What happened to the Newtonian Universe just when I needed it?
The fame of the Hill of Tara (“The Hill of Kings”) spreads wide and deep through Irish history. In this post, Elyn and I discuss some of the legends and myths behind this powerful place and our own experiences there.
A serendipitous encounter in Paimpont, France, sets us off in search of a holy well in the nearby village of Tréhorenteuc and a very unexpected experience.
Elyn heads to the seashore sanctuary of San Andrés de Teixido in northwestern Spain on the trail of local Galician folklore about this hard-to-reach pilgrimage shrine, perched on a cliff on the Costa da Morte.
“What is a powerful place?” Because Elyn and I write a "Powerful Places" guidebook series we are often asked the question. Our response may surprise you.
