Columcille Megalith Park.

Columcille Megalith Park and Celtic Art Center

An amazingly peaceful and serene place for meditation and reflection. It is as stunning covered in snow as it is on a green summer day. Sometimes you can even see the owner about, who is more than happy to share his story and inspiration for Columcille. A favorite spot in the Lehigh Valley!

Columcille Megalith Park and Celtic Art Center

Columcille Megalith Park and Celtic Art Center, an outdoor sanctuary, is open for your "personal spirit journey." It was inspired by the Isle of Iona off the coast of Scotland. Its owners describe it as a "sacred space for quiet meditation, protected under conservation easement with the Heritage Conservancy. The park adjoins the residence of its co-founders."

The day I visited was beautiful. I took a walk through the grounds and admired the beauty of the setting and the different monoliths. There is a scaled-down Stonehenge where I saw a women leaning against one large stone and meditating.

Stonehenge replicaApparently, there are weddings in the chapel and other events such as Winter Solstice. The owner told me that Halloween is the Celtic New Year, and an event was planned for the evening I was there, which was October 31. The chapel was getting a replacement for its cedar shingle roof with 100 year old slate. There is also an interesting stone building referred to as the tower.

The whole experience was very serene and comforting.

We also draw comfort and spiritual energy from the great stone megaliths of America.... as long as they are close to the road.
