Ley Lines & Ancient Sites - Guided Tour - Apollo & Athena July 2, 2015
Celtic Inspiration and Ba Miller would like to take you to three special places in the Penwith peninsula of West Cornwall where we will trace and interact with the Apollo and Athena earth energy lines. Prepare to be amazed and have an adventurous go at dowsing yourself!
After careful consideration we have hand-picked three magical locations on the Apollo and Athena ley lines that will surely leave you breathless and inspired:
1. Zennor Head is a 750 metre long promontory on the Cornish coast overlooking the Atlantic (Athena Line).
"Nature, or perhaps the Giants, had somehow contrived to mark the spot where Athena came ashore after her long swim in the Atlantic Ocean. She should have been tired after her journey from Skellig Michael but wasn't. She felt very lively and the dowsing rods indicated that there was a strong reaction with the land. This feeling is no doubt partly a product of those who inhabited the land for millennia and have left their marks wherever you look. But ther is something even more ancient, a rapport with the rocks themselves". From: The Dance of the Dragon
2. Madron's Well and ancient Celtic baptism in magical woodlands (Apollo Line).
Madron Holly Well is located in one of the most eerie and haunted woodlands in Cornwall; ancient gnarled branches creak and groan in the wind, and deep in the woods the holy well lies guarded by 'cloutie' trees festooned with rags, charms and other offerings left to invoke the miraculous healing properties of the sacred waters. We followed the old path to a ruined, roofless chapel with a granite altar and seats. The atmosphere within was one of deep calm; the sort of calm that strikes deep into the soul'. From: The Dance of the Dragon
3. St. Michael Mount a.k.a. 'the grey rock in the woods' in ancient times, but now a loved pilgrims place in the sea (crossing of Apollo & Athena Lines).
"When we look at the Mount today, floating ethereally in its sheltered bay, it is easy to forget that the island is really a drowned mountain, part of a land that stretched as far as the Isles of Scilly. Dowsing the dimensions of the Apollo and Athena lines as they came together at the centre of the rocky platform we could feel the power rushing through; the exact place where the currents crossed seemed to create a vortex of energy that made the spine tingle". From: The Dance of the Dragon
Experiencing the ley lines
This tour aims to visit all three places by keeping to a strict time schedule. At each location you will have time to have a look around, take part in a guided meditation to get you into a receptive state in preparation for dowsing, and to get a feel of the particular earth energy line. After you have watched or taken part in dowsing in order to map where the line runs, a further deepening of the contact with the Spirit of Place/Line is offered during a shamanic journey. Then, you will witness the impact of human consciousness on the line. At the end of the day you will probably also have got a good sense of the different feel to the Apollo line and the Athena line.
You will be guided by Nathascha & Mario from Celtic Inspiration who have been escorting tours to ancient sacred sites and leading shamanic retreats since 2004, and by Ba Miller, whom we lovingly named 'the Grandmother of Dowsing', and who was part of the original team that mapped out the Apollo and Athena lines from Ireland and across Europe to Israel. This trio has much to share with you on this unique escorted tour.
An 'Adventures on the Apollo and Athena lines' tour ticket costs £50.
There's a special discount when taking both tours ('Adventures on the Apollo and Athena' plus 'Musings on the Mary and Michael lines tour): £80.
Ticket fee is non-refundable ( unless we have to cancel). It is however allowed to give your ticket to a friend or sell your ticket to another person in case you have to cancel.

Visiting special places in the land, we focus on offering our participants a glimpse of the sacredness and interconnectedness of all things and how ancient mindset can help reveal and inspire healing of the loss of that spiritual vision. In our tours we use the dowsing rods to make visible how Consciousness or Spirit (of the land, a place, an earth energy line etc) is interacting with us and how it responds to our communication with it. The dowsing is mainly done by the organisers to locate and mark the manifestations of the above mentioned. However should you want to have a go and see and feel the rods move for yourselves, then with some basic instruction of how to hold the rod and what to focus on, you can try it yourselves.
