Weekend Workshop – Dartmoor Landscapes
July 3-4 2021 and repeated on September 11-12, 2021
Led by Peter Knight and Sue Wallace. The object of the weekend is for attendees to connect on a deeper level with this magical landscape. We shall walk in the footsteps of our ancestors, at stone rows and stone circles, and will be introduced to the concept that the landscape features in themselves were sacred to our prehistoric ancestors. Includes balanced stones, caverns on rocky tors, dowsing the energies of stone rows and circles, shamanic drumming, propped stones, drinking water from ancient rock basins; some silent walking and meditations will also be a part of this interactive and experiential weekend. We hope it will be a profound experience for you.
Sites visited on the Saturday will be Great Staple Tor, Middle Staple Tor and Roos Tor (rock basins, simulacra, granite stacks, logan stones, propped stone, rock shelter). Will include meditative quiet time and silent walking, and group discussion. In the afternoon we will visit Over Tor, overlooking the Merrivale ceremonial landscape, to interact with simulacra, overhangs, simulacra, plus shamanic drumming. Then we will explore the amazing the Merrivale complex of monuments, including prehistoric settlement, longstones, burial cairns, stone rows and a stone circle; we shall explore the landscape setting, dowse and feel the earth energies, look at landscape alignments and astronomy, and partake silent walking along a stone row.
On Saturday evening there will be a walk to nearby Black Tor, a small granite tor SW of Princetown, which has simulacra and a fabulous balanced stone, and visit a nearby small waterfall, where Sue will lead a water blessing. We hope to witness the sunset around 9.15pm, where we will hold an end of day closing drumming ceremony in the ‘Green Room’, a natural rock sanctuary Pete and Sue discovered.
On Sunday there will gentle walking, with only a gradual ascent, through woodland, including silent walking, to Lakehead Hill, near Postbridge, where we will see and explore the rich array of cairns, burial cists, stone circles and stone rows on this hilltop plateau. Wonderful views and alignments with distant tors. Will include dowsing the energies and a meditation at a stone circle at a quiet location.
Then a short walk up to the summit of Bellever Tor, to see rock basins and wonderful views and do a meditation. Walking back through the woods we will visit a Cairn Circle and burial cists, and end with a closing drumming circle in the woods, and share our experiences of the weekend.
Able walkers only. Numbers limited – advance booking only (this weekend is usually fully-booked!). £80 for the weekend, or £45 for any one day. Social distancing will be observed if still relevant.
