Ireland has held my heart for many years— I can’t wait to share it with you!
Join a group of kindred spirits as we breathe into the landscape and find our footing in this ancient place. We’ll move slowly, savoring, meditating, journaling, sketching. This journey is not about seeing the sites...
... it’s about grounding in and experiencing the magical energies rooted in Irish soil.
Explore my favorite corner of the Celtic countryside, Ireland’s West Coast. We'll spend three days on Inis Mór, then travel to the mainland to enjoy the remaining six days visiting various sites and landscapes to better understand this space and ourselves.
3 Nights and 3 Days on Inis Mór, the largest of the 3 Aran Islands
What would a modern day mystery school look like? Time to decompress from life’s fast pace, guidance to tune back into nature, alone time to remember yourself....
Inis Mór has been a seat of mysticism for thousands of years. People came from both Europe and the Middle East to learn from this rugged landscape of sea and sky. Your days here will be punctuated by moments of silence and aloneness, framed by morning meetings (to help you get your bearings) and evening gatherings (to share and sift the day's gleanings).
During this gently guided journey inward, you'll explore the craggy coastlines and ruined fortresses of this windswept island. You’ll settle into the land around you, feel into its history and lore, connect with the cycles of nature and breathe into the quietude.
5 Nights, 6 Days on the West Coast of Ireland in the Burren/Kilfenora Area
A ferry will bring us back to the mainland where we'll get settled into our next faraway home. In this portion of your journey we travel as a group, visiting magical places far from the usual tourist attractions.
Crawl through ancient ruins, visit mystical wells, and sit in secret caves used long ago by monks and hermits. Visit small towns and villages and learn the history of this geologically unique landscape.
You’ll use the skills you learned on Inis Mór to feel the deep pulse of Ireland, to root and ground into the Burren. (Plus a few surprises that I can’t wait to share with you!)
