Pilgrimages

Sacred Journeys

Amantha regularly organises Sacred Journeys of Ireland for women only, mixed, and couple groups. Experiencing ancient Irish sites of deep and powerful significance, through intention and ritual, allows us to move within to that place of communion.

Reconnecting to the Land reconnects us to ourselves. Being held by the Land, by the deep love of the Cailleach in her various faces, allows awareness, awakening, deep healing and releasing.

Women Only Groups

The group unfailingly finds its own harmonious direction; if there is a group that wants to do more inner work then that is what we follow and if the group feels the call to go to more sites then this is the route we take.

Amantha has focused the majority of these pilgrimages just for women as she finds this allows us to go much deeper. Women feel safer with other women. Most importantly, it also evokes the ancient sisterhood, where we can be there for each other, where we can grieve together, we can laugh together, we can hold each other in a place of safety. The women are encouraged to move through the archetypes of the Goddesses supported by the deep feminine energy in Ireland.

Reconnecting

As we reconnect with the Land and Her many sacred places, we move instinctively into re-membering, through the archetypes, and the myths and legends of the Land. This can also draw forth in women, aspects of the shadow – the dark Goddess and the Wild Woman as well as the Child, Mother and Crone aspects. Through Pilgrimage these aspects can be invoked just by attuning with the Land and the inner work we share together.

We come in song, in ceremony, and at times, in silence as we begin to open to those aspects of Her nature which brings us to those aspects of ourselves.

Sacred Sites

Some of the sites we go to are places that have always been known as places of sacredness in Ireland and some are interwoven within the Land, calling to us to connect again with Her nature. We go to stone circles, sacred wells, and dolmens, specific rivers and lakes abounding in stories and myths. When we go to these places, Amantha tells the stories of the Land, as the Land knows them, as the Stone People hold them in these places, and that invokes in us our memories, for the stories of the Land are there to remind us.

‘‘I have been facilitating Pilgrimages since 1995 and it’s always been a magical, sacred and playful experience. We come together as women and through the experiences we move on as Sisters, changed and awakened.

The Pilgrimage is often a respite from the women’s daily lives, and we have to honour those needs for relaxation, play and, of course, there is always time for retail therapy!”

Bealtaine Pilgrimage – 1 Space Available

Sunday 23rd April – Wednesday 3rd May 2023

Itinerary in slideshow below

To Walk in Pilgrimage

…to hear the call and our soul’s response. To walk awhile in consciousness. To move into a place of union with the Divine presence of the Ancient Irish Goddesses of our sacred land. To fill the ache that lies within. An ancient calling that goes beyond time and space.

As part of our journey upon the Way, we will gather the threads and weave ourselves whole: We will sing and chant, we will dance and move and there will be times when we will hold the silence and bear witness. For we come together to hear the pulse of Her nature and the beat of Her Heart through the inner and outer landscapes of Herself/ourselves.

Each Sacred place we attune to along the way offers us the opportunity for activations.
