Apply today for our May 2022 Pilgrimages to Sacred Ireland and Iona, Scotland!



Near the edge of a stream in Glendalough stands a beautiful Oak tree...

 A wise guide in Glendalough once taught a small group of us that most things we need to know about God and life can be found in nature, especially in the majestic Oaks like the one pictured above. 

The Celtic Christian author and teacher J Philip Newell calls out to ancient scholars and preachers that taught about the "two books" through which God is speaking, "the sacred text of scripture, physically small, and the grand volume of God's utterance, the universe".  In his new book, (highly recommended reading!), Sacred Earth Sacred Soul, Newell says, "A person...is not released from the study of God in that other book, the sacred text of the earth and of everything that has being. We need them both."




Who will join us... 

In pondering about who will join with us on our pilgrimages to Sacred Ireland and Iona, Scotland, we have put a lot of thought into the makeup of our group of guests.  See if you find yourself in this little list of characteristics below:

*Those who are religious, and perhaps familiar with the Celtic thread of Christianity...*

*Those who are not religious at all...*

*Those who have labored for justice and need a good rest...*

*Those who seek healing in their lives....*

*Those who have labored, especially during Covid, at vocations that involve an intensity of focus...*

*Those who are tired of screens....*

*Those who want to learn quiet ways of groundedness...*

*Those who want to experience Ireland in a unique way, or who have dreamed of visiting Iona...*

*Those who value gaining new perspectives...*

*Those who are curious about the Celtic Way...*

*Those who want to bask in beauty...*



Centuries of pilgrims have worn a path to the Abbey on Iona, Scotland....


A Prayer of St Francis

"Dear God
You created the world
to serve our needs
and to lead us to you.

Through our own unconsciousness
we have lost the beautiful relationship
we once had with the rest of creation

Help us to see
that by restoring our relationship with you
we will also renew our connection
with all your creation."


From Saint Francis of Assisi, Brother of Creation by Mirabai Starr

About Celtic Way Pilgrimages

At Culture Honey, we have discovered a deeply fulfilling spiritual thread of the Christian faith originating in Celtic Ireland and Scotland.  We have written many articles which are published on CultureHoney.com about travel to these lovely countries and the benefits of the Celtic pathway to the modern, spiritual, and holistic human experience. Our favorite influences are David Whyte, John Philip Newell, Mirabai Starrand Richard Rohr to name a few! We have experienced the beauty in these serene and sometimes rugged destinations and we have known the peace that the spiritual practices of liturgy, silence and meditation offer us. We have enjoyed and benefited greatly from learning the historical stories and significance of the places we plan to visit. Now it is our great joy to offer to share these things with you!
