Land of Leylines and Legends; Cornwall & Southwest England Tour

"As we stand within this hallowed sanctuary 

I look at the faces of the group members lit up by this vision; 

Is your face one of them?"

BOOKING NOW CLOSED

A spiritual mystery can best be approached only indirectly, from off to one side. And so we approach mysterious Dumnonia, or Cornwall, via the ancient Celtic Lands of England's far Southwest as we enter the county of Devon and its landscape heartland of Dartmoor. Here we find atmospheric stone circles hidden in the folds of the beautiful moor, each with a gift to bestow. We will hold an opening meditation to connect with the energies of the land and the Spirit of Place.

Then we travel onwards to West Penwith, the ‘toe’ of land at the foot of Britain surrounded by the ocean from which it defends itself with mighty coastal cliffs; it has survived almost like a land out of time...  

St. Michael’s Mount, dedicated to the Archangel Michael, is accessible at low tide by a pedestrian causeway and at high tide only by small local boats. The site of both a former monastery and a military castle its history reflects the duality of life. The majestic isle is a paramount place to reflect on this lesson where the powerful  Michael/Mary and European Apollo/Athena Earth energy currents all converge.

We are drawn by the mysterious sounding names of 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. The heavily crystal-studded granite underlying this land conducts powerful Earth energy currents to each of the sacred sites, and surprisingly there are more ancient sacred sites per square mile here than anywhere else on Earth. Their isolation within this beautiful rugged landscape has helped to preserve so many of them. Each person connects with the sites in their own way, we will offer instruction in dowsing for the energy, have time for meditation and conduct ceremonies.

We tread half-forgotten country paths that lead to secret holy wells, lone standing stones, cromlechs and hidden stone circles. Every stone and flower comes vibrantly to life under the glow of the special Cornish light. This is no fanciful notion but a reality that has attracted many artists to live and paint in Cornwall. 

After our time immersed in this special land we travel to the north Cornish coast to arrive at Tintagel. The castle ruins which sit atop the cliffs mark the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. There have been few more evocative and appealing stories throughout history than that of the young warrior king. With its call to the noble, the romantic, the courageous and the spiritual seeker in each of us how can we fail to be drawn to this legend? By walking this land on our own Grail quest we find answers, often in the most unlikely of places. 

It may be down below on the beach in Merlin’s Cave, accessible only at low tide, or nearby at St. Nectan’s Glen where the water from a beautiful waterfall flows through the hermit saint’s cell, which has been converted into a prayer and meditation sanctuary. Or it may well be at Dozmary Pool, the home of the Lady of the Lake where we each receive a gift from the Lady.

Finally heading into the ancient kingdom of Wessex we go to Salisbury with its medieval cathedral and have the opportunity to visit world-famous Stonehenge to discover some of it's secrets and to conclude our pilgrimage through this very special land.
