SPIRITUAL ORKNEY

Offering a range of sacred & spiritual

services to visitors, guests, seekers & pilgrims,

as well as to the communities of these magical islands ...

Suggested places to visit

Helen writes a Blog, well, it's more a series of articles than a Blog ... these links tell the story about why Helen & Mark moved to Orkney and the spiritual adventures they have been having since arriving as well as trying to communicate a little of what is so special about these gorgeous islands.

 

Most contributions start with a description of a site and then go on to a contemplation or spiritual lesson.

 

We hope these writings might encourage YOU to come to Orkney on holiday or, if you are here already, to get you off the tourist trail and into some of the special secret places ...

 

Many of these articles have been published and this is stated where applicable.
