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.

“If something about Ireland speaks and stirs within you…do not think twice about this one-of-a-kind experience! Bridget and Mara weaved a womb of pure magic as we traversed over land and sea. The itinerary was thoughtfully curated and the offerings were genuine and pure. Although I’ve always felt deeply connected with Nature…this retreat has bolstered my sense of knowing in an invaluable way.

I feel inspired to grow and foster deeper intimacy and reciprocity with Nature and Spirit. As an added bonus, the folks that are drawn to these retreats are absolute *gems* so if you’re looking for soulful connection with like-minded people…this is your scene! Thank you, dear Bridget and Mara, we are so grateful for these magical adventures! You two are “the real deal” and the space you hold is a precious gift. Can’t wait to join you again sometime soon!”



“I loved the Ireland retreat and had so much fun. This is the perfect trip for those who want to experience Ireland with other like-minded spiritual people. Thank you Bridget!”



“In the end, the most significant things in life are the matters of the heart. And if we are really lucky, there comes a moment in which we face the deepest wounds, with open eyes and humility, in order to heal. Being able to attend the Ireland Journey was that kind of moment for me.

I can not imagine being more fortunate… To be assisted and guided by Bridget and Mara through the sacred spirits of the Irish forests and ocean, helped me reach clarity and balance. Blessings, I am forever grateful.”



“These retreats fill you up in ways I didn’t know was possible, and leave me with a deeper understanding of myself.

Bridget creates such a loving, supportive & playful space for each of us to have our own unique experience.

The connection too with the group is extra special – you meet people you feel you’ve known for lifetimes and it’s a joy to rekindle those friendships.”
