From the beginning of time, women have been healers, shamans, priestesses. They came together to heal, nurture, and to love.
In the ancient world, women did not share their inner world with their companions. They gathered in social circles, where they were safe to share their dreams, visions, experiences, desires, as well as their emotions. These social circles of sharing were the woman’s opportunity to express their soul and be nurtured.
Only the feminine understands the feminine. However in today’s world the sisterhood and union of the feminine have been compromise by competition between women.
Women are finding themselves unfulfilled, alone, frustrated, and disconnected. They are feeling something sacred is missing in their life.
Now we are being called to return to the ancient feminine ways of sharing and expressing from our soul.
Now we are being called to return the ancient feminine ways of sharing and expressing from our soul. Being part of a women's circle is a cornerstone to stepping back into the divine feminine power.
I invite you to join us for a sacred journey of sisters who gather from all across the globe. Journey to a place of surrender where through love, and sharing, we will experience divine wisdom.
Spaces are limited, send us a message reserving your space in the followingretreat.
Explore London before the oficial opening of our journey. Our journey officially starts ..., however you can choose to arrive early in London to rest after long international flight and also to explore it for few days. I suggested The Tower London Hotel, located at St Katharine's Way, London, England, E1W 1LD, United Kingdom. It is well located as a place for us all to meet and adventure a little in London. This is optional and no agenda or set schedules are planned.
Day 1 Monday After breakfast we leave London to Radstock, in the way we will stop at beautiful Stourhead where we will officially open the sacred space of our circle. We should be in Radstock at around 6:00pm to settle into our home/hotel for the next 6 nights. Sweet Dreams!
Day 2 Tuesday
Today we start our Time-Traveling in Avalon!
Our journey will take us to sacred sites and beyond... We open our journey at Bride's Mound which is a holy place, said to be where St. Brigid (Brigid - Goddess of Healing, Smithcraft, Poetry, Wells and Springs) who visited and spent some time there in an oratory dedicated to Mary Magdalene. There was an old chapel on the top of this small hill which said to contain possessions left by St. Brigit when she left for Ireland including a necklace, a bag for collecting herbs and her bell. There is a long history of connection between Glastonbury and Ireland beginning with the Goddess Brigit and continuing into Christian Times.
We will start our pilgrimage walking up to Weary Hill onto the top of swan’s head (One of the Power animal of Goddess) and visiting the Holy Thorn, a magic tree said to be planted there by Joseph of Arimathea where we can tie ribbons with our wishes.
We will carry on walking down the hill towards the Bride’s Mound. This is an old way to reach the mound where once upon a time, one would have get on a boat of reach Bride’s Mound. Today, we can walk there. Bride’s Mound is a place of power and deep connection with Earth and it is in alignment with the Tor. A small head of well dedicated to St.Brigit is nearby on the river Brue, a river also dedicated to Goddess. Here we will honour Great Mother, Mother Earth, Banbha – Goddess of Earth, connecting deep to ancestral lines. We then break for lunch
The afternoon continue our journey through the Mysteries of Avalon meeting both sacred springs, the female and male energies and a meditation walk through the gardens of the Chalice Well to experience the energies of the Deep Feminine. We will connect to the trees, flowers, herbs and Symbol of Vesica Piscis Power and do a meditation at the head of the well to connect with the sacredness of the Divine Feminine in this time of Beltane, where the wheel of the year is at full Spring and Goddess is called Rhiannon, the Goddess of Love & Sacred Sexuality, wear something red, to connect with the red thread of our mother lines and to re-member who we are and that we are all connected, we will gather in circle and call in our mother lines. Its a good day to reflect on your mother, grandmother, great grandmother or any female figure that has a special meaning to you. We then step into the next holy site in our pilgrimage, the White Spring Well House.
End of the we return to our hotel in Radstock. Free evening for integration and journaling. Sweet Dreams!

Day 6 Saturday
Ninety miles west of London and twenty miles north of Stonehenge stands Avebury, the largest known stone ring in the world. Older than the more famous Stonehenge, and for many visitors far more spectacular, the multiple rings of Avebury are cloaked with mysteries which archaeologists have only begun to unravel.
Our pilgrimage to Avebury and the ritual landscape of giant stone circles and avenues will be guided by the leading authority on the geodetic system of earth eneries Maria Wheatley. Maria is a second-generation dowser, she was taught how to decode the land by her late father, Dennis Wheatley, who was considered to be one of the UKs top Master Dowsers. We will ritually enter the stones, and explore its powerful energy transmitions while attuning to the wisdom its hold.
We discover the secrets of Avebury as I discovered a sacred lunar Goddess alignment at Avebury. We explore the reconstructed sector and the non reconstruction sections. Explore the deep inner waters produced by Gaia which I call yin water and the energy pattern this underground water emits to yang underground water whith falls as rain.Cleansing our body water.
