Summer Solstice in Ireland

Shamanic States and Sacred Sites:
A Journey for the Soul

19 - 24 June 2013

Join me for a very special spirit journey to my homeland, to ancient sacred sites of Ireland, to celebrate the Summer Solstice 2013!!

Through shamanic practices and by connecting to the energy of the land in these sacred places, we will be gently guided into deeper levels of consciousness as a means to better understand ourselves and the world we live in. This is really a life-changing experience not to be missed!

The retreat will include:

  • an introduction to ancient Ireland at the National Archaeological Museum 
  • time to shop and explore Dublin 
  • a guided tour of Newgrange, a UNESCO World Heritage site  
  • a 3 day intensive workshop led by highly experienced shamanic practitioners at Shamanism Ireland - Dunderry Park
  • ancient druid ceremony on the sacred Hill of Tara
  • shamanic ritual at Slieve na Cailleach
  • facilitated shamanic journeying and drumming circles
  • fire ceremony and fire walking
  • celtic sweatlodge

For this retreat we will be based at the Irish Centre for Shamanic Studies in Dunderry Park near Navan in the historic County Meath. It is about one hour north-west of Dublin. The house, a 200 year old Georgian residence completely restored, is surrounded by 25 acres of wooded parkland and a lake.

View a Video by Shamanism Ireland where the leader of our weekend retreat, Martin Duffy, explains Shamanism, the centre where we will stay and some of the work we will do.
