- Attendance at a top Crop Circle Conference with international researchers
Southern England is blessed with an abundance of very special sacred sites and for the same reason that the crop circles occur here, because of the presence of underground water potentised by powerful currents of earth energy. You will learn about the importance of both energy and water and be able to dowse for them. This knowledge will give you a key to understanding power centres in the landscape such that sacred sites will never look the same again!
Each summer the unexplained phenomenon of crop circles is played out in fields of grain. Every year in England scores of geometric symbols, mandalas and beautiful patterns appear in the crop fields, particularly in the county of Wiltshire.
Join us in late July, at the height of the crop circle season, to explore the ancient sacred sites and hopefully experience some crop circles firsthand. We have access to the information network that provides breaking news on the latest formations and so we know as soon as possible when there is a new circle we can visit.
You can try dowsing for any energy present in the crop circles and the earth energy currents that often link the circles to local sacred sites. We have visitors from every continent come to experience this tour - and make new friends!
Sacred Sites. The remarkable sacred sites we visit on this tour include:
-Stonehenge - where our group will have exclusive access to this world famous ancient monument for a private visit outside of normal hours.
-Salisbury Cathedral - the world famous medieval cathedral with the tallest spire in England
-Glastonbury on the fabled Isle of Avalon, including:
*Glastonbury Abbey - once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of England, it was the birthplace of Christianity in Britain, established by Joseph of Arimathea, who may well have brought his nephew Jesus here. It is also the reputed burial place of King Arthur & Queen Guinevere.
*Glastonbury Tor - a natural anomalous hill, topped with St. Michael's tower, rises majestically from the surrounding Somerset Levels and acts as a beacon of spirituality, as it has done since Pagan times, for people of all beliefs. The Michael and Mary earth energy currents associated with the St Michael Line form the most magical and alchemical pattern upon the Tor.
*Chalice Well - possibly England's most sacred holy well, where we will be greeted by one of the guardians. They will guide us through each stage of the beautiful tranquil gardens which have been created around the well-head and invite us to drink of these healing waters. This is a perfect place to spend some time in reflection and meditation.
Avebury Landscape Temple - the heart centre of Megalithic Britain. All the sacred sites in this area centre on Avebury, including Stonehenge some twenty miles distant, and they are all interconnected by powerful earth energy currents. We will visit:
-Avebury Henge - here, within the largest stone circle in the world, we find the remains of two former stone circles, one solar and one lunar
-The Sanctuary - a former stone circle at the head of a mile-and-a-quarter long avenue of stones leading to Avebury.
-Knoll Down - a natural cathedral of trees at the 'tail of the serpent temple'.
-Silbury Hill - a huge artificial mound with remarkable energetic properties.
-West Kennet Long Barrow - an ancient underground chamber with powerful acoustics.
Uffington White Horse & Dragon Hill - a 3,000 year old chalk figure carved into a hilltop. Wayland's Smithy - a neolithic long barrow set within a copse of trees
Included in the tour is attendance at the Summer Crop Circle Lectures in Devizes organized by Karen & Steve Alexander of Temporary Temples. There will be international crop circle researchers present and a variety of presentations covering many different aspects of this amazing phenomenon as well as related topics. This conference is held within close walking distance to our hotel in the centre of town giving you complete freedom to determine your own schedule for the weekend. A high spot of the tour! You will have the opportunity to take a flight above these exquisite cosmic works of art in a small chartered helicopter! To learn more about crop formations, we suggest the book Crop Circles: Signs, Wonders and Mysteries by Karen and Steve Alexander.
Note: the schedule for the tour will be partly determined by the crop formations as they appear. We are sure to experience some exciting and spontaneous changes to our itinerary by the unpredictability of this amazing phenomenon!
Your tour guides, Glenn and Cameron Broughton, will meet the group at Heathrow airport after your overnight flight. We will travel in our private minibuses to our hotel in Devizes in the heart of crop circle country. You will have time to rest up or take lunch and then explore this charming market town. There is a good range of shops, cafes, restaurants, markets and pubs readily available as our hotel is situated right in the center of town in the old marketplace. The hills and fields around the town are a popular venue for crop circles as is the whole countryside stretching east. The majority of crop circles each year occur within 15 miles of our hotel. Welcome and introductions followed by dinner. Dinner at the hotel
Day 2: Orientation meeting
You’ve seen the pictures and now is your chance to personally experience the crop circles first-hand. Your expert tour guides, who have been into hundreds of formations over the last fifteen years, will show you what to look for and how to dowse for any energies present. At various times during the tour we will be joined by some of the top crop circle researchers who will share their views, knowledge and expertise with us. What better way to learn all about this amazing phenomenon than by being in the circles in the fields and having experts on hand for guidance.
