Experience the magic and power of the ancient stone structures of the Emerald Isle while connecting with your ancestral streams. All the stones and all your ancestors have a story to tell or a song to sing, if we but listen. You only have to open your heart to their stories and songs. And, what better time of the year to connect with Ancestors than Samhain.

This program is offered to anyone who has an interest in the power and magic of the ancient stone structures of Neolithic Ireland; and wish to connect in a healing way with their ancestral streams.


Prophecies of many indigenous traditions speak of the dawn of this new era as a time when the medicines of the four directions will once again come together – Yellow Medicine, Red Medicine, Black Medicine and White Medicine – and humanity and all our relations will be healed and move forward into the new way. Notice that these prophecies do not just speak about the current indigenous peoples of the world, but of all the world. Our beloved teachers from these indigenous traditions are not teaching us to become them, for we come from the lineages of White Medicine. Rather, they are teaching us the tools to connect to the healing energies that course through our DNA that flow down the ancestral stream from our indigenous ancestors.


Make this, the autumn of 2024, your time to find your unique path that emanates from your ancestors through the blood that pumps through your heart and to connect with their magic and then offer your contribution to The New Earth. Within the natural sanctuary of the emerald hills of Ireland, you will discover a sacred place where your deepest needs, values and passions, flowing from your ancestors, can speak and allow Mother Earth to reach and teach you. History of the west has all but erased our connections with our ancestors, leaving us untethered and disconnected from Mother Earth. Our ancestors are what anchors and grounds us. Throughout this journey you will be recharged, enlightened and educated, ready to put your creativity to work to make a positive change in the flow of healing energies from the healing wisdom of your indigenous ancestors. By combining old traditions with modern ways, we can create a healthier relationship with our ancestors.


This program is offered to anyone who has an interest in the power and magic of the ancient stone structures of Neolithic Ireland; and wish to connect in a healing way with their ancestral streams. It is also open to those who simply want to experience the deep healing environment of the emerald hills of Ireland.
