Pilgrimage to IONA
September 8-18, 2022
You are invited to join Celtic Teacher John Philip Newell and pilgrims from around the world for a week of reflection, spiritual practice and community on the Isle of Iona in Scotland. Each day begins with silent prayer and meditation in the 13th-century Chapel of St Michael. Then mid-morning John Philip offers teachings grounded in Celtic wisdom, inviting us to further awaken to the sacredness of the earth and every human being, and calling us to translate this awareness into action in our lives and world. Lunchtime and afternoons are free for hiking, conversation, and rest. Then in the early evening we gather again, this time in the ancient Chapel of St Oran, to reflect on the themes of the day through simple chant, ritual, and prayer. Our breakfasts and evening meals are communal. And one day in the week we walk together the nine-mile pilgrimage route around the island as we pray for new beginnings in our families, communities, and nations.
The trip will be led by Cami Twilling.
There are only two rooms left (one double - must have double occupancy and one single room, both with sea views). For questions, contact: Cami Twilling
