The Poetry of Pilgrimage


This September BRF are publishing my Poetry of Pilgrimage. This book is based on the pilgrimages I have co-led with Russ Parker to Ireland and Britain over the last 12 years. The book contains 23 poems that I wrote when I visited some of the many Celtic sites we have visited. Alongside the poems are some notes explaining the location, telling the story of the saint, and sharing my experience. There are also photos, and questions for reflection.

A couple of endorsements:

I am so glad this book has come to light having experienced some of the poems with Michael on pilgrimage in Ireland. They are beautifully crafted, deeply spiritual and very resonant with place.

Michael has spent many years leading wonderful and successful pilgrimages to Celtic sites around Britain and Ireland, and this book is an awe inspiring culmination of the love, study, and depth of soul that he puts into those journeys.
