Celtic Spirit Pilgrimage
Let the Celtic Landscape of Ireland speak to you... in a special Celtic Pilgrimage offered August 12-22, 2013. Spend 10 days in the ancient Celtic Landscape of Ireland. Breathe in its depths, touch its sacredness, smell its beauty, stand in its richness and solitude and know within yourself the call to fullness of life, sing, dance, pray and be silent. Imagine and reflect in quiet places, ancient cities and sacred sites, that will give you space to know the longings of your own heart and time to let the search for meaning shape the way you live.
Monica Brown and Hilary Musgrave will facilitate this pilgrimage that will take you to Glendalough, Newgrange, The Boyne Valley, The Hill of Tara, Jerpoint Abbey, Kildare Town, Kilkenny City and County Carlow, visiting ancient ruins and old burial sites, high crosses, holy wells, medieval cities and sacred places.
“Celtic spirituality remains like some hidden spring, a source of life and renewal for us if we choose to turn to it and learn from it…rooted in the simple belief that in all the unspectacular immediacy of daily living—both in the natural world and in daily work—God is close at hand.”
