Muse Juice Tour - Ireland
It’s not all rainbows and pots of gold and leprechauns. When you think about Ireland, your heart shimmers like fairy wings. Celtic legends, myth and folklore move you to a place that is deep and wordless. The saturated greens of the cliffs and moors sing in your veins. You don’t know why, but you long to stand on Ireland’s shores and feel the pulse of the land, to discover its living poetry.
You are part of that poetry. “Anam Cara” means “soul friend” in Gaelic, and walking the shores of Ireland awakens an ancient friendship with your own soul. You may greet yourself in ways you have never greeted yourself before: awake, alive, vital, tingling with possibility and a sense of your own belonging.
Join me for ten soul stirring days on the emerald isle and discover why the heart chakra is GREEN (rather than red.)
Our first seven days we’ll hop on a comfy small touring van with a few other folks and join a tour moving through the south and west of Ireland. This way we get to see some of the most beautiful landscape without having to meet train schedules or work around loud, noisy buses.
We’ll visit the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands, and the lively city of Galway. Then we’ll hop down south and visit a working sheep farm. We’ll see the ancient bee huts of Slea Head. Then spend a day on the dazzling Dingle peninsula. We’ll take a horse and buggy ride around the Muckross Gardens and visit Kerry, Cork and Killarney. We’ll stay in BnBs, small inns and and maybe even a castle. Don’t put it past me… surprises abound!
Our last few days will be spent exploring the west of Ireland, taking walks on the shore and spending time with the locals. We’ll be dancing to the pipes and drums of live music, drinking a pint with our new friends, sharing stories and lore with the Celtic folk. We’ll make a pilgrimage to St. Brigid’s well. In Irish folklore, Brigid and her sisters also named Brigid are a triple Goddess and she is the goddess of higher ground, higher learning, and higher consciousness. She is the patron goddess of the Druids and visible signs of Druid language and pagan worship are still seen in the well.
