Cranaleith Spiritual Center

A Sanctuary of Trees, A Sanctuary of Mercy

Gaelic for “sanctuary of trees,” Cranaleith is a retreat and conference center for those who wish to reflect on what matters deeply in their lives, renew their spirit for life and work, or restore themselves from life’s traumas. Individuals and groups are invited to participate in retreats and other programs in a spirit-rekindling environment of well-being, respect, and harmony. Cranaleith is a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Mercy.

Featured Program

Call and Response: A Day of Storytelling and Music-making (onsite) with Timothy Simmons

Timothy will share one of his stories and lead participants through a series of improvised music-making exercises. Then, participants will be guided through the process of turning their life experiences into stories of their own. At the end of the day, participants will share their stories, while their audience will respond by creating the musical soundtrack for each story. No prior musical or writing experience is necessary; all experience levels will be honored. Timothy will provide musical instruments and writing materials, but please feel free to bring your own as well. Come, tell your story with us! Lunch included. Learn more and register HERE.
