Solstice Gathering

We going to gather at the Coldrum Long Barrow (or stones) to celebrate the Solstice - feel the energy, put out the intent for what we all want, meditate and share some food. Via the Unify group, people are gathering at sacred sites across the world this Solstice to meditate for the healing of the planet. The Druid Network says: 'At the foot of the steep slope of the chalky North Downs, lies a place that holds the stories of the Neolithic Ancestors of the Medway valley. Kent is not known for its prehistoric megaliths, yet here deep in this valley where the weald expands beyond to the horizon; sits one of the best preserved long barrows in the south east. It’s a place of immense peace and tranquillity; even the sceptical and insensitive of people never fail to be touched by its presence of serenity. William Borlas in 1754 wrote in his, Antiquities of Cornwall, that Coldrum’s name was believed to have been derived from the Cornish word ‘Galdrum’, meaning a ‘Place of enchantment’, whether this is true or pure romanticism, it is a place of enchantment!'

When we know how many are interested in coming, we can arrange to meet before and share cars For anyone going under their own steam, there's a small National Trust Car Park off Pinesfield Lane just beyond Trottiscliffe. We'll watch the weather nearer the time. Suggest you bring something to sit on, warm clothes if there's no heat wave, shoes for walking through fields and a picnic if you like.

Also bring anything you would like to bring such as crystals, flowers, any sound instruments...

    Hi all, Will be at George Inn car park, Trottscliffe at 6 pm today
    http://www.thegeorgekent.co.uk/our-location
    and then going on to the National Trust car park near the stones (see map at top) and walking there. So far, think I'm meeting Miriam and friend at George car park (and possibly Denise), and Si and Michael and Melanie are making their own way. Let me know if things change. See you there :). F

    Hi Fiona,

    My Reiki 2 now finishes at 4 and the crystals workshop is straight after so I'm not sure what time I'll get away. I will come straight there from Surrey so will definitely see you there at some point. I went down there last Saturday to check where it was so I know where am going. I had a bit of a med when I was there and apparently need to bring some parsley seeds on Saturday - so if anybody has ideas what that's all about please let me know! See you there. Si

    Hi all, If anyone wants to go together, I suggest we meet in the car park of the George Inn at Trottiscliffe near the stones at 6 pm. Alternatively, I'm picking Liz up from West Malling train station at 5.30 pm. Here's the location of the inn: http://www.thegeorgekent.co.uk/our-location
    It's just off the A20 past Addington and the Seeker's Trust (near West Malling). And there's a big car park.
    Look forward to seeing you!

    Hello Melanie, I am sorry but will not be joining everyone at Coldrum Longbarrow but will be heading to Bude, Cornwall for a week. This was a very spontaneous decision taken yesterday and the universe conspired to make it happen with immediate effect! How 'odd' that your write of Borlas's Galdrum and its deeper meaning of enchantment. I will too be with you in spirit but will myself be in the woodlands near Tintagel this special night. I think it so pertinent that you remind us that we can call on our Spirit Family to guide and support us in our 'right livelihood and soul expression'. Thank-you. Think this is a very important time to focus on love and light and blessing given the hard times so many face in the Middle East and Africa. May we hold these regions in our hearts with deep compassion and love.

    Phew that's why I keep falling asleep! Meg Benedicte says: 'It's been an intense couple days with the Full Moon energies and Solar Flares sparking electric. As sensitive Light Beings, you may be feeling a sense of overload and exhaustion during the days leading up to the Solstice on June 21st. We are entering the Stargate portal of Ascension, when the veils thin between the dimensions and our psychic abilities increase. Now is the time to call on our Spirit Family to guide and support us in our 'right livelihood' and soul expression. As the illusion dissolves and collapses around us, an awakening of Universal Truth appears on the horizon. So many souls will 'open their eyes' and realize the world does not appear as it used to be. The 'game' is over!

    As we prepare for the powerful Light Activations during the Solstice Gateway, take some time to tune inward and nourish your 'inner wellspring'!'

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
