Walking in the footsteps of your sovereignty for the Lammas Solar Festival

Saturday 30 July @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Take a sacred walk through hidden London with me.

Traveled by generations of Monarchs to know themselves. We will walk the same journey, use the potential of pilgrimage and walking to access our freedom at this solar festival of Lammas or Lughnasadh.

Lammas is a time of transformation, when we see all of nature ripening and we prepare ourselves to bring what we have worked on to a place of fruition. July is seen as a time of preparation for this festival and a time for breath, to allow all that we have worked on to form itself before we bring our attention to ripening what we have worked hard to manifest. This pilgrimage allows us, through owning sovereignty, to receive the freedom to continue this journey to our highest potential.

Pilgrimage

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 Westminster Abbey. 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.

Accessibility:


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

The walk will take part no matter the weather and tickets are non-refundable.
