‘Seven Crowning Stars’ Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela
May 18 - May 25
The purpose of this pilgrimage is to explore, learn about, enjoy and enhance a magical landscape templein Galicia. This is a unique journey to Santiago de Compostela. We will visit many of the places well known to pilgrims on the Camino. However, we will divert from the ‘French Way’ and go north to the coast and part-encircle Santiago de Compostela, pilgrimaging to the seven stars of the crown chakra of Europe. This pilgrimage relates closely to our earlier pilgrimages in Portugal,as the seven stars include the higher crown chakras ofthe three Portuguese ‘Great Pillars’, which are at Ponferrada, Lugo and Santiago de Compostela.

Europe takes its name from the classical myth of Europa and the Bull, and mainland Europe can indeed be seen imaginatively as a ‘bull’, with the British Isles seated on its neck as ‘Europa’. Spain and Portugal are the ‘head of the bull’. Santiago de Compostela focuses the crown chakra of the European ‘Bull’ landscape temple. 2021 is a ‘Holy’or ‘Jubilee’ year, in which St James’ Day falls on a Sunday. This last happened in 2010 and will not occur again until 2027. Holy years are consideredto be very powerful and important years to pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
