AVALON PILGRIMAGE |
England and Scotland - July 2013
The Rebirth of the Golden Grail Within.
This pilgrimage will be infused with potent energy while pilgrimaging on sacred grid/acupuncture points of the Michael-Mary Lines while honoring the pristine new energy of Oneness and the Vision of Paradise for a new world. We honor the ancient Goddesses, the original Maidens, and the Graceful Guardians of the Grid. We also equally honor all the Kings, Knights, Guardians of Chivalry, and protectors of the Holy Grail within us all.
Exploring the Sacred Sites of ... Glastonbury Tor, private time in Chalice Well, a private ceremony in Stonehenge, Glastonbury Abby, St John's Church, Avebury, Silbury Hill, Kings Arthur's Cadbury Castle, Crazy Crop Circles, the Michael-Mary Lines (a.k.a. the Dragon Lines), Burrow Mump, St Michael's Chapel of Brentor, King Arthur's Tintagel, Merlin's Cave, St. Nectan's Glen, The Hurlers, the amazing crystal Duloe Stone Circle, and more as time permits . . . plus surprises and magic.

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.|
One day in a sacred site
is worth a thousand days of meditation.
A paraphrase of an ancient Tibetan saying
Sometimes, the further we go from civilization... The more civilized we become...
Someday, if you are lucky,
you’ll return from a thunderous journey
trailing snake scales, wing fragments
and the musk of Earth and moon.
Eyes will examine you for signs
of damage, or change
and you, too, will wonder
if your skin shows traces of fur, or leaves,
if thrushes have built a nest
of your hair, if Andromeda
burns from your eyes.
Do not be surprised by prickly questions
from those who barely inhabit
their own fleeting lives, who barely taste
their own possibility, who barely dream.
If your hands are empty, treasureless,
if your toes have not grown claws,
if your obedient voice has not
become a wild cry, a howl,
you will reassure them. We warned you,
they might declare, there is nothing else,
no point, no meaning, no mystery at all,
just this frantic waiting to die.
And yet, they tremble, mute,
afraid you’ve returned without sweet
elixir for unspeakable thirst,
without a fluent dance or holy language
to teach them, without a compass
bearing to a forgotten border where
no one crosses without weeping
for the terrible beauty of galaxies
and granite and bone. They tremble,
hoping your lips hold a secret,
that the song your body now sings
will redeem them, yet they fear
your secret is dangerous, shattering,
and once it flies from your astonished
mouth, they–like you–must disintegrate
before unfolding tremulous wings.
The Return by Geneen Marie Haugen
A pilgrimage is a ritual journey
with a hallowed purpose.
Every step along the way has meaning.
The pilgrim knows that
life giving challenges will emerge.
A pilgrimage is not a vacation;
it is a transformational journey
during which significant change takes place.
New insights are given.
Deeper understanding is attained.
New and old places in the heart are visited.
Blessings are received and healing takes place.
On return from the pilgrimage,
life is seen with different eyes.
Nothing will ever be quite the same again.
Macrina Wiederkehr from Behold Your Life.
Pilgrimage is an art which brings peace to the soul.
Pilgrims are bearers of love, which they carry to special places of the Earth.
By holding a joyful consciousness of this love and of the beauty of these places,
pilgrims encourage the natural energies of the earth to flow harmoniously.
Pilgrims are guided by a wisdom based on both intuition and an understanding of the
energy routes and sacred places of power in the world.
The gifts of love, hope and joy are inestimable.
They have the power to be a friend with the earth,
with the divine and with all levels of life.
~ Peter Dawkins
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.
The person who travels to a sacred site is not the same person when they return home.
They have been awakened to a greater respect for the planet,
accelerating a beautiful unity and harmony between all living people, cultures, and religions.
The ancient one who created these sites help us remember that this is the most important truth there is.
~ Aluna Joy Yaxkin
"A pilgrimage is not unlike participating in ritual or ceremony: we step outside of time,
between the worlds, where the rules are different and anything can happen.
In sacred space, we are receptive to the voices and presence of the
Goddess in a way that we are not in our mundane surroundings.
We have an expectation of experiencing that deep pleasure we call joy.
Away from home, away from daily responsibilities....
opens up enormous space for the Divine to enter."
