About Seamus

Brother Seamus (Seamus Byrne) is a composer, performer and retreat facilitator who travels internationally giving concerts, retreats, workshops, missions, spiritual reflections  and recitals. His music is relaxing, prayerful and deeply engaging, inviting the listener to relax and rest in the Presence of Christ. He sings and plays flute to inspire people to love God, his compositions and songs having a deeply relaxing and spiritually uplifting effect.

Seamus is a member of the Servants of Love community which has a house in Wicklow Town. This Roman Catholic lay community of celibate men and women live a monastic lifestyle and are involved in helping people live healthy, happy and fulfilled lives. The community runs a health resource centre and shop and are sought after for their knowledge of healthy living for physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

Brother Seamus’ mission is to encourage people to ‘Be with God’. He draws much on the Christian Spirituality of the Irish Celtic Saints who lived between the 5th and 10th centuries. Their spirituality was practical, earth-friendly and mystical, and is more than suitable for our modern busy world which can be, at times, very stressful.

During his performances, he sings and chants in the Celtic style, plays a variety of Celtic and World flutes, and plays Bodhrán (Irish hand drum). He speaks about the love of Jesus in a way that is attractive and engaging. His goal is that each person may ‘find’ themself in Christ and be completely fulfilled in that intimate relationship.
