The workshops I’ll be doing at this weekend will be:

Sacred Places are found all over the world and in every spiritual tradition, but what is it about them that makes them so interesting? In this workshop we’ll start to explore their magic and purpose, and examine both the benefits and pitfalls of pilgrimage and visits to sacred sites. We will also work with a specific technique to journey in the inner world to sacred sites, and look at ways in which we can deepen our connections with them.

Hold on tight and brace yourself for a journey at break-neck speed through 45,000 years of English history, meeting a host of eccentric characters and inspired sages who have shaped the course of history and the development of medicine, science and art.

His story was amazing, beginning with early childhood experiences, a gap after puberty and then full bore back into it. This should be worth the price of the book alone (and don’t miss the conference coming up Feb 5-8 if you’re an East Coaster

    Sometimes it seems to me that the way people speak of as space alien abductions follows similar storylines of contacts with the Fae. Are the contacts the same, but our frame of reference fundamentally different for each age?


  2. […] some people pay to learn how to connect with the energies of ancient sites. For example, on Philip Carr-Gomm’s blog there is a post about Soul Companions, who offer you a weekend away in Dorset to learn some pretty […]
