Sacred Pilgrimage to Ireland - Spring '19 - Becca Piastrelli

Many of us are hearing the call to return to sacred lands.


To gather together and harvest ancient wisdom planted long ago by those who came before us.

Pilgrimage: a journey made to some sacred place as an act of devotion

We'll gather during the sun festival of Bealtaine as we greet the season of light

on the sacred green lands of Éiru, the ancient Celtic goddess of this land

This is your opportunity to make space and listen to the whispers of your soul and connect with the wisdom of your ancestors - the resilient ones who came before you.


Supported by a sisterhood, you'll remember how to be held and open up courageously to who you truly are so you show up with generosity and a fierce heart.

"Becca is a beautiful space holder for sisterhood. She creates the environment where it is safe to go deep. She attracts the most amazing circle of women. The women that I traveled to Ireland with were smart, kind, generous and powerful. Becca carefully crafted a trip to help us connect deeply with the land and to connect more deeply within. While we were all called to the sacred lands of Ireland for different reasons; the alchemy of us all together and the experience we had on the land is something that I will hold close to my heart for the rest of this lifetime. I am so excited for the women who will embark on future pilgrimages with Becca."


It is said that, when the time comes, Ireland calls to you in your dreams

- beckoning you to her soft green hills and ancient stones.

It happened to me a few years ago. I awoke one morning with a deep knowing that I was meant to return there (even though I had never been!) and connect with the ancestors who once walked and tended to that land. I went on my own personal pilgrimage over the autumn equinox, and it was a powerful experience that had me feeling as old as the stones and as wise as the trees. I knew I must return, bringing with me a group of wise and willing women.

During our time together, we’ll journey to sacred sites to learn about and receive healing from keepers of Celtic ancestral wisdom. This is such a unique opportunity - to be in Ireland to greet the season of rebirth, participate in ancient rites, and connect to the land in such an intimate and powerful way.

"It is difficult to put into words my experience of being on retreat with Becca because it would not actually describe its power but I will do my best. Being there was a crazy, powerful, intimate, supportive, grounding, and healing experience.  I left feeling more connected to myself and more trusting of my own intuition because I was able to let go of expectations I had on myself. I was able to allow the land and Becca to hold me in all of the beliefs that were holding me back from being more of me. I was able to ask for what I wanted and needed without needing permission to do so. That in itself was empowering. She brought in other teachers and planned the coolest experiences, people and places I would have never met or done on my own. It felt special, so incredibly special.  She is a special soul and she creates special experiences."


When you walk on the land (especially one your ancestors once walked on), you’ll experience a deep sense of connection.

The green hills and stone cairns will whisper their secrets, unearthing an inner truth that feels like coming home.

We’ll circle in a brave, supportive, and loving space, working to heal the ways in which we hide from each other and ourselves. We will go deep, held by the soft and wise land around us, to cultivate true alignment with our highest visions of ourselves and the world.

I’ll be guiding you on your journey


inviting you to work with your hands, the plants and flowers, and your connection to the natural world to cultivate beauty and meaning. I’ll help you unearth a sense of belonging that goes beyond this lifetime. This is my magic.

"The experience of joy and connectedness these pictures show represent the very surface of my experience in Ireland. Becca has skill and a natural ability to bring safety, self awareness, and sisterly feelings into her gatherings. In fact, I feel she has been gifted with a remarkable ability to share herself, and open the hearts of other women, enabling them to move into the powerful experience of sisterhood. If you have an opportunity to participate with Becca in any setting, do yourself a favor and do it! The beauty of it will remain for years to come."


Where We’ll Stay


We’ll be staying at a gorgeous, 180-acre Georgian estate (built in the early 1700s for a Quaker family and passed down through the female line) in county Kildare, surrounded by lush flower, vegetable, and woodland gardens with beautiful park and farmland walks. It’s just an hour drive from Dublin city, but feels worlds away with its green vistas, farmlands, sleepy nearby villages, and organic gardens. You will have your own bed in either a shared or private room in one of the beautiful homes on the estate. We’ll be dining on nourishing, locally-grown organic food made by the in-house chef (who will absolutely cater to your dietary preferences and restrictions).

We’ll circle together in a private gathering space, creating a cozy and sacred container for us to dive deeply into the personal and sisterhood work we’ll be doing together. With plenty of spaciousness to spread out on the property, you’ll be able to take space for yourself when you need some privacy and down time. You can go on a walk through the gardens for some journaling, find a cozy nook by the fire to read or meditate, or take a walk with a new sister friend to chat about what’s on your hearts.

