Lois and Steve lead tours of Ireland based on their books:
• Celtic Journeys: A Traveler’s Guide to Ireland’s Spiritual Legacy (Citadel);
• In the House of Memory: Ancient Celtic Wisdom for Everyday Life (Dutton).
Please contact us if you would like to receive information about our tours.
In our many visits to Ireland, we’ve never yet kissed the Blarney Stone. That’s because we’ve been busy seeking out other, more interesting places, many of which are featured in our books on Ireland and Celtic spirituality.
Now, we would like to share our love of Ireland with you through our 14-day “Soul Friends” tour. Together, our group will journey through Ireland’s rich cultural and historic legacy.
If you are moved by spirituality, history, culture, literature, music, the sheer physical beauty of a place, or a fresh pint of Guinness, you will find all this and more on our upcoming Ireland tour. With our group size capped at 20 travelers, we will experience some of the most impressive and awesome sites that have made Ireland what it is and allowed it to shape world history.
Our tour is based around the Celtic concept of Soul Friends (“Anam Cara” in Gaelic). Summarized in an Irish proverb, the concept is: “Two shorten the road.” We will enjoy the amazing Emerald Isle together, and share our experiences as we travel.
