Spirals of Peace at An Tobar
Yearning for a deeply nurturing getaway this winter? If so, make sure you check out An Tobar, a Spiritan retreat centre that offers a beautiful space for rest and contemplation. We love one of the core concepts that guides their work: ‘a spiral of belonging’. This honours the fact that people participate in the community according to their particular calling, inclination and time.
