Come join Geraldine and Richard in their 17th year of taking overseas spiritual journeys.
Following the profound guidance of Archangel Michael, we travel the British Isles in search of mysterious Britain.  We guide you to unique and rarely visited mystical places.brideswell

The Chalice Well in Glastonbury is the ‘holy of holies’ of healing wells.  It is to this Isle of Avalon that Joseph of Arimathea, brought the Chalice Cup from The Last Supper.  By placing it down this well, the waters were imbibed with healing properties.  The gardens surrounding the well are surely the most beautiful in England.
The Glastonbury Zodiac surrounds the town, and all is overseen by the stunning Tor, sacred to Archangel Michael.
Glastonbury is said to be the heart chakra of the world.

We visit several quiet and mystical holy wells – connect with major ley lines of Light, ”once trod by angels”; seek out power sites sacred to Druids, Celts and Pagans.

The ancient town of Bath has healing spa waters connected to both Roman and Celtic goddess’s. We visit the beautiful city of Wells with its medieval streets and stunning Cathedral. These places both have a fundamental association with healing waters.

Merlin and King Arthur are ever present in Cornwall.  There are 27 Merlin sites in Cornwall alone and we visit the most important of them including King Arthur’s castle at Tintagel and Merlin’s cave on Tintagel beach – the place of ‘the birthing of Merlin’.   skellig

Cornwall is rich in sacred sites and druidic groves, standing stones, holy wells and rocky islands, the most famous of which is
St Michael’s Mount
, a holy island off Cornwall’s coast. 
Archangel Michael appeared here in the 5th Century,
instructing the fishermen to sanctify this island to the Archangel.Lostwithiel and Temple Church on the moors have strong Knight’s Templar connection.

In Dublin we visit The Long Room, and see The Book of Kells. The green and verdant St. Bride’s Well lies just outside of Dublin, gently illumined by her gracious light.

We cross Ireland to Skellig Michael.  The rock rises dramatically out of the Atlantic Ocean in the shape of an Archangel!  Climbing the swathe of grass known as ‘Christ’s Saddle’, we ascend to the ‘beehive’ shaped stone huts that the monks built in the 4th century. 

Many are the saints that have visited this sacred isle, including St. Bride, St. Columba and St. Patrick.  This place is strong, powerful, Mi-cha-el, undoubtedly one of the most stunning places in the world.

PLUS:
A workbook containing research and information - magazine articles written by Richard and Geraldine
and instructions for the journey ahead.
Each traveler also receives; crystals, journal, astrology chart, maps, references, book list.

PLUS:
This is no ordinary journey.  Every step of the way there will be informative talks from Geraldine and Richard including;
 
‘Druids, Celts and Pagans’
‘Merlin – Archetype of Magic, Power and Wizardry’
‘The Goddess and the Landscape in Ireland’ – see article
‘Archangel Michael – Prince of Heaven’
‘The Grail Quest – King Arthur and Queen Guinevere’
‘Knight’s Templar’
‘Lines of Light, Leys, Sacred Sites and Convergences’
‘The Green Man and the Dragon in the British Isles’

Archangel Michael has four major sanctuaries in Britain and Europe – the ancient pilgrims, God willing, would travel
to each of these four sites in the faith that this would prepare them for heaven.  In 2013 we go to two sites,
Skellig Michael and St Michael’s Mount.  In 2014 we hope we are graced with the guidance to travel to Mont St Michel
in northern France, and Monte Angelo in Italy.
