BRIDE OF THE ISLES
The 2020 Iona Retreat will take place from
Wednesday 22nd until Monday 27th April 2020
Iona is a truly magical and elemental place at the edge of the Western Isles of Scotland. The island is part of an archipelago
called 'The Hebrides' - the Isles of Bride!
Iona especially holds the peaceful energy of Brighde
and offers a beautiful place and space for healing and reflection.
Iona is well known for its myth, legend and folklore and
sacred places connected with Brighde,
like 'The Well of Youth' and 'St. Columba's Bay'.
During the 4 days we will visit those places to feel into
Her presence on the island.
We will also offer (ceremonial) ways to connect with
the elemental energy of the island, which can be profoundly felt
in the Iona rocks and healing stones,
the wind, the sun and the sea.
There will also be ample time and opportunity for rest
and contemplation, as well as creativity, sharing
and meditation circles to connect with each other
and the healing and inspirational energy of Bride.
The retreat is run by Marion Brigantia together
with her partner Alastair Newing.
The cost for the retreat comprises the Iona Retreat programme,
5 nights (Wed/Thur/Fri/Sat/Sun) accommodation
(2 twin rooms £375 pp for the retreat & 2 single rooms £425 pp for the retreat)
as well as (vegetarian) daily breakfasts and lunches
and dinner on 3 of the 4 days.
* There are only 6 places available on this retreat!
* Please arrive on the Island on Wednesday at the latest. Accommodation for that night is included in the price,
as well as the Sunday evening for a Monday departure.
