Your Pilgrim Guides
Elisha Clark Halpin
I became a believer in the power of pilgrimage while on my first journey to Ireland in 2011. That summer, I read and watched everything I could on the subject. After I finished teaching that summer, my husband and I took a journey that completely changed me and has led to new research, new creative work, new outlets, and ultimately a new way of living.
I am a dancer, choreographer, new dance filmmaker, an academic, an energy healer, somatic practitioner, yogi, and life coach focusing on sacred and creative living. I practice Reiki, experiential anatomy, and reflexology. I love all things oils, crystals, and rocks. I am a Desire Map Facilitator and adore all things Danielle LaPorte. I hold an MFA and have taught in the university system for fifteen years. I have been leading international trips since 2011. I have planned retreats stateside for twelve years. I am a wife to an amazing man who keeps me grounded while I dream and fly in my amazing life. We are raising our eight year old nephew. My academic research deals with trauma, loss, and memory and how they are stored in the body.
My creative focus has always been on working with women and this focus continues to grow and develop through my coaching work. I have a passion for helping women light or rekindle their inner flame. My gift is seeing both the big picture and the core issues when working women on life changes and healing blocks. I channel information through a sacred perspective and provide embodied tools for moving forward. I hold a Life Coaching Certificate through Renaissance Life Therapies. I am completing HeatherAsh Amara’s training to be a facilitator of her Warrior Goddess Training Program. Additionally, I am in the Moon Mná Facilitator Training Program run by Karen Ward of the Slí an Chroí Institute located in Dublin, IR. I will also complete my yoga teacher certification and Dancing Mindfulness Certificate in 2016. Big year indeed! You can find me on Facebook: Dancing Pilgrims, on Instagram as thedancingpilgrims.

I went to Ireland for the first time in 2013. It changed my life forever. It is a land of magic, transformation, and unspeakable energy. The breathtaking cliffs of stone and rolling green hills call to me. I connected more deeply to myself, my heritage, and most importantly my purpose. I have been working with Elisha for ten years and we have shared many adventures! We have traveled the world together and I had the pleasure of assisting with trips to Ireland in 2013 and 2015.
I love movement of all kinds and spent many years teaching dance and movement in a university setting. I’m a life-long certification “junkie”, and have trained in many forms of somatic practices and movement including; Laban Movement Analysis, Yoga, Reiki, and the doTERRA AromaTouch Technique. I am currently training to become a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Certified Herbologist incorporating Western, Chinese, and Ayurvedic techniques.I hold a BS in Kinesiology as well as a BA and MFA in Dance.
I am always looking for new ways to explore natural healing and wellness, and I believe in empowering others with tools to positively change their health! I regularly use essential oils, crystals, and herbs in all of my practices. I love to learn new things, and continue to explore my purpose and connection to the divine through ritual and sacred practice. I have a tiny yorkie mix named Izzy, she’s as crazy as I am and I love her to pieces. Oceans are my favorite, and I really do believe that I am a mermaid! I can’t wait to meet you on this journey! You can find me on Facebook as Megan Moore and Instagram as moorehealingandwellness.
