Pilgrims’ Weekend 2019

Friday 5 April - Sunday 7 April

£50 – £215.5

Through the Heart to the Land – Co-creating New Stories
5TH-7TH APRIL, 2019 – MARTINSELL CENTRE, OARE, WILTSHIRE

The 2019 residential Gatekeeper Trust Pilgrims’ Weekend will be based at the Martinsell Centre in Oare, near Pewsey from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th April 2019: www.martinsellcentre.com.

As we are poised on the brink of possibilities, this is the time to dream new stories for Albion, and for ourselves. The Wessex landscape holds much knowledge to share with those who come with an open heart.

The focus will be to come together in this powerful area to envision a positive future, reclaim our personal sovereignty and purpose and dissolve blocks which are preventing this, with the healing power of the land.

Charlotte Yonge will introduce the weekend on the Friday evening, tracing out a grail cup in the landscape, the stem of which runs from Amesbury through Salisbury to Christchurch, the mouth of the River Avon. Five rivers converge into The Avon in this chalk landscape bowl.

On Saturday, after a morning talk by Gary Biltcliffe and Caroline Hoare about Old Sarum and a discussion of the Blick Mead Mesolithic site in Amesbury, Gary and Caroline will lead a site visit to Old Sarum – possibly the jewel on the stem of the grail cup and an important geomantic and historic centre. A visit to Amesbury will also be included.

Sunday morning will be dedicated to participants sharing stories and investigations from their own areas, including Wheel of Life project initiatives. The afternoon will be spent in the landscape, at Durrington Walls and Woodhenge. There is also a wonderful mound to explore on Martinsell Hill.
