9. From Heathrow: Sacred England 8-Day Guided Tour
Day One: Arrival. Monday
We will whisk you up from the airport and drive you to the magical lands of Glastonbury, where you can settle into your accommodation. Meeting 2:30 pm at Heathrow Airport Terminal 2 Arrivals, it is a three-hour drive to Glastonbury.
At 7:30 pm there is an optional Healing Mediation Group at The Arimathean Retreat, where Tor often does a channeling.
Day Two: The Quest of Avalon. Tuesday
Begin your day with a guided walk across Avalon, be transported back 2000 years through the mists, to a time of magic, myths, and legends, a time when the family of Christ arrived to these shores of Avalon. Stand next to the Holy Thorn Tree which grew from the staff given to Joseph of Arimathea, by Jesus himself. He planted the staff as a symbol of the birth of a new way, the early Christian way, and worked with the Pagans and Druids who had used the ancient Isle of Avalon as a site for spiritual initiation for thousands of years.
Then be guided, via the hidden chapel of St Margret, to the site of the Wattle Church in the center of the Glastonbury Abbey. The Wattle Church is England’s first ever building for Christian worship, built by Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea in 62AD. A few steps away we find the last resting place of King Arthur and Gwynevere and find out why it is there and how they are linked to the family of Christ.
The windows within St Johns church perfectly paint a picture of the hidden stories of old.
We go on our quest for the Holy Grail, said to be buried under the Chalice Well. Find out why these waters in this tranquil garden are said to be healing by drinking them yourself. Balance the red waters, the female energies of the Chalice Well, with the waters of the White Spring, the male energies, which is very close by, in a beautiful candle-lit water temple (you may find a naked bather or two, so please let us know if you would prefer to not witness this.)
We leave the best for last, a climb to the top of the Glastonbury Tor. Witness the amazing energies of the Tor, find out why these hills are called sleeping dragons, and look out over the sacred landscape all the way to Wales.
Day Three: Six thousand years of mystery in one day. Wednesday.
Tor’s Tour of Stonehenge is unlike any. The way he shares his visions of a world hardly known by historians is as if you are being transported into a timeless dream and seeing the ancients magically erecting the stone circle and aligning them to the solstices and equinoxes in person. He then takes you to a very special site that is only visited by 1% of tourists, here you can walk amongst 5000 years of history and imagine their motivation of creating such amazing sites.
After a great British pub lunch, we head off to Avebury, the largest surviving stone circle in the world, a site where you sit in the seat of the ancient Arch Druids and learn about the stars in the way they taught. You feel the energies of the Michael ley line that travels perfectly up the serpent-like stone avenue, you will learn how the ancients aligned the stones to the stars, balanced the sacred masculine and sacred feminine with their stone circles, then you will enter a church from the Saxon period, 1000 years of worship and see the famous dragon font. Then you will get to visit the famous Silbury Hill which modern historians believe to have been an ancient pyramid. You will not forget this day in a hurry, traveling through time with Tor’s magical vision of delights.
Day Four: Merlin’s Journey. Thursday.
These are two days fit for any goddess or knight in search of the Holy Grail or Excalibur. We drive through the lands of these legends and present the truth hidden in a landscape where dragons fly and crystals emerge from the ground, where you meet real earth energy workers, witches, and saints.
We begin the day by driving down the Michael ley line into the wilds of Dartmoor, where we cross bridges over 4000 years old and wander in the magical Wistman’s Faerie Wood. We then dine, as nobles do, at the Hunting Lodge in the middle of the moors. Afterward, we climb up the holy Templar hill, Brentor, where a church greets us, perched on its peak as if held up only by magic and the energies of the Michael ley line.
We arrive in Tintagel where we settle into our B&B, and go for an extremely delicious dinner at the Wellington Hotel.
Day Five: King Arthur's Cornwall. Friday.
We start the day in the amazing town of Tintagel as the tide reveals one of the most magical places, where it is said Merlin himself worked and initiated druids, we will bravely clamber into ‘Merlin's Cave’ where we will do a visualization. As we emerge from the darkness of the cave, we will visit Tintagel Castle Island, which is perched on the cliffs above the cave. Here we will place our foot where King Arthur himself was crowned (Sadly most of 2019 Tintagel Island and Merlin’s Cave are closed to build and bridge, but we will be able to get close and see it.)
Then we walk back into the little village and have a taste of the most famous Cornish lunch. Then we will walk into the mystically beautiful St Nectan's Glen and waterfall. Here space is held for the Fairies and the spirit of the 5th century Celtic Christian Saint Nectan. This is said to be the place where the Knights of the Round Table came to be blessed before their quest for the Holy Grail. In the afternoon we travel back to Glastonbury.
Day Six: Return journey. Saturday.
You will find that your journey into the sacred lands of Avalon, Cornwall, Stonehenge, and Avebury will open doors into magical places in your psyche, so it is good for you to spend a little time in silent reflection in the sacred landscape, processing and familiarising your self with your new connections and abilities. We suggest you choose where you would like to be - Chalice Well, the Abbey, the White Spring, the Tor or finding the last magical tool from one of the many shops to take home with you to remind you of your magical trip.
Or you may like to book in for an hour-long healing and channeling session with Tor, at 10 am or 11:30 am or 1 pm.
Day Seven: a Taste of Glastonbury, Sunday.
On this day, May I suggest you try some of the many therapies on offer in Glastonbury, at a special Tor’s Tours discounted price.
Healing and Channelling from Lisehanne Webster, Deep Tissue Massage from Justine, or Sound Healing from Lui.
Day Eight: Travel back to Heathrow, Monday.
We depart Glastonbury at 10:30 am and we will arrive back at Heathrow before 2 pm.
Whilst we travel we can talk about your amazing adventures through the sacred landscapes of England or just reminisce on all your adventures and recall the delights of Tor's Tours and we hope to see you again.
