Spiritual Tour to Visit England's Sacred Pilgrimage Sites


November 7, 2007 - Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury are some of England's most famous ancient pilgrimage sites to be visited on a spiritually-oriented group tour next spring, offered by Sacred Earth Journeys of Vancouver, Canada.


Magdalene, the Grail, and a full moon ceremony amidst the ancient stones of what once was Camelot are all part of the backdrop for "Return to Avalon" - a 10-day tour designed to honor the feminine, inspire personal evolution and promote planetary peace. The tour includes a private evening entrance to Stonehenge during the Wesak full moon for a special ceremony dedicated to creating harmony and healing for our Mother Earth.


Tour Leader, Karen Rae Wilson, a Celtic singer and visionary, is the founder of Wisdom Culture Consulting - a leading edge company dedicated to inspiring personal leadership and social change. Wilson has worked with traditional knowledge and with many indigenous elders around the world. Ms. Wilson has sung internationally for many prestigious events including the United Nations Conference for Women in Beijing, The State of the World Forum in Belfast, and the Future Visions Conference for the Millennium Summit in New York. An accomplished writer and composer in her own right, she has performed an original one-woman show, "Many Women, One Voice," for captivated audiences in the USA.


Celtic women were renowned for their passionate spirits and feminine leadership and Wilson is no exception. Throughout the tour, she will offer songs, stories, ceremonies and insights on how the knowledge and power of these sacred places can ignite both our personal sense of purpose and planetary change.


The tour will include visiting Glastonbury Abbey and Chalice Wells - long associated with King Arthur, Genevieve and the Grail.  Other tour itinerary features include the Avebury stone circle, Silbury Hill, Salisbury Cathedral, Stourhead Gardens, Bath, London's Temple Church of the Knights Templar, Westminster Abbey and a final cruise on the Thames.


"This tour is a journey of initiation that will inspire the sacred feminine," said Helen Tomei, president of Sacred Earth Journeys. "I invite other visionary leaders, storytellers, peacemakers, and individuals who want to experience the beauty of the stones to take part in weaving a new legend for the Earth. In these times of global warming and planetary discord I think that perhaps the high priestesses of ancient Avalon will be looking on with interest.” said Tour Leader Karen Rae Wilson.


In addition to group activities, the tour will also give participants free time for individual exploration and shopping, both in the countryside near Wells, and in the heart of London.


Sacred Earth Journeys was honored twice with the “Inspiration Entrepreneur of the Year” award, presented by the BC Urban Entrepreneurial Development Association in 2004 and 2005, and was recently featured in the new book Waking up the West Coast: Healers & Visionaries published by Catalyst Publications (
