Myths and megaliths, landscapes and legends
The tours we offer are designed for the spiritual pilgrim in search of inner peace, renewal and a taste of ancient knowledge.
A sacred journey involves passing through a series of gateways on the path to oneness with nature and the divine. An adventure of the soul, it is a process of surrender to “a voice in the heart when the earth underfoot becomes sacred and the air we breathe is like wine poured out for us by some heavenly cup-bearer” (A.E Russell). Thus begins a quest for our own personal holy grail.
The British Isles are like a storybook full of tales of magic, mystery and imagination. Called by the Celts ‘the Blessed Isles of the West’, history, myth and legend have intermingled to create a colourful and intriguing tapestry of a magical past. Here archetypal figures such as Merlin, Arthur and Morgan Le Fay loom large.
Our ancestors bequeathed to us a legacy of shrines and holy places, set in a living landscape full of symbolism and meaning, awesome in their power and beauty. We travel through some of the most beautiful and inspiring parts of the British and Irish countryside, including places known only to a few.
On our journeys, we visit holy wells, enchanted forests, Druid oak groves, stone circles, dolmens of the dead, fairy mounds, magical caves, sacred islands, ancient castles, ruined abbeys and majestic cathedrals – all with a story to tell.
The mood of our journey and shared quest into the nature of life provides a safe space that reinforces our sense of oneness, heals old wounds and brings us to an awareness of our full potential. This is helped by quiet reflection at a tree, a well, or standing stone.
I look forward to warmly welcoming you on the tour of your choice.
With peace and blessings of the Earth Spirit.
