This land is holy ground

as our feet walk on the earth

the soul of our feet

meeting the soul of the earth

We become intertwined

our lightness and depth connects with sky

our depth and lightness connects with ground 

where is your place of Holy Ground?

which route would you take?

how will you travel there?

what will you take with you

to connect with this experience?

 

We invite you to make a journey

to your place of Holy ground

to

listen in and to listen within to what speaks to you

  

This is a Call for fellow pilgrims

 

           Pilgrims to "redraw topography as a sacred field, rendering the whole landscape as a sacred field of power" Alison Millbank 

 

Every step we make is a scared step upon the earth – whether in urban or rural locations. We are looking to connect with beings who are interested in pilgrimage or have experience of being on pilgrimage.

 

We would like to create a community of pilgrims involved in multiple acts of sacred movement and quests over the landscape – to create a sacred field between now and 2021. This community will exist as different shapes and layers of holding and interrelating. All participation will develop into an online community with the invitation to also become part of a collective performance in Spring/Summer 2021.

 

How to be involved

Holy Ground Seeding Practices 

  • Listen to the sound piece on this page with the beginning text - and feel into a place that you would like to go - and what you will take with you 

  • If this is a place you have journeyed to before allow there to be something different in the way that you travel there

  • Carry with you the intention of the notion of Holy Ground and the awareness of the community from the Temple and the Church who are part of the group in London

  • Journey into the landscape or route of your choice

  • Find a way to document the journey however if feels right 

  • By email send us the reflections of your process this can be in writing, sound, painting, image, photography 

  • Mark the journey on a map and send us a photograph – or representation of the route that you took

These processes will develop a series of sacred journeys over the land becoming energy lines and root makers to produce the sacred field across the landscape. Contributions will be uploaded to our website as a holding place - please be in touch if you have any questions.

For longer forms of participation
