Sacred Avalon 2018 ~ England Pilgrimage
With Aluna Joy and Marcus Mason
July 4th - 20th, 2018 An in depth, heart-activating, Sacred Avalon Pilgrimage
into a vast, new timelessness and expansion of the living codes of the heart.
Exploring these Sacred Sites:
Bury St. Edmunds Cathedral/Abbey/St. Mary's Church, Rollright Stone Circle, Wayland Smithy, Dragon Hill, Uffington White Horse, Gog & Magog, The Town of Glastonbury, Glastonbury Tor, Wearyall Hill, A private visit in Chalice Well, St. John's Baptist Church, Glastonbury Abbey, A private visit INSIDE Stonehenge, Avebury Stone Circle, Archangel Michael's Chapel of Brentor, The English Crystal Barn (great energy here), Fairy filled St. Nectan's Glen, The Hurlers Stone Circle, Rocky Valley Labyrinth, King Arthur's Tintagel, Magical Merlin's Cave, The White Quartz Stone Circle of Duloe, St. Michael's Mount, Men-An-Tol, Boscowan-Un, Merrivale, Old Sarum and the famous Salisbury Cathedral . . . and more as time permits . . . plus surprises and magic.
This pilgrimage offers an opportunity to build a new, strong, spiritual and physical foundation. The codes of nature are changing, and there is much to learn. On this pilgrimage, we will learn about and assimilate these new vibrations and frequencies, both physically and spiritually. These will work on us on a deep DNA level. They can heal and restore us to our original Celestial and Authentic Selves as well as help us bring about balance to this sacred Earth. This pilgrimage will lovingly increase our mystical and alchemical gifts and upgrade our original human space suit. We intend that this pilgrimage and our group's collective activities will aid in healing the great separation of the current times . . . the illusion of separateness and the death of empathy. The Holy Grail within us has always been with us. Now it is time to remember and put into practice this great inner wisdom that is humanity's God given birth right.
This merging of the mind (wisdom) and heart (creative power) creates a new, human collective, unified geometry and sacred Earth. With the merging of the Mind and Heart, there returns an alchemy needed to create from the Mind/Heart simultaneously. This work has been mirrored in the past through numerous Master Teachers and sacred lineage lines that hold the Divine Blueprint. This enables new codes to emanate through us and resurrect our Christ Body and restore our ORIGINAL, COLLECTIVE, DIVINE BLUEPRINT.
We will draw from our ancient lineages, that are alive in our DNA, which have been brought forth from the ancient times of Lemuria, Atlantis, Egypt, Maya, Inca, Druid, Pre-Celtic Orders, Star Elders, other Celestial Sources, and many more holy lineages. These holy strands of DNA are alive in us and have only been held back from us by the illusion of linear time. These will manifest as a natural and intuitive alchemical process. These frequencies and greatly protected and can only be activated and accessed through the sacred heart. Our sacred hearts are connected to collective consciousness. What we do together as ONE will send strong healing and realignment frequencies to heal the heart of humanity.
It is time for the healing of humanity's Heart and the restoration of global empathy. These are the final pieces to our living mastery and ascension. This humble and loving quest is the focus for this pilgrimage. We hope that you will join us.
The only prerequisite to joining us on this pilgrimage is to arrive with an open heart. If you are feeling the heart call to join us, then you have been divinely invited. No one arrives on one of our pilgrimages by mistake. You have been called. Now ... will you answer that call?
What are Ley Lines?
Earth's Ley lines were called 'Dragon Lines' by the Chinese centuries ago. Now they are more popularly known as Rainbow Serpent lines. When several 'Dragon Lines' cross each other at a given point (node), their energy creates a massive vortex of energy. When ley lines are worked, loved and honored in a conscious way, not only does the Earth's sacred balance come further into harmony, but also the pilgrims working the ley lines become more balanced as well. The sacred traveler is healed as well as the Earth's life giving grid. It is a powerful symbiotic relationship between the Earth and humankind. On this pilgrimage, we will work with many such ley lines and nodes in England on the Michael and Mary ley lines. The Mary ley line undulates and crosses over the Archangel Michel ley line many times over in the England landscape making the Michael-Mary ley lines the most powerful ley lines on Earth. The Michael and Mary Line is part of the Rainbow Serpent that travels throughout England linking many sacred sites . . . from Carn-Les_Boel at the south-western tip of Cornwall, up through St Michael's Mount; Glastonbury, Avebury and many other sacred sites; From there, onwards up to Bury St. Edmunds, and finally to Hopton-on-Sea where it goes into the North Sea.
