Heart, Soul and Spirit
Join us on a journey into the beating heart of Scottish culture and a unique encounter with the soul of the wild highlands. Travel from the Edinburgh Festival to our ‘highland home’ at Eagle Rock – an award-winning, eco-luxury lodge situated in the small village and six thousand year old Sanctuary of Applecross. Day trip to the magical Isle of Skye, with its green-blue Fairy Pools, and castles drenched in historical drama. And of course a whisky distillery tour, and endless views of hills and lochs that will take your breath away!
Time, Space and the Maya
Join CCJ CEO Cilla Utne on our next CCJ Signature Series to the highlands of Guatemala, where we will learn about the Mayan ancient view of time and space through the teachings of the Mayan calendar. Through rituals and fire ceremonies we will get an understanding of the indigenous ways of living in harmony with Earth.
