Saturday 24 November 2018

MORNING PROGRAMME:

“From the Earth, Light” – Peter Dawkins
Peter will talk about the Dream Sculpture. Its key placement in the British landscape zodiac marks the Alpha-Omega point of the zodiac, to which the finger of Orion points. This position is associated with the start of a new Great Age and is twinned and in balance with its opposite pole in the heart of London that metaphorically marks the centre of the Milky Way Galaxy. Like the two parents of a golden child, both are key to creating a Golden Age, the dream of saints, sages and ordinary people for many ages.

“The Power of Centre” – Gary Biltcliffe and Caroline Hoare
Gary and Caroline’s spiritual travelogue of Albion and its earth mysteries continues with the exploration and research of ancient navel or focal points of Celtic Britain and Ireland. They will also reveal their connection with old and modern pilgrim routes, the healing potential within the land, and the worship of the Celtic Aquarian goddess Bride.

AFTERNOON PROGRAMME:

“Deep Waters” – Maria Wheatley
Geomancers of prehistory built their monuments upon vast underground lakes, or the crossing point of underground rivers and streams. Deep underground water that is chemically produced within the Earth produces a three-fold energy pattern. Our distant Neolithic long skulled ancestors sited megalithic temple spaces above these patterns, which personified the goddess and marked the esoteric centre of a sacred site. Maria compares ‘geopathic stress’ emissions from underground rainwater to the harmonic energy emissions of deep underground water.

“The Birds who Flew Beyond Time” – Helen Sands and Mark Bedford
A dramatic retelling of the ancient Sufi story The Conference of the Birds by Farid ud-Din Attar who was considered by Rumi to be ‘the master’ of Sufi mystic poetry.His story is a magnificent allegorical tale about the soul’s search for meaning. In this contemporary re- telling by Anne Baring, the Earth asks all the birds of the world to go on a perilous journey to save her life, by finding the Great Being who lives beyond the Edge of Time, and bringing back the message given there.

‘EVENING GATHERING’: 8.00 – 10.00pm
Details to be confirmed

Sunday 25 November 2018

MORNING PROGRAMME:

“Dreaming the Land” – Angharad Wynne
When we hold ourselves open to the songlines slumbering beneath our feet, the land is our teacher. Many seek and find spiritual sustenance from indigenous cultures across the world. Yet the answers are also found here when we connect to the indelible knowledge our ancestors left in space and time at certain sites. In this talk, Angharad will look at what it means to learn new old ways of knowing and invites us to enter the dreaming of this land once more.

“Turning the Wheel of the Zodiac: a Pilgrimage of the Soul” – John Wadsworth
John Wadsworth presents the zodiac as a wheel of initiation, healing and transformation – twelve gateways to wholeness. He will offer us a dynamic map of the soul’s astrological journey, something that we can carry with us as pilgrims, as we revivify the zodiacal landscape that is already hard-wired into our imaginations.

AFTERNOON PROGRAMME:

As last year, there is then a choice between two afternoon activities, weaving the themes of the weekend into activity and experience:

  • River Pilgrimage to the nearby Avon River, led by Angharad Wynne
  • Orientation to the 4 Directions and Spirit of Place, and Creating a Mandala
    with Peter and Sarah Dawkins

Closing Circle:
The weekend will close with the opportunity for discussion and closing comments.