The major center crossing point of dozens of major ley lines, including the Michael/Mary ley line, is in Glastonbury, England. Glastonbury represents the HEART CHAKRA but also the THIRD EYE. An overwhelming amount of ley lines converge in Glastonbury, and you can feel it. Thus we can see (third eye chakra) from our heart (heart chakra) on this major ley line grid. In Glastonbury, the Michael and Mary lines pass through Glastonbury Abbey, Chalice Well, the Tor, Wearyall Hill, St. John the Baptist Church, etc... before moving on to the Avebury stone circle complex, and further over the English landscape. Earth's energy system is remarkably similar to our own human form. Our connection to the Earth is far more powerful than we realize, especially when our heart beat and third eye is not only held in the landscape but in our consciousness as a spiritual pilgrim.

OUR AVALON GUIDES
ALUNA JOY was literally born awake and in the company of her guides, the Star Elders. Today, she has evolved into an internationally known author, spiritual life coach, sacred site guide, alternative historian, ordained minister and modern mystic. In the Inca world, Aluna is considered a Qawaq (cow-wak), a clairvoyant or seer of present living energy. Aluna acts as a spiritual archaeologist using her clairvoyant / clairsentient gifts to excavate messages from the masters of ancient, enlightened cultures to uncover what affect this has on humanity and the collective consciousness. Aluna coined the term "sacred site junkie", because she is one herself.
After her first trip to Tulum, Mexico, her life changed dramatically, and she was sent on an entirely different path in her life. Since this time, her work has been influenced by uncountable shamanic experiences in sacred sites of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Peru, Bolivia, Egypt, Jordan, Greece, England, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand.
Aluna has been leading groups in the Maya world since 1986, the Inca world since 1996, the Egyptian world since 2008, and the Avalon worlds since 2007. Aluna offers Star Elder Sessions, formulates Sacred Site Essences and a "by donation" e-newsletter. She is the author of "Mayan Astrology", and her articles have been published worldwide. She is well known for her down to earth, accepting attitude that makes everyone feel like they have come home. She inspires and encourages others to recognize and accept their own authentic divinity and connection to the Creator.
"Our groups are family, and each one is a teacher and also a student. We work together as a team to unravel the sacred mysteries of life."
MARCUS MASON, our local guide, Marcus Mason has practised and taught Soul-Centred Astrology for more than 30 years in the UK and in Ireland, Europe and USA. He has also practised Traditional Acupuncture for 30 years and is a Member of the British Acupuncture Council (MBAcC).
For the last 10 years, with his partner Sue Weaver, a crystal and shamanic healer and teacher, he has been researching the relationships and energetic effects of the planetary movements upon the body's energy systems and Chakras; what has emerged is a profound and elegant system of meditation, informed by more than 30 years of working with Astrology, Acupuncture and Earth Energies.
Marcus has been fascinated by Earth Energies and the purpose of Britain's ancient Sacred Sites since his early twenties. As his understanding grew, he came to see how the sacred places of Mother Earth are like the acupuncture points on the human body, and that many sacred sites are linked in similar ways to the points on the body's acupuncture meridians. On the Earth, these are the Ley Lines and the great planetary Dragon Lines, which encircle the planet.
In the 1990's he co-founded a group, which worked with planetary healing meditations inside Stonehenge, at every Full Moon for 4 years from 1994 - 1998. Since then, he has worked with many groups on journeys for personal and planetary healing in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Belgium, Denmark, the Canaries, South Africa, Alaska and Hawaii.
Marcus combines his understanding of Acupuncture, Astrology, Earth Energies and the human Chakra system, working with people at sacred sites to enable personal and planetary healing. When we work together in this way at a sacred site, it is inevitable that the healing energies of the place will have an effect at a personal level and that the energies of the sacred site will also magnify our healing intention and enable healing for the greater whole of humanity and Mother Earth.
Marcus lives in Cornwall, is one quarter Cornish and regards Cornwall as his spiritual home. He is a father to one son, and a grandfather to one grandson (so far).
Aluna Joy will be sharing her present moment clairvoyant messages and activations from various inner plane guides along with her ever present Star Elders and ol' pal Archangel Michael. Marcus Mason will be lending his extensive knowledge of the sacred grids lines of Avalon, astrology and will also be offering heart-felt ceremony and meditations.
