we have the choice to navigate through life with a happy heart—a true heart.

Owen and Moley, together with their mother, world-renowned Irish theologian and singer Rev. Nóirín Ní Riain, invite you to learn poems, sing songs, and take shelter, so you can return to the roots of reflection and presence that this season holds.

Note Rev. Nóirín Ní Riain will be presenting Saturday and Sunday morning via live video link from her cottage in Limerick, Ireland.
