"If you can't find me someday... look in the Burren high on a hill in a little stone house overlooking the sea. Water's hot for tea. Come on in..."

Stefan Andre Waligur is also known as Macushla, an Irish term of endearment meaning "heartbeat of the beloved". Living in Ireland, Stefan is a contemplative, and a musician/composer.  

He is also a retreat leader and leader of new chant and kirtan around the world. He is an Oblate member of the Benedictine Community called Shantivanam in India.