It is a blessing to have Raphael as our group guardian. He is an ego-less and humble light worker of little words. He has been involved with energy work the majority of his life and has studied a variety of healing energy modalities including QiGong, Quantum Touch, Reiki and Kahuna Ancient Rainbow Conscious Healing (ARCH). His spiritual path has provided him with a deep humbleness and appreciation of all life and Mother Earth, as a direct result of his relationship with the Blackfeet, the Ojibwa and the Lakota Nations. Raphael feels it is a blessing for him to be able to serve our groups with great attention to detail and logistics. Raphael and his life partner, Aluna Joy, reside in Sedona, Arizona.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE MIDDLEWICK HOLIDAY COTTAGES IN ENGLAND:
The Middlewick Holiday Cottages are self-catering cottages, most with little kitchens. They have an unparalleled location at the back of The TOR in a quiet rural location and within easy reach of Glastonbury's sacred sites and town. You can actually take a long walk to the village from here. There is a beautiful apple orchard behind it, and the sacred oaks of Gog and Magog are on the way as you walk to The Tor. We also have the benefit of the function room for group gatherings. The accommodations are simple and mildly rustic with shared bathrooms, but it will be worth it to stay within the energy field of The Tor for the four full days that we are in Glastonbury. Middlewick has a friendly atmosphere, and is very affordable compared to other accommodations, so all of us will be saving money over all. We also have hired an amazing chef who will be catering to us.
Middlewick Holiday Cottages are able to accommodate 30 people in the available cabins, but a few of our guests may have to sleep on fold-out beds, in the lounges of some of the cabins. The more couples that we book, the less need there will be for folding beds. We will do our best to avoid this as much as possible. When you register for this pilgrimage, you can talk to Raphael who can inform you as to what rooms are still available before you send your deposits. Otherwise, he will place you in the best rooming situation possible. If you are wanting a single supplement, you will have a room to yourself here, but you will be sharing a cottage, and all bathrooms are shared. In the English countryside, the majority of the accommodations (guest-houses, small country hotels and bed-and-breakfasts) are for individuals, families and small groups of under 10 people. Middlewick has housekeeping at a minimal fee if you want your room cleaned. They also have self-serve laundry and an in-door, heated pool.
Remember, you are on a pilgrimage rather than a conventional tourist trip. You are going to the countryside of England and not boring, Americanized hotels. You are going to have an incredible and charming English experience. Our groups never want to leave here!
Reading / Media Suggestions Reading list ... if you so choose to prepare in this way.
With this said Aluna feels it is better to join us as a clean slate - like a child and read things after the pilgrimage.

Transcendent experiences are difficult and almost impossible to describe, because they are experienced from the Great Mystery of the Universal Heart. Once experienced, from this point on, it becomes our hearts calling to bring these experiences back into our material world. And if we are lucky enough to be able to anchor this indescribable extraordinary space, even ever if so briefly upon on our world, we know an echo of this divinity will reverberate on our Earth forever. ~ Aluna Joy
There are things that happen only once, and then again, never exactly the same way... things that only we experience. There is no way to predict when magic lands where we are. We just have to put ourselves out there and keep our eyes open, and feel blessed when we see receive gifts from spirit. These are experiences that no one else will ever see in the same way again.
We think, sometimes, there's not a dragon left.
Not one brave knight,
not a single princess gliding through secret forests ...
What a pleasure to be wrong.
Princesses, Knights, Enchantments and
Dragons, Mystery and Adventure ...
not only are they here-and-now,
they're all that ever lived on earth!
Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that
we've never lost the shield we need against dragons,
that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now
to change our world as we wish.
Intuition whispers true:
We're not dust, we're magic!"
~ Richard Bach
The Astrology of the Sacred Avalon Pilgrimage
by Marcus Mason
Tour Dates: July, 4 - 20, 2018
The astrological chart for this sacred pilgrimage has two prominent triangular Grand Trine patterns:
Grand Trines create harmony and balance within a particular element, having three (or more) planets evenly distributed, 60 degrees apart in each zodiac sign of the same element. One of the Grand Trines has planets evenly distributed in all the Earth signs; the other has planets evenly distributed in all the Water signs. Earth and Water complement each other; Earth contains Water and Water nourishes Earth. Earth represents the land through which we will travel, and which will hold us as we journey physically. Water represents our inner experiences and the emotional and spiritual transformations that we experience, as we journey inwardly.
The sacred landscape can teach us, opening us to new, powerful, healing experiences; our positive responses, and the love and gratitude that we feel for these experiences can help to heal the land where subtle Earth energies weave and flow through the sacred sites.
The Earth Grand Trine has Uranus conjunct Juno in Taurus, awakening us to what it means to be in right relationship with the physical Earth. Ceres in Virgo can help connect us deeply with the Spirit of Mother Earth. Retrograde Saturn in Capricorn will show us those places where we may have become stuck in the past, or where past-life experiences are preventing us from being fully in the present, so that we can truly live in right relationship with our Mother Earth and all beings.
