We were heading to the standing stones of Callanish on the Isle of Lewis in far north Scotland.  We were to be part of a shamanic astrology gathering.  Ten days on this isolated wind swept island working with the lunar eclipses and the stone circles.

Thirty participants from all over the world attended and contributed.  We performed ceremony in honour of the Ancestors amongst the stone circles.  We were working on releasing all that is outdated and creating a clear space for fresh new energy to emerge.  It was an amazing experience.  It was a privilege to be part of this.

There were four Aussies in the group – four of us who had worked together in the past.  Penny, Kathleen, Michael and I. Kathleen made her own way to Callanish.  But we collected Penny in London and hit the road north.  We travelled through Salisbury and Glastonbury, up the length of Wales and into Scotland.  Cold, wet, windy and deliciously green.

After Callanish, the three of us headed down to the sacred island of Iona.  A most magical place indeed.  We visited the community of Findhorn, drove the entire far north coast of Scotland, and finished with the druid wells of Dunino near Edinburgh and Roslyn Chapel.
