Traveling to a magical place, hearing the legends and history that live within the landscape, listening to what the outer world teaches and how your inner voice responds ... All without leaving your home.
Jeanne Fiorini and Margaret Jones invite you to travel with them to sacred places. Recent journeys have been taken to the ancient city of Petra in Jordan, to 5000 year-old Newgrange in Ireland, St. Bridgid's Well and Sanctuary in Kildare Ireland, the environs of mythical Scotland, to Stonehenge on England's Salisbury Plain, and to mysterious Cornwall at the western tip of England.
We have embarked upon these "live" journeys in group workshop settings over Zoom during the past few years, a time when we have not been able to physically travel to those locations. We are pleased to announce that several of these journeys have been re-recorded and are now available for purchase so that you can "make the trip" when it's convenient for you! (See list below for available recorded journeys.)
PLUS: Once purchased, the recording can be downloaded onto your computer so that you can re-visit the location whenever you wish.
Each journey uses an informative narrative combined with a slide show of images depicting the landscape, the story, and the mysteries surrounding these ancient places. We pause along the way to take time for personal reflection using a brief process similar to guided meditation. Through these pauses and by using the Tarot (or other any oracle of your choice) the traveler receives guidance and clarity about their own inner journey.
Each journey package includes a "how to prepare for the trip" information sheet, the downloadable link to the slide show/narrative presentation, and a worksheet to help clarify and ground the personal travel log of your experience.
These pilgrimages are wonderful opportunities to hear the sacred story of a place and learn how the stories resonate in our lives at this time. It’s a wonderful form and I hope they keep doing these journeys over Zoom even when it’s possible to go out into the wider world! Carol, California
I have participated in many of these travels with Jeanne and Margaret and have loved all of them. As Margaret narrates and describes our surroundings, Jeanne asks a question and then asks us to pick a tarot card to illuminate the question several times during the program. It really makes you feel part of the trip... as if you are being transformed as you travel. These journeys remind me how important it is to have meaningful travels, to experience a place in a spiritual way.
Each journey is unique; each journey is magical! Nancy, Florida
BRIGID IS AS MUCH A PART OF IRELAND AS THE STREAMS, TREES AND THE ROLLING GREEN LANDSCAPE. Both a Goddess and a living early-Christian saint share the name synonymous with care and compassion. As the Goddess Brigid, “I am also the Goddess of poetry and the arts as well as smith-crafting. All of these disciplines require dedication and skill, and, when combined with the power of three, can be transformative. We all know that the number three is sacred. Why look at nature in the sun, moon and stars. And, in Ireland, we have the land, sea and sky. Therefore, I offer them my blessing and my protection.”
Join us on a virtual journey to Ireland and the homeland of these mythic and powerful women.

We travel to Petra to walk a land which has been inhabited for over 9000 years. We learn about the Nabateans, the engineers and architects of this magnificent city. We step into the Siq, a road created by the forces of nature, leading to one of the most iconic sites in the Middle East, Petra's Treasury. Join us for a pilgrimage to a place where the dead are as much a part of the landscape as the living.
The history of Scotland is full of magic. Its legends tell of faeries, mythical beasts and witchcraft. We travel across the land and the waters of Scotland, paying homage to the witches/healers who lost their lives here.
We visit Rosslyn Chapel where it is said the Holy Grail is entombed, and then wind our way to the holy isle of Iona before ending our journey at the standing stones of Callanish.
Come along on a journey to Cornwall, England, where the legends of King Arthur --and the women who supported him -- were born. We will walk the rugged coastline, visit stone circles, enter Merlin’s cave, visit the royal castle and be transformed by the myth and magic of the land itself. Tintagel, Bodmin Moor, St. Nectan's Glen, and the witches of Boscastle await!
Stonehenge remains fixed in our psyche as a place of power and mystery. We travel to this remarkable monument at the Summer Solstice, and marvel at the mathematical and astronomical genius of its builders. But it is not only the stones that captivate us: inhabitants 5000 years gone have left their mark of the Salisbury Plain. The more we learn about Stonehenge, the more questions we have!
We travel to Brittany, France, where the land is rich with ancient history and culture. We will walk an ancient labyrinth, experience a magnificent 800-year old cathedral, investigate ley lines and the Black Madonna, stroll through magical forests, visit rows of standing stones, enter Merlin’s tomb, and be transformed by the myth and magic of the land itself.
Journey with us to North Wales, an ancient land rich in myths and legends. We will walk the rugged coastline, visit holy wells, stone circles, medieval castles, enchanted forests and long- lost islands to experience the stunning landscape once inhabited by Merlin. We conclude this pilgrimage at Bardsey Island, legendary resting place of Merlin.
Unique in its longevity and appreciation for the natural world, the Crete of the Minoans is an inspiring story of a thriving and artistic ancient (c. 3000 BCE) civilization. With its magnificent coastal scenery and archeological ruins, we walk among a culture that revered the Mother Goddess, particularly Astarte the Snake Goddess, a culture which understood that living in harmony with nature is key to a peaceful life.
This journey takes us to Ireland’s most spectacular megalithic passage tomb, older than Stonehenge and a marvel of engineering and construction. We will walk through the lush green valley along the river Boyne to meet the Celtic Goddess Danu, mother of the Tuatha De’ Danaan, the fairy folk who brought gifts from four magical cities. A site which is indelibly linked with the winter solstice, we will gather in Newgrange's central chamber to honor and celebrate the ancestors.
