Come to Ireland next spring. . . (new dates added!)

We have added a fourth and final set of dates for the Monk in the World: Pilgrimage to the Sacred Edge of Ireland in 2014. We love the poetry of now having one pilgrimage in each of the four Celtic seasons.

There are only a couple of spaces left for March 18-26, 2014, so please contact me to register (or to be added to the waiting list for the other dates or advance notice of 2015 dates).

Join your fellow pilgrims and monks in the world for an intimate and transformative journey to a sacred landscape. If Ireland calls to your heart we would love to share her with you.

Your 2014 registration includes a space in the Abbey online retreat – Birthing the Holy: A Celtic Spirituality Retreat for Advent (December 1-28, 2013) as part of your pilgrimage preparation.

You can find all the details here and a visual journey of what you will experience in this video:
