Spiritual journey to England
A spiritually oriented group tour by Sacred Earth Journeys of Vancouver is being offered to England this spring.
Guests will journey to Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury -- some of England's most famous ancient pilgrimage sites.
The tour will be led by Karen Rae Wilson, a Celtic singer and visionary, and the founder of Wisdom Culture Consulting.
The company is dedicated to "inspiring personal leadership and social change."
Wilson combines traditional knowledge with the input of indigenous elders around the world. She has sung internationally for such events as the United Nations Conference for Women in Beijing, The State of the World Forum in Belfast and the Future Visions Conference for the Millennium Summit in New York.
An accomplished writer and composer, she developed and toured the US with her one woman show, Many Women, One Voice.
Return to Avalon is a ten-day tour designed to honor the feminine, inspire personal revolution and become a personal change agent for planetary peace.
The tour includes a private evening at Stonehenge during the Wesak full moon.
On the itinerary are Glastonbury Abbey and Chalice Wells, Avebury stone circle, Silbury Hill, Salisbury Cathedral, Stourhead Gardens, Bath, London's Temple Church of the Knights Templar, Westminster Abbey and a farewell cruise on the Thames.
Throughout the tour, West will offer songs, stories, ceremonies and insights on how the knowledge and power of these sacred places can ignite both a personal sense of purpose and planetary change.
Participants will have free time for individual exploration and shopping in the countryside near Wells and in the heart of London.
More details may be found on Sacred Earth Journeys' website.
The tour begins at the CPR Steamship Terminal Building, located across the street from the BC Parliament Buildings pictured here. ©SueFrause...
