Sedona Pilgrimage 2017

Due to the political instability of the USA at the moment – we are moving this journey to May 2018

Sedona is a magical place located in the state Of Arizona in the USA. The red rocks of Sedona are famous and have a certain energy, that appeals to many people all over the world. In fact the whole of Sedona is one big power place with many vortex sacred sites. Everywhere you walk you will feel the special power and history of the old Native American tribes who used to live there. Their cave drawings and ruins of there houses show us that they were very wise and I consider them our teachers, our ancestors. During this pilgrimage we will connect with their spirits and will try to receive their wisdom and knowledge or at least awaken it in our selves.

We are children of the earth. Long ago it was very normal for us to find inspiration and healing at places with strong earth energy. The earth is calling us to get connected to these places and it has been a long time since we have listened. But deep in our heart we have not forgotten.”

We will take you to the power places in and around Sedona, places where you can have mystical contact with the spirit of the earth. Also we will take you to visit the Hopi and Navaho tribes and connect with their cultural heritage. We will finish our pilgrimage at the magnificent Grand Canyon where the power of the earth can be felt in all its splendour.

The web of life

The earth has an electromagnetic field which we can experience as the energy of the earth. Research has showed that our central nervous system is tuned to the earth frequency, the heart beat of the earth. By nature we have the ability to use our intuition to feel the earth energy and to understand it. The power places can help open up channels in our consciousness which enable us to gather new information and which have a healing effect on our body.

Spirit is an intelligent force and forms a web of life to which we are all connected. The waves of this web, are the electromagnetic lines that are all over the earth and which we call ley lines. These natural energy lines connect all power places and vortices. Where lines cross, that is where a power place exists. The web is like a group spirit for the inhabitants of the earth: it is a channel of information between spirits. We have forgotten how to tune into this, but the old nature tribes knew exactly how this worked and have passed on their knowledge through their traditions. The mystical traditions of by example The Celts, The Maya’s, The Native Americans and the Aboriginals, are starting to regain a place with a growing number of people. They feel the call of the earth to reconnect to their own source and visiting power places can help you do this.

Background

The Sedona Pilgrimage is an initiative of Manon Tromp, a Dutch writer, coach, singer and Celtic Earth Priestess who resides in Glastonbury in the Uk, also known as The Isle of Avalon. She is the writer of the book: “The Magic of Avalon” which has been published in the Netherlands and she has had her training in the Celtic traditions in Glastonbury. She was also the initiator of the book “Earth Women Speak” which has been published in the Netherlands and in which 13 women tell their views on the state of the earth and what they do about it. Manon works with Earth Women groups in the UK, Slovakia and the Netherlands; she is the organiser of the Earth Women Festival which takes place in different countries.  http://earthwomen.manontromp.com

Manon has experience as a travel guide and has organised many travels. Other travel guides who are involved in our travels, have a practical and spiritual background. They are specialists in the area of experiencing and sensing of the mystical power places and know the historical and/or mythical background of the places. They are grounded, much connected to the earth and capable of giving the right emotional support when needed. Visiting power places can release old patterns or issues: laughing, crying, screaming and meditating, it is all part of the journey. These travels are about discovering the magic of the power places and discovering the power in you.
