Spirituality of the Land
A Day Symposium
Organised by Hieros, in association with the Temenos Academy
http://www.hieros.world

Across Western Europe, the Anglo-Celtic Isles, North America, and Australia are countless ancient sacred sites. Megaliths, cairns, and other stones or rock formations often mark the sacred places whose mysteries are conveyed in myths. In this one-day symposium we will explore new ways of understanding our relationship with the landscape, as marked by sacred places interwoven with myths and ancient mysteries. What are the mysteries and hidden aspects of the ancient landscapes right around us?
