Glenn and Cameron have over 20 years crop circle and sacred sites experience and immediate access to the information network that provides breaking news on the latest formations. Our itineraries are designed to be flexible with this in mind and we are able to visit new crop circles within hours of them forming, when their energy is strongest (providing farmers allow access). Glenn and Cameron lecture internationally on sacred sites, earth mysteries and crop circles and are the co-founders of Earth Spirit Conferences in the USA.

   

Detailed itinerary:

Day 1, Sun 20 July 

Meet at Heathrow airport at 11 AM. Travel in a comfortable minibus to our stay put hotel in Devizes, in the heart of crop circle country. Enjoy a wide selection of shops, cafes, restaurants, markets and pubs within walking distance, as our hotel is conveniently located right in the center of town. The majority of crop circles each year occur in the hills and fields within a 15-mile radius of our hotel.

After check in, enjoy lunch, rest up or explore the town before meeting the rest of the group.

Welcome dinner at the hotel

Day 2, Mon 21 July 

After a hearty breakfast and a short orientation meeting to acquaint you with the powerful earth energies, ancient sacred sites and remarkable crop circles in the area, we venture out to experience our first crop circle first-hand and the perfect opportunity to set your intentions for the journey ahead. Our expert tour guides, having been into hundreds of formations over 19 years, will show you what to look for and how to dowse for any present energies.  At various times during the tour, we will be joined by some of the top crop circle researchers who will share their views, knowledge and expertise with you. What better way to learn about this amazing phenomenon than by being in the circles in the fields and having experts on hand for guidance and information?

Own arrangements for dinner.

Day 3, Tues 22 July 

Today we immerse ourselves in Sacred Sites, starting with Avebury, the heart centre of megalithic Britain. Here, within the largest stone circle in the world, find the remains of two former stone circles, one solar and one lunar. All the sacred sites in this area centre on Avebury, including Stonehenge some twenty miles away. Powerful earth energy currents, including the powerful Mary and Michael earth energy currents course through this landscape and this may well be one of the reasons why the majority of crop circles occur within a 10-mile radius of Avebury.  Enjoy a 2 part guided meditation to balance masculine and feminine energy (completed at Chalice Well)

Then visit the remarkable five thousand year old man-made Silbury Hill. Across the field is West Kennet Long Barrow, an underground chamber used both as a tomb and a place of initiation. We will take advantage of its wonderful acoustics and experience a drumming and chanting healing session followed by a visit to tranquil Knoll Down, a sacred grove of trees, originally the ‘tail’ of a Serpent Temple once connected to Avebury stone circle by an avenue of stones stretching for two kilometers.  A similar avenue culminating at The Sanctuary (the ‘head’ of the Serpent Temple) led off in another direction. This remarkable landscape temple is positioned halfway along the famous Michael leyline that runs for 350 miles from coast to coast.

Spend the rest of the afternoon visiting crop circles in the area.

Dinner at the hotel

Day 4, Wed 23 July

Spend the full day in Glastonbury, known as the Isle of Avalon.

Glastonbury Abbey, the birthplace of Christianity in England and referred to as the ‘holiest earth in England’, was once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of Britain. It is no coincidence that the dual energy currents of England’s most famous leyline cross at the site of the high altar. A grave in the centre of the Abbey ruins is reputed to have been the resting place of King Arthur and Guinevere.

Glastonbury is full of unusual shops selling everything from candles and incense to crystals, books and Goddess statues that you can peruse at your leisure during a long lunch break.

Rising dramatically from the flat land of the surrounding Somerset Levels, the huge natural mound of the Tor, surmounted by St. Michael’s tower, has been a beacon of spirituality since pagan times and still acts as a magnet for people of all beliefs. Be enchanted by the stories and legends, mesmerized by the spectacular views and imbued with the powerful energy and atmosphere of this sacred site.

Complete the day in Avalon with a visit to the beautiful and tranquil gardens of Chalice Well. This World Peace Garden is centered on an ancient spring, whose waters are reputed to have therapeutic properties and you are encouraged to drink from the holy well. A local legend states that the Holy Grail is hidden within the wellhead. We conclude the balancing energies meditation in this healing Mecca.

Day 5, Thurs 24 July

With much to assimilate and integrate, spend the morning at leisure enjoying Devizes at your own pace. Today, is “market day”, an English tradition for over hundreds of years and the stalls are conveniently located right outside our hotel. After an early lunch, visit crop circles in the area before visiting Michael Glickman. Michael has been in the forefront of crop circle research for over 20 years and has seen and heard it all. The group will have some exclusive time with the very entertaining Michael and every-one loves these visits.

Dinner at a local pub

Day 6, Fri 25 July 

We start the day with an early morning visit to Stonehenge. We have arranged for the group to have special private access into the stones of the worlds most famous sacred site. Touch the huge megaliths that have stood in magnificent isolation on the windswept Salisbury Plain for thousands of years; feel the pulse of powerful earth energy currents coursing beneath your feet; imagine the ceremonies that have been performed by robed priests over eons of time and take part in an exciting release ceremony. This is a rare opportunity to truly experience a site revered by countless generations up close and personal.

After breakfast in a nearby hotel, depart for the medieval cathedral and sightseeing in Salisbury. Those booked on the optional extra helicopter flight, will be whisked off to the local airfield for a flight over the crop circles in small chartered helicopters – giving a birds eye-view of the circle-makers exquisite works of art – a highlight for many!

Return to the hotel mid afternoon.
