My friend Helen Tomei has just sent me tantalizing information about her upcoming tour of some of the most powerful sacred places in England this August. It’s called “Return to Avalon – The Magic of the Stones” and it includes many of the pilgrimage destinations I would dearly love to experience again. Here is what Helen had to say in her invitation:
Join us on a pilgrimage to the sacred sites of England to deepen the power of your intuition and inner knowing. Travel from the gentle embrace of Somerset, considered the legendary heart center of the world, to the wild and rugged beauty of Cornwall, known as the home of the ancient Britons. Awaken the energies of the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine within yourself and restore the balance of this Divine Union.
Imbibe the nurturing energy of the healing waters of Chalice Well and immerse yourself in the mesmerizing reflections at Bath. Feel the loving embrace of the Lady of the Lake in the sacred Isle of Avalon and the strength of Lady Guinevere. Connect with Mother Nature and the Sacred Feminine at Silbury Hill, delve into the womb of the earth at West Kennet Longbarrow, and honour your inner divinity through an Initiation into the Lineage of Mary Magdalene, Isis and the Rose.
Explore the home of mighty King Arthur at Cadbury Castle in ancient Camelot, honour his final resting place at Glastonbury Abbey, and retrace his lineage at Tintagel Castle. Harness the power of Excalibur in a special Sword Ceremony and awaken the warrior within yourself.
Travel back in time to experience the mystery and magic of the Holy Grail, sing the beauty of the English countryside from the top of Glastonbury Tor and honour your ancestors at the holy place of St. Michael.
Join your new brothers and sisters to re-light the Sacred Flame of Camelot, and be led into Meditation with Sacred Oils amongst the great oaks. Participate in a special Grail Initiation Ceremony during our Private Entrance at Stonehenge to invoke the power of our ancestors and help activate a vision of peace and harmony on Earth.
Discover the mystery and magic of the stones at Avebury, Stonehenge, Madron and Bodmin Moor and become acquainted with the “Stone People”, the ones who store knowledge and information that will provide a key to the destiny of mankind.
Connect with your “Anam Cara”, the Celtic word for soul friends and kindred spirits, and re-awaken the energies of rebirth, power, healing and love. Go within yourself and touch the sacred stillness of your own being which will assist you in awakening your consciousness to deepen the understanding of your life’s purpose. Share in songs, stories, ceremonies, blessings and meditations as you weave the inner with the outer to create a tapestry of beauty, mystery, inspiration and purpose.

Thanks and best wishes,