I’ve dedicated my life and work to supporting womxn in experiencing a deep sense of belonging through connecting with the cycles of nature, ancestral wisdom, working with their hands, and being in meaningful sacredhood. I’m here to hold the most exquisite space for your retreat experience, with the intention to inspire you to come closer home to yourself, connect with you on a deep level, guide you into potent ritual space, and keeping it real with belly laughs and dance parties. I’m at your back supporting you in stepping into your authentic, wisest self, while cultivating beautiful sisterhood along the way.

Karen Ward is the resident Celtic and Druidic wisdom keeper who will be leading ceremonies and sharing sacred feminine rites at sacred sites on the land. She is a feisty Irish woman, proud of her Dublin roots and honoured to live on the sacred island of Ireland. She is a Shamanic Facilitator trained in the Celtic Lineage and Druidic traditions. Karen received a strong destiny call to create Moon Mná Women’s Celtic Circles (pronounced ‘meh-naw’ Gaelic for women) on the sacred Hill of Tara. Her foremothers are from Kildare, a place dear to her soul. When asked what her dream is for our time together Karen replied: “I journeyed to listen and open myself to holding our Circle together with the pure power of the mighty cauldron that is my heart. This sacred land is calling to your Celtic soul and my desire is to reveal the fullness of Love in every moment with our sacred work together.”

"Oh my dearest, GO TO IRELAND! I cannot begin to describe the experience of being on a pilgrimage in the company of other women who are also on a journey. The entire week, I felt so loved. So cared for. Nourished — in body, soul and spirit. There was so much laughter. So many hugs. And plenty of tears — both of sorrow and of joy. We joked that it was #17millionyearslater but really, that’s how it is in Ireland — timeless. The land is ancient. Lush. Magical. I made deep connections with other women that will last a lifetime. A deep connection to the land of my ancestors. A deeper connection with the women who came before me. And myself. I came back from Ireland feeling stronger, more powerful, more deeply connected to myself, these women, and the world."


Frequently Asked Questions


Who can attend this retreat? 

This retreat is for open-hearted, soulful womxn who are curious about stepping into a more earth-aligned path and are open to the great mysteries held in ancient lands. We will form a close circle with the intention of supporting and encouraging each other, reflecting each other's highest vision of themselves, and holding each other through powerful and deep moments of transformation. We will be leaning into the feminine archetypes of Celtic myth, so the experience will likely feel more gendered for folks who identify as fluid and are wondering how the space will feel for them.

What sort of weather should I plan/pack for?

Ireland is known to experience all 4 seasons in a single day. We will be there as spring is awakening in the land, so plan to bring layers for chilly mornings and perhaps some afternoon sunshine. As we get closer to our journey, it'll be easier to know what the weather will be.

What sorts of excursions will we be going on? 

We will be traveling to several different sacred sites throughout the week - all within a 60-90 minute bus ride. At each of these sacred sites, we will be walking the land, listening to its whispers and receiving ancient feminine rites and rituals from our resident Celtic wisdom keeper, Karen Ward. The land is soft, but hilly, so sturdy shoes are a must. There will be one walk up a hill (not too steep or long, but I will certainly take my time with it) and we will honor whatever pace or needs your body requires.

Will I have downtime to relax, reflect, and introvert? 

We will absolutely schedule in free time to walk in the gardens, journal by the fire, nap, and chat with a new sister throughout our time together. I know from personal experience that these are the moments when we can reflect and integrate what we are experiencing in joyful rest. Spaciousness will be woven in throughout the week.

What is your cancellation policy?

I am unable to offer any refunds for this retreat, so please be 100% sure you are in when you enroll. However, if you are able to find someone to take your spot, I will happily transfer your ticket to them.

I want to go, but am resistant to the money part. 

I've crafted an experience that will have you feeling deeply held and nourished all throughout a week of powerful transformation and ancestral connection. This is why I've priced it the way I have. If you cannot make it work, then please do not put yourself in any financial distress and trust that your time to join us is coming. But if you know, deep down, that your resistance really isn't about the money and is more about taking time for yourself (away from the family, inbox, and crazy hustle of life), giving yourself the gift of something you've truly always wanted, or concern about what people will think of you...remember that you are in charge of how you spend this one wild and precious life. And, we do have a payment plan.
