Saturday 23 November 2019

REGISTRATION: 9.30am

MORNING PROGRAMME: 10am – 1pm

“The Great Myths and Landscape of Britain” – Peter Dawkins
All great myths are related to the landscape in which they are born and evolve, as well as to the human beings who live in those landscapes. They are poetic and meaningful stories of who we were, are, and can be or will be, moulded by the landscape and its inherent intelligence and purpose. If we allow it, the land can be our teacher, our friend and our partner in the great journey of life – and this is especially true of Britain, which is rich in myth.

“Tales of the White Horse” – Angela Shaw
Angela Shaw has built a relationship with the chalk white horse hill figures of Wiltshire and Uffington over the past 3 years through pilgrimage. She senses an embedded energetic network in the land connecting these iconic geoglyphs. Her holistic art practice brings people to the point of encounter to have their own experience of connection with these sacred sites. New stories may emerge from their archaic wisdom.

AFTERNOON PROGRAMME: 2.15pm – 5pm

“Vale of Pewsey and Ancient History” – Isabelle Kingston
Memories and Magic reside in the Land around Pewsey. Long ago, connecting with the Land and its energy for the benefit of the tribe was a matter of survival. The recognition of the individual energy of each place developed the creation of Sacred Sites which abound in Wiltshire. People travelled here from vast distances, having heard stories of their power and all they had to offer. We walk in the footsteps of those Ancestors.

“Albion Dreamtime” – Peter Knight and Sue Wallace
Based on their new book, Sue and Peter share their Questing to Albion’s magical, natural sacred places. It was to such Dreamtime places that early hunter-gatherers and shamans came to contact the Earth Spirit. Sue and Peter look at Albion’s myths and how people were once deeply connected to Nature. They make a passionate plea to visit ancient natural places; their message is a timely rallying cry at this pivotal time of change.

EVENING GATHERING: 7.30 – 9.30pm:
A magical evening of story and song, featuring storytelling with Andreas Kornevall and songs from the Heart with Susan Raven and Andrew Clark.

TICKETS: The evening is included as part of the conference OR evening only tickets available here:

Sunday 24 November 2019

MORNING PROGRAMME: 10am – 1pm

“Communicating and Co-Creating with the Elemental Kingdom” – Susan Raven
Susan will be exploring the supersensible substance and dynamics of the elemental kingdom, looking at ways we can work in co-creative partnership with the nature spirits and elementals of our area. The nature spirits, as emissaries of higher spiritual beings, wish to be of great assistance. It is time to mend the lines of communication and to relearn a living world wisdom from them at this critical time in our evolution.

“Walking Between the Worlds” – Andreas Kornevall
Andreas will take us on a journey of discovery into the mythic imagination, asking what is a myth? How do the old stories and legends still live in us and our landscape and how can we find there the “Lost Gods and Goddesses of Britain.” Andreas will demonstrate how myth reveals to us the current predicaments our landscape is in, facing climate change and species extinction and what can be done.

AFTERNOON PROGRAMME: 2.15pm – 5pm

A choice of afternoon activities as two groups who will then join each other as a whole to conclude together:

  • Making a Mandala – Sarah Dawkins and Andrew Clark
    with sacred dance and singing from the heart. This allows us to connect with the flow of Universal Love and to give to and receive from the land with an open heart. In this way we can play our part in the myth of Rescuing the Heart.
  • Communicating with Nature Spirits – Susan Raven
    When we walk the land with an open heart that says, ‘My true self seeks your true self!’, we become visible to a great choir of nature beings who have a communicable intelligence and a potential gift of wisdom to share.

Closing Circle:
We will complete our weekend together in song and ceremony.
