'Sacred Journeys for Womyn'
'Sacred Journeys for Womyn' was founded in 1996 in order to address the need for a new social paradigm. Many people are turning to ancient spiritual traditions in order to find a way to create balance in their lives. Often, these traditions center around reverence for the female and express a balance between male and female energies. In these traditions, the Goddess, in her many forms, is the core religious symbol. She is the symbol to which many are now turning for spiritual sustenance and growth.
Scholars and guides present information on the sacred sites and mythology of the areas we visit. Through ceremony, informal lectures, healing circles and dance we connect to the earth-based spirituality of our foremothers encoded in these ancient sites.
Through the combined knowledge and experience of the group facilitators, women are encouraged to connect with our healing energy through mind, body and spirit.
We travel to places where the Goddess has been honored, both secretly and openly, for millennia. The tours are provided exclusively for women and are educational, experiential, healing, and most of all exciting and joyous adventures.

In the morning we drive down to the ancient homeland of the Celts
in England - Cornwall. Our group will stay in Cornwall for at a wonderful
retreat center. In the grounds of the center lays an ancient site known as a 'Fogou'.
Cornwall has an incredible windswept landscape and some of the
most spectacular sacred sites off the tourist map. Some of the places
we visit include Tintagel Castle, legendary birthplace of King Arthur,
Men-an-Tol the holed stone which is reputed to make women fertile,
standing stones, stone circles and ancient Holy Wells dedicated
to the Goddess's healing powers.
After Cornwall we extend our Journey into the Heart of Avalon - Glastonbury.
We spend six nights at another comfortable retreat center.
Located in beautiful landscape next to a nature reserve and an
ancient faerie fort. The fourteenth & seventeenth century farm
buildings have been restored to their former glory with tasteful
modern comforts and the medieval feel of the place is augmented
with 1990's luxury. The center hosts a meditation room, hot tub,
and wonderful grounds and more. Please see accommodations for photos
After settling in to the center, we drive the very short distance to town,
to attend the Third Annual Goddess Conference. There will be a host
of women scholars, artists and researchers presenting.
The conference continues over the weekend, climaxing with a
Masque Banquet Ball. Our group hopes to attend all three days
of the conference, and the 3 day entrance fee, is included in the tour fee.
While at Glastonbury we will visit Stonehenge for a private viewing
at sunset on the day of the Total Solar Eclipse. Usually at Stonehenge
the monument can only be seen from a distance of 50 yards. For our
group we have special permission to go beyond the ropes, and actually
be within the ancient monument. This is the first Total Solar Eclipse in Europe in 72 years,
and the last one of the Millennium.
From our retreat center in Glastonbury we shall visit Avebury stone circle,
Silbury Hill, West Kennett Burial Chamber and several other local sacred sites.
We are delighted to have the prehistorian, author and artist, Michael
Dames with us on this day.
Michael will lead us through this ancient landscape, that he has documented
in his books 'Silbury Treasure: The Great Goddess Rediscovered', 'Avebury Cycle'
and 'Mythic Wales' (forthcoming).
Please see our facilitators page for more information on Michael.
