Stonehenge Solstice Pilgrimage

Event details

Web Page
Our pilgrimage will commence around a big warm fire to herald the Solstice tide together, upon the banks of the Avon, by a sacred place known as the 'Stonehenge Spring’. This incredible wellspring is one of the reasons why Stonehenge came to be and is not open to the general public (on private land), granting us a one off experience. It is a place that ancient Britons worshipped and made offerings....the waters being full of many ancient artefacts some from 10,000 years ago. Set within an enchanting glen we will make a mistletoe ceremony, bringing us into alignment with the blessings of the season with the all-healing warming essence of the golden bough.. From then on we will walk the ways of the Salisbury planes visiting the kings of olde and the trees of Yule, the Yew as we rejoice in the rebirth of the sun and the coming of the new year. At Stonehenge we will watch the setting of the sun encapsulated perfectly in the doorway of of the central trilithon where the sunlight pierces the altar stone within the megalithic circle of stones. Aligning our pilgrimage and prayers during this magical moment. As dusk falls by the stones, torches and lanterns will be lit with flame, to celebrate our way across the silvery planes back home. Welcomed back with a roaring hot fire and mulled mead to complete our journey of ~ the Solstice dream.
