Join us on this amazing trip with our very special guests VA based herbalist, Kathleen Maier of Sacred Plant Traditions and Atlanta, GA/Dublin based herbalist Lorna Mauney-Brodek of The Herbalista Health Network for an inspirational 10 day journey to the natural, sacred and mystical sites of Ireland.
We journey to the places where we can renew our connection to the earth, source of all life. Ireland is a special place, a liminal place, where the boundaries between realms is very thin. Join us as we visit the sacred sites that channel these deep earth energies.
We will seek out stone circles on isolated hillsides, walk with local herbalists and explore the ancient forests and bioregions that only exist on this magical isle. We will weave in traditional music and storytelling, meet new plants and hear tales of ancient fairy folk, while also immersing ourselves in contemporary Irish culture much of which is still rooted in its folklore and traditions. One of the great things about this trip is we stay in two beautiful, countryside lodgings and base trips from there making the journey more restful and rooted than others.
On this trip we aim to facilitate healing through connection to the ancient, sacred places of Ireland while also exploring ways that we can practice reciprocity, giving back to the Irish environment and community. We will learn about pioneering environmental and cultural regeneration projects and how we can support them and will also get our hands dirty with some pay-it-forward medicine making evenings which will generate supplies for use in a mobile herbal medicine clinic which supports the Dublin homeless community.
The land of Éire has much to give and we wish to give back as much as we can.
On this Wild Routes Ireland journey we are blessed to have the infectious energy of two powerful women, Kathleen Maier and Lorna Mauney-Brodek.
They will be sharing their passion for cultural and environmental repair as we explore the ways Ireland can move forward in today’s climate.
We will learn how we can use herbs as a tool for not just our own individual healing but also for breaking down barriers in society and making herbal medicine available for all.
Viva la herbs!
