You know, we’ve repeatedly heard similar comments from our happy and satisfied travellers – that as well as the wonderful sacred sites we visit, people are inspired by the breath-taking diverse scenery of England, the quaint villages with their cute country cottages and how we live daily with ancient history in our midst such as the medieval cathedrals that have held daily services for nearly a thousand years.

This is a real opportunity to work on transforming your life and aiding our beautiful planet. There will also be time to relax, and enjoy this beautiful part of France, staying with Julie or a nearby hotel.

Women’s Journey to Avalon Tour

May 21st – 29th, 2015
9 days / 8 nights

“I dreamt of you in Glastonbury. You opened a curtain into Avalon, and lifted me in…”  

~ from ”The Mists of Avalon


Glastonbury has long been acknowledged as the location of the mystical land of Avalon and the burial site of King Arthur and Queen Guinevere; a place beyond the veil of human sight and one only those who have reached deep inside their soul can see. Spirit Sisters, if you’ve ever felt a connection with Camelot, Tintagel, the healing waters of the Chalice Well, or felt called to walk with the ancients at Stonehenge, this journey will speak to you.

A Quest of the Heart

The quest for Avalon, the Lady of the Lake, Excalibur and the Holy Grail, have long been sought after by seers, magicians, kings and noble knights – it represents the classic story of the eternal journey for peace, restoration and integrity. These stories represent your journey, mine, and all of humanity‘s to the heart of who we truly are. We invite you to quest with us and cross over the threshold of time as we open the curtain to Avalon.


This will be a very special one-of-kind tour with your experienced trip leader Cameron Broughton. – We will be joined by local experts along the way who will share the many secrets of these ancient lands, hidden behind the veil of modern society. Together they will share and guide us into the heart and soul of these sacred places and into the mystery and magic of our personal grail quests.

The Heart of Sacred Britain

We’ll have private time at Stonehenge, visit Glastonbury, Chalice Well, Tintagel, Merlin‘s Cave, Dozmary Pool, St Nectan‘s Glen, Bath, Wells, and Salisbury! Honouring our sacred feminine through ceremony and celebration will be a highlight of this journey. Join us on this woman‘s quest to illuminate our integrity, power and glory.

“The grail is made in the image of ourselves, our mind the vessel, our body the stem… Drink up and be ruler of thine own destiny.” – King Arthur to his Knights of the Round Table.

Wales – The Land of Legend

June 18-28, 2015
11 Days / 10 nights

In eleven days we travel through breathtaking countryside, see stunning coastline, take a train ride up Mount Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales and visit memorable sites. Ancient dolmens and cairns, a legendary Abbey, cathedrals, village churches, traditional historic towns, the capital city, wells, waterfalls and two castles, including having a medieval banquet in one of them! 

Wales is majestic and otherworldly – lush green valleys filled with morning mist, craggy mountain peaks reaching through the clouds, sacred sites that span five thousand years and a formidable reputation founded on legends of druids, wizards, dragons and witches. As the last retreat of the inhabitants of ancient Albion, the Welsh are still connected to the ‘olde ways’. Even today this depth of history and tradition is present in the very fabric of the land.

Our journey takes us on a circular route through this small but diverse country, while also leading us through five millenia of history, culture and varied ancient sacred sites - all set in breath-taking scenery! Although the Welsh language is spoken in some areas everyone speaks English and so its a very traveller-friendly country to visit.

Tour includes -

  • Spectacular coastal and mountain scenery
  • Mount Snowdon train ride
  • Ancient sacred sites dating back over 5,000 years
  • Preseli, source of the Stonehenge Bluestones
  • Isle of Anglesey, home of the Druids
  • Visit Castles & experience a Medieval Banquet

Magic of Celtic Ireland Tour

August 18-27, 2015
10 days/ 9 nights

There is a magic about Ireland which is recognized by people worldwide, maybe because its name means Land of the Goddess Eriu. Be open to magic and it will happen! – our Celtic ancestors knew this and they are inviting you to do the same…

The varied landscape of lush green meadows, mountain ranges and spectacular coastline certainly lead one to believe that this land is blessed and stories of fairy folk and leprechauns also reflect the belief that the land has guardians. Our travels will take us back in time and into the realms of myth, legend and deep wisdom as we make a journey through some of the most magical counties of the Republic of Ireland, visiting sites revered as sacred by Pagans and Christians for thousands of years. This opens a doorway for each of us to discover forgotten aspects of our inner world…

The Highlands & Islands of Scotland Tour and Orkneys’ Mysteries Revealed Add-on

September 17-25, 2015 & 25-27 add-on
9 days/8 nights

The Call

Do you have Scottish  ancestors who are drawing you? or did William Wallace or Robert the Bruce reach out down the centuries to touch you? or maybe you’ve heard the call of Bonnie Scotland within your soul like the ‘pipes’ sounding down the glens… each of us is called for a different and personal reason

Join us in exploring some of the stunningly beautiful Western Isles and remarkable and mysterious places in the Highlands and Central Lowlands of Scotland. We are offering this journey because some of the most powerful and dramatic sacred sites in the British Isles are hidden away ‘North of the Border’.

Most of the western isles of Scotland are relatively small and off the beaten track yet their reputations around the world are impressive. Who has not heard of the Isle of Iona or Mull? Their stunning beauty and dramatic location certainly help, and so does another unseen mysterious quality – the power and energy in the land.
