Celtic Journeys is based in Ireland and offers a soul journey that is nourishing, inspiring and authentic. We are here to introduce you to the wonders of the Celtic Tradition and to awaken a connection to this ancient yet living world.

Ritual - Life's Honouring
Ritual has a mystery within it; and the more we touch the mystery without dissecting it the deeper it becomes. Celtic Journeys honours ritual's sacredness. "How complex the subject of ritual is, how difficult its communication, how necessary the practice of ritual is to its understanding." -- Tom Driver.
Our longing for ritual is deep and vital to our soul. It incorporates embracing all of life, that is its gift. It fully embraces and supports the darkness as it does the light...
