Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela
Led by Peter and Sarah Dawkins and Jonathan Tod, the purpose of this pilgrimage is to explore, learn about, enjoy and enhance a magical landscape temple in Galicia. This is a unique journey to Santiago de Compostela. Besides visiting some of the places well known to pilgrims on the Camino, we will divert from the main Camino (the French Way) and go north to the coast and part-encircle Santiago de Compostela, before ending up there. In this way we will visit the ‘Seven Stars’ of the crown chakra of Europe.
The journey follows a shape which is similar to the shape of an Egyptian Adze, the tool used in the mummification process by the Ancient Egyptians to ‘open the mouth’ of the pharaoh’s ascended soul, so that he can speak the truth or Word of God and thereby help those incarnate on earth. The Adze is patterned on and represents the constellation of Ursa Major, the Great Bear, home of the Seven Rishis.
This pilgrimage relates closely to our earlier pilgrimages in Portugal, as the journey includes the higher crown chakras of the three Portuguese ‘Great Pillars’, which are at Ponferrada, Lugo and Santiago de Compostela.
We will be travelling by coach from Bilbao to Burgos, Castrojeriz, León, Astorga, El Cruz e Ferro, Ponferrada, Villafranca del Bierzo, Lugo, A Coruna, Muxia, Finisterre, and Santiago de Compostela.
We are making this journey as a pilgrimage, in the sense of honouring the places by greeting, appreciating and enjoying them, their people and each other. We have two principles which we endeavour as a group to fulfil, which are to make the effort to love who we are with, wherever we are and whatever we are doing, and to do the right thing, in the right place, at the right time, and with the right intention. In this way we can enhance the places and the whole landscape temple, enthusing it with love and thereby helping to transform the planetary energies into ethereal ‘light’. In such ways we help to build the ‘light body’ of the planet, which in turn affects consciousness everywhere in beneficial ways.
In addition, by pilgrimaging in this way within the Bull of Europe, we can help Europe to metaphorically breathe its physical breath in conjunction with its spiritual breath (inspiration). Taurus, the Bull, is associated with the throat chakra; Europa is associated with the alta-major chakra. The former is represented by mainland Europe, the latter by the British Isles. The former is the gateway for the physical breath, the latter for the spiritual breath. The two breaths, breathing in harmony, are what the world needs, and what each pilgrim can perform as an act of loving service.
