Upcoming 2020 Tours
5th May to 15th May – Wild Places Tour with Co-Host Thomas Easley (North Carolina) Director of the The Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine
8th of September to 18th September 2020- Deepening the Roots Tour
Join Tara De Róiste (Feakle, Co. Clare), Críostóir Gambatesa (Cork) an 11 day journey to the natural, sacred and mystical sites of Ireland.
We journey to the places where we can renew our connection to the earth, source of all life. Ireland is a special place, a liminal place, where the boundaries between realms is very thin. Join us as we visit the sacred sites that channel these deep earth energies.
We will seek out stone circles on isolated hillsides, walk with local herbalists and explore the ancient forests and bioregions that only exist on this magical isle. We will weave in traditional music and storytelling, meet new plants and hear tales of ancient fairy folk, while also immersing ourselves in contemporary Irish culture much of which is still rooted in its folklore and traditions. One of the great things about this trip is we stay in two beautiful, countryside lodgings and base trips from there making the journey more restful and rooted than others.
On this trip we aim to facilitate healing through connection to the ancient, sacred places of Ireland while also exploring ways that we can practice reciprocity, giving back to the Irish environment and community. We will learn about pioneering environmental and cultural regeneration projects and how we can support them and will also get our hands dirty with some pay-it-forward medicine making evenings which will generate supplies for use in a mobile herbal medicine clinic which supports the Dublin homeless community.
The land of Éire has much to give and we wish to give back as much as we can.
We hope you can join us on this journey to the heart of Ireland’s wild magic! 🌿
