Blessed be the longing that brought you here
And quickens your soul with wonder.

May you have the courage to listen to the voice of desire
That disturbs you when you have settled for something safe.

May you have the wisdom to enter generously into your own unease
To discover the new direction your longing wants you to take.

May the forms of your belonging – in love, creativity, and friendship – 
Be equal to the grandeur and call of your soul.

May you come to accept your longing as divine urgency.
May you know the urgency with which God longs for you.

John O’Donohue

 Two soul food workshop series beginning this fall. 

Sacred Wisdom. Living a life that feeds your soul.
E-flyer: Sacred Wisdom 2016-2017

We didn’t come to this life to be human doings rushing around at warp speed, our lives very full but not very fulfilling. We came to this life to be human beings of body, mind, and spirit rooted in clear intention and meaningful purpose. It is a balance, harmony, and knowing we hold within us. It is the longing and call of our soul.     ···     There is also a call from the ancestors to awaken the power and potential of spiritual wisdom. For ourselves, our families and communities, and our planet. We welcome the ancestral wisdom and ancient cosmology of Ireland to ground and guide this journey of coming home to ourselves. For claiming the habit of soul.    ···     These workshops are created in alignment with the teachings of the Tuatha Dé. A copy of A Legacy of Wisdom: The Genius, Power, and Possibility of Ireland’s Indigenous Spiritual Heritage will be provided to participants.


Brigit’s Fire. A sacred sisterhood.
E-flyer: Brigit’s Fire 2016-2017

We aspire to live in the beauty, grace, and power of our full potential. We hold an inner knowing that this is only possible when we nurture this light in ourselves and each other. If you are called to a gracious space with sisters for this nurturing we invite you to Brigit’s Fire. In this monthly gathering we will share from the heart and the soul and drink deeply from our well of women’s wisdom and come together in a union of sisterhood.

Attending each month to our individual journeys, there will be hospitality for this exploration through a weaving of Earth wisdom, Women’s wisdom, and ancient traditions. Through stories and song, legend and lore, guided journeys and dance, craft and journaling we will celebrate and unfold our own mythical journeys. We will awaken to who we truly are because we choose to.

  1. I would love to have you send me a daily itinerary for your june and september trips even though I understand they are full. Also, could you puttee on a list for 2018 trips please?

    • Absolutely. A copy of the book is actually included in the tour price. We generally give them at the beginning of the tour. But I will mail yours in the next day or so.

      huge hugs!

  2. By the way, it has taken me several hours to arrive a this site. Starting with a facebook post about Jack Roberts and the SheelaNaGig… Searching for Sacred Wisdom workshops led me to Native American Shamanism workshops. ;~{ Finding Bandia Design wasn’t easy, either. But here I am after many detours.

  3. Would really like to know WHERE your workshops are held. Probably far far from the central California coast. I’m pondering registering for one of the 2015 trips.. I would probably arrive early and stay after.

    • Hello. Thank you so much for your interest. The workshops are held just a bit north of you in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. I would love to talk with you about the workshops or one of the tours. Right now the tours advertised are closed…but I have many folks on a list for future trips. Would love to add your name…as we are already considering future dates. Beannacht.
