BraveSoul Ireland

 

  • Reflect on where you’ve come from, where you are, and where you want to go
  • Quiet your busy mind, awaken your soul and uncover your intuition
  • Tap into your abundance of creativity and clarity that currently lies dormant inside of you
  • Decode the difference between your noisy mind and the subtle whisper of your soul
  • Experience the beauty and wonder of the west coast of Ireland, all the while discovering yourself in a deeper way than you ever imagined.

“Success is manufactured in the mind while happiness is cultivated in the soul.”

~ Philip McKernan

Discover Ireland. Uncover You.

Imagine a week in a remote fishing village on the rugged, majestic and awe-inspiring west coast of Ireland.

Walk – explore green roads that were built 5000 years ago and let the inspiration of this magical landscape penetrate your soul. Allow the music to ignite your spirit and draw you away from your busy mind.

Laugh – toast the locals in the local pub even if you have no idea what they are saying. Hear the roar of the wild Atlantic Ocean and listen to the whisper from your soul that has the clarity you seek. Ask yourself the questions that you might be avoiding and get the answers that you have been needing.

Rest – get grounded, connect again and remember what it feels like to just be. Let the pressure and expectations subside and allow yourself the freedom to explore what has eluded you to date.

Breathe – uncover more of who you really are and leave with a calmness that has not been present in your life or soul for a while. Uncover or rediscover the magic of Intuition.

Know – let go of what you want and create a vision of who you want to be.

Put a value on yourself and give yourself the gift of a magical week in Ireland with Philip.

Discover Ireland. Uncover You.





The experience will be held in the heart of the Burren landscape in County Clare on Ireland’s west coast. Breathtaking landscape drenched in history with human-made structures dating back 5,600 years, before the Pyramids were even an idea!

We will be staying in a tiny village on the rugged coastline where we will mingle with the locals. Philip’s ancestors have lived in County Clare for hundreds of years and it is the place Philip has come for inspiration all of his life.

This experience takes place in the tiny village of Ballyvaughan on the west coast of County Clare. We come here for the inspirational environment, the culture and to disconnect from the noise of the world. BraveSoul is not a tour of Ireland. We will, however, be taking in some of the most stunning sites and landscapes of this magical country that reside off the beaten tourist route.

Here is a little taste of one location where we will hike:

Itinerary

BraveSoul is a time to take space, connect with yourself and unlock your Soulset. There will be sessions with Philip, stunning hikes as well as reflective time alone. Philip will guide you through a week of self-discovery and take you to a place where you will be more in touch with your Soulset. Only Philip knows the exact itinerary, so make sure you come with an open mind, and be ready for “surprises” during your 7-day experience.

The Work

While the experiences and inspiring location all add to the journey we are there to do some really powerful work. The work we will be doing has been carefully crafted and woven into the overall experience to unlock clarity from within. All the photos, laughs and memories are a bonus, but it is the ‘Soulset’ you will bring home that is the real magic.

The experiences we add to the journey are all designed to support you in getting grounded and in touch with the deeper creative imagination that often lies dormant in our busy lives.

BraveSoul Changed My Life!

What did the week in Ireland - BraveSoul mean to me? I've been trying to think what to write, and although some days I don't feel as though much has changed, when I take a moment to think about it, everything has changed, because my perspective on my life has completely changed. When I arrived in Ireland I did not feel like I had a future. I was consumed with thoughts of failure, shame, embarrassment and regret. I felt like my life was over, and I really did think I would be alone forever. I had some very dark, dark days and dark thoughts. I tried multiple personal support counseling sessions through work. I was reading book after book. After which, some very good friends recommended I be open to exploring some work with you. I don't know what to say, except I think Ireland saved my life. Ireland gave me the hope, inspiration and courage to believe in me. To believe, truly believe, that I'm worth more and deserve more. I arrived thinking my life was over, and I returned thinking what a gift, my life is just beginning. I deserve more. I feel like I have been set free. I cannot explain it to friends and family, although I try, I don't feel they understand. But I have a feeling, a fire inside of me, and this space, that never existed before and it feels like this little gem of hope and happiness I have not had in a long time. I can feel the shifts, and I feel empowered. Living and experiencing my own story in Ireland, was the only thing that has given me hope. I feel a gratitude and love to you that I've never felt before. It was magical. It was stunning. It was brilliant. It was exactly what you said it would be. I wasn't sure the first few days if I was in the right place, but you allowed me to continue and I'll never forget what transpired for me. I'll never be the same. And that's a pretty awesome place to be.

