SACRED IRELAND: The Magic of Celtic Ireland – August 16-25, 2016
There’s a magic and mystery about Ireland which is recognized by people worldwide. The varied landscape of lush green meadows, mountain ranges and spectacular coastline certainly lead one to believe that this land is blessed – it’s truly the “Land of the Goddess Eriu.” Stories of fairy folk and leprechauns make us wonder if indeed this lush land has it’s own special guardians.
There’s a feeling of spirituality held within the land that has been honored by successive generations through different belief systems over millennia. Our travels will take us back in time and into the realms of myth, legend and deep wisdom as we make a circular journey through the provinces of the Republic of Ireland visiting sites revered as sacred by Pagans and Christians for thousands of years.
This opens a doorway for each of us to discover forgotten aspects of our inner world. As various sages down the ages, including Einstein, have said “Be open to magic and it will indeed happen!” Our ancestors knew this and they are inviting you to do the same.