Free-choice dinner not included
Today we visit Avebury, the heart centre of megalithic Britain. Here, within the largest stone circle in the world, we find the remains of two former stone circles, one solar and one lunar. Other ancient sacred sites within the Avebury Landscape Temple include the remarkable five thousand year old manmade Silbury Hill. We will visit West Kennet Long Barrow, an underground chamber used both as a tomb and a place of initiation, which has wonderful acoustics. Knoll Down, a tranquil sacred grove of trees, is the ‘tail’ of the Serpent Temple and was once connected to Avebury by an avenue of stones stretching for a mile and a quarter in length. A similar avenue also led off in another direction culminating at The Sanctuary the ‘head’ of the Serpent Temple.
All the sacred sites in this area centre on Avebury, including Stonehenge some twenty miles distant. Powerful earth energy currents course through this landscape and this may be one reason why the majority of crop circles occur within a 10-mile radius of Avebury. We will visit different sacred sites within this landscape temple during the tour according to where and when the crop circles occur. In the afternoon we will visit any crop circles situated close by these ancient sacred sites. Dinner at the hotel
Day 4: We will spend the whole of this day in Glastonbury, otherwise known as the Isle of Avalon.
Rising dramatically from the flat land of the surrounding Somerset Levels, the huge natural mound of the Tor, surmounted by St. Michael’s tower, has been a beacon of spirituality since pagan times and still acts as a magnet for people of all beliefs. You will hear the stories and the legends as well as experience the powerful energy and atmosphere of this sacred site. Plus the views from the top are spectacular!
We visit the beautiful and tranquil gardens of Chalice Well, one of the true healing places in this land where you are encouraged to drink from the holy well. A local legend states that the Holy Grail is hidden within the wellhead.
Glastonbury Abbey, the birthplace of Christianity in England and referred to as the ‘holiest earth in England’, was once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of Britain. It is no coincidence that the dual energy currents of England’s most famous leyline cross at the site of the high altar. A grave in the centre of the Abbey ruins is reputed to have been the resting place of King Arthur and Guinevere.
Glastonbury is full of unusual shops selling everything from candles and incense to colourful clogs, books and Goddess statues that you can peruse at your leisure during a long lunch break. Free-choice dinner not included
We will have a free morning for you to enjoy ‘Market Day’ in Devizes, an English tradition for hundreds of years. This is held in the market-place directly outside our hotel, allowing you to determine your own schedule. After lunch we’ll visit any new crop circles that may have occurred before our afternoon visit with Michael Glickman. Michael has been in the forefront of crop circle research for twenty years and has seen it all. We will have personal time with him to discuss crop circles in depth. Michael is also very entertaining and everyone loves these visits. Dinner at an olde-world village pub - included
We start the day with an early morning visit to Stonehenge. We have arranged for the group to have private special access into the stones of the world's most famous sacred site. Touch the huge megaliths which have stood in magnificent isolation on the windswept Salisbury Plain for thousands of years, feel the pulse of powerful earth energy currents coursing beneath your feet, imagine the ceremonies which have been performed by robed priests over aeons of time or just sit in quiet meditation. This is a rare opportunity to truly experience a site revered by countless generations. Breakfast in a nearby hotel.
For those who choose the helicopter flight, we’re off to the local airfield for a flight above the Circlemakers’ exquisite cosmic works of art in small chartered helicopters – truly the high spot of the tour for many! You will also get to spend some time exploring nearby Salisbury including its medieval cathedral. Those not flying can choose to have a free morning or have more time in Salisbury. After lunch we will visit any new crop circles. Free-choice dinner not included.
We will spend the weekend attending the Crop Circle Summer Lectures in Devizes organized by Karen and Steve Alexander of Temporary Temples. There will be international crop circle researchers present and a variety of presentations covering many different aspects of this amazing phenomenon as well as related topics. The conference is held close to our hotel and right in the centre of town so you can easily choose to skip certain presentations and have personal time.
-Sat - Free-choice dinner not included
-Sun - Conference dinner in the Town Hall
Today we will visit Uffington White Horse & Dragon Hill, ancient energetic sacred sites located on the Belinus leyline, with a very interesting story to tell. Close by is Wayland’s Smithy an atmospheric long barrow set within a copse of trees where we can have a picnic lunch. We will also visit the ‘Cathedral in the Vale’ – St Mary’s church in Uffington village built in 1250AD. If a new crop circle has occurred in the area over the weekend that we can visit then we will be there! The day finishes with our tour farewell dinner at the hotel
