On this journey you will be travelling with:

Mary2015Mary K. Greer
With more than ten books and 48 years experience in Tarot, Mary K. Greer pioneered many of the Tarot reading methods used today, including reading Tarot for yourself and methods that are interactive, transformational and empowering. She has a deep knowledge of the origins of the Waite-Smith deck and a particular interest in ‘Pixie’, the artist, Pamela Colman-Smith who lived for 30 years in Cornwall.

Mary has travelled to many sacred sites around the world and developed ways of communing with the land and sacred places. As part of the ritual in Stonehenge during the 2017 tour, everyone moved slowly around the circle to find their power spot. There each person drew a Tarot card to channel a message which they shared during the ritual. For more on what Mary calls Traveling with Sacred Intention, click here to read a blog post where she outlines a few of her favourite methods. ‘Your intention may be to gain knowledge about nature, the land or the place.’ she says. ‘Or you may be on a quest for personal insight.’

LindaCropLinda Marson
Professional Tarot reader, teacher and founder of Global Spiritual Studies, likens the Tarot to a GPS, one that helps you navigate your way through life. On the tour, she facilitates a process for exploring the link between our inner and outer journeys and for tuning into the messages sacred sites and landscapes have for us. She believes readings we do on the tour will shine a light on what sustains us spiritually and how we connect with it.

Jamie2015Jamie George
Director of Gothic Image Tours, Jamie George, has been taking spiritual pilgrims on tours for over 30 years. “It’s been an honour to journey with so many interesting and inspiring people, helping them tune in to the history, mystery and magic of ancient sacred places, where every site has a story to tell. I imagine myself coming there for the first time, and if you put yourself in that position, all kinds of things can open up. For me, it’s a dance between memory and revelation. Some of the most memorable times are those when we’re just having fun. You find yourself laughing and joking because you’re opening up, you’re becoming much more at one with yourself and the land.”

  • Stonehenge
  • Avebury and West Kennet long barrow
  • Glastonbury and surrounding area – Chalice Well,  the Tor, Glastonbury Abbey, Cadbury/Camelot
