Talks in Detail 2004
January 15th - The Spirit of the Labyrinth.
The Labyrinth is divine, mysterious and magical. It has been with us for thousands of years and can still be found today in various forms all over the world. As a natural spiral, it has been adopted by many cultures throughout history as a tool for healing, meditation, self-discovery and connecting with spiritual ancestors. Caroline has connected with earth energies through the labyrinth for several years, introducing others to build and walk the labyrinth. With slides she will cover labyrinths past and present and how we can connect with them to enhance enlightenment, vision and harmony.

June 3rd - Britains Prehistoric and Celtic Shamanic Practices.
The roots of British shamanism (natural magic, witchcraft and paganism) extend from the Neolithic stone circle builders. Through myth and legend we can discern knowledge of their shamanic practices. One result is the Celtic lunar calendar, based on the 6th C. Gaulish calendar discovered in 1897 at Coligny in France. The system is native to Western Europe, having developed from the ritual calendar of the megalith builders. Serena Roney-Dougal holds a PhD in Parapsychology and is the author of "Where Science and Magic Meet" (Vega Books) and "The Faery Faith" (Green Magic). She has spent over 30 years studying the scientific, magical and spiritual aspects of the psyche, holding lectures and workshops in the USA, Europe and India, and presently lectures on Parapsychology in India during the winter.

Heather is from New Zealand and has studied sculpture, etheric movement, geometry and esoteric teachings.
