Celtic Pilgrimages to the Homeland

Step back in time with us to the land that holds the ancient Celtic story deep within its landscapes, ruins, stories, and perhaps most importantly, in the heart of its people. 



The west coast of Ireland, because it was out of the reach of the Roman Empire, maintained many pre-Christian understandings of our vital relationship with Earth, the cycles of Nature, and the interplay of our lives with the unseen world of the Spirit. Christians allowed these perspectives to live on in their perspective of God’s love, participation in the union with Christ in and through Nature, and beliefs that the sacred is available in all activities of daily life and relationships.


Join Dr. Kirk Webb for learning and discussion about the roots of Celtic Spirituality, times of prayer and spiritual practice, and an exploration of the land and history that holds the foundations of Celtic Christianity. The pilgrimage also provides many moments for silent contemplation, rest, and enjoyment of the natural wonders of the island and the wild Atlantic ocean.
