AVALON SAMHAIN RETREAT

29 October – 3 November 2020

BY WENDY ANDREW

If you feel that you have a special connection to Avalon and you feel that you are being called,  then this journey may be just what is needed. Avalon is calling all of her people to come and help prepare the earth for the changes that are already happening. Avalon is the mythical land known from many legends. Avalon brings transformation and love in a time of confusion and chaos. It is time to unleash her feminine power to bring the love into the world, a world ready for change. Avalon brings out the magic in everyone and if you are hearing her call, then you know it is time. This journey takes place as we enter the Samhain season, festival of death and rebirth and the chance to connect with our ancestors.

THE TOR

We invite you to experience the magic of Avalon for yourself and to come with us to the south west of England, where we will follow the legends and visit power places of Avalon. We will take you to Glastonbury, a spiritual place of pilgrimage, also called The Isle of Avalon. There you will climb the Tor, a natural hill with an amazing vortex energy and also entrance to the land of the fairies and the underworld, where according to Legends, King Arthur is resting until he returns. We will visit the ruins of the abbey, once the religious centre of England, where once the graves of Arthur and Guinevere were discovered, or so it is claimed.

Avalon is also the centre of the Goddess, where she has imprinted her heart and soul into the land. The priestesses of Avalon still hold their ceremonies to honour the Goddess and they bring the message of feminine spirituality. You will feel the embrace of the Goddess and your heart will be touched by the soul of Avalon.

Stone Circles

We will then visit the largest stone circle of Europe in Avebury. Avebury is located in Wiltshire and this is the area where most of the crop circles are found. Near Avebury there is the man made hill of Silbury and an ancient burial mount, called West Kenneth Long Barrow. Also Stonehenge is on our list, because you cannot miss that ancient site.

This journey can be your personal quest to your holy grail. We will take time and give you time to go within yourself and contact your soul. Be prepared to follow your intuition and open up to magical encounters.

Your guide is Manon Tromp

I call myself a Earth Priestess – my work is to connect people again with the earth and to bring her life energy back into their lives. We are part of this Earth, but we do forget because of the demands  of modern society which is based on unnatural principals. We can loose ourselves and not know anymore what really is important – the Earth will always let you remember who you are and why you are here. I work with ceremony, ritual, the Celtic Wheel of the Year, the Elements and divination, meditation and sound. I organise sacred tours and workshops to bring you back to your sacred self. I hope to connect with you here in Avalon.
