Wild Retreat: A Self-Guided Pilgrimage or Retreat
Listen to the yearning for deep quiet, sweet simplicity and remembered connection. Listen to the call to return to a land of your ancestors and the wisdom and sacredness held there. Listen! And come to Ireland for your own personal retreat and adventure or allow me to share a customized pilgrimage guide for you to do on your own. I have created a simple oasis in my Irish home and would love to share it with you.
The house includes a full kitchen, large dining table and a cozy sitting area with a wood burning fire. The gorgeous lush garden is beckoned inward through the south-facing wall of windows, where you will gaze upon sacred trees, artful features and a tiny lake. Vast sky with no light pollution gives you a sense of being held by the stars and the moon and the depths of the night, a true sense of being immersed in Nature.
There is a yoga mat for your practice, offering your morning sun salutations to the awakening Irish day. And I often take my yoga practice outside to the private patio where you can enjoy your morning tea or, later, a drop of whiskey as the bats swoop through the liminal light.
The house has four bedrooms (two bedrooms with one double bed each, ensuite) downstairs and two bedrooms (one with three twin beds and one with a double bed and a twin bed) upstairs with a shared bathroom including a luscious soaking tub.
There is a washing machine onsite and a pantry well-stocked with herbs, spices and all the basics.
Upon arrival you will receive a welcome package from me including my book, Wild Irish Roots, A Seasonal Guidebook of Herbs, Ritual and Connection, and aromatherapy spray of the Irish season, depending on when you stay. The book and aromatic delights will invite you deeper into the experience of being in Ireland to connect with the land, the moon and the herbs.
