About the event

Wherever you find yourself on the physiological journey of the age/stage of menopause, this pilgrimage will give you an opportunity to gather the gold of your experience and claim the wisdom of your years. In this transformational pilgrimage, you will be guided to embody your own expression of the Wise Woman and participate in a Croning Ceremony to celebrate your emergence. 

Ireland is a magical and mysterious land full of ancient and sacred sites and thin places that offer transformational energies in support of women’s journeys into their inner wisdom. Join Mary Francis on a guided tour of seven of these sacred sites and encounter the Divine Feminine in Her many forms. Immerse yourself in this transformative process of the Wise Woman Emerging in the verdant Irish countryside and along the Wild Atlantic Way during the thin time of the Autumnal Equinox. 

In addition to these sacred sites, there will be time to explore the lovely town of Sligo along the Garavoge River for local food, music and shopping. Accommodations for the week will be at The Sea Barn, located by the sea in Ballymulderry, Co. Sligo on the Wild Atlantic Way.
