Banyen's Description: 

Leprechaun linguist Tanis Helliwell’s Pilgrimage with the Leprechauns is a romp to the sacred sites of Ireland accompanied by a leprechaun who is helping her and her thirty fellow pilgrims face their blind spots. They have a topsy-turvy encounter with the mischievous, wise humour that the Irish call “The Craic.”

The Craic cannot be pinned down and, when you try to do so, it joggles you out of your comfort zone and laughs at you. It is both the great cosmic joke and cosmic joker. The Craic is what lies between the “this” and the “that.” I often think of it as the crack—Craic—between the worlds, between the three-dimensional reality, in which humans spend their waking hours, and other dimensions. The Craic is magic. The Craic is unpredictable and certainly not dependable. It comes, whenever it wants, and does, whatever it can, to move us into deeper knowing and truth. The only approach a sane person can take towards the Craic is to surrender to it, as any resistance is futile.  —from the Preface

In addition to being an amusing story, Helliwell’s book is full of information about nature spirits or elementals, as they like to call themselves. The trolls, elves, goblins, and brownies are as real for the reader as the various humans whom they partner. For anyone planning a trip to the sacred sites of Ireland, or to Ireland itself for that matter, this book abounds in nuggets as precious as the pot of gold that the Leprechaun holds at the end of the rainbow.

Tanis Helliwell is the founder of the International Institute for Transformation and author of Summer with the Leprechauns, Take Your Soul to Work, and the poetry collection Embraced by Love. She has led tours to sacred sites of the world for over 20 years. Visit her website www.tanishelliwell.com.
