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.
From the main room, which includes a full kitchen, large dining table and a cozy sitting area, the outside is beckoned in through the south-facing wall of windows, where you will gaze upon the Burren hills and lush green fields. Harry the dog, a horse and a few cows in the neighboring fields plus the ubiquitous stone walls add to the pastoral scene and the sense of being immersed in Nature, immersed in a place you come from.
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 under the stars.
The cottage has two bedrooms including one double bed and two twin beds with a shared bathroom, sleeping up to 4 people. There is a washing machine 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 an herbal tea and aromatherapy spray of the Irish season, depending on when you stay. The book and sensual delights will invite you deeper into the experience of being in Ireland to connect with the land, the moon and the herbs.