The Water Grand Trine has the Sun in Cancer (in 11th house), which can enable each person to feel that they belong as part of the group, whilst also honouring their own individual journey and experiences. Jupiter in Scorpio (in 4th house) will allow us to feel safe to plunge into the depths of our being in order to allow healing to occur. Neptune conjunct the Moon in Pisces can enable us to transcend habitual personal emotional patterns, opening us to the possibilities for experiencing moments of spiritual insight and pure bliss.
The combination of Neptune with the other planets in this Water Grand Trine will make the veils between the worlds thinner at this time; this means that it should be easier to connect with the spiritual energies and spiritual guardians of the sacred sites that we visit. Meanwhile the planets in the Earth Grand Trine will help us to contain and process these higher frequencies, and keep us grounded.

A Merkaba is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms.)
Aside from Hopton on the Sea, BURY ST. EDMUNDS is on a ley line node of both the Michael and Mary ley lines. The Abbey at one time was one of the largest, richest and famous in Europe. It reached its height in the 16th century, just before the dissolution of monasteries by King Henry VIII. Both the Michael and Mary ley lines run into the abbey ruins. In the center of the Choir, as stated in the book The Sun and The Serpent, "they kissed", but they do not cross.
WAYLAND SMITHY is a powerful portal to other dimensions. According to sources, the the Michael and Mary ley line does not go through WAYLAND SMITHY. However, in 2015 a group member dowsed Wayland Smithy, and said that both lines came into Wayland Smithy, but they did not cross or meet. Perhaps the result of the ever changing ley lines in its location and width.
DRAGON HILL AND UFFINGTON WHITE HORSE
GLASTONBURY ABBEY is rich in myth, legend and some very sketchy history. Legend says that Joseph of Arimathea brought Jesus here and built the old Waddle and Daub church. In 1191, legend says monks found the buried remains of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere under two huge, black marble stones. Both King Arthur and Queen Guinevere were re-buried in 1278 just in front of the high altar in the Abbey in the presence of King Edward I and Queen Eleanor. Again, they were buried under the original two huge, black marble stones. In 1539, the Abbey was destroyed by King Henry VIII. Many think he destroyed it because he was insanely jealous as the Abbey had a huge pilgrimage appeal because King Arthur and Queen Guinevere were buried here. He didn't like being overshadowed by a king that had been dead for centuries. He wanted King Arthur's legacy to be wiped out. So along with destroying the Abbey, he also destroyed any recorded history about King Arthur and his visions of Camelot. It is here where the remaining fragments of Arthurian history ends.
The Michael ley line runs through Glastonbury Abbey, and then curves into the high altar, now marked out by a rectangle of turf (a former place of King Arthur's Tomb). The St. Mary's Chapel has always been acknowledged as the 'Mother Church' of Britain - the earliest site of the first Christian church, allegedly founded by Joseph of Arimathea and his 12 disciples shortly after the crucifixion. The St. Mary's chapel altar marks the precise spot where the Michael ley line and the Stonehenge ley line cross. The Mary ley line breaks into 2 streams and flows around King Arthur's Tomb, and then merges back together running down the center of the church. The Mary line then flows right along St. Mary's chapel, across the altar in the below-ground crypt and out through the west wall.
CHALICE WELL is linked to Christian and Arthurian legend, and is a timeless and sacred place that is full of legend, symbolism, sacred geometry and tangible healing energy. The well's location is at a crossing of twin currents of energy of the Michael and Mary ley lines. It is said that Chalice Well is considered to be the 6th Chakra, relates to the THIRD EYE and is a location of the legendary King Arthur's Court. Pilgrims have come here for centuries to drink the iron rich water and to meditate and be healed in its amazing gardens.
Both the Michael and Mary ley lines pass through Chalice Well and the area known as King Arthur's Court. The Mary line continues through the Lion Mask to the famous well-head. We have arranged a PRIVATE visit for our group to Chalice Well. This will give us the opportunity to be in ceremony and partake in the powerful healing waters within the footsteps of Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, the order of the (feminine) Mary's, Jeshua and Joseph of Arimathea.
SAINT MICHAEL'S TOR is the earthly representation of the planetary heart chakra, which spreads out through the landscape. A climb to the top of this hill is uplifting and clearing, and frees the soul. The Michael ley line runs around the base of the Tor, and then forms a complicated labyrinth running in and around the area of the Tor hill, up the hill and encircles the Tor itself. From here, the Michael ley line heads off to Avebury. The Mary ley line flows around the south base of the Tor and then rises up the side of the Tor. The Michael and Mary ley lines both form complimentary labyrinths around the Tor nesting it in very powerful energy.