Truly a mind blowing experience

Philip, it was truly a mind blowing experience. Your ability to create a space where people can really get deep and feel comfortable doing so was unbelievable to me. Anyone who's not absolutely confident they're doing what they should be doing, or know that they're somehow not playing at the level they should NEED to work with you. There is no one I would give a higher endorsement to you on this planet, and I have earned the right to say that now that I've done intensive work with you. Thank you for your courage to follow your truth north star, and I love you for the impact you've had on me and that you're committed to in the world.

BraveSoul has had a HUGE impact on my life!

My Irish adventure is never far from my thoughts. I started the BraveSoul week feeling extremely vulnerable, annoyed, nervous, emotional, self conscious, and basically was totally out of my comfort zone. Its been such a long time since I have experienced all of these emotions, and all in one week! I was there because it was my choice, and knew I had to deal with whatever was holding me back in my life. I had to bring it out, clarify what it is, deal with it and move on. With each day, I felt a sense of enlightenment and freedom, I now know I was creating space within myself to feel, and be truthful. I had no idea that there were other people out there feeling the same way as I did, lost, alone, empty, and odd! The group made me feel like I belonged, I was safe, and everyone truly cared about me. I was excited to see what each day would bring. The surprises you had for us were truly awesome, and I totally love being surprised, you made me feel like a child again! 🙂 I had so much fun playing the gaelic football, hurling, and later, the Irish dancing. I laughed more that week, than I have done this whole year! Listening and feeling the music each evening was such pure joy for me. The pubs....well what can I say! haha Bloody great crack! The hikes really moved me, and I felt very connected, out there in the middle of the countryside. Your choice of music was outstanding, it went right through my soul. Some pieces always make my heart ache, and I feel a real sense of sorrow and loss, and others made me feel light and joyful. I felt like I was letting go, and I completely trusted you to guide me in the right direction. It was like you were opening doors for me, with your questions, and it was up to me whether I went in, or left them closed. I allowed myself to open each one, and I dealt with whatever came up, honestly, and I survived! Towards the end of our hike of the Cliffs of Moher, I started to feel such peace come over me, and my heart felt so much lighter. I actually thought to myself, "wow" I really do have the most incredible life, I have complete freedom to do whatever my heart desires, and I am making myself more aware of being grateful for my life, each day. I cant wait to see what else comes up, seriously, I am feeling excited again about living. I knew from that first day I met you that you would make a huge impact in my life, and our BraveSoul journey together was that! I completely believe in you, and enjoy being connected to you, and what you believe in. My heart overflows with love when I think about each person in our BraveSoul group, and I know I am so lucky to have been a part of this journey. I FELT true enlightenment, a sense of freedom, pure joy, and utter peace. It was an inspiring and intuitive journey that will stay in my heart forever.

BraveSoul was a high point in my life!!!

You are a super star! Your honesty and passion for life have blessed me. I am grateful to you for many things. Because of you I am more open, happier and growing faster. \r\n\r\nThe Irish retreat was a high point in my life and now I have a concrete souvenir of the good times. Thank you, thank you. I will definitely recommend the retreat to friends looking for an open door to profound growth.

