Stonehenge at sunset, and the thrill of standing within this sacred ring of stones. The atmosphere is alive with echoes of untold rituals and ceremonies reverberating down to us through fifty centuries of human history. We are blessed!
The close of this special day makes us reflect on the journey so far-Nanjizal Bay, its crystalline beach, secret cave and twin energy currents being the setting for the start of this quest… …treading the overgrown ancient pathway to one of the great meeting places of the Druidic bards- Boscawen-un… …going deep within in the underground initiatory chamber of Caer Fogou… …breathing in the panoramic beauty of Bodmin Moor from the extraordinary Cheesewring… The spirit of place has woven its spell, our sound healing work and ceremonies have been transformational; magic is afoot and we are led further into the mysteries… Ahead of us is the truly magical landscape of ancient Wessex
- Glastonbury Tor and Chalice Well beckon across time and space, drawing us into the enchanted Vale of Avalon
- The Bishop’s Palace and medieval Cathedral and marketplace of Wells Energy pathways, flowing sacred waters and pilgrim routes
- And awaiting us, as they have for eons, are the secrets stored away in the heart center of England, the awe-inspiring Avebury Landscape Temple.
“As we stand within this hallowed sanctuary. The sacred tones of voices in union echoing round the stones, I look at the faces of the group members lit up by this vision; Is your face one of them?”
This is the journey initiates were led on by the Keepers of the Mysteries of the Ancient Landscape Serpent Temple at Avebury at the return of the sun each year. This is the journey on which we invite you to join us. We will be working with both Sacred Sound and Sacred Earth Energies in simple ceremonies at places of power along the Michael and Mary energy currents. The use of sacred sound in alignment with earth energies is a tremendously potent tool that can assist in releasing stored wisdom at certain sacred sites and awakening ancient seeds of consciousness deep within us.
Day 1: Meet at Heathrow airport and travel by group minibus to overnight in Devon. Here the group will sleep within the range of the Mary earth energy current.
Day 2: Morning orientation followed by travel to West Penwith (tip of Cornwall) to our hotel for 3 nights. We are drawn by the mysterious sounding names-Nanjizal Bay, Men-an-tol and Boscawen-Un and for good reason, because they have not only retained their Celtic names but also their power.
We are very privileged to have Hamish Miller spend time with our group at the start of our quest. Hamish is the internationally renowned dowser who tracked the St. Michael line and first discovered the male/female energy currents associated with it.
Day 3: Visit to Nanjizal Bay where the earth energy currents first come ashore. The beach is underlain with quartz crystal and there is a cave. Here is the place we commit to the start of this pilgrimage.
After lunch we visit Boscawen-Un stone circle, a power center of the Druids, set in remote heathland. In April we will be treated to a visual and fragrant delight of wild hedgerow flowers in full bloom as we tread half-forgotten country paths that lead to secret holy wells, lone standing stones, cromlechs, fogous and hidden stone circles.
Day 4: We start today with a ritual healing ‘baptism’ at Sancreed Holy well where we learn of the importance of water. We will then hike up the nearby Sancreed Beacon which affords 360 degree panoramic views of West Penwith. Lunch will be provided at Rosemerryn, set in magical woodlands. Within the grounds is Caer Fogou, an underground initiatory chamber. This is a great place for seeking answers to inner questions and learning to trust.
Day 5: Today we move up country. On route we stop at the Hurlers stone circles (3) and the Cheesewring, a powerful natural pile of immense rocks in the middle of Bodmin Moor. This is a power spot of the earth energy currents, with outstanding views over the moor. Then we continue on to visit Scorhill stone circle on Dartmoor, a wonderfully energetic circle set in the dramatic wilds of the moor, surrounded by potent tors (rocky peaks). We continue on to Wells for a 3-night stay.
Day 6: We have a free morning to explore medieval Wells on market day. Discover the 800 year-old Gothic Cathedral and the Bishop's Palace with its moat, drawbridge and beautiful swans. After lunch we will visit nearby Glastonbury beginning with Wearyall Hill, the site of the Holy Thorn Tree. There will then be free time to explore some of the more unusual shops in Glastonbury, selling everything from candles and incense to crystals, spiritual books and Goddess statues. Or you may wish to book in for one of the many healing modalities on offer.
Day 7: This morning we have arranged for the group to have private special access at dawn into the stones of the world's most famous sacred site – Stonehenge. The full moon will be setting in the east as the sun rises in the west, turning the circle of stones into the perfect chalice within which to perform our ceremony of transformation and healing. This is a rare opportunity to truly experience a site revered by countless generations. After breakfast we return to Glastonbury, the legendary Isle of Avalon. We visit Glastonbury Abbey, once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of Britain and reputed to have been the resting place of King Arthur and Guinevere. The Tor has been a beacon of spirituality since pagan times; the views from the top are spectacular. We conclude this day at Chalice Well, considered by many to be the holiest well in England. You are encouraged to drink from the holy well where, a local story states, the Holy Grail is hidden.
Day 8: Move hotel base to near Marlborough for 2 nights. Avebury, just six miles to the west of our hotel, is the heart center of megalithic Britain. All the sacred sites in this area center on Avebury, including Stonehenge some twenty miles distant. The stone circle and its stone avenues formed a Serpent Temple with Avebury stone circle as its belly. This afternoon we will visit the head of the serpent at The Sanctuary and the tail at Knoll Down.
Day 9: Today is Beltane, the Celtic festival celebrating the return of the Sun and the fertility of the Earth. Following in the footsteps of countless generations going back five thousand years we start this day with a sunrise ceremony. This ceremony honors and brings together all we have experienced on this journey.
After breakfast there will be some free time for last minute shopping followed by lunch. We conclude our tour with visits to the twin sites of Merlin's Mound and Morgan's Hill.
Day 10: Return to Heathrow for flights home.
This tour is only offered once - in April/May, and at no other time.