ST. JOHN'S THE BAPTIST CHURCH - What has haunted us over the years was the energy that we felt from two extremely old, black, marble slabs which cover two oddly, unmarked tombs on either side of the high altar at St John's Church. Once we touched these black marble stones, what washed over us was a tangible presence of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and a strange familiar feeling of an idealistic time in Camelot in which there was honor and impeccability. The tomb covers are oddly devoid of any names or dates. It appears that the original markings were actually removed. Interesting.
The Michael line runs through the tower of St John's Church. It continues through the Lady Altar and the small St George's Chapel on the right-hand side of the main church. St. John's Church houses amazing stained glass windows encoded with hidden wisdom of King Arthur, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea. It even has, "hidden in plain sight", the graves of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. Although many dowsers have confirmed this fact, it is still controversial.

STONEHENGE - Religion in Neolithic times had similarities to pagan religions. The concept of Mother Earth and Father Sun overlap to some extent with the Archaeo-astronomers viewpoint. The concept of "energies" and the sitting of Stonehenge at the intersection of many Ley Lines also follows back to a nature theme. Today, the Druid religion uses Stonehenge as a key religious monument, though druidism itself wasn't around at the time of the Neolithic's.
AVEBURY is a place where megalithic stone circles and twelve ley lines meet and go down into the Earth. It also has a powerful dimensional doorway. It is said that people come to England for Stongehenge and find out that it was Avebury they came for! On this location on the Earth, there is a crossing point of the Michael and Mary ley lines.

ST. MICHAEL'S MOUNT ley line goes through the western side of the castle through a great rock, balanced on a horizontal platform. The Mary ley line goes through the eastern part of the building known as the Blue Drawing Rooms which was previously the site of a ruined Lady Chapel. On a prior pilgrimage, Aluna had tuned into the presence of Excalibur and an 8 foot tall knight. Below the terrace, an ancient cross was positioned exactly on the center of the flow. " ... tales tell of seafarers lured by mermaids onto the rocks, or guided to safety by an apparition of St Michael who appeared on the western side of the island, below where the entrance to the castle is today. It is a legend which has brought pilgrims, monks and people of faith to the island ever since, to pray, to praise and to celebrate. And four miracles said to have happened here during 1262 and 1263 would have only added to drawing pilgrims from far and wide." (from the St. Michael's Mount website . . . http://www.stmichaelsmount.co.uk/history-legends/myths-legends/)
MEN-AN-TOL is a sacred site that holds power not in what is solid, but what is it in the void . . . the empty space inside the stone circle. It is in the void space where all the magic happens. It is said that when one passes through this ancient circle, you can manifest healing, abundance, balance on all levels, and even fertility. "Traditional ceremony at Men-an-tol involved passing children three times through the holed stone and then drawing them along the grass three times in an easterly direction. This was thought to cure scrofula (a form of tuberculosis) and rickets. Adults seeking relief from rheumatism, spine troubles or ague were advised to crawl through the hole nine times against the sun. The holed stone also had prophetic qualities and, according to nineteenth-century folklorist Robert Hunt: If two brass pins are carefully laid across each other on the top edge of the stone, any question put to the rock will be answered by the pins acquiring, through some unknown agency, a peculiar motion." (from StonePages.com www.stonepages.com/england/menantol.html)
BOSCAWEN-UN is thought to be one of the great meeting places of the Druidic Bards. (Druidic Bards are a group of educated religious leaders, poets, story tellers and even doctors, that served among the Celtic people.) The Mary ley line crosses here through the middle of the stone circle. It is known to be one of largest gathering places for Druids on the Island of Britain. The circle is still an important spiritual meeting place for local Pagan groups, and ritual offerings are still placed here.
MERRIVALE has two beautiful stone avenues, a stone circle and large 'grandfather' stone. We love to let sSirit show us how to enter and what to do while there. We will be one body and acting from unity by this point!

As the journey grows, weaving you in with your companions ...
Why these people? This motley bunch, seemingly random, but assured, as boundaries soften,
ringing up all you need to see and feel, until we are all One Body - straggling or smiling
We are messengers for each other, like a medicine
We are stories to be told and heard: a cargo of treasure.
Our Amazing Pilgrimage Family
Our groups are like Sacred Sites . . . We never have enough time with them, and we always want to see them again : )
Sending so many heart felt thanks to our recent group to Sacred Scotland.
We had rainbows everyday as we discovered our stary heritage in ancient stones.
There was unmeasurable LOVE and mutual respect and holiness between us.
Divine grace, perfect timings, deep soul healings, and mind boggling sequencing of events