10 surprises from my BraveSoul experience:

★★★★★

10. A “Pub” is not somewhere you go to drink! 9. Amazing what you can “see” without relying on your eyes. What you can “understand” without relying on your mind. 8. We actually “adjusted” living in a Celtic Castle and being served like a King/Queen. 7. Not only the do Irish people drive on the opposite side of the roads, a “ditch” and “downhill” also mean something different. 6. By taking an “inspired” afternoon walk in the “moist”, “crisp”, “manure-rich” historic lands of Ireland, you can actually “cleanse” your soul through your shoes. 5. Sitting on ancient rocks atop of a majestically “fresh” hill, eating two slices of white bread with cheese never felt or tasted so good. 4. The most insightful “conversations” were not with the other participants that came together – albeit good, but with the “person” we took with us. 3. There is no “App” for this! 2. 1000 pictures and conversations can only scratch the surface and meaning of this journey. But we will try. Not by what we say, but by how we live. 1. Today, there is someone building a “stone wall” somewhere in Ireland. There are 18 of us taking some down.

My experience with BraveSoul in Ireland was the best gift I've ever given myself. The time away, the deeply moving conversations and incredible nature and quietness was enough to cause deep shifts in my core. I was able to receive a clarity that would never have come from staying in my own environment, trying my own "self-growth". Philip's skill and deep care in creating such a sacred space to be truly vulnerable is what makes this retreat so much more valuable and rare. I have to say BraveSoul was truly a birthplace for change and breakthrough's like nothing else I have ever experienced before.

I fell in love with myself

I didn't know what it was like to love myself before BraveSoul. I experienced pure, unconditional love for myself for the first time during my stay in Ireland. That place and the people with me will always have a special place in my soul. I've shifted at a fundamental level, and my relationship with myself and others will be more authentic and stronger as a result.

I came on this retreat with no expectations. Knowing Philip I trusted it would be a game changer for me along with my mom who joined me on the trip. I can honestly say my relationship with myself, my mother, and of course my loved ones at home has been enriched in a beautiful and more importantly sustainable way. Give yourself this gift as we all deserve the best in life.

The singular most important thing I've done for myself...

★★★★★
5 5 1
BraveSoul was the singular most important and impactful thing I've ever done for myself. I know that sounds dramatic. It’s also true. To put that in perspective, I've travelled to 30+ countries, started two successful businesses, and spent a lot of time investing in myself in. What Philip taught me during BraveSoul is how to connect with my truth, feel my intuition, and trust myself. He taught me to see and harness my gifts, and to use them in service of what my heart yearns for. BraveSoul itself is an artistic masterpiece, a true expression of Philip’s own genius, creativity, and humanity. What I admire the most about this experience is Philip’s authenticity and generosity. The entire time I felt well taken care of, deeply cared for, and safe (in all senses of the word). He is a remarkably gifted man. I feel beyond fortunate the he chooses to use his gifts to invest in others. At one point someone in my retreat asked Philip what other services he offered, and he chose not to answer the question during BraveSoul because he didn’t feel it was appropriate to do anything even remotely close to selling to us during the experience. During the experience, he was exclusively interested in helping us grow. That’s a beautiful thing. In addition to all of the amazing internal work, BraveSoul is also peppered with stunning experiences around Western Ireland that no tourist would ever be able to access on his or her own. So let me make this very easy for you: if you feel at all drawn to Philip and his work, and you’re interested in BraveSoul even just a bit, do yourself a favor and book your spot now. If your experience is like mine, it will go on to change just about everything and your life will be much better for it.

One of the most beautiful experiences of my life...

I've done a lot of "personal growth" programs over the last 12 years (Tony Robbins, Landmark, etc...). I can honestly say that NOTHING that I've done has moved the needle for me more than working with Philip. Being in the event space myself, I went into the Irish Retreat with a pretty high standard when it comes to delivering value / experiences, but Philip far exceeded what I even thought was possible. Highly HIGHLY recommended! And if you're on the fence for any reason and would like additional details, feel free to reach out to me directly.

