Saturday 19 March @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Saturday 19th March at 2pm - 5pm from the Tower Of London. Tickets £25.00.

Walk the footsteps of our lineage at this Solar Festival. Greet the seven gates of the City of London and make your promises to your future.

Pilgrimage details:

Take a sacred walk through hidden London with me.

Walking the walls was wellbeing for the city and in return for ourselves. The walls, seen as the vessel for holding the energetic success of enterprise, mirrors the landscapes of many places of celebration and initiation and were part defence and part container for its success.

We will walk the same journey, use the potential of pilgrimage and walking, to know those promises that we wish to make at this Solar Festival of Ostara.

Ostara is the mid point of spring and a time of balance between the day and the night. It is when the dedications and hopes made at Imbolc and tested in this between time, are brought into balance and the energy of action is bought to them. To bring this action into being, we make promises to ourselves, that we are bound to honour and extend from our hearts.

We walk the walls and walk through the gateways, honouring each for the city and for ourselves, to bring in this time of heart action.

London-based landscape designer Jeremy Rye will be leading guided tours of the four London walks that were known to Kings and Queens since the beginning of the monarchy in England.

These spiritual walks were undertaken by the monarchs and the landscape keepers of the time. They would journey at specific points in their reign, at certain times of the year or for the marking of events. These were not only a means of navigating a city but seen as instrumental in maintaining its health, spiritual and commercial success.

Unlike a typical history tour, this is an opportunity for participants to mirror these spiritual journeys, in part to strengthen our sense of self, answer questions we have and to transform. They are an ideal companion to other self-reflection practices such as journaling, therapy or meditation.

Jeremy Rye is a practicing landscape architect who integrates history and spirituality in his work.

Route:

This is one of four sacred walks in London that crosses the city and will start at the Tower of London and end at back at the Tower of London. There will be seven stops made along the way where Jeremy will both point out historic architectural features, their history and their connection to a spiritual question. Participants are invited to use these stops not only to listen but find answers for themselves.

The walk will take on average 3 hours with a break and is not wheelchair accessible.

Meeting place:
