June 15-18th, 2023

SOLD OUT – Email me to be placed on the waiting list

Ireland is a place to come home to your own emerald heart…

Ireland holds a very specific elemental heart frequency of ancient Earth templates that were seeded long ago by races of multi-dimensional beings called the Tuatha Dé Danann.

In this time of evolving Earth, Ireland plays a crucial role in the activation and anchoring of this frequency in the heart of humanity.

Opening and engaging with the emerald heart energy, that is accessible in the dynamic landscape of Ireland, is going back to a primordial place of ancient wisdom.

It can reawaken and open access to the remembrance of that ancient wisdom seeded within our own DNA from epochs of time where elemental reverence was inherent.  

Ireland serves as a bridge to that reconnection process through the potency of her intact folk rituals connected to the feminine, and her evocative mythology. 

Many of us are searching for our deeper roots and a true connection to place in order to ease the sense of displacement… to reconnect with the Motherland, within and without.  

This retreat is designed to activate true connection with the Earth, by being present with her, and igniting the remembrance of our soul purpose on this planet.
