Spring Time on the Beautiful & Magical Emerald Isle
May 14 to 24, 2017
Join Rosemary Gladstar & Donna Winston for an inspirational & joyful journey to the natural, sacred and mystical sites of Ireland. Considered to be one of the ‘most beautiful countries in the world’, Ireland’s charm is legendary. From its abundance of mystical and ceremonial sites, to its ‘little people’, to the endless display of herbs and lush green countryside, Ireland invites, enchants, and plays on the imagination. We’re delighted to invite you to join us on this special journey as we explore the depths of Ireland getting to know the local flora, learning from organic herbalists and farmers, and experiencing the sacred sites. Our excellent guide & host, Christopher Gambatese, is also an herbalist. We will visit ancient stone circles on isolated hillsides, explore primordial forests with local herbalists, hear the legends of the fairy folk told by famous story tellers, and, of course, for those who fancy, listen to traditional Irish folk music with Guinness in hand at the local pubs.
