The insight (Catriona) shares is something we can all benefit from. ~ Shirley MacLaine I have been deeply impressed by Catriona MacGregor for many years. Her striking kinship with the animal world and her vision of the natural world are compelling and apparent when you are in her presence. Many people carefully copy native traditions, hoping for a shamanic experience. Catriona MacGregor is a shaman. ~ Jim Gilkeson, author of "Pilgrim in Your Body: Energy Healing and Spiritual Process"

A past participant wrote "What an absolutely breathtaking experience we have all had, so honored to have walked some of the ancient lands in the world. I had the most enchanting magical time in the Orkneys. What wonderful places you took us to. Now I am away and letting the energies unfold, I can see just how strong they were and what considerable changes we are all going through, including showing how stuck in patterns I can be. It was a remarkable experience for me” E.R. Australia.   Orkney is an archipelago of islands just north of the Scottish mainland (just a 1 hour flight from Edinburgh Scotland), or a short beautiful ferry ride from Scrabsters - Scotland’s northern tip.
