PilgrimQuests Pilgrimage: movement of the soul


PilgrimQuests is excited to share two upcoming pilgrimages with you. Join us on our journeys to Ireland and Iona in 2022!

Why you should go

  • Now is the time. Having canceled or postponed all our pilgrimages in 2020 and 2021, we are eager to travel once again on spiritual journeys to sacred sites — the “thin places” in the words of the Celts. Our souls need this.
  • These are the places. We will journey slowly through time and space with guides who live in and around sacred sites in Ireland, the “thin places.” Iona, off the west coast of Scotland, is a “thin place” unto itself where land, sea, and sky come together in an awesome beauty that changes every minute.
  • Now is the time. The Celts understood that all that they saw was part of the divine universe and that they were also a part of it.  We need to steep our selves in this way of thinking to bring healing to ourselves and the world. The leaders of both pilgrimages will offer presentations on Celtic Spirituality, and the Divine Feminine, while exploring our responses to a world that is struggling with a pandemic, climate change, and social unrest.

We cannot predict with absolute certainty what travel conditions will be like in 2022, but all indications are that with most people in the United States, Great Britain, and Ireland vaccinated, the pandemic will subside and travel across the Atlantic will be safe and less complicated.

PilgrimQuests will do all that we can to make your pilgrimage safe as well as spiritually rewarding. For those registering at this time we will allow for full refunds until the end of this year; then, if you must cancel your reservation, you will receive a full refund minus a service charge if the space is resold. As an alternative, you may transfer your reservation to a future pilgrimage.

Please join us on an adventure that promises to be the experience of a lifetime.
