2017 Glastonbury Pilgrimage
This life changing pilgrimage to Glastonbury UK was carefully crafted with the greatest transformation in heart. We began on the Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse of August 7th, 2017. Our 16 day journey spanned significant energetic portals including the Lion’s Gate on August 8th and culminated with the Leo New Moon Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st. This was a rare time on planet Earth and we intentionally used this energy for our soul growth in service to humanity.
Our anchor was Healing Waters Sanctuary, which sits upon Wearyall Hill. Wearyall Hill in ancient mythos is known to be the site where the priestesses of Avalon dwelled. From this base we had the honor of exploring other sacred sites in Glastonbury including the Tor, the Chalice Well Gardens, the Abbey, the Magdalen Chapel, Gog and Magog. We journeyed to other holy places including Avebury’s Sanctuary, Silbury Hill and Processional Way, Cornwall’s Tintagel Castle, Merlin's Cave and St. Nectan's Glen, as well as Stanton Drew, Dartmoor and Stonehenge.
Journey with us through the mists, into the realm of magic. . .
Our pilgrimage to this ancient holy site allowed our bodies to connect with the elements of this sacred land. As our nervous systems settled deep into the land and interwove with one another we opened a space to ground into the Earth and her sacred meridians, known as ley lines. Our bodies are a mirror for Her body, and during our time together we had an opportunity to feel into Gaia’s bones, waters and blood, and transmute this awareness for planetary healing.
In ceremony and sisterhood we entered the heart chakra of Earth with the prayer of truly communing with Gaia. The Daoists revere the heart as the organ of the body that one may travel through time and space into other dimensions. As we intentionally enter Gaia’s portal, our potential is infinite.
Glastonbury is a sacred and timeless sanctuary that has been known across millennia by countless names. Some call her Avalon, mystical realm of the ancient ones. Many a being have whispered across the vast marshlands that once surrounded this majestic place, calling her ‘Ynys Afallon’ the Island of Apples, and ‘Ynys Witrin’ the Isle of Glass, while some view her as the crown of Arthurian Legends.
We began on the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse with the intention of utilizing the power of the lunar energies. As we acclimated to the magic of Somerset, we drew roots into the astrological landscape of Glastonbury by creating sacred space upon Wearyall Hill. This holy site was said to have been the ground upon which Joseph of Arimathea and Mary Magdalene landed when they first arrived to the ‘holiest Erthe in England’.
Once, long ago, when Avalon was an island shrouded in mist and magic amidst the Bristol Channel, this sacred hill was the resting site of pilgrims and priestesses alike. During the evening we will celebrated this powerful day of prosperity, known as the Lion’s Gate with a private ceremony at the Chalice Well Gardens. This is the iron rich red spring which compliments the White Spring.
As a mirror to the labyrinth of life, we began our spiral outwards from the Island of Apples to other holy sites on our pilgrimage. On day three we made our first journey to the powerful village of Avebury. We explored The Sanctuary, West Kennet Avenue, Silbury Hill and two crop circles.
The sanctuary of the Chalice Well Gardens provided us rejuvenation to go deep into the study of the magic, folklore and history of this sacred land. We discussed the mysteries of Glastonbury Zodiac etched into the landscape, explored the science and magic of Earth’s Ley Lines, healing waters, and the significance of the Holy Sites that we visited.
Diving deeper into our innate unique ability to connect with Earth, we visited Burrow Mump. This hill is directly aligned to and South west of Glastonbury’s Tor, and inspired a continuation of our study into the St. Michael and St. Mary Ley Lines that unite the sacred landscape of Britain. From there we traveled to Avebury’s Divine Masculine counterpoint, Stanton Drew Stone Circle. Our intention was to tune into this land and work with the polarities of the landscape, uniting Divine Feminine with Divine Masculine.
We will toured the ruins of the Glastonbury Abbey and had an opportunity to meditate upon the grounds, delving beyond the mists, into the hidden power of the Abbey.
Dartmoor is one of the last truly wild expanses in Britain. We had the great honor of connecting with the elementals amidst the magical Dartmoor Forests. We activated the Earth Grid at one of the many untouched and almost forgotten stone circles dotting this incredible landscape. The power, majesty and mysteries these ancient moors holds is palpable.
We visited the famous ‘Gog and Magog’ trees which rest upon the base of the Tor to tune into the wisdom that these ancient trees wish to impart. We continued our journey into artistic expression and the power of dreams as a vehicle for our intuition.
In Cornwall we had the opportunity to see the wild beauty of this west coastal area that is reminiscent of the Mediterranean. We pilgrimed into the times of King Arthur and Tintagle, the ruins of a castle known to be Arthur's birthplace. We met the etheric body of Master Merlin in Merlin's cave, meditating and relaxing in a these timeless spaces. Our day culminated at St. Nectan’s Glen, a sacred waterfall of purification of the ages, and finally we traced the Labyrinth of Tintagel carved into stone over 6,000 years.
Visiting Bride’s Mound in Glastonbury, we tune into the goddess Brigit to whom this holy hill was dedicated and continue to explore our connection to the Divine Feminine and the Goddess.
An early morning private ceremony within the standing stone circle of Stonehenge culminates our Earth Work by utilizing all of the skills and tools that we have amassed throughout our pilrgrimage. We will cleanse this energetic vortex, using sound and crystal-grid technology to anchor our ascended selves into this portal. Stonehenge is a doorway for time and space to collapse and become one. We are honored as stewards of this land to share, align and gift Gaia with the Divine Feminine frequency at this sacred site.
Traveling north we complete this energy by visiting the ancient Uffington White Horse etched into the landscape. Dedicated in antiquity to Goddess Rhiannon we will channel her frequency and learn about how we can continue to activate the Earth Grid as we journey through life.
We ventured back to Avebury, this time deeply in tune with the land. As we pilgrimed the Avebury Procession, we called in the ones who've come before us with sacred intention. This was a powerful day of meditation and alignment for the Total Solar Eclipse which graced us with a deep sweetness on Monday, August 21. We spent our final day together in a heart centered honoring of one another and deep meditation.
