Explore the true nature of the Burren through a guided spiritual tour of the Burren in County Clare and County Galwy with local author Jackie Queally. If you want to explore the entire region of the Burren it would take you several days, as the Burren is a wild region traversed by minor, twisting roads that lead nowhere in particular! In order to get a true flavour of the Burren we select a range of experiences and sites for you, depending on where you are staying and your particular interests. Jackie can come to meet you at your accommodation and accompany you on the tour, or meet at the normal pick up points of Kinvara or Gort. Price will vary slightly according to distances involved. Contact Earthwise in the first instance.
To help you connect with the earth energies of the Burren our spiritual tour of the Burren typically includes an opportunity to try your hand at using dowsing rods, so you can have some fun learning to dowse at sites.
Jackie can offer sound therapy at a holy well and other quiet sites. The gong and drum both helps to expand your consciousness and enhances your experience of the nature energies on site. It also is great at bringing you more fully present in the moment.
There are ley lines in the Burren that form a significant earth grid, as researched in Jackie’s much appreciated book Spirit of the Burren. We visit a range of prehistoric monuments, ancient settlements and places associated with legends of the De Danaan, Fionn MacCool and enigmatic Christian hermetics and early saints who underwent spiritual travel, many of which are covered in http://www.earthwise.me/shop/ on the Burren. All places will be selected according to your fitness levels for walking, your preferred time spent in car travelling and your budget.
Invariably there are places that we pass en route that cater more for the sightseeing tourist than the less visible spots we visit, and if you need to stop at any of these this can be arranged. If at all possible we recommend you do these on another day to maximize your time spent in the natural beauty and serenity of the Burren, an international geopark.
Don’t forget to buy the excellent full colour/GPS guide to the Burren available in our shop. The Burren Trails is a 170 page unique guide to the Burren and Burren Lowlands. Audio files to accompany it are optional.
