Iona Pilgrimage, St Columba Hotel, Isle of Iona, Scotland

Date(s) - 22 April 2017 - 29 April 2017


For more information please contact the St Columba Hotel at


Each day on Iona begins and ends with the rhythm of prayer and meditation together, either at the Abbey or elsewhere on the island. In the mornings John Philip Newell teaches on themes related to the sacredness of the earth, interfaith relationship, and commitment to practices of contemplation and action as the basis for transformation in our lives and world. The afternoons are given to hiking, conversation, and rest, and the early evenings to further reflection and embodiment practices of chant and meditative movement. On at least one of the days we walk the seven-mile island pilgrimage route together to pray for the journey of our lives and world. The Columba Hotel’s organic gardens, eco-friendly policies, and welcoming staff are an important part of our community life together.
