THE MAGIC OF AVALON
JUNE 4-10, 2020
THE MERLIN LEGACY
A story of universal lore
The story of King Arthur and Merlin the wizard is part of human imagination like any fairy tales , only that this...may be real after all.
People come to England from the four corners of the world, following a trail that seems ever elusive , yet almost palpable to the senses. Ruined medieval castles and remote megalithic stones dot the tranquil landscape, while the wild energies run across land and water, carrying the wisdom of the wizards of Avalon. The signs are still there for the one who can see with the raven’s eye and hear with the hare’s instinct. The witches are there too, did you think they had left? They may be disguised behind modern looks, but not for long, not at night...
“With a twist and a turn and some magical gear, you may see for yourself, let your doubts disappear! “
If you’ve always been fascinated by the Avalon stories come and join us this summer and see for yourself. Travel through the English countryside visiting places of magic and wonder, places of worship from pagan times and modern temples to the Goddess and Pan. Connect to the landscape, to the rocks and the wind, to the sacred wells and the Fay within.
Come with us on the road to Camelot, let us tickle your imagination and awaken your memories...
7 DAYS SHAMANIC EXPERIENCE
Day 1: Stonehenge and the Circle of Light
We leave London in the morning and spend the day at the world renowned site of Stonehenge, where up to this day ceremonies are held by the druids. We then travel forward to Glastonbury where we check into a local b&b.
Day 2: Full Moon ceremony on the Glastonbury Tor
On day two we spent the morning preparing for the Full Moon ceremony like witches do. We break for lunch then spend the afternoon exploring the village of Glastonbury, with its quirky high street where you can find anything from old spells books to witches cloaks, crystal balls and elves ears ( for real). Then at dusk we begin walking up the hill to the timeless portal of Avalon, the Glastonbury Tor.
Day 3: Sacred waters
This is a day of introspection, we go slow and we go deep, balancing the masculine and the feminine within at the Chalice Well and at the White Spring. The red and the White Spring are famous worldwide for their healing waters and for making miracles happen. We drink, pray and bathe, purifying and reactivating the ley lines in our mind, heart and womb.
Day 4: Wells and the Chamber of Angels
A day trip to the nearby town of Wells to visit its state of the art cathedral and grounds, and connect to the angelic realms in the chamber of angels. We visit the town centre before returning to Glastonbury for the evening.
Day 5: Glastonbury Abbey, resting place of King Arthur
On our last day in Glastonbury we pay homage to King Arthur’s grave in the grounds of the ruined Abbey, where myth and legend intertwin with modern time.
Day 6: Avebury, the Druids village
On day 6 we leave Glastonbury in the morning and travel down to Avebury, completing the sacred triangle ( Stonehenge, Avebury and Glastonbury ). We spend the day inside the stone circle, on the tracks of the druids. We break for lunch at the local pub and then explore the tiny village and its magical Henge gift shop. We check in for the night at a local traditional bed & breakfast.
Day 7: Silbury Hill, cradle of the Crop Circles
On our last day together we visit the West Kennet long barrow and Silbury Hill, both very sacred prehistoric sites and epicenter of crop circle formations. We bring offerings to the ancestors to give thanks for the gifts received during the journey. And if we are lucky...we might witness a fresh crop formation!
( Please note that we cannot guarantee we will see a crop circle because the Galactic Council doesn’t take bookings!)
We conclude our adventure in the afternoon and make our way back to London.