The Magic of Being a Brave Soul

★★★★★

At times I wondered why I was there! I have always felt disconnected and the experience made me realize that I shut myself off. I was told to trust the experience and I am glad that I stayed to explore all possibilities. I left Ireland knowing more about myself and releasing a creativity I would not have considered myself as having. I enjoyed my time learning about Ireland; playing Gaelic football and hurling; drinking in the pub; walking in the rain on the cliffs of Moher (even when it was freezing); and most of all meeting a group of brave souls willing to share a vulnerable journey of discovery. I am humbled to be a part of something that is still unfolding each day as I discover me.

Hands down the absolute BEST, most impactful and life altering experience that I have ever had. I strongly urge that you consider going on this retreat yourself..

I literally returned home a changed man

Four years ago my entire identity and how I knew to relate with the world was shattered. I lost my business, my vision, my drive. I had to start over again. Hitting that rock bottom woke me up and reminded me how I needed to invest in myself - first and foremost. That money, a job, a woman, a business would not solve the empty crater that was my heart, my self worth. Slowly I began to pick up the pieces and things were turning around. I was experiencing a new way of being. A new momentum. Something inside me was yearning to reach out to Philip. I knew somehow that his guidance at that time was what I most needed. Days... DAYS later I receive a last minute invitation for this incredible experience. A spot opened up. I had no idea how I'd pull it off but I committed anyway. My gut just knew the timing was right. Somehow, I rose to the level of my commitment and I made it happen. I found myself surrounded by such open, vulnerable, soulful people on this journey with me. I witnessed the green, majestic, enchanting beauty that is Ireland and it's people. I experienced the intuitive, mind blowing, existential ass kicking (in a good way!) from Philip McKernan. There are no words that truly capture how this one week retreat has impacted who I am today and who I am becoming. I literally returned home a changed man. Clear, open-hearted, feeling at home in my own skin. That same day I trusted my gut and committed to becoming a yoga teacher and beginning my breakthrough coaching practice. The gifts, the purpose, that move me and are currently my life and living. It's not just a weeklong retreat. It's the beginning of a new era of who you are as a human being. These insights continue to reverberate and unfold in my life as we speak - almost four years later. If you are seeking, craving, clarity, you must check this out. If you are succeeding in an area of your life yet feel something is missing, feel restless, unfulfilled, this is worth considering. If you are feeling lost, unclear, wondering 'what's next?' you must learn about this powerful experience. I am inspired and I am grateful to have Philip as a coach, friend, and mentor. Connect with him and his team, I know you will be in good hands.

Philip McKernan has had a very positive impact on me that I will be forever grateful for

In my lifetime, I've used drugs, alcohol and religion many times to dull the emptiness and pain I have felt at times from my own human experience. I didn’t understanding why, because things were not that bad. Looking back, I now understand a good life does not necessarily mean I would feel fulfilled, because being out of alignment in my work and with myself will never lead to depth of fulfillment. Over the past few years I have failed, tried again and got back up to let go of expectations, change my relationship with money, let go of things not serving me, simplify my material life, value who I am etc. and got to experience more of who I am without so many masks. I still have more to learn and grow as it will always be, but never have I felt such peace as the experience of being me. Don't get sucked in by the sellers of snake oil and the glitter of image, the real gold is you, simple as that. Some might ask “Well how does that happen?” The simple answer is, I don’t know. But one thing is for sure, it wasn’t on my own. I’ve had some great influences from family and friends and one man in particular, Philip McKernan who has had a very positive impact on me that I will be forever grateful for. The next part of the journey for me will be to become more aligned in the work I do every day, work that inspires me ☺

The toughest 1% growth we all need

This experience changed me, but just made me 1% more who I am, more authntic. The first 1% is the toughest but I now have momentum and awareness to keep growing and discovering on my own. It was 10x more powerful than I expected, tough work, but so freeing and fun.

