A Celtic Pilgrimage to Iona & Lindisfarne English

junio 2 - junio 15, 2019

You are invited to join Academy Faculty, Loyd Allen, and Academy Retreat Leader, Pat Luna, on a Celtic pilgrimage to the sacred isles of Iona and Lindisfarne as well as other associated Celtic holy sites. This journey will pay particular attention to pace, practice, and purpose. As pilgrims, we journey to sacred places seeking transformation of the inner landscape of our souls. It is our hope that we will leave homes to find our true Home and return renewed with “bliss-bestowing hands.”   

Download a brochure below with full itinerary details and pricing.