We will cleanse our own body water via connecting with the sacred yin waters of Avebury, and make our own energetic water essence, something we can take home to carry on body water and aura cleansing.
Leys and yin and yang earth energies We explore the stones'energies and the yin and yang earth energies that encoil a ley line called St Michael. We will also explore the healing life enhancing earth energies of the west Kennet long barrow that predates Avebury stone circles by one thousand years.
Only 1500 meters south of the main Avebury rings stands Silbury Hill, the largest, and perhaps the most enigmatic, of all megalithic constructions in Europe. Crisscrossing the surrounding countryside are numerous meandering lines of standing stones and mysterious underground chambers, many positioned according to astronomical alignments.
Among the ancient and sacred sites of England, West Kennet Long Barrow is still home to spirits and mystery, a portal into the underworld, the place of ancestral energies and the Crone Goddess.
Situated across the highway from Silbury Hill (the largest prehistoric mound in Europe) and a little over a mile from Avebury (the largest stone circle in the world--two of the most sacred sites in England), West Kennet Long Burrow pre-dates the creation of both Stonehenge and Avebury. A Neolithic site, West Kennet was probably a communal or clan project around 3250-3700 BCE. Three hundred-thirty feet long, this is the largest long barrow in England and Wales and was used not only as a burial shrine but also a community focal site for ritual gatherings. The layout of the shrine consists of a stone lined corridor with five chambers (two on each side with the fifth at the end of the corridor), in what J.D. Wakefield compared to a "pregnant squatting goddess". These Neolithic sites were constructed to symbolize the Earth Mother. The dead interred here so that they may be reborn again in another life. It is likely that West Kennet Long Barrow’s primary function was to "provide a womb from which the dead ancestors could be reborn".
Here, in one of the richest in sacred sites in England and in the lay line that stretch from St. Michael’s Mount on the westernmost coast, through Glastonbury, Avebury, Stonehenge, Royston Cave, Bury and Hopton on the opposite side of England, we will seat in meditation and sound healing work ... breathing in the process of death and rebirth of belief and experieces. Allowing the mystical process of life to move through us.
Free evening for journaling, integration and meditating .Sweet Dreams!
Day 7 Sunday

Day 8 Monday
After our time immersed in the special land of Somerset we travel to to the kingdom of Cornwall. We arrive at Tintangel. The castle ruins which sit atop the cliffs hard the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. There have been few more evocative appealing stories throughout history than that of the young warrior king. With its call to the noble, the romantic, the courageous and the spiritual seeker in each of us how can we fail to be drawn to this legend? By walking this land on our own Grail quest we find answers, ofter in themes unlikely of places.
It may be down below on the beach in Merlin’s Cave, accessible only at low tide, or the beautiful White Lady Waterfall where the water flows down to the valley below. Or it may well be at Dozmary Pool, the home of the Lady of the Lake where we each received a gift from the Lady. Free evening. Sweet Dreams!
Day 9 Tuesday
St Nectan’s Glen woodland Walk to the Waterfall & Hermitage through an ancient woodland with ivy clad trees and along the banks of the River Trevillet as it sparkles and gurgles busily on it’s journey to the sea. A place where animals and birds play amid a mysticism of fairies and spirits, serenaded by the wonderful sound of bird song. Many myths and legends, from King Arthur and his knights to ghostly sightings, surround this place: but one undeniable fact is that it is a place of outstanding natural beauty. St Nectan’s Waterfall is in St Nectan’s Glen, an area of woodland in Trethevy near Tintagel, north Cornwall, stretching for around one mile along both banks of the Trevillet River. In the Cornish language St Nectan’s Glen is Glynn Nathan, meaning deep wooded valley of Nathan. The sixth-century Saint Nectan is believed to have sited his hermitage above the waterfall. According to legend, Saint Nectan rang a silver bell in times of stormy weather to warn shipping of the perils of the rocks at the mouth of the Rocky Valley.‘The sunset of life gave to the saint the spirit of prophecy, and he told his weeping followers that the light of their religion would grow dim in the land; but that a spark would for ever live amidst the ashes, and that in due time it would kindle into a flame, and burn more brightly than ever. His silver bell, he said, should never ring for others than the true believer. He would enclose it in the rock of the Kieve; but when again the true faith revived, it should be recovered, and rung, to cheer once more the land.One lovely summer evening, while the sun was slowly sinking towards the golden sea, St Nectan desired his attendants to carry him to the bank which overhung the “Kieve,” and requested them to take the bell from the tower and bring it to him. There he lay for some time in silent prayer, waiting as if for a sign, then slowly raising himself from the bed on which he had been placed, he grasped the silver bell. He rang it sharply and clearly three times, and then he dropped it into the transparent waters of the Kieve. He watched it disappear, and then he closed his eyes in death. On receiving the bell the waters were troubled, but they soon became clear as before, and the bell was nowhere to be seen.’“The child is not yet born who shall recover this treasure.” WRITTEN BY Austin Kinsley ON 20/09/15