What a week! Connecting with 20 beautiful souls in the majestic County Clare countryside. Philip has a deep love for Ireland and it shows through the wonderfully guided hikes and interactions with locals throughout the week. We took a deep dive into our own stories, all the way back to childhood. Technology was left behind and space was created to see how our past has created the present. This was glorious. It was a long, hard, emotional road, but the courage that every soul in this group showed made it all possible. This week allowed me to really connect with the power of being vulnerable and how it plays into developing a deep connection with other people. I deepened my sense of empathy towards others. I got in touch with that feeling in my gut again. I got out of my head and allowed my self to feel the pain others were experiencing which allowed me to connect emotionally with my own story. This was so powerful. This type of work has a value that no dollar value could be placed on. It will help you uncover the things in your life that are not serving you and holding you back from living a life in alignment to what is true to YOU. All you need to do is lean in and trust Philip to guide you through the process. I did, and I am so grateful. “The past has created the present, the present is creating the future.”

All is not the same

Work, vacations, time, traveling, family, places, home, relationships... they are no longer what they used to be and they will never be the same. They are to be experienced, they must be lived. stop, breath, see it all again, express what I have inside, and continue the journey, this time lighter. That's Brave Soul for me. 🙂

BraveSoul was a monumental experience for me. Of all the courses and training programs I've ever taken, I've never come across someone who has authentically cared more for our personal success than Philip. His unique way and skillfully planned programming throughout our week in Ireland made for a truly transformative experience. Great people also attract great company. I had heard from past BraveSoul attendees, that they made lifelong friendships with exceptional people whom they met at this life-changing BraveSoul retreat. That was absolutely the case for me too! If you're yearning for some kind of change in your life - with work, or family and friends, if you are searching for your true calling and purpose - don't waste another second. Sign up for BraveSoul. This is the best investment you can make - an investment in you (that will then spread into everything and everyone you care about). I do believe Philip McKernan will soon become a household name. Having experienced BraveSoul, I can tell you, his impact is that powerful.

Are you seeking clarity? Are you craving more meaning in your life? Do you wonder what's possible with more awareness and alignment in your life? The power of Philip McKernan and his BraveSoul retreat in Ireland is something that comes up regularly in my conversations. Not only was it an adventure, filled with laughter and incredible people, Philip's atmosphere allowed deep insights to unfold within us all. I attribute that special week to paving the the path to living a life where I get to share my story and my gifts today. The mastery in Philip's experiences is that you sign up to get what you want, but walkaway with the very thing you needed. I highly recommend you check out this powerful weeklong adventure with him. One of THE best investments I have EVER made.

I came to Brave Soul thinking I was experiencing writer's block for a novel I was working on. I spent the week -- thanks to Philip and an amazing group of courageous people -- going deeper and exploring some stuff from childhood. When I came up for air, I had not only made progress on that, but -- hey presto! -- the writer's block was gone too. A magical, deep, and enormous experience.

Heart-Opening Experience!

A incredible opportunity to create and experience a deep, profound and lasting shift in all areas of your life. The retreat strengthened my relationship with myself and my loved ones, but also brought into my life - the most incredible people I might never have had the pleasure of crossing paths with in a personal or professional setting. I left feeling truly alive, inspired and equipped to create more magic moments for myself and others. A big thank you to Philip and the team and I can't wait to continue on my journey knowing I am all I need and in times of difficulty, that I have the support of my new friends with me! 🙂

Bravesoul was on my radar for a while not because I was looking for answers but because I have a desire to deepen my knowledge of myself and to spend time with people who want the same. I have always learnt as much from those around me as I have for my own private experience and this was no different. I have more certainty and peace on my arrival home and a knowing that my relationships in life with family and friends are my top value over everything else and thats just fine!

It changed me, shifted me, and moved me

★★★★★

At BraveSoul, Philip looked into my eyes, reached in and grabbed my soul, pulled it out and showed it to me. That's all I needed to see... My true self without judgement, fear, and baggage. To just say 'BraveSoul changed my life' would be an understatement. It changed me, shifted me, and moved me. Before BraveSoul, I was heading down a path of regrets. After BraveSoul, I am carving out my own path.
