Every journey tells a story.  We are in a critical time of radical change, where great opportunities for spiritual growth and evolution are available to humanity. Now is the time for us women, daughters, grandmothers to tell our stories. For far to long, we have heard History for far too long. It is filled with too much fighting, war and pain. We can make a difference. We women have our story to tell. Now is the time we are being called to speak and be heard. This is our beloved planet Earth, Gaia. All life on Earth is born of woman. She calls us to rise up. We must re-write History and write Herstory.

I want to tell you a story, one of a fortuitous meeting with an extraordinary woman named Elinore Dettiger. For decades, Elinore has traveled the world working, guiding, supporting and working with women, mainly behind the scenes and at a grassroots level to bring about positive change in the world. I had the good fortune of meeting Elinore, while living in Glastonbury the summer of 1999. She had just traveled to Glastonbury from Kildare, Ireland, where she had been with the Brigidine nuns. She had been gifted a candle which had been lit from the perpetual flame of Brigid. Elinore brought the Brigid candle to Chalice Well Garden’s in Glastonbury for a special ceremony. I had the pleasure of sharing tea with her after the ceremony.

I will always remember Elinore. Such a grand, tall, beautiful, and dignified British woman, who spoke with surety and conviction when she said, “The die has been cast. And now is the time to find the place you call home, and for me that is Iona.” She said she was going to move to Iona, this tiny and sacred Isle in Scotland’s Inner Herbride.

I had first been to Iona in 1995 and I understood immediately her words, for Iona had so deeply touched my soul. It was many years later when I was visiting Iona that I asked about Elinore. I learned that, while she still had a home in Iona, she was often away, as always continuing to travel the world, guided by spirit, even in her elderly years.

Elinore Dettiger once wrote of Iona: “If you feel the call of Iona, then answer that call and make the journey to her. She is like a very old crone, rocky and barren, eternally loving and gentle, and tough and wise. She is very old. She is very holy. Iona, like all Shamballa places, Iona shall always be. Iona is a grail lite isle. Iona is deathless. On Iona one finds the rainbow which bridges Heaven and Earth.”

It is so true and while I, myself, had not known how to describe Iona, Elinore wrote it well. Iona  touches so deep into the silence of the heart and soul, and every time I have been to Iona I find it difficult to take my leave.

I look forward to sharing this sacred pilgrimage with the women called on this Scotland Holy Isle pilgrimage.
