Join Gillian Schoemaker and Alan Potter on the Ireland Odyssey Journey, tracing the threads of the spiritual history of Ireland: a rich and profound story dating back many thousands of years. We’ll see ancient megalithic sites, castles, monastic settlements, vibrant Dublin, a variety of landscapes, charming towns and villages, traditional music and song, and much, much more.

  • An unforgettable journey awaits, in the company of like-minded people with an interest in an anthroposophical perspective.
  • Most mornings, we will meet together to prepare for the events of the day. In the evenings, we may gather to share impressions and experiences.
  • At many of the sites, we will explore the spirit of place though song and story, eurythmy,
    and informal talks with Gillian and Alan.
  • We will endeavor to experience our Odyssey in the light of earth-healing and gratitude in these special places where the worlds of humanity and spirit were closer than today.
  • There will be time for ponderings and wanderings too!
  • Time to enjoy the landscape and soul-scape of Ireland – the beautiful interplay of light, sea, mountains and sky. And sunshine – and maybe even some rain! And rainbows!
